Not sure about a reset switch on it but I can tell you that a dryer not heating is usually either because of a bad heating element, or a bad temp fuse. You can get both parts from an appliance repair shop if you have the model number from the machine and they are fairly easy to replace. Also a pro repairman can do it for a little more cash.

My top loading Kenmore Series 80 top loading washing will not run. When I noticed the motor would not engage agitation, I checked the circuit breaker and found that it had switched off. Turned breaker...


I would use a voltmeter and test the power to the motor. If there is power, then motor is faulty. If motor spins but not agitator then ****** could be bad. If no power to the motor, then a fuse or main circuit capacitor may be bad but testing with a manual and multi-tester meter will be needed to test for the failed componenent

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Hi, I have a Rheem water tankless heater and there was a storm lastnight so suddendly I have no hot water. What can It be?


1) All tankless water heaters require voltage to operate electronic sensors and circuit board.
This is true for gas and electric tankless.

2) Check that circuit breaker is not tripped. Push circuit breaker all the way one direction and then all the way back other direction.

3) There are fuses located inside the tankless unit, so check your manual for location of each fuse.
Manual is filled with useful maintenance and troubleshooting steps.

4) Before calling service technician, open following link for troubleshoot resources including manuals, Rheem on-line chat, and useful links for maintaining tankless water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

5) If you had nearby lightning strike, I don't know if your tankless is protected from surge.
I recommend whole-house surge protector for tank and tankless water heater electronics, and household circuits. Surge protection is installed in main breaker box, and is replaced after each surge event. Separate protection needed for co-ax TV satellite, co-ax surge protection can be found on some ordinary power strips.

I have a kenmore dryer 80 series it only makes a lite sound when I push the start button. I won't come on. The power is good.


The Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer, however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before contacting a technician.

  1. Kenmore 80 Series dryers may not run for several reasons. First, make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. You may need to plug a different device into the outlet to check that it is receiving power. If the second device does not run on the power outlet, you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse box or circuit breaker box and make the change as needed.
    Next, make sure that the dryer door is fully shut. The dryer will not run with the door ajar.
    Finally, check that the "Start" button was fully pressed and that a cycle was chosen on the machine. If you do not choose a cycle for the dryer, it will not run.
  2. If your Kenmore 80 Series dryer does not heat up during use, check that a heat cycle has been chosen for the load. There are several different dryer cycles you can choose, some of which do not use heat. Make sure that you have chosen a heated cycle.
    As above, check that you have not blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. The dryer may use more than one fuse or breaker: one is used to power the drum, and the other for the heating element. Make sure that both fuses or breakers are in working order.
  3. There may be times when Kenmore Series 80 dryers do not fully dry your clothes. When this occurs, check the lint screen and clear out any lint. The air may not flow as well if the lint screen is clogged.
    Next, check to see if the exhaust vent is clogged. Lint and other particles may clog the exhaust vent over time, restricting air flow and making it more difficult to dry your clothes. To check the vent, run the dryer and hold your hand under the vent. If you do not feel any air flow, clean or replace the vent.
    If you used cold water to rinse the clothes it may take longer than normal to dry. The same is true if the load of laundry is very wet or is filled with items that are very absorbent.
    Finally, check the load size. The more clothes in the load the longer it will take to dry. If you want to reduce drying time, separate the clothes into piles of light and heavy items and dry them separately.
  4. please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.

Have a 2004 taurus.no owners manual. cig lighter fuse blew,dont know which one it is.


Fuses, Switches, Circuit Breakers And Relays Most vehicles use one or more fuse panels. This one is located on the driver’s side kick panel tcca6p01.jpg

It is possible for large surges of current to pass through the electrical system of your vehicle. If this surge of current were to reach the load in the circuit, this surge could burn it out or cause severe damage to the vehicle’s electrical system. It can overload the wiring, causing the harness to get hot and melt the insulation. To protect vehicle wiring, fuses, circuit breakers and/or fusible links are typically installed into the power supply wires throughout the electrical system. These items are nothing more than a built-in weak spot in the system. When an excessive amount of current flows through a circuit it causes an increase in heat throughout the wiring. Fuses and circuit breakers are designed as the weak link in the system and will disconnect the circuit to prevent damage to the components contained within that circuit. Components are equipped with connectors so they may be replaced in situations where they were damaged due to a power surge.
The following are descriptions as to how fuses and circuit breakers protect the electrical system:
  • Fuse- A fuse is a weak link in the system designed to create an open circuit when the amperage flowing through that circuit exceeds the limits of the fuse. As the amperage increases, the conductor within the fuse heats up and eventually melts and breaks apart. This open circuit interrupts the flow of current and protects the components in the circuit.
  • Circuit Breaker- A circuit breaker is a "self-repairing" fuse. It will open the circuit in the same fashion as a fuse. The surge creates heat the same way that a fuse is affected. When the surge subsides and the circuit cools down, the circuit breaker will reset and allow current to flow through the circuit. Typically circuit breakers do not need to be replaced.
  • Fusible Link- A fusible link (fuse link or main link) is a short length of special, high temperature insulated wire that acts as a fuse. When an excessive electrical current passes through a fusible link, the thin gauge wire inside the link melts, creating an open to protect the circuit. To repair the circuit, the link must be replaced. Some newer type fusible links are housed in plug-in modules, which are simply replaced like a fuse, while older type fusible links must be cut and spliced if they melt
CAUTION
Always replace fuses, circuit breakers and fusible links with identically rated components. Under no circumstances should a protection device of higher or lower amperage rating be substituted.
---
I would get a fuse tester that can test fuses while still installed and powered up. It will light if the fuse is blown when applied to the two tabs that are exposed on fuses that are installed in your Ford product.

Check the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side, and check to see if there are any fuses under the hood.

If you don't have the tool, try to look for stickers or download the manual from ford.com.

I have a 80 gallon Ge smartwater hot water heater model # SE80T .can a burned out heating element in the water heater cause a circuit breaker to overheat? Thanks


I know an element can cause the breaker to trip. But I dont know about over heating. That sounds like a wiring issue. I would contact an electrician. Hope this helps.

Normally no, but for a circuit breaker to activate, there has to be excessive current draw somewhere. Is the circuit breaker exclusive to the water heater? If it is then the heating element may have shoirted internaly. Fit a new element and restest. Don't forget to check the condition of your sacrifical annode too.

My roper electric dryer heats when running for 5 mins. then trips circuit breaker


May not be your dryer. Many times a loose wire at the circuit breaker panel will cause the breaker to get hot and then thermal trip the breaker. It may be worth a look. Remove circuit breaker panel. Turn dryer breaker off. Check wire lug screws for being loose. Make sure screws or snug but do not tighten and strip the threads. Be especially careful if the wire/cable is silvery aluminum colored. If that is the case make sure there are not any broken strands at the breaker lugs. If possible use a clamp on amp meter to check the operating current. The current should not exceed 80 percent of your breaker rating. It is most likely a 30 Amp 2 pole. You may also have a bad breaker. If a breaker has a weak spring or bad contacts it will easily get hot under load and trip. My best guess other than a dryer motor locking up or dragging. New breakers are inexpensive at HD or Lowes etc. Be sure to get the exact brand and model if replacing.
