Are you testing this tool plugged in? If so you have a ELECTRICAL SHORT that would be potentially dangerous. What I would do it remove the handle half or cover and if there is a cord clamp remove it and then gently pull on one wire at a time and see if they move or completely come out, starting with the power leads. Does the cord have a bulge in it around the area of the cord protector if so that might be an area of concern. What you can do is with your meter check the plug end to the wire in the switch and see if you have continuity. If this doesn't locate your problem I would recommend taking to a repair center for a dielectric test to find the problem which would be more involved. Let me know and be careful

I have a Maytag Centennial electric dryer I have just installed the electrical cord but it will not work I am getting sufficient voltage at both hot leads at the outlet with an even split in voltage when I...

-Here do some test as below:
-Turn your meter to 720 Volt AC.
-Hook up meter to both hot line at outlet. You should have 240 volts.
-If yes. Then Next red lead to 1 hot and black lead to neutral at outlet. Do you have any volts..? (You should have 120 V.)
If Not. the Neutral line has bad connection between outlet
and breaker panel.
-If Yes then check the wire that you just replace.

Good Luck

I want to hard wire an orbit 57894. I cut the cord and there is no ground wire, just one black and one white. what do i do?

You don't need to ground the timer case if it is plastic. That's why there is no ground.It does not need it. Only metal needs to be grounded.

Metabo SBE 750 Have continuity through the trigger

IF you have continuity through the switch and the brushes look good then remove on brush and look at the commutator segments. There should be nice even gaps between each segment. If you have on that a goodbit wider than the others then your rotor is bad. If not then more than likley your stator is bad.

How do you connect the ground wire when converting from a 3 prong cord to a four prong cord?

The ground wire can be attached directly to the metal case of the dryer. Just find a sheet metal screw and if its got a prong, sandwich it between the screw and the case, if its a bare wire then just wrap the wire around the screw and tighten it down.

I am trying to hook up a 3 prong cord into the dryer but I dont know how you hook up the ground wire.

What voltage does the dryer require? There should be a 'nameplate' somewhere on the machine that has the voltage and Gas requirements. (if it isn't a gas dryer then it'll probably be 240 volt. If it is a gas dryer then a standard 120 volt cord should work). Be sure you are attaching the proper cord... The ground wire should be crimped into a ring terminal connector or a spade terminal connector (can be picked up at any hardware store) and screwed onto any metal surface of the machine(there may be a green screw designated for the ground wire connector)

Hello, my Metabo WE14-125 won't work anymore, there's a small red flickering light on my machine and I don't know what it means! At first I thought it were the carbon brushes, so I changed them, but the...

The light is an overload indicator that should come on when the tool is really hot. Internally, a sensor monitors the motor temperature and when the motor becomes too hot, tells the electronic to limit the voltage to the motor. This causes the tool to feel like it has no power. It should be run no load until it cools off, the LED goes out. The tool should have full power again.

If the light is on continuously, even when cool, and it doesn't run, get the tool to an authorizied service center; it may need a new armature. You can find your closest service center here:

Hp pavillion power problem

Perform the following steps, in order, until power is restored or it is determined that there is a hardware failure:
CAUTION: This product contains components that are easily damaged by ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC.
1. Disconnect all cables from the computer, including the power cord.
2. With the power cord disconnected , press the power button on the front of the computer for five seconds.
Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
NOTE: If the power supply fan makes an inconsistent grinding sound or stops and starts erratically, replace the power supply.
3. With the power cord removed, flip the red voltage selector switch to the opposite position. Wait about five seconds, and then switch the red voltage selector switch back to its original location. Ensure that the voltage selector switch is on the correct setting, 115V for North America.
Performing this step ensures that the voltage switch is engaged and set correctly for your country/region.
4. Remove all extension cords, power strips, surge protectors and any converters that remove ground. Plug the power cable directly to the wall outlet and test to see if the computer can turn on.

Disconnected green wire at base of dryer

Hello krebello13,
In almost all cases, a green wire is a ground wire that bonds frame members or removable panels to earth ground. This provides the user with maximum protection against electric shock since the sheet metal is at ground potential regardless of whether it has been detached from the chassis. So.. YES..that is a ground wire with a clip that was probably attached to the frame. Most codes require a ground wire afixed to any panel that can be removed but has voltage on it so that it is never electrically 'floating'.. Hope this helps you..

No power

Simply use Safety. Unplug. Use Continuity Buzzer, Meter ( With Continuity Tone ). Can Use Meter if You Have & Watch, Check By AC Power Cord Fuse. Use a 500 Ohm to 5000 ohm Resistor on two Insulated clip leads with screwdrivers and Find the Hi-Voltage Capacitor ( Large Metal with Leads and a Diode on it. Short the Condenser from one side to another to BLEED any Voltage left Charged in the Condenser. Newer Microwaves have a Bleeder Resistor 10 MegOhms Built in. But Just do this for Backup/Sure Safety. Will Probally Just find a Blown 15-20 amp fuse ( Electrical Surge ). Any one of the 3 Door switches that DONT open-Close Smoothly Will Blow Fuse. ( Intermittent, Burnt, Skipping, Hanging up ). A Shorted Hi-Voltage Capacitor or Diode Will Blow Fuse. Open in Series Protection device may have opened because of Overload or Surge. These are Metal and loop in-Out AC Line and are Mounted ( Heat Sinked to Metal case ).
