My fuse 25a keep blowing in my Mercury Grand Marquis 2001


That is not enough info to give a suggestion. What circuit is the fuse for - look at the fuse box? What happens when the fuse blows? Did something get wet or damaged prior to the fuse start blowing?

Won't start. new battery and alternator installed.


Assuming this fuse-blowing problem wasn't a problem prior to the replacement of the battery and alternator there are only a few possibilities to consider. First ensure that the battery you purchased has the correct positive and negative post placement. Some are reverse and it is easily possible to place the cables on the wrong posts if this happens (not the most likely problem, but needs to be mentioned). Next, check where you connected the red wire to the back of the new alternator. Ensure that the insulator is not cracked and that the wire is not in contact with anything but the mounting stud that could cause a short. If that is ok, then I would disconnect the wire hot from the alternator. Ensure that it is not touching anything, and reconnect the positive battery terminal. If the fuse does not blow now, there is something wrong with the new alternator. Yes, it can happen. Take it back, tell them what it does, and have them test it.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV 7600CGW that keeps blowing the 10A fuse prior to the switch mechanism. This has happened 6 times in the last 12 months. Every time it is the 1st load after after a heavy load...


HI,
I have found the possible cause to your fuse problem, I would suggest replacing your lid switch to the unit, this can cause you fuse to blow. Item #3 below is the switch Part# is 22003804, I and hopeful this will correct the problem for you. Is part should con with the Item #7 in the picture also, replace them both, made even be a different color. I think gray is the color right now.
I hope this helps kidlmo_5.gif

The fuse keep on blowing after few minute of use in electrolux dishwasher ESl4114


Hi, the most common fault on a washing machine is when the heating element is breaking down it will cause a trip or a fuse to go because it is a "resistive load" i.e a small short circuit.
Try to put your washer through a cold wash cycle if it completes the cycle without blowing the fuse then you know that you need a new element. If it still blows the fuse then you are looking at most likely a motor problem.

Hotpoint aquarius extra wma40 - door locked light is flashing and want lock. also before this happened a sound from the machine like an explosion which blew out fuse in the house. please advice


Hi.
I suspect that the top control board has blown , this happens when the brushes wear out in the motor, and short circuit the motor armature, which in turn blows the control board.
Either way it is likely to be an expensive repair, my advice to you would be to buy a new washer if it is more than 5 years old.
I know from experience that this is the most likely course.

My Miller furnace occasionally stops in mid


If the flame looks good prior to the room air blower starting but becomes unstable when the blower starts, you have a crack or hole in the heat exchanger. I strongly suggest your technician do a test on it to see.

Brand new furnace, transformer opens on primary side. also seems that transformer is hotter than normal. I have checked all componets for short to ground and have replaced control board.


The short is on the 24V side...I would put a 3 amp fuse in series with the Hot 24v line before it gets to the circuit board from the transformer you will have to replace again....have a few spare fuses....after having done that./...turn the power on and call for heat...Observe what happens and what stage of the cycle you're in when the fuse blows...Exhaust fan starts...Ignitor starts to warn up....etc...I need more info...shorts are hard enough to find as it is.......does it blow the fuse immediately...usually it will go through a few stages before you get to the problem piece....Make and Model of the furnace could also be helpful to me
