Question about Dishwashers

Fuse 13A in plug keeps blowing!

Had the DS62 for about 15yrs and no problems until now. It stopped part way thru cycle 2 and light was off, so changed fuse. Light then shows, but when door closes (for program to resume) it blows the fuse and 'trips' the main electrics board, three times in a row now. Advice please.

You have a dead short and /or a ground leakage in the wiring in the unit
call a technician for a thorough test and a proper diagnosis
after 15 years the insulation may be starting to break down causing the problems

Are you sure that there is a supply at the mains socket or that the 13A fuse in the plug is OK?

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch

If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

Hi, got a wt960. it stopped mid cycle(dont know at what stage but drum had water in it.) it took out the 13a plug fuse and after replacing the fuse the display does not function but the door lock still...

the problem may be your pressure switch. If you have a multimeter, use it to check for any electrical issues. If there is no reading the pressure switch needs to be replaced.

Tail and dash lights went out... when I replace the fuse it immediatly breaks again...

Remove all of the rear lights and replace fuse. if ok, then replace each one and recheck after each one to see which one(s) are blowing the fuse. I suspect someone tapped the back of your car and one (or more) of your lights has pressure on the bulb fixture, causing this problem.

Blowing fuze on f350 diesel for glow plugs

Most likely you have a shorted glow plug. First unplug all 8 leads and energize the start cycle which activates the timer box. If you blow a fuse now its the timer box thats shorted.

Then connect 1 or 2 leads at a time until you blow the fuse. You can unplug 1 of the last 2 to isolate the bad glowplug. Using the wire leads will keep you from having to remove every glowplug from the heads.

Check your ground wires to the timer box because the timer only cycles for the initial start. Also as the weather gets colder the timer can work longer but not indefinitely. That can be another reason for the fuse to blow.

I have a Bosch Exxcel 1400 S Express which blew

There is no internal fuse in the washer to replace.
If you have replaced the fuse, make sure that is is a good one.
If you are satisfied that you have power to the washer, then I'm afraid it sounds quite serious.
Trust this helps.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and

your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck
