1999 Deville - interior lights went off. Fuse brown.

1999 Cadillac Deville - interior lights went off. I checked the fuse and found the one for interior lights was brown. I bought a pack of new fuse. Insert one, with a lightly click sound, it is brown again. I guess, must be a short.

Can anybody points a best place to start diagnose?

Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Checked. All 4 cigarette lighters are normal and working. They share the same inadvert relay with interior lights but use different fuse. The cigarette light fuse 1 and 2 are normal. The interior light fuse is brown.

Because of the noise it sounds like a motor problem! The fuse is in the mains plug and is easily replaced!

I have a 990 Prisma Viking sewing machine (like new) that was just plugged in for the first time in many years. The light went on and then out and I heard a pop sound. Now it doesn't seem to be getting...

FIRST to try is any fuse fitted - they often make a pop sound when they blow!

Look in the plug (depends on country) and then check the machine for a fused cover - usually circular.

Ifs it hasn't been used for a while bits can stick and then the mottor tries hard to move it and pop - the fuse blows.

Give it a try

What is the blue wire for:; Is it positive or negative please what is the brown wire for: Is it positive or negative and is the yellow and green the...

Blue = Neutral, Brown = Live and you are correct Yellow & Green = Earth
The live wire (brown) must be connected to the fuse if there is one.
You could say that the blue wire is negative (or zero) and the brown wire is positive as this is the one the high current passes through. The blue wire completes the circuit, which is needed for current to flow.
Hope this helps!

When I turned on my viking 980, the power went on for a moment and then went completely dead. Checked that outlet has power, all connections are made securely.

More than likely it blew the fuse in the transformer, although it is fairly easy to replace this fuse it is important to find out why it blew. The transformer is under the machine and held in place by 4 screws. Take this out and ease the transformer out, it will still be hooked to the connecting wires just gently disconected them. Once you open the transformer you will see a small fuse, you can take it to radio shack and get an EXACT replacement.

Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 just stopped working!

There is a fuse in the the base plate that has blown. It is soldered in and is special fuse you won't find at Radio Shack. Unfortunatly it needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff).
Sorry for the bad news and best of luck.
