You will have to replace the heat element, because the male terminal is burnt, which causes too much heat at the connection, and causes the wire to burn. If you can clean the terminal to where its shiny it may work otherwise replace the element

I have an Amana dryer model number ned7200tw and a wire keeps burning out but what is causing that to happen


wires that burn out are caused by bad connections at one end or the other. The resistance becomes too great at the connection and the wire becomes an element.

Make sure the wire is clean and shiny and that the connector makes good contact with the wire, and the connector itself makes good contact with it other contact.

You could also replace the wire with a slightly heavier gauge

I HAVE 7.5 HP VERT 80 GAL TANK COMPRSSOR IT KEEPS BURNING CONTACTS ON PRESSURE SWITCH. CONTACTS STICK TOGETHER AND COMPRESSOR WON'T SHUT OFF AFTER REACHING PRESSURE. WHAT'S CAUSING THIS?


There is a capacitor across the contacts
To absorb the inductive collapse if the motor.

But this problem usually only happens to DC motors not AC.

If the starting Cap has 2 leads I'm stumped if it has 3 leads replace it.

The thermostat keeps burning


Check for loose wiring connections between the t-stat and the elements. Sometimes it will melt the wires, sometimes it will burn the contacts inside the thermostat.

check the contact points on the rear of the element they burn off after years of use, if the contacts are still good, Look at the element itself for any white marks on the element, if you see any , the element itself has probably burned out and need replacing , to get to the contacts,, depending on the oven, remove the back they should be right in sight , if you do need to replace the fittings on the wire ends, be sure and get heat range connectors

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but it could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB but the main motor is probably the primary suspect, I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,

My miele microwave is blowing the house fuse once pluged in to power point. Any idea why?


Their is a live wire which contact to the metal body so it contact to the earth cable. This can be by a loose wire, a burn heating element or a burn motor. All the above can lead to direct contact of alive cable mean power cable to earth so the house fuse which is the earth protector is driping off.
Your oven definiatly need to be open and check by and electrician.
Good luck

Dryer turns on but no heat, I don't have the manual so not sure about how it works, there is a swicth that says "air fluff, heated dry & timed cycles" I have tried turning this but nothing happens.


try flipping you breaker off and on 2 or 3 times (hard and fast) if this don't work check element, timer , thermostats and safety switch on motor (check wiring diagram for pin numbers of safety switch)....if this switch goes bad the motor will still run but it wont let power go to element

My dryer throws cold air not hot?


One of three things can stop a dryers element, from heating up. the big red wire going to the motors relay switch could be burned off,that is on the back of the motor itself. two, the element or the wirers conected to it have bad contacts. three the safety thermal cutout devices, have open circuts do to some sort of blockage in the vent pipe.
