Sounds like an obvious short circuit somewhere. Make absolutely sure that you have wired the new switch in correctly. Good components should have three wires. White, Black, and Green. The Green wire is ALWAYS the ground and is usually wired to the frame or some other metal part and then is connected all the way down the cord to the (round) ground lug in the plug. White and Black should wire color to color and is especially important on two-wire plugs as this denotes polarity and ground. If you have the same problem after checking that all your connections are correct, then you have a short in the motor itself or one of your connections is not insulated properly and is contacting some part of the fan, causing the short circuit. BE CAREFUL...electricity will ALWAYS take the path of least resistance.and that could be through you!

Kozi pellet stove wont lite keeps blowing fuse


If your Kozi pellet stove has an igniter (located in a steel tube under the fire pot), check to make sure the igniter isn't shorted out (dead short).

I recently purchased a used Kozi 100XL that had an igniter that was bad. I also found that, prior to me buying the stove, the old igniter had been twisted inside its steel tube under the fire pot bringing its two wires at the end of the igniter together. These touching wires likely were throwing circuit breakers for the previous owner of the stove but, by the time I bought the unit, this had resulted in a burned wire at the fan thermal switch where one of the igniter wires connects. After repairing the burned wire, I plugged the stove back in and a house circuit breaker was thrown. A new igniter repaired the problem.

BTW, Kozi has a better than excellent online customer service who will likely walk you through any problems with your stove. They did for me even though they knew my stove had been purchased used.

Skil HD77 that blows breaker no matter which plug in I use. This saw was bought on e-bay and does not appear to have abused except for new plug on very short cord. I checked end of plug and it appeaers to...


there is a direct short somewhere, recheck the plug end for correct wiring and if OK then it is in the cord or the motor itself, I would think the cord or plug first.

Cooling fan is not coming on at all how do i wire it up to come on when car is started and stops when car is turned off


Here is a wiring diagram of how you should by-pass that cooling fan by using a toggle switch, and you can get a fuse holder and use a 30 amp fuse instead of a 30 amp circuit breaker, but you should use the circuit breaker since you are no longer using a relay, and if there is a voltage spike the circuit breaker will reset itself, and a fuse will blow out and you will have to change it. Most auto parts stores will carry the 30 amp toggle switch and circuit breaker, also be sure to use 10 ga. wire and do not forget the wire connectors that you will need to attach the wires to the toggle switch, the circuit breaker, and to the battery as well as the connection to the cooling fan wires.

This wiring diagram is very basic and you should be able to follow it with little difficulty, and you should also dis-connect the cooling fan at the wiring connector to the cooling fan and connect the by-pass wiring directly to the cooling fan motor so that you do not run voltage back through the stock system. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Lemon chain switch


To get a free switch you will have to take it out and take it back to where you bought it and they will replace it or just take the whole thing back and get a brand new one because of the switch. thats the only way you will get a free switch.

We have 2 identical fans in 2 different bedrooms. I had an aircompressor going and my daughter was running a blow dryer and it blew the breaker. Now both fans don't run, but the lights work. ?? the black...


Do me a favor, prior to reading on any further; did you try pulling (or turning) on the fan chain? As simple as this sounds, I've experienced this before. And I'd rather you try the simple solution first, before opening up the fixture. Okay, if that didn't work - the first TURN OFF the light switch or circuit breaker before working on these fixture's. If you're not well schooled in doing electrical work, I'd advise turning the circuit breaker off along with the wall switch. Now, when you open up your fixture, the black wire should be hooked up to the fan motor(s) lead wire; and the blue wire to your light(s) lead wire. Now, if both your fan and light were working before, then the wires at the fixture (black/motor and blue/light) were wired together. If so, then it could've blown both motor(s)? But I don't believe it did. Now that you've checked everything out, and your ready to turn the fixture back on. Keep the wall switch in the off position. Then go turn on your circuit breaker. If everything holds, then turn the wall switch on. It's done in this manner for safety reason's. Try this, and then let me know how it went. You should be good to go. Good Luck, and feel free to contact me again if you have any problems. Jim

First check for bunrt wires that can be grounded, then you can disconnect the compressor and plug the freezer and if doesn't blow the breaker , the compressor is bad ,if still blows them ,put the compressor back and try the fan , then try the other fan(inside one) or also could be the light switch, or the defrost heaters.

A hager b6 fuse has blown - normally the switch flips off and you push the switch back to on and power is restored - here the switch is limp and wont stay in the on position - i cannot see how you remove...


I have just done this myself and without blowing myself up.
1. Tools needed will be a torch and a philips screwdriver
2. Switch off your mains.
3. Check your mains are off
4. On the fuse itself they are two screws. One above the hager sign and one below. Unscrew these. The top screw keeps the wire in from the mains and bottom screw is to keep fuse screwed to the actual fuse box
5. You should be able to remove your fuse now
6. On your new fuse there will be a white piece at the back. Pull that down
7. When the fuse is removed you will see the wire which is now free and on the bottom a plug which is where your new fuse slots in.
8. Slot your new fuse on the plug and tighten the bottom screw.
9. Put your wire in place on the top of the fuse and tighten the top screw.
10. Switch your new fuse on the "on" position.
11. Put back your cover on your fuse box
12. Switch your mains back on.

Switch turning ac off


Check the wiring of the fan motor and the compressor itself.There is some short circuit that trips off the circuit breaker or blows the fuses. Do the following isolation procedure:
  1. Disconnect the fan motor from the circuit then turn the ACU on.
  2. If the switch does not pop up then the fan motor is the culprit. The windings are probably damaged and shorted when the fan fell down. The fan motor bushing/bearing are most probably damaged and caused the rotor to touch the stator and eventually damaged the windings. In this case replacement of the fan motor is the key.
  3. If the switch still pops up, disconnect the compressor then run the fan motor.
  4. If the popping up of the switch disappears, replace the compressor. You may need the service of qualified appliance technician to do job.

Inside the air is blowing, but the outside unit fan isn't moving at all. HOUSE IT HOT!!!


Two things; outside does the compressor try to come on? If not you may have a switch\Thermotat problem. Also make sure the breaker to the outside unit hasn't tripped. If it has tripped there may still be a problem after you turn the breaker back on. If it's only the fan that's not coming on outside you will need a new capacitor or fan motor and compressor(if the fan motor is replaced you should have a new capacitor also. If it has been intensely hot your unit might have just gotten overworked. Then resetting the breaker is all that is needed. If you have continuos resettings you MUST call a qualified HVAC Tech.

My Maytag MTF2172HR* keeps blowing the fuse


Hello,
You guys are gonna LOVE this one.
I called a local appliance repair man, who said it sounds like the compressor.
He went on to tell me if it was the compressor, I would have forked over $75.00 to him, and, now need a new fridge, as it's probably not worth to replace.
I was a bit angry, so, deciding what to do, I started snooping around the back of the fridge.
Everything back there looks brand new, and clean, so I was starting to think it wasn't the compressor.
I put in a new breaker in the circuit panel, and, still blew.
As I was behind the fridge, I grabbed the power cord, and felt something strange- looked down, the power cord was cut through and twisted, exposing the little wires inside, and, visibly crossing them.
So, I'm going to go to the appliance store, and see if they have a replacement power cord.
Thanks,
