Circuit board fuse blows when the compressor tries to start


If its a standard split cooling system you should have a control wire that connects the indoor unit to the outdoor unit. That control wire has 2(or more) small wires and normally red is the hot(24volt) and white is the common. Power from red may be shorting to ground or touching the metal on something. It could be the wire touching another wire causing a short. Or if the outdoor unit has safety switches such as a low or high pressure switch, the wires to them may have rubbed against the copper tubing inside the unit causing a short to ground. It could be the electrical contactor or any circuit circuit board it may connect to. Most the time I find that the control wire (small wire) will be pulled on or chewed at the outdoor unit. Something can pull on it and cause it to ground where it connects to the unit behind the control panel. Be sure to be safe!!! A bit of experience may be needed. A good tech can usually find a short in 10 mins.

My Roper washing machine will not complete a cycle. It stops before it gets to rinse. If I turn it off and wait a few hours, it will run and finish if I waited long enough. Could the motor be dying?

HOW TO live TEST a G.E - MOTOR

After removing the cabinet follow the wires from the motor halfway up the tub. Then cut and splice the ORANGE, the BLUE, the VIOLET /WHITE, & the RED wires.
Now using a long long extension cord with the end connector cut off and exposing the 2 end wires stripped back about an inch.

To check the spin cycle: Connect and splice the RED & the Blue wires to one end of the extension cord wire. And the ORANGE & WHITE /VIOLET to the other end of extension cord, be sure to use but connectors or electrical tape. Plug in the cord an the wash cycle should start? If not the motor is bad.

To check the wash cycle: Connect the BLUE and the WHITE/VIOLET wires to one end of cord. And the ORANGE & RED connected to the other end of cord, then plug in and the wash cycle should start? If not the motor is bad.

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Thermostat fuse keeps blowing


The fuse protects the transformer from being damaged due to too much amperage, this is typically due to the circuit having a short or a device in that circuit being shorted.
See below the transformer's relationship to the thermostat.
The RED wire is the "hot leg" of the 24 volt power provided by the transformer to the thermostats R or RED terminal as pictured below.
The 24 volt hot leg enters the thermostat on R or RED.
The various other terminals White = heat, Yellow = cool ,
Green = fan and Common is the side of the 24 volt power source that every 24 volt circuit terminates or return to complete the circuit.
Thus the common name designated, note hoe everything returns to Common.
Well if we jumped Red directly to Common that is a short and will blow the fuse as you observe.
See the 2 diagrams in red describing a notrmal circuit then a short circuit.

Air conditioning thermostat not functioning


ab302475-b998-41c7-9c7c-4e106b68e0be.pngGo to your thermostat and look at the FAN switch, it will be in the AUTO position typically.
Set the FAN switch to the ON setting,
by doing this if the fan motor operates you know that the High voltage & the low voltage (24 volt control power) are present.
This saves you from having to go to the breaker panel and checking / resetting the breaker as well as checking the Transformer and automotive type 3 amp control circuit fuse (generally on the circuit board).

If you do not get any fan operation by switching the fan switch to the ON setting, you then will have to determine if the breaker, transformer and aforementioned 3 amp fuse are all good.

You will need a volt meter to test further.
At the thermostat remove the cover thus exposing the thermostats sub base and assorted circuits/wiring.

RED or R
Red is the 24 volt "hot leg" of 24 volt power which originates at the transformer. Red enters the thermostat on the Red or R terminal, some thermostats will have an RC and an RH terminal, these are jumpered together on single transformer systems as they are for Red Cool and Red Heat, without a jumper wire on RC and RH, the Red "hot leg" of the 24 volt control voltage will only energize the terminal its wired to, some stats are battery powered and do not use the transformers 24 volt power (parasitically) to power the thermostat.
If the thermostat is powered by the transformers 24 volt power, there will be a "COMMON" wire on the common terminal of the thermostat, this is the other side of the 24 volt power from the transformer, the side opposite from RED the 24 volt "hot leg"
Common is called common as its the side of power that EVERY
24 volt circuit terminates, or completes its circuit, thus the COMMON designation.
During a Heat call the 24 volt hot leg is sent out via the white/heat terminal to the gas valve etc.
So between terminals Common & White , it should read 24 volts during a call for heat.
Same for Fan which is the Green or G terminal,
Same for Cool which is the Yellow or Y terminal.
If you have no power to these terminals when calling for heat or cool or fan then yes the thermostat is defective and requires replacement.
DO NOT let the RED wire touch ground or the COMMON terminal, this is a direct short and blows the fuse or transformer
if not equipped with fuse protection.

Normally you should read 24 volts between RED and COMMON

I cannot get power to bring the induction fan on. I have a solid red indicator light.


Solid red is normal, no call for heat. Try jumping (in the FAU) between the R and W thermostat terminals on the circuit board. Be sure when you do that the interlock safety switch is on delivering power to the heater, the red light is on. Also be careful not to touch the R side to any ground, it may blow a fuse within the circuit board.
If that works, try jumping from the thermostat itself (remove the thermostat and jump the red and white wires) if that works, your thermostat has failed... replace.
If jumping the terminals in the FAU fails to run the inducer fan I suggest you call a technician, as something in the circuitry has failed and will probably need to be replaced.
If jumping from the thermostat wires fails, then the wire is broken somewhere between the thermostat and the FAU (either by literal break, or a signal interruption... like a security system or zoning system).
Good luck.

How do u wire athermostat to the furnance and ac unit on model e3eb-015h nordyne


You need to get low voltage wire known as 5 wire. run wires thru wall to stat and furnace Red wire goes to R terminal white to W terminal Green to G terminal Yellow to Y terminal on both the stat and furnace circuit board. Now you need a wire called 2 wire low voltage wire run that from furnace circuit board to outside A/C. At furnace hook red wire to Y terminal and white to C terminal doesnt matter which ones you hook up at outside unit. Do it just like i told you this will work properly.
If this helps please rate me.

My Janitrol GU125-4 furnace will not shut off; cannot be turned off at thermostat, and heats the house to 80 degrees. I have to cut it off at the breaker. What is the fix?


Hi, it sounds like you may have a short in the thermostat or in the wires coming from the thermostat. The red and white wires are for heat. If you open the filter door, there should be terminal screws labeled R, W, Y, G and the 4 or 5 strand t-stat wire going to it. Just disconnect the W wire and replace the door, if the heater stays off you have a short somewhere in the thermostat circuit. Unless you just replaced the T-Stat recently, a rodent may have chewed through the wire or a nail pierced the wire, or ???,  you get the idea. You may need to pull a new T-Stat wire.  Good luck and comment back if you have any other questions.

Re: 1/2 hp liftmaster Just installed new circuit board Neither sensor light works and the power sources at the board are not hot If I put the meter on the # 1 terminal and either #1 or #2 I get 34...


Are you sure you connected the wiring to the new board correctly? Terminal #1 should have a white wire with red tracer. Terminal #2 should have 3 solid white wires and terminal #3 should have 2 white wires with black tracer.

Does the opener do anything at all?
