In the back of the display panel. remove the metal cover with the dryer UNPLUGGED.There is a booklet that tells you how to access the service mode by pressing 2 certain buttons at a time certain dryer functions can be accessed. One of the tests were to check the led lights on your control panel, when you run the test all the lights would light up. it's a possibility if you acess the service mode and run the led light check it could possibly reset it and solve your problem. It's a shot but it can't hurt. Getting into the service mode to test certain modes on your dryer is easy enough.Just read the instructions. Good luck.

In the power panel on your house. There are two circuit breakers with their handles joined.One of these breakers has tripped internally which will stop the heating elements but not the control panel or oven light since they work on 120 volts. Reset the breaker or replace it.
The first think you need to do is check the circuit breaker. If the breaker is off, turn it all the way off and then to the on position. If it trips off again, you have a short in the wire. DO NOT plug anything into the outlet. It is a 220 line and you can be seriously injured.
Another issue could be the circuit board is faulty and the machine will prevent itself from turning on. If the breaker is good and the machine still does not remain on, you will need to call a service technician for the dryer. Good Luck!!
If the Siemens 20Amp 1-pole arc-fault circuit breaker is wired correctly and there are no problems with the circuit that it is protecting, when first turning it to the ON position, the amber light will come on then go out after about 10 seconds or so.
If the breaker is wired incorrectly or there is a fault in the circuit the amber light will stay on.
The reason why the breaker stays tripped is a result of a direct short. Unplug every electrical device plugged into an outlet in both rooms and try the breaker. If it stays on, individually start plugging in each device until the breaker trips, that is the defective device. If the breaker stays tripped, start checking wall outlets for short circuits with an ohm meter. If you did not find a short, check your hard wired lamps and appliances for shorts. If you did not find any shorts the only other problem is a shorted pair of wires in the wall or ceiling. You will need to disconnect any hard wired lamps and appliances and check for shorts between individual pairs of hot (black) and neutral (white) then hot and ground. I have a short circuit finder, but you do not need one because the technology is not perfect and you may have to manually check for shorts with a meter anywaywhich never lies.
I assume you mean circuit breaker when you say fuse. If you reset the breaker to "on" and the lights still don't work, look for a GFI outlet somewhere in the circuit. It could be tripped which will shut off the current downstream from it if it is set up to guard the downstream circuit.
My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.
Hello, In order to reset circuit breakers that have tripped under load, you must first flip the breaker all the way OFF, before you can then turn the breaker back ON. This should reset the breaker to turn the power back on to the circuit supplied by this breaker.
The red indicator is just there to make it easier to find the tripped breaker. Typically, the red indicator flag is a special feature of Square D QD breakers and panels.
If the breaker immediately trips again and doesn't stay on, then the device it is providing power to, still has a fault and it needs to be looked at to determine what is causing the fault and the tripping of the breaker.
Be sure to turn the breaker OFF if you are going to check the device for potential problems.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw
It certainly seems like you got a large power surge. Something may have been fried on your oven control panel. The trouble is circuit breakers are meant to trip when there is an overload or short circuit situation. Good ones will also detect an earth leakage problem to save us humans from being electrocuted.
Unfortunately in general they are not surge protectors. That is they will not trip quick enough to save your appliances if 10 zillion volts suddenly comes down the wire.
I think you are going to need a service technician for this one.
