    The control timer will not power up when the door is closed, but the timer is energized when the door is held more firmly closed by hand. But...it sounds like the mechanical (?) timer gears are catching when the door is closed the additional amount needed to activate the door switch.

    Is the door switch adjustable on the Maytag MDB6000? If so where is it located and how is it accessed?

    Thanks

How do i fix dyson DC41 Animal vacuum upright cleaner it has burning smell coming from motor and it blew the fuse box when i WENT TO VACUUM. the wire flex is a bit over twisted


You most certainly shorted this out and will need a new cord. Easy fix but you will have to take it apart and find where it failed. I doubt the motor fried but it is possible. When you take it apart look for the burn mark left by the electrical arc. That is the point you fix.

No power. Will not turn on


It may have tripped the internal breaker, and or the house circuit breaker. Go tot the house fuse box and check that first.

I think I blew the fuse on the machine... heard a loud pop followed by the smell of something burnt... Please tell me this can be fixed...


If there was a bang and a burnt smell then you have destroyed the breadmaker. It would be cheaper to buy a new one than trying to get it repaired.
You should have connected the breadmaker to a stepdown transformer from 240 volts to 110 volts.

My Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher keeps blowing the fuse. It sat up for 6months because the control panel went out and I couldn't afford to get a new one. Finally replaced the panel and the thermal fuse...


Are you replacing the wires along with the fuse? It is important to change the wires too as they are usually the cause for the fuse blowing. Be sure and get the fuse kit that includes the wires.

Is your water too hot? Hot water is fine but too hot of water can cause the fuse to blow over time. The temp should be somewhere around 120 F. Anything over 130 F is way too hot. I personally don't use a long high steam final rinse or high heat because over time the steam and cause the electronics to short as steam and moisture can get into the keyboard and inside panel.

I plug in my dishwasher and the fuse blew in the socket any ideas shall I try again with another fuse?


No it sounds like a fault. Did the fuse blow immediately or during the program. A multimeter should be used to test for short circuits.

Oven blew a fuse


The POP sound normally indicates a short circuit fault (as opposed to overload) you need to have it looked at by a competent person.
