SOURCE: My whirlpool gold microwave model

Your thermal overload (thermostat) is bad if the oven powers up when you jump across it.

Are you sure the thermostat is the correct part for your model?

It should be part # 8183703. You can get that here.

SOURCE: need replacement thermal overload protector

Check the Radio Shack website. Match the temperature rating of the thermal fuse.

These can't be soldered in -- the heat will blow them -- they are best crimped in.

The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire2_bing.gif. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers2_bing.gif one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers2_bing.gif) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the pump goes out on thermal overload all the time

First be sure it is wired for the voltage that you have. eg if you have 110V circuit be sure pump is wired for 110V. If you have access to an amp meter, measure the current while pump is running and be sure that it doesn't exceed the full load amps on the motor name plate. If it does, decrease water flow by some method. For instance smaller return jets. The more water you pump (volume not pressure) the harder the motor works.

I apologize I do not know what a "warm morning gas stove" is but a thermocouple is a safety device that is part of a larger assembly of parts often referred to as an oxygen depletion sensor. I can explain that in more depth if necessary but usually a thermocouple generates an electronic charge from heat applied by a pilot flame. The pilot flame will have small holes at the base of where the flame comes through and small bits of dirt, dust, dander, pollen, animal hair can get into these tiny holes and cause problems with the flame pattern. The reason the system is called an oxygen depletion system is because the flame behaves a particular way and will change direction if oxygen is low. The direction will take the heat away from the thermocouple which causes a solenoid in the valve to close. If the air-holes are dirty this will also affect the flame and cause it to move away from the thermocouple so the solenoid closes.
the same effect can happen if there are air-current problems which cause overheating of the valve which can damage the plastic housing of the solenoid. This happens in barbecues and fireplaces more often than other appliances. Usually the problem is the air-mixer holes. turn everything off and put a vacuum hose over the pilot and just leave it there for 10 minutes. Identify the small air holes and leave the vacuum hose there as well so it creates a current out.
The user's manual will often say to use compressed air but this can push dirt further into the gas line so use a vacuum.

Thermal cut out

Probably the internal temperature sensor, not a difficult job but if you attempt it yourself kill all power to oven.

Thermal couplet lights up blue flame shoots out. then clicks off.1996 amana 90.

The thermocouple needs replaced. Most are available from a big box hardware store for around $10. They sometimes go bad but still look okay. I keep a spare for my furnace and my water heater. It's a 10 minute job, using simple, common hand tools.

Fire goes out and gas continues

What you described is not unusual with the main burners of a gas grill. As, there is no thermocouple on each burner, that would shut the gas off to that burner. You must turn the burner off, yourself. To the best of my knowledge, there is only one American made grill that has a thermocouple on each burner and it isn't a Weber grill.

If it's the infrared rotisserie burner, you're talking about, then that's a problem. That burner does have a thermocouple that may need cleaning or replacing.

Hope this helps to solve the problem.

I've a stoves efa600h electric oven and grill, and it's stopped working! It will switch on, and start up even as normal, but then after not very long (not long enough to cook oven chips) it's as if all...

There seems to be an overload switch in the stove and that is tripping out and resetting after the 10 minute interval. You need to find out if the overload switch is faulty and tripping out at a lower load, which is the more likely scenario, or if the stove is really overloading the switch. A snap amp meter around one of the cables will give you the stove current draw. Probab;y easier than doing that will be to replace the switch and see if that fixes the problem.

Pilots lites , holds ok for minutes,but once move

Hello KJGreen, It sounds, based on your description, as though the thermocouple is faulty and should be replaced. If the pilot light stays lit and you've left it on for several minutes before turning the knob on to light the log set, then that indicates that the thermocouple is bad.

The thermocouple is a safety device (heat sensor) designed to stop the flow of gas to the burner in the event the gas flame goes out and the pilot goes out. The sensor will only allow the gas valve to open once it has reached the preset temperature.

To confirm that the thermocouple is defective, I would light the pilot light and allow it to remain lit for up to 10 minutes before I attempted to turn on the log burner. If, after 10 minutes, the log burner still won't stay lit, then you know that the thermocouple needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the burner should light, since after 10 minutes, the sensor should be hot enough to signal the gas valve to open.

If you are going to have this replaced, please make sure you use only an approved supplier, since an incorrect replacement part could cause an unwelcome malfunction of the gas log burner. Safety should be primary when dealing with open flame burners.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My GE gas fired water heater pilot goes out after 10- 15 minutes. Water heater was manufactured in 2005

you will need to change the thermal coupling,, when it is lit look at it and make sure there is no water dripping down on it, but for now it just sounds like the thermocoupling

Belling G755 Cooker oven wont stay lit

I'll give this a go! With a cooker like this, you depress and then turn the control knob, press the ignition button and continue to depress the control knob for a few seconds. This is because a device called a thermocouple is heated by the flame and you have to continue to depress the control knob so that sufficient gas flows to heat up the thermocouple. If the thermocouple does not get hot or stay hot then the gas valve is automatically closed - stopping the gas. The thermocouple is a 'flame failure' safety device. If the gas gets cut off then the flame goes out and the thermocouple goes cold switching off the gas valve automatically. However, you are having to try and manually keep the gas going for a good five minutes. I would think that there is either a problem with the thermocouple or the gas control valve! Tony
