Try to unplug it and plug it back in. A lot of times that will reset the board. It may have fried the start relay on the compressor. I have no idea what fridge you have so it's hard to say.

Power surge brand new maytag fridge not cooling


That power surge probably burnt out the guse on the circuit board. I suspect you may need a new board unless you know an electricity geek who can replace the fuse. New I would check your warranty. That circuit board might cost $200. plus..

Loud pop from surge protector that results in intermittent sound on Samsung 46" tv


I hope the surge protector is separate from your TV. It has Varistors in it that are supposed to pass overvoltage surges (it can happen without the power going out) then recover to normal. But sometimes they overheat, then they can become a fire hazard. Or the contacts in the sockets can get charred and flakey. Anyway sounds like it is fried, the only easy solution is replace it. A careful tinkerer with a good scrounge box could fix it, if you know anybody like that.

2 years ago I purchased a Boston micro-system cd /clock radio. It has worked fine but now it shows a slight light when I plug it it to a a power outlet but I try to activate them there is no response...


Thank you for your question.

There is a good chance that this radio got a power surge which may have been caused by the power going out and then when it comes back on, there is a surge. In some cases, a "brown out" does more damage than a surge.

For example, if a telephone pole fell over and the power lines were arcing in your neighborhood, your lights may flicker for several minutes. This can damage many electronic items in your home.

If this clock has a battery backup, try removing the battery and replace it.

If there is no response, you may want to take it to an independent electronics repair person and have him check the power circuit.

Chances are that the circuit board behind the ac power cord will be damaged.

Their was a blackout in my neighborhood. The next day in the morning i tried to turn on my 50inch HP Plasma and it made a loud popping sound. The volume on the tv still works.


Hello.
You probably did not have that tv plugged into a surge protector. When the power was restored, a surge came through the line. A power surge is a spike in voltage above the maximum a tv, appliance etc. can handle of 169 volts. They are very brief, usually lasting millinths of a second. Power surges can vary in duration and magnitude, varying from a few hundred volts to several thousand volts.

That said, now what do you do. If the tv is under 3 years old I recommend that you take it into a local TV repair shop for a free estimate of repair. If it is older than that, I would not repair, just replace. J.

Power surge caused wine cooler to quit cooling


Power surges, spike and brown-outs are a nemesis to small refrigeration units. The capacitor for the compressor likey was affected and possibly the start components in general, especially if the unit was operating when the surge occured.

My unit is in stand by but will not power on


Disconnect the main power to the receiver and let it set for 15 minutes or so, this will allow the capacitors to discharge fully. If the receiver did not suffer transformer damage, it should turn back on. If you don't have a good surge protection unit with line conditioning like Panamax or Furman, get one! It will save you $$$ in the long run. Hope this helps.

Preventing damage


Yes, check how much power your fridge uses i.e. AMPS/WATTS etc then get a surge protecter that can cope with that load. If you buy a guarenteed one and your fridge gets damaged, you will be able to claim.
