Look closely inside the control/heater box, is a PC board (printed circuit) board. Look for signs of "frost" corrosion around the bottom of the board. if you see this the board must be replaced.

Unit quit in the middle of a cycle and won't power up, totally dead. Is there a suspect noise filter or fuse I should begin looking for?

Make sure your circuit breaker in the main breaker box has not tripped, or "poped". It will be one a little out of place and a bit loose if it has tripped. Turn it off and back on to reset. If it tripps immediately, you have a short somewhere, possibly in the dishwasher, so you will need an electrician and or Appliance tec. to find and fix.

Frigidaire Dehumidifier Tripps the Circuit Breaker after few min. running...

Sounds like your outlet is rated at 15 amps (is wired to a 15 amp circuit breaker) which is too small to run a humidifier. Most humidifiers pull 20 amps. You can check this by looking at the back panel, it will tell you how many amps it pulls or possibly how many watts.If it lists only the wattage divide the voltage by the wattage, it will give you the amps. If you have an outlet which is rated for 20 amp (usually in the kitchen or laundry room) and plug in there. If it runs you will know your problem. If this is the case be glad that the circuit breaker is working, my neighbors house caught on fire from a defective outlet that a humidifier was plugged into.Good luck, sl

Our rv dometic rm 0730 refrigerator tripps the breaker everytime we plug it in, and it has been plugged into three different outlet.

Wondering if I mounted the flame cutoff sensor in the correct way. Does it mount onto the side of the burner unit? The dryer is now working but seems to be running hot.

The cutoff switch don't control the heat. Just tripps if the dryer overheats. The heat is judged by this cycling thermostatlthemobilian_2742.jpg

Is this a new install or is this something that has just come up? If it is a new install, the amperage on the breaker is too low. You will have to call an electrician to come in and check to see if the romex wire is large enough to handle a higher amp breaker. If not, it could be that the breaker has become weak and tripps prematurely. If it's not the breaker its self then the heating element is bad on the unit.
