My masterbuilt electric fryer will not turn on

You did not mention the year of it, but if the outlet in the wall is "hot", then you have a problem with the plug, the cord, the switch, or the element inside.
An appliance guy/girl could help you, or, if you decide to fix it yourself, you could take it apart and test with an electric meter to deduce the problem.
God bless your efforts.

Can i run a 700w microwave,a 721w/24hrs and a 1600w coffee machine if i plug them in 20 mins apart?

The answer to your question fully depends upon the capacity of the outlet into which the appliances are plugged.
Assuming you are in the U.S., where supply voltage is (generally) 120V, a 700W microwave draws approximately 6A. A 1600W coffee maker draws over 13A. (Amperage estimates will be approximately 1/2 in countries where the mains supply is 220V).
Kitchen electrical outlets are usually rated for 15A, meaning that NO, you DEFINITELY SHOULD NOT use both of these appliances at the same time. (Check the rating of the circuit and the plug. In countries where 220V is the standard, using the two appliances in the same outlet simultaneously is NOT recommended, however may be possible if the outlet and circuit rating is at least 15A).
If, on the other hand, you want to simply plug them both into the same outlet and use them at different times, that's fine (as long as you aren't tempted to run both appliances at the same time).

I have an older Black and Decker Spacemaker (ODC440) coffee maker. It has been working fine, then it just quit. No digital power to the appliance. It is not the outlet. All mechanical part

I cannot begin to guess without looking at the machine, but, having torn these things apart before, I can tell you the two things that "break " most often.
1) The most common break is the electrical cord immediately inside the machine where you cannot see it until you have taken the machine apart.
A new cord would fix that.
2) Second most common is the electrical switch itself, where you turn it on.
God bless your efforts.

I had a house with old funky wiring. I'm pretty sure it caused me to blow a fuse in my toaster oven. Can you tell me where the fuse is located?

The manual mentions nothing about any user serviceable fuse or reset. "Funky" wiring in your home shouldn't cause an appliance to fail. Wiring that is in poor condition usually results in blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers in the service panel, heat in places it shouldn't happen and of course, fires.

It is very possible that the outlet is worn to the point that it doesn't make very good contact with the toaster's plug and has caused the toaster to fail to heat up. Try removing the toaster to a different outlet and try again. Check the original outlet with another appliance or lamp, etc. to see if it works or not. Also, check to be sure any ground fault outlet hasn't tripped.

If the toaster fails to work as expected in another outlet, there's little you can do to repair without jeopardizing your safety - especially if you're not familiar with appliance repair. These appliances aren't really meant for disassembly - manufacturers don't want to be liable for "repairs" that end with injuries, burns and death so the make them pretty hard to take apart. Even if you are successful, they make even harder to reassemble without it looking obvious that it has been disassembled.

Take it apart if you want - learn about how it works and buy a new one. These devices don't rely on rocket science and the controls are pretty simple - but it is an electrical device and electricity isn't a hobby. Be safe. Be smart.

BTW - I don't want your money - I just don't want you to get hurt.

Goiod luck!

It stopped working while I was using it . I tried to plugged in different electric outlets but it still dead. What should I do or look into in order to get it back to normal?? thanks

I would start by taking the wand apart. Be sure vac is unplugged from the wall outlet! You should be left with two pipe pieces, and the beater bar. I would also pull the hose from the canister unit itself. Once all the pieces are pulled apart, check the two or three prong wire connectors on each piece, both the female and male ends. If you have any dielectric grease, use a dab on each electrical connection. Once you reassemble, and still not powering up, wiggle the wand back and forth at the connection near the canister, and after the hose near where the switch is. If the vac cuts on after wiggling it, then you have a loose connection, and will need to tighten the female ends on the electrical connections, by squeezing them together slightly with a pair of pliers. Please rate if this works or does not work. Thanks!

One dryer prong burned and melted were the cord meets the dryer,do i need to replace the wire housing box were the wire meets the dryer. i am replacing the outlet and the wire

i would take the dryer apart and see how it looks inside, the real question is what caused the melt down, if it looks good then I would just replace the outlet and the cord, as long as the stud is still good. I would not run the dryer unattended as it sounds like you might have a problem, since you will have the dryer apart might as well clean all the lint out with a brush and vacuum. here is a website that will help with the dissemblance, Tim:

It is possible that the interconnection link(s) between the two sockets in the duplex outlet have blown apart. Turn off power at the electrical panel for this circuit, remove the outlet from it's box, and check the interlink on both sides. If obviously burned, replace the socket. A better option is to run another duplex cable from the breaker box to the outlet from a new breaker, cut the interconnections on the new socket, and wire the new cable to the isolated part of the socket. This supplies full power to each half and allows both units to run at the same time.

Coleman 5KW gen motor shuts down when A/C switch turned on

Sounds like a problem with the wiring of the outlets after the circuit breaksr. Take apart the outlet box and have a look for burned or broken wires, melted outlets, and/or small critters stuck in the wiring.
