Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

My fridge just stopped working this morning. Whenever I turn on the power the safety switch (fuse panel) trips off. How can I fix the problem by myself? I have cleaned up all the dust at the back and unloaded all the stuffs out.

I'm sorry but I think this is bad news for you. This is not something that you can fix yourself. The compressor is probably bad and is siezed up. This causes a high pull of power when is tries to start and cannot. This trips your breaker. Depending on the age of your refrigerator you may be better off buying a new than trying to fix this. Is it possibly under warranty still?? Get an estimate before you sink too much money into an older refrigerator.

Fisher & paykel fridge e521t no power to fridge,not any power coming to fridge


Did you try an other electrical outlet? Can you test the outlet has any voltage?
does the fridge have an on / off switch? I don't think so, so if nothing works also check the cable and the plug going in the outlet.

Dometic RM2652 was working fine then stopped - no lights at the control panel above the doors.


Usually there is a short in the system when fuse is blown. Check the cord as sometimes mouse can damage the cord. It is a posibility.
Check power to the electronic board.

I had a problem with our power this morning, the safety power switch kept turning off while I had a load on the washing machine. Now that the power is working properly, my washing machine is not working...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It could have been a developing fault in the washer which caused the safety power switch to trip and now it is permanently faulty.
Sorry but with such a fault it is extremely difficult for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, main motor, drain motor (my guess is the main motor)

I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My adp8540 has stopped working because my sister opened midcycle. Now it trips the circuit safety switch and if it does do anything else it blinks 6 times. Can it be fixed or do I jut need a new one?


Please remove off the main power supply and keep aside while pressing off the panel control. If the trip works, check if the motor is struck , release with manual action. Also check the motor, remove connection and see if the trip has changed. Also if there is any leak on the machine if the trip switch is a ELCB , which can trip with a ground/earth leak. If so check the outlet ground or use another plug point.

My fridge is tripping the power out in my house. do i need a new motor?


It might not be the motor, it could even be the door switch, but first unplug the fridge, disconnect the wires from the motor, insulate them, switch on and see if your house power trips out. If the house does not trip out it is the motor. It is still trips out, look at the wires to the switch and the light and also the thermostat. Good luck and remember to unplug the wall socket whenever checking any circuit.
