Question about Sherwood RVD-6090R

1 Answer

RVD 6090R Stopped working after a very brief power outage.

My electricity went out for a few seconds. Now my receiver goes on, but is not recognizing any speakers and no sound. I plugged it into an alternate socket, I checked all my audio cables and speaker cables. I unplugged it for over an hour to revert to manufacturer settings. Checked the tv and cable settings, but no go.
Is it gone for good or is there hope.
Appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks much

    Hi Robotek,
    I am very grateful for your advice. I do think it is a fuse. I am very good at connecting electronics, but have never gone inside of one. Is it worth investing in the ohm meter and the fuses or to buy a new one. I dont have much money. Can only really go to $100. Where would I get the fuses or can you recommend another new or good used home threater receiver with a coaxial connection. (need for divx machine). Another Sherwood (under 100 at Radio Shack)
    Very grateful for your time and help.

Hi cleitner . It has most likely blown a mains power fuse. You will need to FIRST DISCONNECT FROM THE POWER. Then remove the lid and check internal fuses. Best done with an ohms meter to be sure that you don't miss any. Some fuses can look ok but be faulty. Replace any blown fuses with one of exactly the same type. If you are not sure what type of fuse you need, feel free to get back to me here. Good Luck, thanks for using FixYa

    Hi again, I should say that you could check for any blown fuses before doing anything else, they are often very obviously blown, just suggested the meter to be sure they are good... as I have in the past come across fuses that look good and are actually faulty. Go for it, pop the lid off and check them out. If you replace a fuse and it blows again...then that is a more involved repair. I am hoping in your case a blown fuse is all it is. Good luck, a FixYa rating would be great for my advice:) Feel free to ask me more questions.

Refrigarator not working after power outage

When power goes on and off suddenly, it can cause the compressor to overload and "trip out" This is supposed to protect the compressor from being electrically damaged. In most cases, after 10 or 15 minutes, the compressor will reset. It is usually safer to switch off the fridge or unplug it for 10 to 15 minutes to ensure a full reset. If it doesn't start, the power surge may have damaged the compressor relay. or overload device on the side of the compressor. I would doubt that it damaged the compressor itself. Be aware of the relay and overload device, unfortunately, there are Techs who will quote for a compressor job when all it needs is a relay or overload.

Runs but will not heat. Power outages in area over last few weeks.

If the dryer was running during an outage, even with a very brief flash there usually is a power surge when it comes back on. If everything else seems to work okay it's possible that the heating elements got fried. You can check them with a voltmeter. Also check to seek if the dryer has overlaod protection. Most have a reset. One other thing that could happen, the breaker is defective. That you can check at the back of the dryer where the plug cable attaches to the dryer.

We had a brief, about 5 seconds, power outage now our Intertherm electric furnace is turning on and off repeatedly. The temp was set at 65 and I turned it down to about 60 and it has stopped. Could that...

Hi, is this furnace a free standing unit or a full size electric heater? You can try turning off the main power to this heater for 5 or so minutes and back on again. You may have lost a internal stat of some kind. Try what I said and if nothing changes, send me the model and serial number so I can check into this further. If it stopped at 60, it should be alright at 65. The thermostat may have burned out. I don't know this yet but let me know what happens.
