Hi,

Offhand, a no reading on the continuity does not necessarily mean that the fuse is blown though of course it is a possibility. Since most current designs of power supplies uses SMPS (switch mode), there would be no apparent resistance measurable at the AC plug. This is unlike the conventional power system where one can measure the primary windings of the transformer of the power supply. Further diagnosis of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, continued use of a DVM and perhgaps even a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If there is no continuity on the extension, then the extension is faulty.

    If you use the multimeter on the two different pins of the extension plug (the one that goes to AC socket, getting open is normal.

    You need to check continuity with the multimeter at the two ends of the extension, on the same cable.

    I am not sure if this is the problem, please re-state,

I purchased a replacement power cord for my Bowflex TC3000. I plugged in the new cord and it is not working. Is there a known incompatibility with after market power cords for this machine?


If you have access to an ohm meter then you can verify if the plug is good or bad and you can use a volt meter to verify that the outlet is working or not. The first video shows a generic way to ohm out an extension cord. this will also work with yours. The second shows you how to check voltage at an outlet.

Panasonic microwave will not power on


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Inspect the power cord Unplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
  2. Bad door switch If your microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is necessary.
  3. Blown fuses To determine if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the fuse.
  4. Bad fan motor Locate the fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the fan has gone bad and requires replacement.

Replacing and configuring a main power board to a Plasma display is not a simple job as you thinks. With only a multimeter, you can't do anything. It is a skilled work. Contact any experienced service technician. If you wish to get more details about the repair process of plasma displays, check this link. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

Heater will not shut off it will run 24hrs. even when temp. is above heater setting


seethis procedure and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Connect the test leads to your DMM. Insert the black lead in the black "common" socket and push the red lead in the red socket labeled "volts, ohms, milliamperes." Set the function switch on your DMM to the "ohms" function.
    • 2 Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the space heater's back cover and disconnect the power cord from the switch and heating element
    • 3 Check the power cord for a broken wire. Touch one test probe to first one blade, then the other blade on the plug and then touch the other probe to the other end of the power cord. If the wire is working, there should be an indication of 0.00 to 0.5 ohms between each blade on the plug and a different end of the power cord. If the meter indicates "O.L." on one or both sides of the cord, the wire is defective. Most often, the wire will be broken right at the molded plug or inside the plug. The easiest way to fix this problem is to replace the cord set.
    • 4 Check between the two sides of the power cord for a 0.00 to 0.5 ohms reading indicating a short between the two sides of the line cord. If the heater tripped a circuit breaker, there is a short circuit somewhere in the heater wiring. Shorts in a power cord usually occur inside the molded plug. The short could be inside the cord set, if it has been pinched or cut. Fix by replacing the cord set.
    • 5 Check the thermostatic switch by placing one test probe on each of the switch terminals. Turn the switch slowly through its complete range. The DMM should indicate a continuous 0.00 to 0.5 ohms throughout the switch's full range of movement. An "O.L." indication here indicates a faulty switch, and you need to replace it. The reason that a functional switch could read 0.5 ohms and not 0.00 ohms is that some DMMs read their internal fuse's resistance.
    • 6 Check the heating element for an open circuit or short circuit. A typical radiant heating element will have a resistance of roughly 15 to 30 ohms. A burned out heating element will read "O.L." and need to be replaced. A reading significantly lower than 15 ohms indicates a shorted or partially shorted heating element, and it needs to be replaced.
    • 7 Reconnect the wires that you disconnected earlier and plug the heater in. Check the blower motor voltage if the heating element gets hot but the fan does not work. This is the only test that you will have to make with the heater plugged in, so use caution here.
    • 8 Set the DMM for "AC volts" and touch the test probes to the motor leads. A reading of 115 volts here indicates a defective fan motor, and you need to replace it.

I have a new HP mini and last night my husband used it for just a minute but turned it off by clicking on "shut down" from the menu. Now it does not come on at all. How to I turn it back on? ...


There should be a power button on the laptop somewhere, just push it and the machine should boot back up no problem. The menu option is the normal method for shutting down so it should not cause any problems. Just make sure your power cord is plugged in in case your battery is dead.

Good luck ad please comment back if this was helpful.

Radiant heating elements


Check the element with an OHM meter.

This is not rocket science and an OHM meter can be used for many things. Any good appliance parts place, even Wal-Mart will have a meter which can be set to test AC/DC, OHM's etc. Set the meter on OHM setting and touch the two leads on the meter together, you will see the meter arm move. This is simply a test for continuity. Now take the element out of the Range, touch one lead to one end of the element and the other lead to the other end. If you do not get any reading then there is a break inside the element and must be replaced. If you get any reading at all then the element is good and the eye switch must be replaced.

There are some parts which require knowing how many OHM's but in this case you just need to check for a break inside the element (continuity).

You can check an extension cord this way or set it on the volts setting and check batteries. all kinds of fun.

GE 2200 Dishwasher-no power at all, circuit breakers are fine, switch works


with your volt/ohm meter check for power going to the dishwasher. the power supply is located under the kick panel. the power wire may be shorted out due to poor installation. if you are not comfortable testing power, I would advise calling a professional. If no power is found at the power box (this has a power cord or electrical wire going to it) the problem lies within your house electric. if 120 volts is present, check for power @ the door switch. aftrer that you just need to follow the power wire and see where it stops
If this is a newly built house and new to you the builder may have put a light switch above your counter ,the one you didn't think went to anything, check for that! good luck with it!
