On your unit there is a thermal fuse that disrupts power due to a power spike, over amping heater or just age, the thermal fuse is located in the console clipped to the top of the control board, it's light in color and has 2 black wires going to it. the replacement part number is 8193762 the part runs about $20 or so in cost. good luck hope this helps

Electrical storms can burn out electronic components. Consider investing in whole house surge protection.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and the model being a KitchenAid, there is indeed an internal "fuse" or as Whirlpool refers to it, "thermal fuse" or "bimetal". I'd suggest you likely have a faulty thermal fuse in the control board, but it is not resettable unfortunately. (these are made by Whirlpool)

It's pretty easy to replace or to check, I've attached a link below to change the fuse, but you can also use the link to access the thermal fuse to check it.

With the aid of an ohm meter, (**and the electricity first**) remove one wire and measure across the two contacts and it should show continuity, otherwise it's open and therefore no good.

The part is available at most brick & mortar part places or on-line at vendors such as "" or" to name a couple. Part number 8193762...looks like this image and retails for about $15-$20USD based on the model you provided.

This is the youtube link to help with the repair "how to".

Let me know how you make out or if you require any further assistance and I'll try to help in any manner I can. Good luck.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

No power to unit replaced thermostat , door switches, diode on capacitor but not the two fuses continuity goes to 0

There are 2 thermostats or "thermal fuses" in it that would cause no power. One is on the magnetron, the other is above the microwave cavity near the middle. Have you checked/replaced both? You should have 120 volts between the white wire on the main relay on the circuit board & the black wire in the smaller connector on the board. If you do, bad board, if not, something before the board (fuses, thermostats, noise filter board, etc). Door switches, diode, capacitor would not cause no power to unit.

I have a Merlin 230T garage door opener which abruptly stopped working altogether. Could it be the fuse?--or any other suggestions.

There is a fuse in a Model M-230T and I have seen a service man change it.Now that the fuse has blown again, I want to change it myself BUT can't now find it!

Can anyone please offer a guide to changing the fuse?

Simply fails to switch on. Mains fuse OK "Special" fuse of PSU board OK.

Check the lamp door. There is an interlock there that will prevent power-up if the door is open at all It should be a small post on the door that enters the projector to compress a micro switch. If the post is broken or the door is not completely shut, the switch won't activate and there will be no power.

If that is not the case, please update this and we'll lok further.

Kenmore dishwasher... filled up with water and its lights went off.. no buttons work acts like no power. check the house fuse box - ok ... check the 2 door switch - ok .. checked the thermal fuse - ok ...

Did you check power to the unit? Double check the common and grounds. When servicing I will disconect(unplug from wall) power to the unit. Is it pluged in? Use another outlet(the outlet under the sink may be wired thru a switch for a disposer)even if you need an extension cord. Hope this helps.

Ok , I replaced the fuse checked all connections and checked plug for power ! Still my lg lmv1630st will not show any power at all . What gives?

by replacing the fuse you meant the house circuit fuse or the microwaves internal fuse? and by conncetions your talking the internal wiring inside the case of the unit or wiring from the plug? if not its your 15 or 20 amp ceramic fuse inside the unit,if thats blown replace,but chk h.v.diode,v.v. cap,triac,control board, mis-adjusted interlock safety door switch,and lastly the mag could be defective

Rudd Furnace under-achiever 90 no lights nothing power going to unit and 3 amp fuse check out OK! I had the board, and blower replaced today ran for about two hours and now nothing again!Same problem!...

You say you have power but what is the voltage? You said that that you are using a 3 amp fuse so you are referring to a gas unit. Ok, have you checked the safty switch that is located on the blower cabinet, the one that the door sits against to make sure that you have power leaving the switch? Also, on some units, there is a limit switch that come directly off of the above mentioned blower cut off switch that when tripped, will cut main power to the board. Its located on the inducer or on the flu pipe, but mostly on the inducer houseing. Make sure that all your manual reset limits are reset. But check the switch first and then work your way to the limits. This is the only thing left and was probably the probablem before you replaced the board. If you have any more questions, please respond to the thread.

My maytag dishwasher appears dead just after 1 year

You probably have a bad main control or console control unit in there. Turn power off to the machine, be sure that BOTH of your door switches are ok. Unplug your membrane to control panel ribbon cable, then put everything back in place. Leave the door open, then turn power back on to machine. (also, be sure the thermal fuse hasnt tripped while your in the console). After re-appling power, close the door, and wait a few, if the console unit is bad, the machine will go into drain mode (you will here the unit start in drain). If no drain mode, then your control is shorted. You dont have to see any burn marks, etc for one to be bad, in fact, 98% of the boards we replace, dont show any signs of problems. Let me know what you find out.

What part do we replace first?

Door safety switch. You are sure you have power to furnace? jump out the G and R terminals on the furnace control board or turn your thermostat to Fan On to check. Make sure the door safety switch is in the closed position. Fan should come on. No fan, no power to unit. Check Emergency switch, circuit breaker and there may be a fuseable link in the wiring somewhere either above the unit or a condensate safety switch. Get power to the unit. Also check to see if there is a small fuse in the wiring inside the furnace or on the circuit board.

Whirlpool dishwasher stopped working...

It sounds like the thermal fuse in the control console has blown.
Turn power off to unit.
Remove the outer door panel and then the console.
Remove the black plastic cover from over the circuit board if it has one.
You should see the thermal fuse clipped to the circuit board housing.
If you have an ohm meter, check for continuity across it, it should read closed.
If you don't have a meter, unplug the wires from it and and hook them together.
Turn power back on to unit, hold door switches down and cancel cycle. The washer should drain the water.
If this doesn't work, check your door switches to make sure they are closing properly.
