SOURCE: Modular Home Wiring Schematics

I disagree totally. Nobody wastes copper wire, especially idiots (because they make less money). Thoose extra wires are VITAL. The way to identify them would be to get a long extension cord, long enough to reach main breaker box. TURN OFF MAIN POWER SWITCH TO ENTIRE HOME. Make sure the "line" or "hot" wires are dead (since there are two boxes looped together, this house system may not be dead just from a switch). Once you are sure nothing is hot, use a VtVm to loop through the extension cord to each wire in main breaker box (top and bottom of each line/switch) and the bundle of wires in stove/oven box, testing continuity on each one. This will identify exactly where each wire DOES go... unfortunately, then you must determine where it SHOULD go (and sounds to me like those answers will be quite different) Be sure to get a VALID ground, since the stove is used near water. On mobile homes, this means hammering a long rebar or (specific, commercial copper grd rod) into the soil.

LETS START HERE , MOST OF THE GFCI BREAKERS WILL SOMETIMES RUN THROUGH THE BATH ROOM OUTLETS AND THEN OUTSIDE IF YOU HAVE A GFCI IN THE BATH OR LAUNDRY OR BASEMENT OR GARAGE MAKE SURE NONE OF THE RESET BUTTONS ARE IN THE TRIP POSITION THE NEC CODE CALLS FOR ALL OF THE LISTED PLACES AS WELL AS CRAWL SPACES AND NEXT TO AC/HEATPUMP TO BE ALL GFCI AND TO SAVE MONEY AND WIRE MOST OF THESE ARE DAISEY CHAINED TOGETHER TO SAVE MONEY SO THEY PUT ONE CLOSE TO THE BREAKER PANEL AND FEED THE REST OFF IT IT WILL BE A GOOD CK I HAVE HAD MANY CALLS FOR THIS THROUGH THE YEARS

SOURCE: navigation system, radio, front power outlet failure

The solution is to buy a new mini fuse (Blue #15) at an autonation or similar. Open the passenger side kick plate fuse box and pull out the fuse in position #9 (upper most left fuse). You will need needle nose pliers or tweezers etc... Insert new fuse and you are done. 50 cent repair and 30 seconds spent screwing with it. Enjoy! Oh, and don't worry about blowing it again. Best I can say is when starting the car, unplug the power sucking device like a radar. Once car is on you can re-insert it the radar. The initial jolt of powering everything on all at once is what blew your fuse in the first place. Get a few additional fuses to have on hand just in case.

SOURCE: 15 AMP versus 20 AMP outlet plug

The circuit is protected by the 15 amp breaker. That's what matters, the wire size and the breaker feeding it. It's OK to have a 20 amp recepticle fed by a 15 amp breaker.

My gfi plug in my garage keeps opening up. Nothing is plugged into any outlet connected to the common breaker. Replaced the gfi outlet with the same result.


You are sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit anywhere? Have you checked outside the garage? You could be getting water into the plug outside, you could have a nick in the wire inside the wall. this could be caused by a staple pinching the wire. If you are able to follow the circuit wiring and go back to the beginning of the circuit and install the GFCI in the beginning plug outlet. Do not connect the rest of the circuit just the wire from the breaker to the first outlet. If it holds then your problem is between the first and last outlet. narrow down the are this way. You can also buy a cheap "dummy" tester that has 2 yellow and one red light on it. The tester will tell you what problem you may have.

Each outlet receives power from previous outlet box or switch box in a long chain of parallel wiring back to ceiling box, or junction box, and then back to circuit breaker.
Use process-of-elimination to find problem.
Locate all boxes on same circuit breaker. Locate box before the two dead boxes... it can be in ceiling light, or switch box, or outlet box. Then test those wires. Look for loose quick connect where wires are pushed into hole on back of device, or loose white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box.

Our window AC unit stopped suddenly. Completely dead. The outlet has power. It's a 220V unit. LG window AC LW2510ER Any advise what it could be? Does it shut down when it's 100F outside? Thanks...


No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Good Luck!

