You can try the following: 1# Check the main power cable & make sure it has 110V (Do not run the machine with long extension cable).2# Check all harness connection.3# Check keyboard cable connection on back of control board.4# If all the cable connection is good then you may need to replace the control board.
Hope this will help you to solve the problem.

Outlets not working all fuses are good

The following electrical components (if so equipped) will only operate when your
RV is connected to shore power: 120 to
12-volt power converter, air conditioner,
120-volt refrigerator, microwave oven, television(s), fireplace and appliances
plugged into convenience receptacles.

The 120-volt AC circuit breakers located in
side the main load center protect all
120-volt wiring and components in the RV fr
om circuit overloads and short circuits.
Should a circuit overload or short circui
t occur the circuit breaker protecting the
affected circuit will "trip" preventing the flow of electricity through that circuit.
If a circuit breaker trips, shut "off"
the appliance on that circuit (i.e., power
converter etc.) and allow the circuit breaker to cool down for a brief period of time.
After the cooling down period, reset the circuit breaker by moving its lever "off" and
then back to the "on" position. If the circuit breaker re-trips or frequently trips,
contact your dealer to have the electrical problem diagnosed and repaired.
A circuit breaker identification label is permanently attached to the inside surface
of the 120-volt load center.
Maintenance and Replacement
At the beginning of camping season, inspect the circuit breakers and replace as
needed. Test by turning each circuit breaker "off" and back "on". Circuit breakers
are wearable parts and must be replaced
as needed, as part of your RV
maintenance. If you have any questions, consult your dealer.
Please contact your dealer for repair assistance when replacing circuit breakers.
The power converter converts 120-volt AC power to useable 12-volt DC power
when the shore power cord is connected to an external power source.
The converter has a built-in protective thermal breaker that will shut it down should
overheating occur. Overheating can be
caused by operating the converter above
its maximum power output for an extended period of time, or by an obstruction to
its ventilation air flow. To reduce converter heat build keep unnecessary 12-volt
lights and motors turned "off"
Keep the converter cooling fins and fan clear of
Inspection and maintenance
If the 12-volt power converter is not working (auxiliary battery not being charged)
check the reverse polarity fuse(s) in the converter fuse panel.
There are no
customer serviceable parts inside the converter case and the
manufacturer's warranty will be void if
the case has been removed
. If you
have further concerns contact your dealer.

Domestic duo therm gets 20volts everywhere I checked. I have yet to check the switch on top of the compressor. Neither fan nor compressor turn on or make noise. Get 120 at breakers.

If you don't have 120 volts at the power connections at the unit, you have an open fuse or wire someplace between the breaker and the unit.

Ruud troubleshooting

do you have the lower door in place tight ?? because there is a door button switch. so if its not pushed in all the way you would have no power at furnace. also make sure nobody turned off the on off service switch usually above furnace or sometimes one at top of stairs and one down by the furnace .if those suggestions don't work you might want to turn each breaker off then back on incase one is tripped. if that don't work check for 120 volt at your fan timer board also it may have a automotive style fuse on the board which if blown it wont do anything. if there is 120 volt at board and the 24 volt circuit fuse is good its probably the fan timer board.

My oven 240 volt outlet plug is showing 120 volt on one of the power legs when the 40 amp switch is switched off. We keep burning out oven parts. We replace the 40 amp switch and are seeing the same thing....

First confirm that you have current available on the 120 leg by trying a lightbulb (use the ground leg for your neutral). A meter can show 120V even if there is just a slight leakage, but no current available. If the bulb lights (with the two-pole breaker off) then you have a wiring error. Find our which other breaker is supplying that 120V through a process of elimination. You might also confirm that the 40A breaker actually does turn of both legs by checking the output lugs of that breaker with your meter. Put one lead on a lug and the other lead on the neutral. Repeat for the other lug. Good luck!

Not getting hot

first make sure theres 240 volts at the dryer plug in ,if not then try resetting your circuit breaker ( or fuses ) if its electrically heated (not by gas) and is plugged into a 240 volt receptacle as even though the breaker may not show its tripped by the little orange window on the breaker it can lose one phase of power ( 120 volts) and still turn but it needs both phases to operate the 240 volt heating element,if you lose one leg of power ( 120 volts ) either the drum will turn or the timer will run (but not both ) because each of these parts only operate on 120 volts or one leg of the 240 volts

How do I know if my Hotpoint oven 920 years old0 is on a 220 0r 120 line? The serial plate says 120/220.

An oven uses both 120 & 220 -- actually it would be 120 volts and 240 volts or nominally, 110 volt and 220 volt.

The 120 is used for the lights. The 240 is used for the heating elements.

A 240 volt breaker (nominally 220 volt) -- supplies both 120 and 240 volts depending on how the supply is connected to the appliance.

There will be a 240 volt (nominally 220 volt) breaker in the main panel for the oven. This is two 120 volt breakers side-by-side with their toggle switches connected together with a strap across the top of the toggles.

We have a kenmore electric dryer runs with no heat. repair manual said to check fuses. House panel has circuit breakers none tripped manual says there are two house fuses in the dryer circuit. If one of...

Older fuse panels would have two fuses, one provides power from each 120 volt leg in the panel, therefore providing 240 volts for the heater coil. The motor in the dryer only requires 120 volts, so it may possibly still run if it is on the side with a good fuse. In newer panels that have circuit breakers, you may only have a single handle, but the breaker is a 240 volt breaker (which controls both 120 volt feeds at the same time). You will likely notice that this and all other breakers that are 240 volts are twice the width of a single 120 volt breaker. There is no "second fuse" for you to check, as the circuit breaker takes the place of both fuses in an older style panel.

If you are able to confirm that you have good power at the power connection at the back of the dryer (120 volts between black and white, 120 volts between red and white, 240 volts between red and black wires), then that typically only leaves the heater coil itself or the timer to check. Check continuity on the heater coil first, and visually inspect it for a broken or shorted coil. It is usually the culprit.

If the coil checks ok, carefully check the voltage at the terminals that feed power to the coil. Depending on the model, there may also be a thermal fuse or thermostat that is inline with the power feed to the coil itself. Check this to make sure that it has continuity as well.

I hope this helps you with your repair troubleshooting. Good luck!

Where is the thermostat on the Frigidaire FERB7800DSO ?

you should first check your fuses/ circuit breakers, the dryer can run with 120 volts but wont heat unless you have 240 volts.
if you have fuses, switch the 2 fuses around, if you have breakers, click the breaker to off and then turn back on.
try the dryer again and see if it runs and/or heats. if yes or no then that was the answer.
if not a power problem, then you could have a timer or motor switch that has failed.
both are hard to check without a volt meter and not something that you should test without proper training as you have to test these with LIVE power, and could be a safety issue for a non trained person.

Getting Power everywhere is not cord. I have

Try reading the resistance on the coil itself. If your coil is damaged and has a high resistance the voltage will still read 120 volts, becuase there is no current. The voltage drop across the coil is equal to the resistance of the coil times the current. V = I * R. "I" being current. If the resistance of the coil is high because it is broken then the voltage will still read 120V. Another way is to read the current through the coil.

If it is a 1500W fryer then the current through the coil is about 12 amps. 1500/120= 12.5. To calculate the resistance of the coil you would you take the voltage divided by the current. 120/12.5 = 9.6 ohms.

Therefore the resistance of the coil should be very low. It will actually be lower when it is not hot. So your ohmeter should read somewhere between 5 and 15 ohms.
