The transformer on these units contains an internal fuse that may have blown. With the unit unplugged, measure across the primary winding of the transformer. It should read low ohms. If you get infinity, the primary is open and will require replacement.

I have a GE Advantium Oven that just suddenly quit working...no signs of life. Could it be a fuse and if so, where is it located on the unit and where can I find one to replace it?


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

There's only one way to check the transformer and that's with a voltmeter. If there is mains going in but nothing coming out of the secondary, then that fuse has gone. They are not designed to be replaced and Transformers are what the trade call 'Safety Parts'. So they have to be replaced with the same thing. I would contact Teac and find out if they still do make them or where you can get one from.

The only simple way that I could think of is for you to purchase a STEP DOWN TRANSFORMER rated at 500 watt, 110 volts, 60cycle. The transformer inside that amplifier have four output 12v and 15v DC.2amps It will be hard to get the transformer for that! Hope that might help you! taah!

Well since we in the UK use 240 volts and over the sea they use 120 volts, it should be no surprise why it no longer works. What the effect is couldn't be any clearer. Since most units only use around 30 volts to work, a transformer is employed to knock the mains down. These have what is known as a primary winding, this takes the mains, however the coil of wire will be designed for the mains it is going to be connected with. If it is connected to one greater they tend to burnt out. Often transformers have fuses built. However they don't tend to be replacable. So you will almost for certain need a new transformer. If you are really lucky a fuse might have been employed in the power leads going to the transformer. As long as it wasn't rated a 250 volts it could have gone and transformer is OK. BUT I WOULDN'T BANK ON IT!
Now you have an option, you could replace the transformer with the same type (which you would need to do for safety reasons) or you can get a very experinced technical person, to replace the transformer with one that will meet safety standards and have a 250 volt primary, for the UK. You can even get them that have two mains, one 250 and one 120!
If you just go for the replacement then you will still need a mains adapter.
PS There might be other damage, such as the mains switch!

Tv won't turn on


I assume you do not have any red light showing on the front of the TV to indicate it is receiving power? Again assuming the your mains electric supply is functioning & the fuse in the TV plug is ok, if there are no signs of life & then most likely a fuse in the power supply may have blown. If you have a multimeter you could remove the rear of the TV & check the fuses in the power supply, if these are ok then you will need to check any supply voltages coming from the power board. If one of the fuses are open circuit, check some of the doides or transistors for any short circuits. If you are not comfortable doing this, then it would be advisible to contact a repair service centre.
