Question about KitchenAid Superba KFRS361TSS Stainless Steel Propane Grill

1 Answer

Preventing damage We have occasional power surges in our neighborhood. I am afraid that sooner or later these surges may fry the circuit boards in our new Kitchenaid refrigerator. (That is what happened to our 5 year old Kitchenaid). Would the use of a high grade surge protector be advisable like the ones I use for my computers and televisions?

Yes, check how much power your fridge uses i.e. AMPS/WATTS etc then get a surge protecter that can cope with that load. If you buy a guarenteed one and your fridge gets damaged, you will be able to claim.

depend on where the surge is. from power line, then most likely your psu is fried. if it comes from the modem/telephone line then probably your motherboard is fried.

2 years ago I purchased a Boston micro-system cd /clock radio. It has worked fine but now it shows a slight light when I plug it it to a a power outlet but I try to activate them there is no response...


Thank you for your question.

There is a good chance that this radio got a power surge which may have been caused by the power going out and then when it comes back on, there is a surge. In some cases, a "brown out" does more damage than a surge.

For example, if a telephone pole fell over and the power lines were arcing in your neighborhood, your lights may flicker for several minutes. This can damage many electronic items in your home.

If this clock has a battery backup, try removing the battery and replace it.

If there is no response, you may want to take it to an independent electronics repair person and have him check the power circuit.

Chances are that the circuit board behind the ac power cord will be damaged.

Not cooling after power surge in neighborhood


Try to unplug it and plug it back in. A lot of times that will reset the board. It may have fried the start relay on the compressor. I have no idea what fridge you have so it's hard to say.

Power surge, TV will not turn on


Power surges are extremely unpredictable, they can damage everything inside the tv, from the power supply printed circuit board, to the main printed circuit board. Normally the power supply takes alot of the damage from these things, so check over the power supply for any damaged components, any burnt out parts on printed circuit board, and also check the fuse. Good luck.

Keypad/clock went blank


Normally when a power surge lands a direct hit on a non protected circuit board, it will usually fry it completely. you can confirm this by shutting down the power for 5 minutes. if the control doesn't respond after the 5 minutes of no power, this will confirm circuit failure due to the surge and, you will need to replace the board in this case.

Power Surge at Home


This time it came in on the cable, the clue was the cable box also blew. So if you had a cable surge supression device...for HDTV, I think you would have survived the second surge.

I do have the technology. It is a F-connector type and will handle HDTV signal.

Receiver in Protection Mode


Electronics like a receiver are so sensitive to power surges. I'm sorry to say that it's most likely unrecoverable, especially if it wasn't plugged in to a surge protector. Even if it was, they don't all protect 100% from surges. :-/