Lead display is keep on flashing up on start sequence


Have you tried checking the fuse or the circuit breaker? Are both the washer and dryersharing the same two outlet duplex outlet or are they on two totally separate outlets? Just to eliminate/isolate the outlet question after you check the circuit breakers or fuses in your fuse box, try plugging the dryer into a separate outlet. If like many people you do not have an extra outlet in your laundry area, try plugging another item into the dryer outlet to check it for power. This is if you are talking about a gas dryer that works on a 120-volt electrical outlet. If it is an electric dryer it will be on a 230-240 volt outlet with a special plug. If you have an old circuit panel that is still using fuses as opposed to modern circuit breakers and if this Is an electric dryer, you would have a 240 volt disconnect plug more than likely inside the panel and if you firmly grab the handle and yank it straight out, you will see that the disconnect plug will have two short cigar shaped Buss Fuses in it. If this is the case one or more of those fuses could be blown. Depending on the electrical requirements of the dryer those two fuses amy need to be between 20-30Amp rated. or else if you have the manual take a look in it , perhaps one of the fuses is gone .

No power. Will not turn on


Not intended to offend;
1. If using A/C (house electrical power), please check if electrical wall outlet is active. Attempt to plug-in another electrical device such as a lamp, clock, radio, etc.. If the electrical wall outlet has top and bottom plugs, try the top and then the bottom plug to see which one works. Sometimes, the top outlet will not work, yet the bottom outlet does work. The wall outlet should be replaced by qualified technician.
2. If both outlets do NOT work, and the outlet is GFCI breaker protected, maybe pressing the RESET switch on the outlet will power-up the outlet.
3. If the outlet is NOT GFCI breaker protected, check your electrical fuse box for a tripped fuse. Sometimes, a tripped fuse is NOT visible. May have to trip the specific fuse or all fuses to off, then back on. Recheck the wall outlet.
4. Once your know the outlet is live, check the power cord (a/c adapter for laptops) to make sure they are securely plugged-in to both the wall outlet AND the PC or Laptop.

Will need more information once the above steps are taken:

Is it a Desktop or Laptop?
Make and Model (if known)?
Any lights (glowing) on the desktop or laptop?
Any lights on the A/C adapter if its a laptop?

Inoperable electrical wall socket


The obvious would be a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Go to your main fuse box and check for that. If you have a GFI outlet or circuit breaker, reset that. Some outlets protected by Ground Fault Interrupters are gang wired, so there may be another outlet in the room that has the GFI outlet that controls the outlet you are using. You may have to check for them. The GFI outlet usually has two small push buttons on it, one is TEST and the other is RESET.
If it is not easily fixed by those items, you will most likely need to pull the outlet from the wall box and see if you can trace it from there. First check these as they are the easiest fixes.

Landice l 7 when turned on nothing lights up and nothing happens its dead


In order to do any of these tests you need to have a familiarity with electricity and a working knowledge of a voltage multimeter, if you don't then call a professional!! With that said you will need to remove the motor shroud then proceed with these steps:
1. Set your volt meter to AC volts, we are going to trace the power from the wall outlet through the treadmill to see where it ends.
2. With the treadmill unplugged, test the wall outlet. You should have from 115 to 125 VAC. Optimally, you will have at least 120 VAC.
3. Follow the power leads from the power cord to the lead ends. With the treadmill unplugged, connect your meter to the lead ends. Plug the treadmill in and check your reading. It should be the same as your reading from the wall outlet.
4. Continue this process with the electrical system, following the leads, as they pass through, breakers, fuses, and the like.
5. Where the power flow ends is where your problem is. Sometimes it will be in a bad connection, sometimes it will be in a shorted breaker or ( when checking the fuse unplug unit then check for continuity) blown fuse or a loose fuse in fuse holder, at times it may be as simple as a safety switch not working properly, or it may be a major problem with a component. If fuse is blown get the exact fuse ( 15 amp ceramic fuse) if it blows the fuse again, then you have a direct short in the Motor Control Board and will need replacement.

While air fluffing some shirts the dryer quit and will not start. is there a breaker or fuse internal to the unit?


Check the breaker in your home's breaker box. The dryer will be the only thing that is on it. It will be a double breaker and looking might not tell you if it has tripped. If it isn't marked just grab the swich and see if it's "wiggly" on each double breaker. If you find a wiggler, flip it all the way over to "off" then back to "on". If the breakers are all fine, the next place to check is the wall outlet itself. If you have a volt meter, first check the slots in the outlet. If you get nothing, pull the wall plate off of the outlet and check the wires leading to the outlet. If they have power, replace the outlet. To the best of my somewhat experienced knowledge, there is no fuse in dryer and I know there is no breaker in it.

Where is the fuse located in the air conditioner


Is this a split system? If it is then the fuse or breaker is in the disconnect box on the wall by the outside unit. You will see a grey flex conduit running from the unit to the box which is grey, it carries your 230 volt wires. Inside that box will either be fuses or a breaker.
If it's a window unit then it will be the breaker that supplies the power to that outlet.
