Question about Viking VGBQ410-3RT Grill

Open Question

Interior lights and igniter not working

Power outlet has 120 volts per my electrician but none of the electronics on the grill work. Is there a bus fuse or something else I should look at? It has tripped the GFI a few times over the years, but that was easily remedied by resetting it.

SOURCE: Refrigerator trips GFI outlet

unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc

SOURCE: My 48" Viking Range top trips the GFI

One leg of the power is "dead shorted" to ground. Use a Multimeter and start looking/testing to determine which component is bad.

SOURCE: No power to viking microwave unit.tripped fuse in

Check to see if you have a "reset" button on your microwave, or even just by pressing the "clear" button first. Check to see if you have a "master" or "red" reset or "test" button nearest to your microwave on a light switch and reset that if applicable. You could also check to see if your unit has a fuse and replace that. It's possible when you tripped the fuse in the house you might have blown the fuse in the microwave.

My george foreman grill will not power on

Check for power at the outlet where you plugged it in. Plug in a small lamp, if it doesn't light could be tripped breaker or blown fuse. I am assuming there is no switch for the outlet. With the lamp still plugged in and on plug in the grill and try to turn on. If the lamp goes off or dims noticeably, you have an electrical problem, contact your electrician. If the light does not dim and it does not get hot take to repair shop.

Microwave blows fuse to kitchen outlet when it is plugged in. microwave still works.

What else in on the circuit? Your oven should be on its own. If you live where I live, this should be a 20 amp 120 Volt AC branch wired directly from your power panel.

If this is not the case, have a licensed electrician install a proper circuit for you.

65" projection toshiba power fuse blows

You have a dangerous situation here---All modern units (Lamps, TV's, everything) Have a polarized power cord---one side of plug the pin is smaller than other side.

The large side goes to the neutral side of the electrical outlet.

One of two things has happened---either a issue with the electrical outlet which is rather rare except in older houses that have the old style electrical outlets (both pins the same size) Or someone has managed to get a cord in backwards--filed down the large lug on the power cord and put it in backwards.

What happens and can be tested is with it backwards you have "potential" 120 volts being fed back into the cable wire itself--

DO NOT KEEP CHANGING THE FUSE--a simple test with a voltmeter set to AC (wall) voltage from a earth ground (water pipe of metal will show 120 volts on the coax.

The touchy part is any set in the house misconnected can feed this back via the coax!

The cable company may be able to help or NOT> an electrician will be able.

The way I would locate this is with the volt meter hooked to the coax I would disconnect the cable feed from each set or unit in the house one at a time until no voltage reading---then you would know which is causing this issue.

Be advised it can spark which can destroy parts in any of the sets or equipment.

Kind of like if you got shocked when you touched the metal on your car.....something bad is happening.

Please if need ANY help comment here and I will assist.

Coleman Powermate 6250/500 PM0545005 has power to just one side of the 120/240 outlet. the 120 volt outlets have none. Ran just fine onr week ago

The capacitor has no bearing as you have output on one leg. Take or have an electrician check the power from L1 to N and L2 to N right as it comes off the generator stator, before any breakers and receptacles. If you have no power still on one leg, the stator is bad. The rotor is fine as you indicate you have power on one leg, you may have lost one set of windings in sthe stator. Good Luck

Hi there- I have three year old KGRC707 gas range. I am shipping it to east Africa (overseas) that has 220V electric standard. wil it work as it did in the US with or without a transformer? also can you...

I see a few problems with the coversion to 220VAC I will send a set of manuals and a phone number. Here is what the instalation manual says about wiring. If codes permit and a separate ground wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician
determine that the ground path is adequate.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not
sure whether the range is properly grounded.
Do not ground to a gas pipe
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15-ampere, fused
electrical circuit is required. A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended
that a separate circuit serving only this range be
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide
voltage limits, but proper ground and polarity are
necessary. In addition to checking that the outlet
provides 120-volt power and is correctly grounded,
the outlet must be checked by a qualified
electrician to see if it is wired with correct polarity.
The wiring diagram is included in the literature
package. The wiring diagram can also be found on
the back of the range.
NOTE: The metal chassis of the range must be
grounded in order for the control panel to work. If
the metal chassis of the range is not grounded, no
keypads will operate. Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the
metal chassis of range is grounded.
I was thinking it would help you to know and not have your question unanswered. Good news or bad. Personally I see no problem stepping down the voltage and making a typical receptical. My views do not change requirements so best I follow those that made the eletrical requirements. Another problem is the cycles or hz. HZ is defined like this 1 Hertz = one time per second ad 60 is 60 per second. In europe and most countries outside the USA operate on 220 V @50 hz. A typical 120 V clock would run slower and a record player also. I think it would be better if you use something designed for the local area you are moving to.

You will need to remove the top grill vent first, then you can remove the screws coming in from the top of the grille vent then that will expose a screw holding down the control panel at the top. Remove the screw and remove the control panel. The fuse is located in a little 1" fuse holder just behind the front panel near the top.

Whirlpool stacker washing machine works dryer doesn't

The problem is probably with the outlet. The washing machine motor is 120 v and the dryer is 220 v. If one pole of the two pole breaker is bad you could end up with the symptoms you have. I have seen this happen before. go to the circuit breaker and push it all the way to off (it may feel like you are crunching something inside...don't worry) then turn it back on and try the dryer. If this doesn't work, unplug the unit and test the outlet with a voltage tester. you should read 220-240 volts across the two slots and 120 volts from each slot to ground. If not, it is time to call an electrician.

ShockSentry GFCI duplex receptacle child safety

Those GFCI's will stop functioning (as they are supposed too) if the electronics is bad. Nearby lightning strikes and power surges can knock out the electronics. Some GFCI's come from the factory bad out of the box. Also if wired incorrectly (make sure the incoming 120 volt wires are connected to the LINE side of the receptacle) The only other thing to check is if there is power to the GFCI. Test for 120 volts at the receptacle box. (testing from hot to neutral will rule out a bad neutral connection). Should read 120 volts. Otherwise, you'll have to replace the outlet :-(
