Kenmore Model 253.70151010 - Blows fuses

I bought this unit new 3 years ago and have never had problems with it. The circuit is protected by a 15 amp fuse and the A/C unit is the only thing plugged into this circuit. I plugged the unit into another 15 amp circuit and it blew that fuse too. It started out blowing the fuse about once per week, then once every couple of days, then once a day. Now it's blowing the fuse after a few minutes. While it's running it puts out cold air the same as when it was new. Any idea what might be causing this?

SOURCE: kenmore window air conditioner blows a fuse.

You got short circuit in the system. Then check the line where the fuse is blown that's where the fault is. Or if it is just the fuse for the two line, you have to check the entire unit.

SOURCE: Will not cool properly.

You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a new kenmore

Take it back or call Sears. A 2 week old unit should not do that. I'll assume the settings are right like set on AC Auto or Max cool and not just fan. Are the coils icing or were they icing behind the filter? If not, I think it may need to be serviced.

Gen set blows fuse

a fuse is there to protect the circuit and the genset
check why the de-icer is pulling so many amps as the problem may be in that unit
a 10 amp outlet has a maximum current capacity of 10 amps as that is the current allowable from the gen set and wire capacity
even if you had an outlet with 15 amp rating , it would still be blowing fuses as the 16 amps is above the allowable current draw
you would need a 20 amp outlet ( difficult to get unless it is in a house power board and are normally reserved for hot water systems , stoves and other high current usage units and are normally then not outlets but hard wired in to a circuit breaker

Unit will crank and start but as soon as you let off key switch to the run position it dies it also blows the main 15 amp fuse

You have a short to ground on that circuit . Find a wiring diagram an see what all the main 15 amp. fuse powers up . Disconnect all components an isolate the circuits till the fuse stops blowing . Could help but you don't say what make , model an year vehicle you have.

Can't locate the fuses.

There are no fuses inside a car stereo unit. The fuse protection is outside on the power circuit. Does it do anything when you power it on?

96 mustang gt ac blows fuse after 5 minutes. Replaced field coil. Jumped low pressure switch. Blows 10 amp fuse in 2 minutes, 15 amp fuse in 5 minutes

it sounds to me like a AC resistor issue i have a beemer that did that same thing to me and it turn out that it was my ac resistor it would burn out my 30 amp ac fuse in 2 to 3 minutes usually when the resistors in a circuit break they tend to burn out the fuses as a warning. easy way to find out is by putting in a new fuse and after a minute go touch the negative lead on you battery if the cable is really hot then there's a short in the circuit or in the case of your ac it would be a broken resistor.
there simple to get and simple to replace.

The fuel injector fuses keeps blowing as soon as i open the ignition switch, it dosent even give me time to turn on the car before it blows again. the car has a new fuel pump installed by jiffy lube about...

There is a short circuit to ground on one of the circuits that the fuse protects. I need more information about your car and exactly which fuse is blowing. (Year, Make, Model, Engine size) All of the circuits powered by that fuse must be traced to find exactly what is causing it to blow. Most of the components can be eliminated as the cause by unplugging them one at a time and checking the fuse connector with a test light. (Otherwise, you could go through a lot of fuses trying to figure it out.)

Husky compressor blows house breaker when turned on, unit is 5 years old. doesn't matter what outlet I plug into

Is your unloader dumping properly? This is the device that allows the head pressure to bleed off after stopping to make the restart easier. Is this device rated at 15 amps or 20? Have you tried a 20 amp circuit?

Do not - repeat - Do not change the breakers to oversome this difficulty. The breakers are in place to protect the wire in your home. Normally, a 15 amp circuit will have #14 wire. #14 wire cannot (and will not, for very long), carry 20 amps without melting or burning. 20 amp breaker protects #12 wire; 30 amps protects #10 wire.

If you continue to have this problem, you may want to have your compressor looked at by a professional electrician.

My LG microwave went completely dead. I is only 3

under the outer cover,its either a 10-15-or 20 amp ceramic safety fuse avail at most hardware stores, the amp rating is on the side of the fuse, if the new one blows then either the H.V. diode/capacitor or the magnetron can be suspects

All lights went out and no buttons will work.

the protection circuit has operated, this is not uncommon on microwaves. the fuse is inside the unit and therefore require dismantling. replace fuse and all should be fine, if it blows again then you have a more serious problems

Blows the 15 amp fuse

if you live in a town that has a remote starter installation shop you can just go there and buy a new pinswitch for around 6 dollars i recomend changing the location of it under the hood
and if your red power wire has only 15 amps of protection you should switch it for a 30 amp fuse thats the minimum that is going to be pulled when the unit cranks the starter wire so the 15 will deffinately melt or blow and check to insure the ground is perfectly connected (in the world of current vs. resistance the weakest point will give in first...
