I have cut the extension cord when using a ryobi RHT-600R hedge trimmer. It now won't work when using a new cord. Is there something I need to reset?


Was it plugged in to an outside receptacle? If so are you trying to plug into it after new cord? Try a different receptacles if you want to be sure go inside the house and plug it in. Try it. If it works. The outside recepticles are on a GFCI circuit an have a test and reset button on it reset it if it does not work check the panel box for a trip breaker turn it all the way off then on again to reset breaker.

# 1 you should never dry out a radio with a heat gun.#2 the reverse polarity diode is what is blowing out. take that wire you fixed and toss it.go to Rad Shak or a truck stop and buy a power cord with a lighter plug attached. .Then have someone you can trust replace d23. hook up your coax then your cord turn it on and you are good to go.

Hi , i have a Kenmore dryer special edition model # 110-8866291 stop working after i open the door while it running , did i blow the fuse ? please help .


its supposed to stop when you open the door,, close the door and try starting it up again, if it doesn't, its going to be one of 2 things,, the thermal fuse blew, they are located in the back of the machine or the door safety switch went out, you can check that by by passing it,, just jumper the 2 wires to it together and hit start , if you have no power at all to the machine, I'd check the thermal fuse first

No power


Proper Voltage from the House

Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in.

If your dryer's door switch is defective, it will not allow your dryer to start. Test your dryer's door switch. If it is defective, replace it.

check the thermal fuse in the back of the machine,, remove the back you'll see it

A capacitor shorted (popped) in the power supply then the fuse blew (went black) unplug TV, remove back cover, look for power supply; follow cord to it; find small silver can with top bubbled (bad)
unsolder/replace; replace fuse. plug in turn on.

you have more than likely ruined the control board on the refrige,a dryer and refrigerator should each be on their own dedicated circuit,they use an enormous amount of current to start, and even if one is running and the other starts thats enough to trip even a 30 amp receptacle, and furthermore extension cord use on these types of appliances even a large gauge cord i.e. 12 ga. that will carry 20 amps is not even a good idea because of voltage drop,as this causes motors to draw excessive current and over heat the motors and reduce appliance efficiency too

Worked well, then blew the fuse.


What you should do next is stop using an extension lead. As you've already discovered, there's a risk of the connection getting wet, which is potentially very dangerous, but this is probably not the main problem. Most extension leads (the normal domestic type) are simply not capable of carrying the current needed to run your pressure washer.
Rather than using an electrical extension, use an extension high-pressure hose and work further away from the machine (which also makes it easier to keep the machine dry).
If this doesn't sort the problem, please post here again and we'll try something else.  Good luck!
