Question about Rival CF153-WM Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Electrical Shortage By Golly,The machine started smoking and shorted out. I'm scared to plug it back into a wall. The customer service at Walmart informed me that they could not except the return product there, even though I brought it from them in May 07. What's the real deal? I still have warranty and receipt. What do you recommend?

Broiler element heats up but smoke comes from behind where element it plugs into

Hello Paul;

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

You either have grease burning, insulating material burning or a short in the electrical wiring behind your oven back wall.

Do not use your broiler until the issue is fixed.

Turn the power off at your breaker box. Pull the oven out so you can get behind it. Remove the back cover and assets the problem.

Go into the following website, put in your model number and you will get diagrams, part numbers and cost. If you need a part, record the part number and search the internet for best price.

My Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washing Machine is showing a F28 error. What does that mean?

F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28
  • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  • Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
  • Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation when our chat has concluded Thanks again Rick

    Clogged and not working, then started smoking after uncloged

    I strongly advice not to plug it back again before inspection. The machine seem to have an electrical short curcuit that cause the fire. This can be due to just a litle bit water that leak over an elctrical wire and it might need just to replace a gasket or something similar. However if you just plug it on again the overhating might melt many electrical parts or even worst can melt everything insite the machine and cause a fire also. So the machine need to be open by an expericed engineer and make a good visual inspection. If you are lucky and you didnt left the machine on after you saw the smoke for long time the machine might just need only a gasket which was leaking from the begining. I advice if you can open the machine yourself to be sure that the engineer will not charge you much for repairing it for just a leak. However if you see many parts burned and melt then estimate the cost before proceed with fixing it. the maximu limit for repairing the machine is the half price of a new one.

    I have a electrical smoke coming from the back of the machine when it is heating

    The machine have a water leak and the water make an electrical contact so the smoke. You should solve the leak before something will meld from the electrical short heating produced.

    Toastmaster Coffee Maker, Model No. TCM12PW, made noise & smoked

    Well I can tell you that your heating element and the connection that plugs into your electrical cord certainly shorted out. After going through some consumer reviews that particular model is not too well spoken of and has caused considerable problems from spill overs, leaking internally (not good for electrical connections) and operation as a whole. There are several forums that you can read actual customer comments such as your own. For the price of what that one costs at a discount I do not know whether your best solution is to get it fixed. Since it is relatively new I would get on the internet and google coffeemakers in general and you will get a good idea for a more reliable and safer replacement.
