Good job tracing the location of the fuses. Now, logically, the transformer is the next thing to check. When power is turned off at the house breaker, remove one of the wires on the output side of the transformer and see what happens when you turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, the transformer is shot and needs to be replaced. If not, go to the next device on the circuit, etc...

well, seems to me that you are using too much juice for the circuit, which implies a SERIOUS issue with the machine. perhaps the motor is locked, or something in control panel is shorted out?

No, the lid switch won't have anything to do with it. First, open the cabinet and look at the wires on the capacitor located on the back of the cabinet under the water inlet valve or on the motor. Check for any shorts. Second, look at the start switch located on the motor, it is where the wiring plug is plugged into the motor for any loose or broken wires. Third, open the top control panel and look at all the switches for ant loose or shorted wires.

Fuse blows as soon as you incert it into yhe ignition circuit on my C300H countax


You have a short somewhere and you need to trace the wiring. For your diagnosis, use "circuit breaker" fuse which will auto-trip/reset if there is a short or high amp draw. I even replaced some of my fuse with circuit breaker.

Fuse keeps blowing


Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and start tracking the wire from the power side of the switch, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

You'll have to get someone to trace the circuits to find the short. You can unplug the master switch in the driver's door and use a circuit breaker in place of the fuse or a fresh fuse.
Toyota door switches have a history of problems. If you disconnect the master switch and the new fuse or circuit breaker does not blow, I would try another switch. You may also have a problem with the wiring harness between the door and the post.
If the new fuse or breaker blows, you will need to disconnect the other motors and switches or look for a short in those circuits.

We have a MH7135XEQ1 microwave and the fuse blew on it. We replaced it and it still keeps blowing. What is going on?


You may have a problem with the door switches. There are usually three switches and if the Monitor switch fails or the door isn't closing properly it will blow the main incoming power fuse.

Speed Queed AEM677W2 dryer does not blow hot air


Below is a checklist provided by; www.repairclinic.com. They also provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams for DIY assistance.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Firstly, ascertain that you have made a positive heat selection, then read on.
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
