Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Unit was running and now will not turn on. Outlet checks out ok, house fuse switch has been turned off and on, unit will not come back on. Could the unit have a fuse? How do I find it? Unit is too old to locate a copy of the manual from Sears. Electrician was working on electric and was turning the main switch off and on, unit was on and then quit.

Compressor wont start up fan in freezer stays on

        • Pull the fridge out from the wall and check to make sure it is plugged in.
        • Unplug the fridge and plug in a spare appliance to see if the outlet is working. Check the circuit breaker to the house see If the outlet is not working to see if there are any fuses that are flipped.Inspect the electrical cord for the refrigerator for damage, such as from a mouse or pet chewing on it.
    • Open the fridge to see if the light turns on. The power to the unit is fine if the light turns on, which means something else is the cause of the starting issue.
    • Turn up the thermostat on the inside of the fridge if it is set to a low setting. Turn it all the way up and listen for the condenser motor to start. Have the unit serviced by a professional if it does not May be internal problem with component

Frigidaire Fas297r2a has power but won't turn on

Hello Chris - Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

· Check the power cord connection to the wall outlet is secure.

· Make sure that the house circuit breaker has not tripped.

· Try testing the air conditioner. Make sure the unit is turned off, Press the TEST button, you will notice a click as the BUTTON pops out. Then press the RESET button. Again, you will notice a click as the button engages, now turn unit on. If the LCDI plug does not reset the cord may be damaged.

· The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3-minute compressor time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. And the fan will continue to run during this time.

· If the unit has been turned off and on rapidly or if the thermostat was changed to a lower number and then immediately turned back to a higher number the compressor may not start. You must turn the unit off and wait a minimum of 3 minutes for the unit to equalize before restarting.

If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

Haier dehumidifier will not power on

Turn the ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
Once the time has elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the unit ON.

Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. And the unit will turn ON when you press the ON/OFF Switch.

It's also a good idea to check the outlet it's plugged into. It very well could be an issue with the outlet (no power) or the circuit breaker for that outlet has tripped.

If you continue to have a problem getting it started, contact LG Customer Support 1-800-243-0000.

the new house that you put a dryer have an power? check all fuse in the plug or in your main outlet, or your unit is with light and running but not heating? check the motor if running? if running check the back of your unit when you see the exhaust pipe and clean it,and the filter inside the dryer clean it,if this one is ok.the sensor of your dryer is remove due to vibration coz of transfering or the heater is totally wort out,check the back of unit and look when place the heater?some model is easy to remove the heating at the back,just using screw driver,and easy to check,if the heater is continious coil is is ok,if split or broken repalce the new one,carefully to remove and carefully to return,make sure is the unit is in unplug before anything to do.

Air conitioner started to automatically climb in temperature, we shut the unit off, put new batteries in the remote. the uit will not turn on at all. Prior to this the unit worked perfectly. Can you...

Since it was running (although not cooling) when you turned it off (and put batteries in the remote) it would be strange to have no power at the outlet - but I would check and make sure.

The easy way to check your outlet is - toplug something else in there - like a hair dryer or a lamp - 'assuming' your unit plugs into a regular household outlet, and is indeed a 110 volt appliance.

Step 1 - plug another appliance (hair dryer or lamp) into the outlet

If - after plugging something else into the outlet, i.e. a hairdryer and it works ok - you will - then know that there is nothing wrong with your power supply (110volt outlet). So you can move on to Step 2

Note: if the other appliance does not work - then you need to check the Circuit Breaker to see if it's tripped off. Many times circuit breakers will trip for no particular reason and just needs to be reset (turning breaker off and back on). If you find the breaker is tripped - and you reset it - and the unit - runs and cools ok - I would just keep an eye on it for a few days - watching to see if it does again. A breaker that "keeps" tripping for no apparant reason is an indicator of something electrically wrong within the unit and probably needs a Service Tech to troubleshoot it.

Step 2 - Since the power supply is ok - see if you can start the AC manually - without using the remote. If the unit will not start "manually" - I would look for a "reset button/switch" (*not all units have one) and reset it. Note: if after resetting the unit - it still does not run then proceed to next step (step 3). Or if you can't find a reset button I would look in my manual and see if it can help you find it - if, however you do not have a 'reset button/or can't locate one' then go to next step (step 3).

If - however, after resetting - "the unit comes on and -runs and cools- ok" - I would then 'turn it off,' and let it set for 5 minutes and then try operating it with the remote. If it works with the remote I would then assume you just had an 'electrical glitch' and everything should be ok. If it "doesn't work" with remote I would suspect a defective remote and replace it.

Step 3 - since you have power (at the outlet) and either have 'reset' the unit or can't locate a reset button, or there is no reset on the unit - you are now in need of a Service Tech to electrically trouble-shoot the unit to find the problem. Note: I'm assuming at this point 'Nothing' is running, - not the fan motor - or the compressor, in which case you might look for a "fuse" in the unit - again not all units have one, indeed most do not, but it's something you could check, and easily replace if it's bad.

If, after completing all the checks above and the unit still fails to come on (either manually or with remote) - then you are, as I said above, in need of a Service Tech.

hope this has helped

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.

Kenmore top loading washing machine

check the outlet to make sure that power is getting to the unit. This can easily be done by plugging in a lamp or some small appliance. If you have power at the outlet, it is most likely the lid switch.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. Unless you are familiar with working inside the housing I would call a technician.

Microwave stopped working

Yes, there should be a ceramic (tubular) fuse under the cover on the top side where the power comes into the microwave.
