What is the duse amp rating for the Fowl Play trap?

I recently purchased a do all Fowl Play trap. Immediately after assembling, I tried it out. I thought the instructions told me to keep the safety pin in. When the arm cycled and hit the pin, the motor burned out the fuse. I cannot read the amp rating of the fuse. I tried a 5 amp; but it only lasted a few seconds. What is the correct fuse amperage?

SOURCE: Fuse keeps burning out when replaced

If it blows as soon as you hit the "Start"pad to cook, it has a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Vent &light wont come on


Have you had trouble with the cooktop lights recently?

If so, we see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year guarantee.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Displayed F6


Depending on the brand and model, F6 may mean a shorted cook relay on the circuit board.

This is especially true in most recent Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, and Kenmore models.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

Upon startup, on high power, trips the circuit breaker. The microwave is on a dedicated 20 amp breaker. It's a recent vintage (2007) Kenmore unit, installed over a cooktop with the built in exhaust fan. I...


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor. See here.

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer. See here.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount. See this file.

You can find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number (from the tag in or on the unit) at the Sears parts site.

BUT once you have the part number from the Sears site, you can often get the parts cheaper here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I'm not finding it in the owner's manual, but there is a tag inside the cavity which should tell you either how many amps it requires or how many input watts it consumes.

If it gives you power in watts, just divide: #watts / 120V = current in amps.

If that tag doesn't tell you, maybe one on the back of the unit will.

It will probably be 13-18 amps, depending on whether its power output is 950 watts or 1200 watts.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

On that mini-manual, there should be a troubleshooting flowchart, and it will have a few different current measurement values on it. You should be able to decipher the normal draw from that.

If you're just trying to figure out how many amps the breaker should be on the microwave's power line, figure 15A for an oven rated at less than about 1000 watts output power, and 20A for an oven rated at over 1000W.

LG LRM2060ST trips circuit breaker sometimes


needs to have circuit of its own rated @ 20 amps powered by # 12-2-wg wire , also very good idea to plug into a good surge protector to protect its control board, as any computer the boards are very susceptible to spike voltage caused by lightning and power problems , as to how it worked before , breakers vary a little in the amount of current it takes to trip them with age , the number of time they have to be reset and heat they have been subjected to over a period of time so it is not unusual for say one 20 amp breaker to trip @ 16 and another @19 for example also the length of wire between the breaker and the appliance can effect the trip range

Jennair jmc8130dds fuse blown


I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. It took me a while to locate the information you requested. To answer your initial question, "YES" you will have to pull the whole unit out to access the fuse. The fuse is located on the input filter assembly board inside the oven. You will need to remove the exterior case to access it. If you go to pcappliancerepair.com you can find helpful illustrations, along with part numbers. Just type in the model number you provided and look at drawing number 5. This is a list of all the internal controls. The fuse is listed as item number 4 in the illustration and mounted to the filter assembly (item 18). You can purchase these appliance fuses at any hardware store as long as they are rated the same (20 AMP). CAUTION: Please ensure you UNPLUG the unit before servcing any internal components. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need additional assistance, please let me know.

Fuse


I'm confused! You say you cannot read? OR, You cannot read the fuse. Remember on fuses, voltage rating is as important as amps. What is the make and model? is there a diagram of the wiring inside? get someone to read the amps (fuse) to you.
Note: Most common is a 15amp (for M/W Oven). Can be purchased at most Hardware Stores.
CAUTION!! Do not over-rate or under-rate the fuse. If it blows with the correct fuse in it Do Not put in a higher amperage fuse!! Can everyone say FIRE!!
