TV will not turn on

We were flipping breakers to find the one our stove was connected on, and our TV was turned off at the time. It has never given us a moment of trouble before, however, now it will not turn on at all. The front buttons won't work; the remote won't turn it on. We've put new batteries in the remote; unplugged the TV for several days even before plugging it back in. We tried every trick in the RCA User's Guide under "TV Won't Turn On." Nothing. It's a P32649.

Your beloved TV is dead. However, don't panic. Take your TV to a good (reputable) repair shop. They will most liekly get it working again. Such repairs cost around US$50-60 (in my shop anyhow).

Assuming you are absolutely sure the TV is getting power,
If you have an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the two prongs on its plug. If no conductivity (over 1 meg Ohm) the fuse inside is popped. Take the cover off, look in the area near the power cord, it is the usual 5AG type (glass cylinder) fuse. If you replace it and it pops again then measure all the diodes in the rectifier circuit (near the fuse).
Many times power transients will just blow these input power devices. However, many times it will go much deeper and get the TV's processor brain. If the TV is anywhere near 10 years old, I wouldn't go any deeper than the input power circuit.

Check the breaker for your kitchen even if it isn't flipped, flip it off and on again.. I had the same problem it turned out that my dryer and stove were on the same breaker, so I couldn't run them both at the same time.

When our family returned from out of town, we had no heat. I plugged in a small space heater close to the stove to help heat the kitchen. A bit later, I started to make toast and a breaker flipped. Flipped...

Power must be reaching the stove for the lights to work so it would seem something has gone wrong inside the stove. Only exposing the internal connections and testing the circuits will trace the fault.

We were pre heating the oven and we noticed it was off when we checked on it the breaker keeps tripping as soon as you try to turn it back on my wife said she saw a bright spark from behind the stove when...

First I would turn the breaker off. If you can pull the stove out and find where the cord connects to the oven. Check the connections. If a breaker is tripping as you try to reset it, that means there is a direct short from hot to neutral line. If the connections are good and not burnt... you want to check to see that the elements are in good condition and not melted. Check where the wires connect to the elements. Many times this is where a short occurs. The spark your wife saw should show signs somewhere. Look for a scorch mark.

Am making my Thanksgiving dinner today. The oven went out about an hour ago. When I flip the circuit breaker on, it goes off. If the stove is unplugged, the circuit breaker stays on. Help!

one of the burners is blown turn breaker off and remove top heater element then turn on breaker, does it stay on? if yes you found your problem burned out element that is shorting. pull one at a time till it stops resetting the breaker, be aware resetting the breaker more than 10 times considers they breaker not reliable but have personally not have had a problem unless it was 20 years or older.

you mean anything you turn on trips the breaker or just certain items,if so remove rear cover after unplugging unit or shutting off breaker, and look for what is called a m.o.v.(metal oxide varistor) its in there in case of a surge from lightning and has probably shorted(check w/ohmmeter) it protects the electronics side 120volt,but will drop out both legs of power on a tandem pole 120/120 volt breaker because of the way breaker is designed

Stove keeps tripping fuse

when turning on stove, the current inrush is too great for the breaker. you need to look at the data plate on stove first to see if the current (amp) usage is greater than your breaker. If not, then you may have a faulty element or control

Electric stove top and oven

if neither the cooktop nor the oven works check your voltage. Is there 240 volts to the unit. Flip the breaker off and back on. If that doesn't work, with the unit unplugged, remove the cover where the stove cord is connected and check the connections
Good Luck!!!

PF on Whirlpool super capacity 465 electric Stove Model RF366PXGW2

PF = Power Failure. Sounds like you have a bad electrical connection. With your breaker off, check that the connections from the cord to the range are all good and tight. Next, check the receptacle where the cord plugs in. Remove the cover and check the connections there as well. Examine the power cord also. There could even be a poor connection at the breaker box (at the circuit breaker or the neutral buss bar) but not as likely, as your problem appeared when you moved your range.
