If you switch oven on it trips main power. what can cause that


Probably close to 50 things could cause that, but here are a few of the most common: Bare wire in a harness of the oven, causing a short-circuit in the line. Faulty plug on the power cord. Outlet in the wall is damaged. Loose wire in the outlet box, causing a dead short. Bad wire between the outlet box and the main breaker box. Weak breaker, or a breaker that isn't heavy enough to handle the load of the oven. (especially, if you just bought a new oven, it may need a larger breaker to handle start up.) Use a fused multi-meter (voltmeter) to check for these issues, and do not try to fix it if you are not familiar with electrical work. It could cause a fire, or give you a deadly shock.

Electrical outlets in my 98 skyline fifthwheel stopped working.but there's power going out of the breakers


This is an indication of a failed connection. Somewhere. Since you probably do not know how the affected circuit was run, it's going to take some time - but it's not difficult work. But before we roll up our sleeves - first locate and RESET any Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) type outlet. If any fail to reset - replace it with another GFI outlet with the same electrical rating. Pay attention to which cables and wires that are connected LINE and LOAD terminals wires when removing and replacing! Don't forget to check outlets on the outside of the 5th wheel.

Circuits fail almost always at connections. Wires and cables in walls don't just "break" in the middle. We need to check connections in the bad circuit. First, plug lights in all the outlets. Turn the circuit breaker for the bad circuit from ON to OFF. Note which lights shut off. With the break OFF, check the outlets that WORKED.

We're looking for the point that power entered the outlet box, but due to a failed connection is unable to leave it and feed the first failed outlet. Check and tighten all screw terminals and wirenuts. Check both hot and neutral wires. Make sure no wires are loose, pull out or are burned (cut and strip back these wires and reconnect / wirenut). Try to power the circuit to see if you found the problem after each check - if not - repeat at the next outlet that worked until you find the problem. If you are still unable to get it working after checking the working outlets, repeat the process on each of the non-working outlets. If still unable to get it working, check ceiling fixtures as it is not uncommon to wire to the light fixture first and then feed down to outlets.

Error code E61 shows on my Frigidair Affinity washer. Do you know what E61 Means?


Hello Murray;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Hi E61 means that the control board is sensing an incorrect/abnormal voltage present at its input.

1.) Unplug the unit for 5 minutes. If the error comes back -

2.) Lets check your power cord:

25312932-afrvsgx533hrt2fm3x2q05f0-4-0.jpg
a.) Unplug the machine. Is the middle connector on your power cord connected to 'N'?
b.) Tighten all the connectors. Make sure you have a good ground.
c.) Check the voltage. Between 'L2' & 'N' = 110V, 'L1' & 'N' = 110V, 'L2' & 'L3' = 240V.

3.) Lets check your control board for shorts:

a.) The following link will show you how to access. Ground yourself by rubbing your hands on bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board.
b.) Check all of the connections, push in on the wires at the connectors.
c.) Reassemble and try to start

4.) Well, if none of the above solved the problem, you have to replace the control panel.

My toshiba tv wont power on


Check circuit breakers, fuses, and wired connections. In some cases a power surge can disrupt the power board. If you had a power outage and the TV was plugged into the outlet, s surge can damage vital parts.

No power to two outlets other two work in the room on the same grid circuit box isn't tripping


There is a possibility that the two outlets that are not working are on the lower end of that particular circuit. If that is the case, there is also a big possibility that the connections on one of the working outlets is not transferring the current to the other two that are not working. Suggest you verify that the the connections feeding current on down the circuit line are tight and well connected. Hope this works. For safety sake, ensure that the breaker for that circuit is turned off before you start fiddeling arown with the connections. Good Luck.

Two of the electrical outlets in our kitchen have no power. I checked to make sure the connections were tight and they were, still no power. Then I replaced both of them with new receptacles (ones that...


Each outlet receives power from previous outlet box or switch box in a long chain of parallel wiring back to ceiling box, or junction box, and then back to circuit breaker.
Use process-of-elimination to find problem.
Locate all boxes on same circuit breaker. Locate box before the two dead boxes... it can be in ceiling light, or switch box, or outlet box. Then test those wires. Look for loose quick connect where wires are pushed into hole on back of device, or loose white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box.

Home fuse box breaker issue


Hi Rex,

It sounds as if the upstairs bathroom outlet and the outdoor outlet are on the same circuit. There's a very good chance that these are GFI or "ground fault interrupter" type outlets, as these locations (and others) have required this type of protection for over 30 years. It was a common practice to run a circuit from the panel to one of these locations (or another) and then run from here to the next outlet and then on to the next. Since the GFI outlet could be purchased for around $10 instead of $30 for a GFI breaker, electricians would install outlets instead - both offered the same protection. A "regular" breaker would supply power to this circuit - but the very first outlet would get a GFI type outlet. It would be wired to the LINE terminals and the cable that feeds the rest of the outlets on this circuit would be connected to the LOAD terminals. If there was a ground fault condition, this GFI outlet would trip, but the circuit breaker would remain on. You would locate and RESET the tripped GFI outlet to restore power. The only time the circuit breaker would trip is if the circuit was overloaded. Overloads would NOT cause the GFI outlet to trip.

Now that you understand how it was typically wired years ago (and still a lot of times today), you should check all the outlets outside your home, in bathrooms, basements, garages, and inside your home next to doorways that lead directly to grade of your lawn or deck. These are required places for GFI protection. Press the RESET on any tripped GFI outlet to restore power. If the outlet will not RESET, there is a condition where the hot wire (black, red or blue insulated wire) is in contact with ground, or a device or appliance connected to the circuit has a problem. Unplug anything connected to the circuit and attempt to RESET again. If still unable to reset, open the outdoor outlet again and carefully pull it out and away from the box. Inspected for damaged or crushed insulation and repair / tape as needed. Before reinstalling, try to reset again. If it holds, trip the GFI by pressing TEST button. The RESET button should pop out. Reinstall the outlet and make sure the wires are not crushed or cut. Press the RESET button again. If it trips, you will have to remove the outlet again and take more precautions against damage to the insulation. it is also possible that the GFI outlet itself has failed, in which case it should be replaced.

GFI circuit breakers and outlets are supposed to be tested monthly by simply pressing the TEST button and then the RESET button. Replace any GFI device that does not test correctly if wiring and devices / appliances connected are OK.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Everstar mpm2-10cr-bb6 will not reset on power cord. light on reset doesn't light. seems like no power is getting to the unit.


Check the outlet that the unit is plugged into, to be sure that it is in fact, working. The circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel for that outlet, may have tripped. Also, the outlet may have interior damage or a loose wire connection. If the unit seems not to be getting power, one of the above is the problem. Try plugging the unit into another outlet in a different room.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The breaker itself does not seem to trip completely. The power will go off to the lights and outlets on the circuit for the breaker. When attempting to reset, the breaker is not in off position, but when...


It is a clear case of metal contacts getting heated/melted/burn out due to overload/short-circuit inside. Please get the circuit breakers replaced with a new one to avoid fire hazard.

Unplug your power cord from the socket outlet.
remove the back cover where the power cord connection is housed. visually check the connection, expose wire harness might touches the cover somehow. or the cover was dent that causes the bare wire to touched the cover. correct the dent if any, or tighen loose wire.assemble back cover. Reset your circuit breaker to your Stove because the pop sound might trip off your breaker. That should solve the problem.
