Some machines do have fuses in them asko, bosch, etc. usually at the back in the right hand or left top. what make is it ? if fuses are present, you'll need to twist them out by quarter turns either with a small spade(flat) screw driver or the "fuse holder" will have grips to remove by hand. keep in mind, if they are blown fuses, it is a symptom of a greater problem, simply replacing the fuse may be futile. check the actual "fuse holder" and "hub" to insure they aren't "fatigued" causing resistence and fuses to blow.

good luck

Kenmore Washer won't power on 796.4002


Could be one of the following problems;

  • Power cord is not properly plugged in. (Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a grounded, 3-prong, 120-VAC, 60-Hz. outlet.)
  • House fuse is blown, circuit breaker has tripped, or power outage has occured. (Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase fuse capacity. If the problem is a circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified electrician.)

GE Profile Harmony washer won't power up and trips gfi


Did you replace the inverter board?? It is inside the tan plastic box in the bottom of the control panel I think on the right side. That controls the power supply to a good part of the machine and drive system. Has to be a direct short somewhere to trip the breaker.

47081 NO POWER


Check the breaker to the outlet that the machine plugs into first. If that dosen't work you may have a bad motor controller board or on some washers there is a fuse in between the power to the board and the board cricuitry proper. If it's the breaker to the outlet reset it, or replace the fuse if there is one, if not that replace the motor controller cricuit board. Also check underneath the machine because a small leak can also cause a short.

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

Where is the reset button. Our washer won't go on. It has no power at all.Tried the circuit breaker..Machine was here when we bought the house


Thanks for choosing FixYa Karen and welcome. You can unplug the washer for 30 minutes and plug it back up to reset the washer. Make sure the outlet works. Next, check your power cord. Wigglle it while plugged in to see if the power comes on. Inspect the cord first for damage before you do that. If the outlet, breaker, and cord is good, you need to check the fuse to the washer. If it still has no power, you may have a bad control board. Due to the fact there is no power, it is probably electrical. Inspect all wires in the washer for damage. You may need a voltage meter to test for power in the cicuits.

Our Magic Comfort plus is 4 years old and it keeps blowing the gfi instantly when I plug it in. I have had this problem occassionally in the past and it resolves after one or two gfi trips. Now if tripo...


The problem believe it or not your gfi is warn out. I am actually surprised it lasted as long as it has and surprised it worked at all. Espresso machines use a huge amount of power when turning on compared to maintaining power. When espresso machines first turn on the take a huge surge of power to start heating up the elements. Normally you want to put an espresso on a circuit /outlet that is directly to your breaker that is at least a 20 amp breaker. By code kitchens and bathrooms, where an outlet is near water, has to have a gfi outlet, this is for safety for something plugged in near water so it will trip if accident happens with appliance near water. The bad news there not to good with high demand power appliances such as espresso machines. Yes , you can replace the gfi circuit, by turning off main breaker, unscrew gfi from wall, pull out, and undo wires, and copy exactly when re-wiring the new one. Then turn on main breaker again. NOTE: you can buy a gfi all most any home improvement center, lowers, home depot, ace hardware etc.... Think of a gfi kind of like a advanced in line fuse, they do wear out. BUT AGAIN, my advice is plug it in a outlet that does not have gfi and is on a main breaker of at least 20 amps if you have that opportunity to do in your kitchen area. Hope this helps you, thank you....... MIKE

Lead display is keep on flashing up on start sequence


Have you tried checking the fuse or the circuit breaker? Are both the washer and dryersharing the same two outlet duplex outlet or are they on two totally separate outlets? Just to eliminate/isolate the outlet question after you check the circuit breakers or fuses in your fuse box, try plugging the dryer into a separate outlet. If like many people you do not have an extra outlet in your laundry area, try plugging another item into the dryer outlet to check it for power. This is if you are talking about a gas dryer that works on a 120-volt electrical outlet. If it is an electric dryer it will be on a 230-240 volt outlet with a special plug. If you have an old circuit panel that is still using fuses as opposed to modern circuit breakers and if this Is an electric dryer, you would have a 240 volt disconnect plug more than likely inside the panel and if you firmly grab the handle and yank it straight out, you will see that the disconnect plug will have two short cigar shaped Buss Fuses in it. If this is the case one or more of those fuses could be blown. Depending on the electrical requirements of the dryer those two fuses amy need to be between 20-30Amp rated. or else if you have the manual take a look in it , perhaps one of the fuses is gone .

Washing machine wont spin


Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.
