Frigidaire clothes dryer struck by lightning

Lightning struck close to my house causing many small things to not work. My washing machine still works; however, my dryer doesn't turn on at all. We've unplugged the dryer and now in limbo as to what to do or what to look at next. I hate to just go out and buy a new dryer if it's something maybe like the chord -- how do we figure out what is wrong so we can determine if we need to buy a new one?

First thing you need to do is determine that it is the dryer. we had a similar problem and it turned out to be the connections in the dryer plug. you should have 2 prongs in the plug with 120volts and one hole with no voltage.

tried to reset the tv first, if struck by lightning the tuner will be damaged or the main board but since the tv is still working so i think not the lightning was the main cause.

How do I trouble shoot a tv struck by lightening ?


That is a tricky question, lightning can cause minor to severe damage. If the TV is completely dead, the power supply board will be the first order of things to check, if fuse is open chances are there will be damaged parts and open foil. If fuse blows, board replacement would be the next step, however the risk is will it work, lightning may take 1to 3 boards for example and the unfortuneate thing is you must sub boards until it works.

Nothing works.


Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

Frigidaire side-by-side stopped working


I would chech the components on the compressor. Take the cover off the compressor power terminals and inspect the relay for damage.The power outage is not a concern but the power surge could definately be the cause. hope this helps.

TV won't turn on


It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
It could just be an expired TV.

Lightning struck outside our house last night. Air does not work. Unit outside does but the thermostat smelled like the wires were melting. Husband got a new thermostat but we can't get the unit to come...


lightning is in KVolt range, the exterior unit is most likely damaged at the low voltage cables to the thermostat, melted out, should get a sparky in to trace the lowV lines, and check out the unit, lightning is not forgiving
