Question about Nesco FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator

Open Question

Stopped working Fan works if I bypass it; the heating elements ohm out correctly, but there is a resistor or something tied to 'hot' and thermostat. Can't get a reading on it. What is it? I can change it.

Learn in 2 minutes to use a multimeter to measure resistence ohm and/or continuity,buy a cheap one at a local store if u don,t have and measure the integrity of the element,ceck the voltage on wiring and/plug,if no power comes in, it will not work !?!

After blending cake batter the blender became hot and it's not working what shall I do


You have burnt up the machine. It will no longer function and would be unsafe to try further. Replace it.

Was blending this morning and all the sudden the blade stopped spinning. all of the lights work, and I've tried putting it on "pulse" mode, but nothing can get it spinning again. any ideas?


Pretty much that is what happened to me. I found that the motor has 2 "thermal cut-offs" (SEFUSE 113oC). If the motor heats up even a little, these babies kill your blender. They are thermal fuses. Once they blow, it is over until they are replaced. To fix this, the motor must be removed. The spline gismo on top of the blender unscrews with reversed threads. I suggest unsoldering the lead wires from the power supply board, and replacing when done. The cut-offs are inside the taped on white cloth insulation on the top of the field magnets near the brush assemblies on both sides. I replaced them (both were blown) with 2 of NTE8242 ($1.60 each, 240oC 15A). These are way too hot, but that is what I had on hand. I thought that the electronics were defective at first, and I replaced the entire board assembly with a small/cheap ceiling fan wall switch /speed controller from the hardware store (600W 5A) for $10. The root cause of all of this is that the motor fan is not working. The airflow is blocked by base. I put small extenders on the feet and now there is much more airflow. Only time will tell if this is an effective fix. etc. It really makes me wonder how it got past UL approval.

I can no longer unscrew the plastic part that the glass container fits into on my old Waring 18BL28 blender. It is a simple 10 speed that works perfectly.


Something sticky is in the threads... Try very hot water in the sink as a start, while boiling some water on your stove. With the glass and plastic preheated, install them to the blender base which must be unplugged for the rest of this adventure. Pour the boiling water in, only to about 1/3 of capacity. Install the top cover to protect from the hot water. Hold the glass by the handle and with a rubber glove on the opposite corner or pour spout side. Hold high to avoid the heat from the water. Have a large burly man hold the blender base so that you may twist the glass container counter-clockwise. Stop as soon as it starts to turn the plastic ring off...and go the the sink... Continue after pouring out the hot water. Remember that his procedure is likely to cause broken glass or broken plastic and exposure to scalding hot water. If those risks are acceptable you should still take precautions to protect your flesh. Otherwise order a replacement ring and pitcher for the blender.

Refrigetor and Freezer not getting cold enough


Check under the back of the fridge to see if it is a fan forced condensor it will be beside the compressor,If so check and see that it is running free also check for any buikd-up of dust in the condensor.If all is well and still not working properly it would be a defrosting problem,eg check to see if defrost timer is working by turning it slowly untill it click,s and wait for 25 to 40 minutes,If that is OK then check the heating element in freeze area behind the panel.Hope this helps

My GE dryer was making some squeaking sound and now the heat does not work and clothes are not getting dry


Check the dryer dual-breakers in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If no help, check for ~230 volts AC at the two slanted slots in the dryer power socket. If ok, the problem is likely the heating element(s) in back of the drum are burned out or the internal thermostat is open. To remove the drum, remove the top (push a thin putty knife rearward at each front corner to release latches) and then the front panel. The belt must be released (from inside the lower back) and the rear center screws of the drum removed. When the drum is removed, it gives access to the elements and temp control switches. Be sure to vacuum out all air passages and wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Don't forget the air exit hose to the outside. Replace the belt on reassembly if heat damaged or badly worn. Hope this helps!

Blender turns off


I work for Black & Decker appliances and have more than 10 years experience with small appliances.

Anytime you smell something burning while using an appliance that isn't suppose to heat food, something is wrong. You shouldn't smell any foul odors emanating from a blender. The fact that it shuts off while pureeing something as simple as oatmeal indicates that particular blender is defective.

If you contact the manufacture they will be able to inform you as to your warranty eligibility.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Blender is not doing anything


either the motor is inoperable, or is improperly wired. return it to the retailer. that is assuming you have the cup firmly seated before you try to operate the machine.also if the control panel has more than one speed make certain that only one button, or switch position is engaged

I have had my blender sitting for over a year ( only used it once ) because of the same problem and asked my husband to take a look at it... he opened it ... cut the zip ties took the metal banding off ( note only one side of the motor has the metal banding). What you need to get at is behind the first (I think) resistor. Behind that is a thermal fuse (found at radio shack part # 270-1320 about $1.96). you will need some kind of tester to check the ohms going through it (should read zero) the bad one on mine read 334 ohms and you will need a soldering iron to put it back together. Actually a good project for someone who loves to tinker with this.
