Nothing happen when i turn on the corn popper, last time i used it which is last week, it was working very well.

When you say nothing, do you mean nothing? No lights, no indication of power etc? If that is so I would make sure that the plug it is in did not trip on Ground Fault. Most kitchens have GF plugs by law and they are very sensitive and trip very easily. If you are sure it has power are there any indicator lights? If not you will need to disassemble the unit because you have probably blown the thermal fuse. It is a small metal can inline with the power. Usually about 170 degrees celcius. Could be hotter. Rating is marked on the side. Check with a DMM for continuity and replace if necessary. If the fuse isn't bad then you either have a bad switch or a bad heating element. Unless the heating element is replaceable you will have to buy a new unit. Check all the components I mentioned and get back to me.

The fan is working but the air conditioner unit is not working

Lets take a moment to see what exactly is inside the condenser (that's an outside unit) You have a compressor, a fan, a contactor, a coil, and a capacitor. How does it work? The condenser is connected to the house via an electrical box called a yank out. It is a quick way to kill power to the unit. Note: this is not the breaker to the unit. That would be in the main panel by the meter. People always assume this is the only safety. It is put there by law to kill the power to the unit for service personel. Pull out the connection to kill the power before checking the unit. The first thing to look for is a swolen capacitor failed%20cap.jpg. If it swells it fails and the unit don't function too well. The next thing to look for is contactor problems. Their are small wires coming from the inside control panel that power up the 24 volt coil that yanks down the contactor. That coil might be bad. If it has no continuity(open) it is in need of replacement. A critter could get between the contacts and fry them as well. Look on the compressor for burnt wires and loose connections (very common). The fan motor should be very easy to turn so if it is stiff then it probably is in need of lubrication. The standard oil in the HVAC world is Zoomoil. It is hi temp resistant, will not lose viscosity and is non flammable. If a weed eater should kill the thermstat wires going outside noting will work because the contactor won't pull down. if the contactor coil is open then it won't pull down and engage the compressor and fan. if a critter crawled under the contacts nothing will happen. of course if the compressor pins are shorted to the copper piping or there is a hole in it or it has an open winding between pins it is shot.

No Power

hi there, I don't think it's the power cord or power supply. If it doesn't turn on, then the motherboard is probably gone. i could be wrong, but if you press the power button and nothing happens, no lights on, no noises, then the motherboard is probably defective.
By the way, unplug the power cord, disconnect the battery and wait for a couple minutes. Re insert the battery and plug the power back and press the power button and see if it goes on.

Vent Fan Will Not Shut Off

The vent fan TCO is a normally open type. I would say you replaced it with a normally closed type.

Probably the only TCO that was bad would have been the magnetron TCO.

If you still have the old vent TCO, I'd reinstall it.

Otherwise, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
