It's now April 29th and I'm probably WAYYY late on this one. First of all, I'm not certain that I have the qualifying answer, BUT here is what I believe could be wrong with your icemaker. I believe there is a fuse in the wire loom coming ouf of the icemaker that could be bad, and if it IS blown, possibility is greatest of a defective motor. Since these motors seem to rarely go bad, I'd be applying a "necessity is the mother of invention" technique and put your gray matter into looking for a commutator that turns this assembly a little deeper in the bowels of this assembly. Those little finger contacts CAN be corroded, but more often lose their tension, which will foul up it's operation. Hope this helps some, and my deep apology that I didn't spot this sooner to try and help you out. Sincerely, Fred

I plug my cord into the cigarette lighter. It will flash for a second then in is off. It will not power on the radar. I opened the plug but I did not see a fuse. Any help?

Have you tried unit in another cars plug-in? There should be a fuse between the silver tip of the plug and the wires connected to it. I would determine if the plug in is bad then the plug itself. If plug in is dirty plug is not making good connection to power unit. Plug in is also protected by a fuse in your cars fuse box.

Plugged into bad electric, Washer/dryer combo does not power on now

if your appliances all blew they may have been fuse protected, such as tv's and microwave have inside them. Power converter should be fuse protected as well. If the plug was wired incorrectly was it a fifty amp service or thirty? Does your power run threw a transfer switch? look there as well. typically voltage spikes threw ground circuits take out your electronics. Using ground fault interruption circuits and voltage protectors in between your plug and power supply will prevent most/some damage. many variables to pinpoint without input.

2005 suburban , the trailer harness wiring behind the plug in has power for the break and right turn but has no power for riding lights or left turn ?

Find the LEFT INSTRUMENT PANEL FUSE BLOCK. At the TURN SIGNAL/FLASHER MODULE, a 10A fuse (A9?) protects the right trailer stop/turn circuit (DK GRN) which you say is OK. Back at the S/FM, a 10A fuse (A8?) protects the LEFT trailer stop/turn circuit (YEL). At the UNDER HOOD FUSE BLOCK, a 15A TRL PARK fuse (B6?) protects the running/parking lights (BRN).

Why is the red light that says protect on? my amp turns on but it dosent work, i have a sup hooked up & it dosent work. the red light that says protect is on.

first thing check all ground and power wires and make sure ur rca wire make sure it isnt cut in anyway. after that unplug ur sub and unplug the negative wire from ur amp, while its out check the fuses on the amp if all is well put all fuses back if not get new. then plug the negative wire back in if protect goes off check for heat and if no heat inspect the wires from speaker out put all the way to the sub, look for any wire touching another this is were most problems are even the smallest wire can trip a protect. if u still cant find the problem. an amplifier specialist is in order.if its trashed go on ebay and buy a powerbass there goin cheap right now. hope i could help

the fuse for the i/m is actually in the wiring harness that plugs into the icemaker. if the model is correct the icemaker goes across the back of the freezer. when you installed the icemaker on one of the wires (i think red wire) there is a black "pill" looking thing. this is the fuse.

Kitchenaid icemaker

Most icemakers have a thermal fuse on the black wire feeding them. If this fuse overheats then it will blow to protect your fridge. Check for continuity through the fuse.

(Note that the fuse itself can not be changed. The whole wiring harness has to be changed.)

This may be a dumb question, but have you tried replacing the fuse in the power wire? That fuse blowing might have been the pop you heard. It is possible that you did short something out, though I have never had that happen by messing with the wires for the PA.

If replacing the fuse does not help, and you know that there is still good power and ground coming out of the power plug, you may want to try replacing the protection diode.

That is where I would begin, the fuse, power and ground coming into the radio, and then the protection diode. If nothing helps, please let me know.

Whirlpool Icemaker not working

Willn2try. On the indoor ice maker the immitter board and receiver board will determine when to send power to the module. This is probably why you are not reading any voltage on your test points. When the thermostat closes, the emitter board sends out a infared pulse. If the path of the pulse is not blocked (like no ice in the bin) it will then send power to the module and start a cycle. Since you stated the optics are good, try testing for your voltage by holding down the left side receiver board, light switch and do not block the beam. You can bypass the thermostat by jump starting the cycle. Place a jumper in T&H, place the IM on a shelf out of the way of the boards. Close the door and unplug the refer for 30 seconds. Plug the refer back in and wait 45 seconds. When you open the door the cycle should be started. Cativer
