Remove the front panel. Reach up inside on the latch side and find the pull ring to release the door latch.

Lg washing machine wf-sp950g de ( door error )


Hi Azlan.
de Door Error usually shows when the door lock either won't undo...OR The machine won't start after the door is closed.
Both these situations probably mean that the door 'Interlock' is faulty.
The interlock is the part of the door lock which prevents you from opening the door while the machine is working.
It's part of the electrical circuit and should only be serviced by a qualified technician.
Good luck

How do I fix my washing machine


If your washer was working previously please read below.
Thermal Overload Protection

Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.

My fridge keeps tripping the power


Your solution is one of two things.

First is the circuit you have plugged the refrigerator is either over its limit and the breaker is tripping because it is overloaded. In this case you will have to determine what load also share this circuit and eliminate the extra loads or move the cord to another circuit which is not overloaded. Most home circuit are wired with 14 gauge and is rated at 15 amps. When the circuit gets to 15 amp and more, the associated breaker trips to prevent overload.

Second, Your refrigerator may have a short and needs troubleshooting to find the cause. To see if it is a bad circuit try plugging into a circuit via extension cord to circuit in another room receptical. The reason I say another room, when electrical installers wire circuits, you can put several recepticles on the same circuit. If you plug your refrigerator in the same circuit you had it on before then you will get the same problem, your refrigerator tripping again. If your frig trips on a different circuit then troubleshooting the cause will normally require a tech.

Good luck and hope this helps.

I have the toshiba 23hlv85 and it will not power up, red light on when plugged in, maybe the power source???


Hello Corey hi, Its not the power source but the power supply circuit board on your TV. this is where the red light is connected. this simply means that there is an overload/short circuit somewhere inside your TV. this overload prevents the power supply board to turn on for protection. To find the overload in your TV, needs the services of a technician. Usually they swap boards and isolate where the problem is. I suggest you inquire about your problem to your dealer. see if they have after-market service.

When I turn on unit, a message "overload" appears.


Check the speakers and the power supply for any signs of shorting.
This is due to the fact that the safety circuit works to switch off the set preventing a high damage.
So check the output for short or the presection .

Protect appears on screen even after resetting


Unfortunately you have a short in your speaker wiring then, the thing this is doing is preventing the current from running threw the speaker wires. when the wires are touching each other or ground they are shorting out the circuit.
to prevent overload the system actually shuts the voltage off to the speakers and the head unit locks up with error codes. check that you did not use electrical tape and that the connection has become undone, current always finds the path of least resistance.

so it is flowing to ground in your case. possibility a wire may have rubbed against a metal component and wore the shielding on the wires protective casing.

one other possibility is that something like the yellow wire known as the clock memory wire, was connected to a dimmer control circuit. this would explain the problems your having, but the most likely cause is the bad wiring issue.

good luck with it.and thanks for using Fixya.

SEWING THREAD COLLECTED IN BOBBIN AREA MACHINE JAMMED AND TURNED OFF AND WILL NOT TURN ON AGAIN


If you check your threading, you will most likely find that the take-up lever is not threaded. The jam in the bobbin case caused the safety fuse to blow to prevent the circuit board to overload.

Replacing the fuse is quite easy, but requires a knowledgeable service person.

Kenmore 66512690 problem


Hi,
Appliances which use heating elements almost always have an internal overload protection switch. This overload usually looks like a small diode or resistor somewhere on your incomming power inside the machine. Try to find this overload and bridge it out and try the machine again. These overloads usually have a rather limited life span and are most often the cause of a "dead" machine.
Best wishes,

Power seat not working


go here for help

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/villagerquest/

Circuit Protection
Power is supplied to the seat motors through the 30A POWER WINDOW fuse. The fuse is located in the LH engine compartment fuse junction panel and is hot at all times. The circuit breaker is behind the interior fuse junction panel and prevents current overload and component damage.

Compressor won't run


the over-current relay is tripping out the compressor motor to prevent excessive current through motor windings. To prove this theory, open unit, find motor wires, disconnect wires from unit, and apply 120VAC to motor using external circuit-breaker source. Run 2 minutes max. If motor continuously turns, then relay is failing. Find it by tracing wires back to source and finding a small rectangular item. If motor again quits after 2 seconds, then this motor has an internal over-current self-resetting fuse that may be doing its job of preventing an electrical overload from a dead (shorted) motor.
