I have a 50in lg how do i check the fuses

With a multi meter, put the meter on ohms x1 unless its an auto range then you don't have to do anything but set it to ohms and put the meter across both sides of the fuse and the meter should go to 0 if the fuse is good

Ge true temp burner won't turn off

Hello Kathy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number so I can only advise you in general terms.

Each of your burners has a individual control. These controls are not all the same. They are different for each burner.
25396960-azn3vdefrt5enyqdbzatir1e-3-0.jpg This item is about $42.00 USD.

1.) Turn Power of to the range at the breaker box.
2.) Remove the screws holding the backing plate on the top control panel. Disconnect the two wires going to the burner control. Individually wrap the wire ends with electrical tape.
3.) With a multi-meter - Set the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol. On the control put one meter lead on one contact and the other lead on the other contact. You should get a reading of "0" Ohms if it is good, anything else the control is bad.

My Electrolux Dual fuel range Model # EW30DS65GS has a serious problem! The temp in the main oven keeps rising until alarm goes off over 550 degrees!I have replaced the temp sensor as well as the rela

Hello Limeygary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your unit has so many electrical controls and components. In the future remember simple is better and more reliable.

First, your control boards. You have two control boards in your unit. In this case you should have a surge protector for all of your appliances with control boards. You can purchase a single socket surge protector for about $25.00 USD.

When you changed out the one board did you ground yourself by touching something that is bare metal? Static electricity will knock out a control board. You may have a power supply problem where the slightest change may knock out a board. This is why a surge protector is critical.

I had one customer that I had to replace the main control board 3 times in 18 months.

Ok, lets assume the boards are good and you have no shorts.

Lets check the oven wall thermal switch.

This switch is in the upper right corner of your oven back wall.
Disconnect the two leads to the switch. With your multi-meter, set it to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). While depressing the red button, place one meter lead on one contact and the other meter lead on the other contact. You should get a reading of "0" Ohms if the switch is good, otherwise it is bad.

You have two separate motors. These motors may be locked in to continuous run.
On this motor, located under the top cover, under a small removable plate. It has a black contact switch. Remove the two electrical contactors. Using your multi-meter as described above, hold in the contact button. Your Ohms should be "0". The metal contacts may be fused.

This is located in the upper back section of you unit. It has a transformer. disconnect the two wire leads and Ohm them out to "0".

Remember, You still may have a control board problem. Ground yourself and check for burn marks or melted connections.

Hello Miguel;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are two electrical components that will cause this problem. The most probable cause is the burner element. Each of your burner elements have a independent temperature sensor. The sensor controls the burner element temperature.
Substitution Part Number: 4453909 Cost: $85.00

This surface element (part number 4453909) is for electric ranges, including Whirlpool electric range model GJC3034RB00.
Unplug the range or shut off the house circuit breakers to disconnect electrical power to the range before replacing the surface element. Wear gloves to protect your hands when replacing surface element on your electric range.
This is a manufacturer substitution. Part may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to priorparts including 9759351.

PART NUMBER: 8523698 Cost: $71.00

The other less likely electrical component is Surface Element Control Switch. Each burner has a independent control switch.

Cost: $46.00

To check the switch: Remove the switch 2 contacts on the left. With a multi-meter, set the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). Put one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other contact. If the switch is good you meter will read "0" Ohms.

I have a 2008 Ford Ranger with a good battery, good connections, good alternator, etc. I have been trying to,figure out why the battery is draining overnight only. This happened twice and both times

Switch your Digital Multi meter to DC AMPs. Amps is usually indicated by an "A" on the Multi meter Switch. AC is usually shown as a "~" symbol and DC shown as a "-" symbol. You usually have to move the multi meter positive lead to a separate socket on the multi meter to check for amps. Sometimes there are 2 sockets, (a high range and a low range). Always test on the highest setting first. For example: High setting on your multi meter may be 10 Amp. Test on the 10 Amp setting first, then if the current drawn is less than your Multi meter's (low setting) move to that setting and keep testing. For example: On my multi meter the low setting is 0.3 Amps. Also indicated as 300mA (mA x 1000 = A).

Remove the battery's positive cable.

Connect the multi meter's positive probe to the battery's positive post while simultaneously holding the negative probe from the multi meter up in the air, to keep it away from anything metallic.

Place the negative probe of the multi meter on the end of the removed positive cable to complete the circuit.

That's right, you're putting a negative on a positive, but its ok, because if the drain is severe enough, you're most likely to blow a fuse or two, which will identify the problem area.

Above I said to remove the positive battery cable because that is the way I do it. You can do the same test with the negative battery cable removed. In fact for you that may be a better way to do the test, because there would be no way for any electrical issues to occur by accidently grounding the negative probe from the multi meter. i hope you understand what I'm saying here.

My 2008 rmz 450 kick starts no problem then about 5 seconds later it immediately dies, like you hit the kill switch...just started this yesterday any help will be greatly appreciated

try simple option first like change the spark plug as plugs can fail under load and cause this? if no improvement then I would get a multi meter and test resistance readings on your stator connection leads and also check resistance on your ignition coil pack - Your service manual will have the range of in spec readings for you to check against
This symptom sounds almost guaranteed to be electrical fault - best case new spark plug or worse case new stator or ignition coil required any auto ranging OHMS meter will give you enough information to know if stator needs replacing as your readings will be way out of spec on one or all of the sources
good luck regards Jamie

I have a Porter Cable BSV750 generator with no electrical output. How do I test the capacitor?

You need an multi meter, on the ohms scale. Short the two prongs on the cap out, removing any voltage on it. Put your meter to a mid range ohms scale. Touch the leads to the prongs on cap and watch your meter. It should start climbing in value and then go to 'OL' if it's digital. If it's an analog meter(with a needle) it will go all the way over to 'infinite. This means it's good.
If it's bad, it will just read 'OL' or go right to 'zero' meaning it's either shorted or open.

My Maytag Electric Range oven part will not heat over 200* ......

Unplug the range.
Open the oven door.
Remove the racks.
Remove the 2 screws holding the bake element to the rear wall of the range.
Carefully pull the element from the access holes in the rear wall.
Remove the wires from the element.
With your meter set for continuity, put one lead on each element end.
If you get a reading it is good.

If it is good. Replace the wires and reinstall the element.

Pull the range out from the wall.
Remove the rear panels.
Plug the range back in.
Set your meter for 220volts or more.
Careful now because you are working with live voltage.
Set the oven for bake.
Put a lead on each element terminal to check voltage.
If you have 220 volts at the element, unplug the range and unplug the temperature sensor.
Set your meter for ohms.
Check the 2 leads on the temp sensor.
If at room temp the sensor is 1050 - 1100 it is OK. If not replace it.
If the temp sensor checks out OK, replace the ERC
