Quiet master SL36L30A-C outer fan broke loose and then unit triped a braker. With new blade should unit be ok

Not sure of the damage that the spinning blade did, but the breaker did its job. I would ohm it out for shorts before powering it on though. How long was it tipped over. was it righted immediately. This is very important, because you don't want liquid refrigerant in your compressor, or it's done when started. If you didn't right it immediately, then use a hair dryer or heat gun to boil off any liquid refrigerant that may have entered the compressor before you power it back on.

Unit triping braker when compressor turns on

the breaker is underrated the power that it takes to start the compressor is really big but only for a few seconds. That is called the inrush and the breaker should be rated for HVAC wich allows for this.

I have a Kenmore model 20802990 washer, it will run for a short while and then stop working, it is almost as if the circuit breaker trips because when I turn the circuit breaker of then back on and switch...

well you right in saying "its triping the braker off" thats what it is doing,,
there is a problem with the washer motor,,its pulling far to many amps so its a fulty motor,,,and it will just keep triping the trip out,,,
its a good job you have trips,,the motor could have gone up in smoke

The dry will not get hot the knob had sparks that came from it

there are many different things that could lead to no heat condition,first check the input power terminal strip where the power cord enters and make sure the leads arnt burnt off,then the hi-limit switch found on the heating element case can be bad,an open heating element, a bias thermostat in some machines,you will need to open up the machine to check most of these parts except the power input with a multi-meter

Keeps blowing the brakers model #MWG9115SL


There is an obvious short circuit in the unit. I am surprised you would persist in giving yourself the stress over such a unit as well as risking a fire outbreak in the unit.
Repairing microwaves is just not economically viable, you can pick up a refurbished one or a good working second hand one for about $50-100 A repair is about $200-300 with labor.
Dump it, but first cut off the power cord so some other poor soul doesnt think they found a baragain on the tip.

No power on kenmore range

Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

If everything above is ok, move on to the power cord junction point. make sure the power cord has not separated from the junction point on the backside of the unit.

Check the venting to see if pluged up with lint and anything else. Also check the. vent tubing going from dryer to out side.If the vent goes up this will create a problem of not heating proply. Check thermostate if wire might fell off. Check the fuse braker to check if one side has triped off due to overload on power. Most likely the fuse box switch. Hope this might help.
