I thought it would be simple matter of exposing the wiring of the left and right severed cords, then solder and re-sheath each with insulating tape. The headphones did not operate. I did observe that the left cord wiring when exposed had a extremely fine red insulated wire running through the cord. I exposed the fine inner wire of this red wire and rejoined the break. Still no sound from the headphones. Can anyone help please. I am pretty handy and normally can solve and repair. This has me beat. Thanks, Eric
Re: Severed cord on my wonderful headhones AKG K24P.
It sounds like you actually have 2 wires closely wrapped together. They are very fine and you have to make sure that you have separated all of the wires from each other. Generally you will have a red wire and a copper colored wire for the right side and blue (or green) and copper colored for the left side. you need to make sure that none of these little wires are still mixed with each other, otherwise you have a dead short and the speaker will not work. The insulation is very thin so there is no need to strip it, the insulation will burn off when the solder is applied

It would be the easiest way, attaching a male plug to the end of the severed cord so it can be used with an extension from the power outlet. Safe too if you duplicate the wires in the old portion, as the cleaner may or may not be earthed.
i have this problem too, except it's the left side that doesn't work. i think that's because the copper wire inside broke or is severed partly. there is no way to fix it... just go buy a new one and this time try to kot coil the cords around hour mp3or ipod.
Assuming you are not able to reconnect the cord at the junction with the pump, you can use silicone filled wire splices to repair the cord. These are used for submerged well pumps and consist of a heat shrink splice tube that has a silicone liner. You slip the sleeve over the wire, solder the ends of the wires together and center the joint in the sleeve. Then you use a heat gun to shrink the sleeve. It melts and compresses the silicone into a waterproof seal. A separate sleeve is used for each of the wires in the cord. If not available at a hardware store or Home Depot or Lowes you should be able to get them from an electrical or plumbing supply house.
The 4 prong dryer cord white wire goes to the center terminal connection.
The green wire goes to a external ground(any screw) outside the terminal cover.
Red and black wires go right and left of the white center wire.
Does not matter which is right or left.
After reading some posts on this site, we checked the power cord since someone else experienced the same problem. Whalah! Problem fixed - our cord was severed and one line inside the cord was also severed. Called the store where we purchased it and they are coming out this morning to switch this machine out.
It is tough to find the right power adaptor with the "right" length cord. Your best bet would be to use an electrical extention cord for the added length you need. "if you can't get the adaptor to the outlet....... take the outlet to the adaptor' !!!!
I may be able to assist...If you haven't done so already..UNPLUG The cord. Now, depending on where the wire was severed, will impact the degree of difficulty in reinstalling it.
I suggest that you position the fridge so that you can access the place where the cord actually goes into the fridge.
I assume that the cord passes thru a cable feedthru of some kind in the back so you may want to follow that into the fridge.
If the cord was severed outside the fridge you could simply join the 3 wires together as an inline connection ( making sure to keep the supply line, neutral and ground wires bonded to their corresponding ones ... meaning ground wire to ground wire, neutral to neutral and supply line to supply line... line may sometimes be referred to as the 'hot' feed.
If the cord was svered off internal to the fridge, try these steps..
You will probably need to remove an access panel on the back to see where the power cable is routed within the fridge. Once located, you will need to find where that cord was severed when it was pulled out. There should be 3 wires coming into the fridge from the power cord. I assume it came with a standard three prong plug that is compatible with a wall socket. You will have to identify which wire is which on the cord. It helps if you have a continuity meter or ohm meter for this. First, identify which of the 3 wires is bonded to the round terminal of the plug ( that would be your ground wire) That wire should be secured to the fridge frame with a bare screw of some sort. You may be able to trace the cord inside the fridge back to that point or you may be able to reattach the severed wire together using wire nuts to keep the wires joined together and electrically insulated from surrounding surfaces. Remember that it is critical to maintain the same point to point wire configuration as it came with. As a general rule of thumb, a bare copper wire or green insulated wire is typically the ground wire. Depending on the cord type, black insulated wire is normally the supply or HOT feed, and white is typically the neutral line. You may have different color insulation on your wires ( especially if it is a molded cable assembly ) so make sure you verify which wire comes from which terminal on the plug. ( round terminal on plug is ground, the longer of the two ( if it is a polarized plug would be your neutral and the shorter terminal would be the supply line. If unsure, get professional assistance. Hope this helps...
