Hi, Sounds like the lightning got your unit too. You could run an extension cord from another plug temporarily just to make sure the plug isn't the problem but I think its time for another unit. Good luck. May want to contact you home owners ins company if there are more appliances blown. kstfas

    Yes. If its built into the plug it can be removed and replaced with a reg plug.

    Although that might not fix the unit. The reset may be opreating properly and the unit may be bad.

If the GFCI won't reset , replace it. Make sure you have the new receptacle wired correctly before you do that.

What to do on bravia hit by lightning

If the TV sustained a direct lightening surge, it probably is fried. Does it turn on, or is there any sign of it working at all, or is the TV totally dead? I suggest the house wiring and receptacle be inspected for any surge damage.

Fuel gauge, speedometer, and temp gauge quit on my 99 chevy s10 after lightning struck highway 10feet in front of me what could be the problem all fuses are good

Wow, frightening, hope you are alright-check fuses and relays, the overload caused by the lightning strike may have blown one of these. Check harnesses and wiring to the gauge pod, worst case you might need to find another on ebay or at a local junkyard.

Circuit switch keep popping out when I plug it in

This could be caused by an electrical short in the AV unit or the receptacle it's plugged into, may be at fault. Due to damaged wire, a loose wire or the circuit for that receptacle is overloaded. I would start with the receptacle first. But, before taking it a part, turn the circuit breaker for that line OFF. If you don't find anything suspicious there, then the problem is in the AC Unit.It may be as simple as a loose or damaged wire.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.

The cord and plug are very hot when running the ac

Sadly, for now, the only thing you can do, is turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. The fault may be in the AC unit or it could be in the receptacle it's plugged into. If it's an older unit, that was made by Fedders for Maytag, I'd strongly suggest buying a new one. As Fedders has been out of business for several years.\\

Wish I had better news for you.

Hello. I just plugged my danby and there's no light, no nothing: it doesn't work? It used to work perfeclty last summer. What can I do?

Marie, the problem may be with the receptacle that it's plugged into. Unplug the AC unit and plug a lamp into the receptacle to see if it works. If it doesn't, the circuit breaker for that outlet may be tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel. Or the receptacle may have a loose wiring connection or internal damage, which wouldn't necessarily trip the circuit breaker, until something like an AC unit is plugged in.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Denon receiver just struck by lightning.

Any time a unit is hit by lightning, it is usually a total loss. While the initial problem may be fixable, other components have been stressed and are likely to fail. Most shops won't work on these units because of the likelyhood of continual failures. Warranties won't be given or the repairs. In your specific case, the switching IC has been damaged and needs to be replaced as well as the surround processing section. This is best handled as an insurance claim for replacement.

When turning on central air, our main electrical breaker is tripping. This is a brand new home barely over 1 year old. Should the AC have a warranty not covered by a builders contract??

Builders give a one year warranty but your air conditioner has five years on all parts. Anything outside the unit is not covered under the ac warranty. Breakers,stopped up drain and dirty coils.

We had a lightning strike in the area with resultant power outage. The set top box is not working and doesn't respond to switching off and or removing plugs from wall for over 5 mins. The LED display...

Lightning is an indiscriminate killer of electronic equipment it can attack multiple areas of electronic circuits. set top boxes are for the most part a computer and data is collected thru an antenna and transmitted back to your set. lightning can enter the box in multiple ways thru the antenna or the AC or both. It would not be worth persueing a repair on this just replace it. if you had other equipment damage then check with your home owners policy for the replacement of all the equipment damaged.
