    Mine does the same thing today. No lights or power. I hope that it is not finished, and after only 12 months old!. I'm very disappointed in Braun and Kraft.

    No lights - pump working but not drawing water - bummer!

    I'm having the same problem again! This is my second machine in 16 months... The first time it happened I wasn't even using it, I was in my family room with my sons and all of a sudden the machine started up on its own without a T-disc inside and started making all of this steam and gurgling sounds and all the lights started flashing -- it really freaked me out. Then it totally stopped and all the lights went out and I tried turning it on and off, I tried pushing the GFC button on the outlet it's plugged into, nothing worked. Luckily, I was able to return it to the store where me and my husband purchased it and I got another one. Now the new one has given up the ghost! If I didn't have a bunch of unused T-discs I really don't think I'd get another one. I'm taking this one back too. My husband said he thinks it's the motor/compressor/steam unit that keeps going out. Braun needs to find a better source for the inner workings of this machine. I love the convenience but when it keeps breaking it's totally inconvenient...

    Ive always had problems with the Starbucks T-Discs. This time I put one in and started the machine. It started fine then started to squeel loudly like an old tea pot then nothing. It seems to be getting no power at all. I unplugged for a day and still nothing. Please help. Ive got like $30 in T-Discs that are useless to me now.

Usually when there are no lights, the AC was cut by one of the thermal fuses on the side of the water heater. One has black wires, the other has white wires. You cannot locate replacement fuses anywhere! They were custom built for Saeco (Braun). If you want, you can buy them at a 1000 qty. I pried off the aluminum cap of the thermal fuses using jewelers screwdrivers. Being careful not to change the face shape. I took the metal disc under the cap off and popped it back in opposite direction. I replaced the metal disk (BE SURE THE INSULATOR UNDER THE DISK IS PUT BACK IN, IT INSULATES THE VOLTAGE). I replaced the aluminum top, crimp two edges to hold. Then checked to be sure none of the terminals were conductive to the aluminum face.

These fuses are similar in construction to resettable thermal breakers, but the metal strap in the coffee maker does not allow room for the reset button.

My set is plugged into a cable box. the tv will not turn on either manually or with the remote.

Plug the power cord directly into a wall power outlet, and make sure that the standby light is lit (turn it on/off manually to see if anything changes). If there isn't any light, then it's most likely broken.
If the TV works again, being plugged into the power outlet in the wall, then the problem is with the cable box (i bet you figured that out too).

Sunbeam 4267-000 not turning on just blinking red

"FF" or a blinking light will display meaning “Fault Found”. The “fault” is in the amount of power available to the blanket, mattress pad or throw.
There are several causes to this problem:
1. Bedding product is plugged into an extension cord, surge protector, power strip, or not plugged into a direct wall outlet.
2. Bedding product wasn't plugged in properly.

To FIX this problem, do the following to reset your bedding product:
1. Unplug the power cord from the electrical connection.
2. Unplug the cord from the actual bedding product itself.
3. Re-plug the cord into the bedding product. Make sure the connection is secure and complete.
4. Re-insert power cord back into a wall outlet.

If the 4 steps above are not followed in order, the bedding product will not properly reset.

Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door Opener

The tempatures in the morning have been cool, about 40F and an hour later slightly warmer, maybe 45-50F. Thanks for the suggestion and I am going to have the cale checked for shorts or opens. The opener is direct wired to the breaker, so no outlet is involved. The morning have been cooler since my original post and have not seen the problem again. Maybe its Grimlins? I'll update if anything wrong is found. Thanks!

Intertel phone system died

Look for power on the InterTel system, any kind of lights on the system is an indication you at least have power to the system. If you are plugged into a power strip and have no lights, remove the power cord from the strip and plug it directly into an AC outlet. Be sure to turn off the system before plugging it into a wall outlet, and then turn the system back on. Good Luck

Fisher & Paykel smart drive - all the lights come on!

It has put itself into the display mode (used in shop displays) Try turning power off and unplug from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes. Plug back in and see if it has come back to normal. If not then either the display board or the main board will need to be replaced. Get a service tech out to check which one is faulty.
