No power to machine.

I checked the outlet and where the plug connects to the machine and they both have power. Is the machine dead?

Where is the vent duct located on my Maytag Atlantis dryer? Is it worth fixing this dryer when it's a 2001?

HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

Sewing machine was shocked it won't turn on when plugged


this is all i can find out at the moment.Check the electrical outlet for power and reset the house circuit breaker if the outlet is dead. Replace the outlet cord if it's worn or damaged. Unplug the sewing machine and check for loose wires. Replace the on/offswitch if it's defective.

The control panel of microwave dead. No lights on the panel. There is power to the outlet


If it worked after unplugging and reinserting, it is possible that there is a wiring problem with the plug and wiggling the wires "re-made" a connection. Try plugging in to another outlet to eliminate a dodgy outlet problem.

My 6313 is dead


1st check your cables from the outlet to the machine........are all the cables firmly in place.

2nd check the outlet......do you have power coming to your machine.....(this can be checked by plugging something else into the outlet and seeing if t works).

Try these two things first, as further repairs will cost money.

The power wont turn on


check first the power cable if properly connected to the back (or side) of the machine and on the power outlet. if its plugged in to a power extension, unplug it from the machine and from the power outlet, leave it like that for 2mins, and plug it back to the machine then directly to the wall outlet instead. if theres still no power, press down and hold the power button for 30secs, if nothing happens, the machine is dead, if its still under warranty, bring it to the store for free service.

check to see it is plugged into the outlet, battery may be dead, check to see the outlet has power, and the power cord is working.

if you are confident you can, then open the laptop casing and make sure there are no broken or loose connections, then reclose it.

NO POWER


do any of the lights come on when you press the power button? if nothing comes on, then check the GFI outlet and see if it has tripped. quick check would be to unplug the washer from the wall and plug in a lamp. if the lamp doesn't work either, then the outlet doesn't have power.

either the GFI needs to be reset or the circuit breaker at the main panel needs to be reset. one GFI will control a couple of outlets that could be exposed to water (eg, bathrooms, laundry rooms, outdoors, etc). you'll need to find the one and hit the RESET button on the outlet.

if the GFI outlet is reset and still no power to the lamp, then find the circuit breaker panel (usually in a garage, basement or outdoors). open the door and see if one of the breakers has tripped. reset it (or replace if its an old style glass fuse) and see if power is now restored to the outlet cause the lamp now lights up.

if power is there to the outlet, but the washer still will not come on (and either work or display error codes), then one more thing to check is the connection at the machine/motor control unit (connector P13 at the unit). disconnect the washer from the wall outlet. to access P13, you'll have to remove the top console panel (its the one that has all on the buttons on it). its held on with 3 screws on the back that you can get to from the top (no need to move the washer out from the wall). loosen the screws, tip the the panel forward and lift it up. it will be connected to the computer board, so just move it out of the way. P13 will have the large black wires going to it. give it a push to see if its not locked in place. if you hear a "click", then it was not properly connected. you can remove it and reinstall it if you want, but make sure the machine is not plugged into the wall outlet.

put the console back together, plug the washer in and see if it works. if it still doesn't power up, then sounds like the computer board is dead and you'll need a new one. its about $150 from searspartsonline. replacing it is easy, but sears may pay $150 towards labor and $100 towards parts. give them a call.

good luck.
