Question about Kitchen Ranges

Cofee maker TCM 402-04 Thermal Carafe Black and Decker coffee maker doesn't brew. It isn't used from what I can see. I bought it at a second hand charity sale. The clock functions fine, powers up ok timer works, tried viniger but it doesn't pass through for it to brew either. The valve seems to open and close. Everything seems to be in order except the brewing cycle. And that's everything ! Please help!

The Oven and Range are working; however I have a F5 code on the display. Can you tell me what this means?

The F5 code means that the range door isn't latching properly (for some Whirlpool ranges). Check the latch when the oven is cool. If it is loose, tighten the screws that hold the latch. Try opening and closing the door to see if the latch is clicking shut properly. Then unplug the range for 30 seconds to a minute to reset the unit. If the error clears, you're done.

If the error persists, clean the latch area. With the oven not in use, rub the latch area with a cloth that you dunked in hot water and wrung out the excess water. Then dry with a paper towel.

If cleaning doesn't help, the latch probably needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. Please give me the model number of your range for additional ideas. Whirlpool has the user's manuals for most of their appliances at their site. See and the Manuals and Literature search box.

We have a Kenmore electric dryer (67902) that we bought second hand for our vacation home about a year ago. This visit to the home it started turning off by itself mid-cycle. Then it stopped working...

If the home isn't occupied all the time, you may have something blocking the dryer exhaust vent ducting or blower housing inside the dryer. This is usally caused by either birds or mice building nests in these areas. If you haven't inspected the dryer vent ducting or interior cabinet anytime recently, now might be a good time to do so.

Usually what happens in these circumstances where the dryer cuts off mid cycle, or fails to regulate heat properly, is the appliance isn't provided with enough air flow to properly vent. Without proper ventilation, the dryer heating element actually overheats and the Hi-Limit Thermostat will cycle it off. If the problem is not resolved, eventually the dryer will overheat to the point of failure. The common cause is the Thermal Cut-Out and/or Hi-Limit Thermostat. NOTE: If either one of these components are found to be defective, you need to replace BOTH of them. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any components you replace. However, if either one of these components were to fail, your dryer would still start, but wouldn't heat.

In your case, the THERMAL FUSE is probably bad. The thermal fuse is located on the blower fan housing inside the dryer. It is a small component with two wires attached and is usually white in color. To access, you need to open the toe panel directly below the dryer door. This is accomplished by inserting a putty knife along the top seam of the panel where it meets the front of the dryer. About two inches in from each side is a retaining clip that needs to be depressed to release the panel door. Once the panel door is open, locate the thermal fuse on the blower fan housing directly under the dryer drum. Remove the wire leads and take any measurements across the terminals of the fuse. If good, the fuse will read about 0 ohms when measured with a multi-meter. If bad, it will read an open and must be replaced. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer BEFORE servicing.

Some other problems that will cause a dryer not to start:

Broken drum belt
Broken door latch
Bad Timer
Seized Drive Motor
Tripped Service Breaker
Bad Power Cord
Bad Electrical Receptacle

The following two links can give you more advice on how to troubleshoot an ELECTRIC dryer with a no heat, or not start problems:

You may want to also verify your source voltage at the receptacle, service breaker, and verify your power cord.

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations that you can use to locate and properly identify any parts you may need. If the model is correct, the part number for thermal fuse is 3390719. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If your model number is not listed on some of the websites, use the part numbers from the Sears website and use that as your search criteria. Some model numbers will not reference on some sites, but the part numbers will.

I bought a used stf 15 bunn coffee maker , i hooked it up to the water line , and plugged it in , my problem is that it will run about enough water for about 2 pots , i hear it click when the first pot...

Yes that is possible. There is a pressure regulator that is normally mounted on the back of the coffee maker. On older models the filter and pressure regulator may be inside the cabinet accessable by removing the bottom panel of the coffeemaker. The pressure regulator is a hexagon shaped usually brass fitting about 3 inches in length. The filter looks much the same. Both of these brass fittings should be somewhere in the water line between the wall faucet and the water inlet of the coffee maker. If not there the unit will overflow if you water pressure is over 40 psi in your location. These fittings are available from restaurant equipment stores and on Ebay for example. There is one other thing you may try. If you take off the panel directly behind the coffee pot you will see two adjustments. One is a temperature adjustment and looks like a small pin sticking up with a smaller pin at 90 degrees from it. The other adjustment is a timer. There will be a dial on the timer. This timer sets the amount of water per cycle by controlling the time that the fill valve stays open. Turn the timer counterclockwise by about 25% and hit the brew button again. If it overflows reduce the timer again. If you don't have a pressure regulator, you may not be able to turn the timer low enough to prevent the overflow situation. Good luck!

Is the cup size you are using to measure what comes out of the coffee maker the same as the cup size that you are using to measure what your putting into the coffee maker?
