Not a complete model number but most kenmores have a white thermal limit on the blower housing that shuts it down in case of overheat. They can wear out over time. If thats not it schematic should be under control panel.

Why won't my Kenmore 800 series washer fill with water?


Wow, that's a lot of parts and still no water. First thing to check is to see if it will drain and spin. If it does, then we can eliminate lid/door switch and power problem. If it does not, have you checked the outlet? Just asking, I know very experienced tech. that get burned with it. If outlet is good, verify water pressure out of fill hoses. Again, this is a basic check that a tech. can forget. If all this checks, it could be the pressure switch. A bad pressure switch would let unit spin but not let any water in. Maybe lid/door switch also. You replaced the most obvious parts so were down to dealing with something odd. One last note, wiring. Check all the wires and make sure one is not loose. Good Luck!

Microwave Oven Basic Troubleshooting Tips


If you are having problems with your Microwave Oven not working then you need to systematically go through these troubleshooting tips to figure out exactly why your Microwave does not work

The main thing to remember about microwave ovens is that they have large electrical capacitors inside them that can discharge lethal amounts of current even after they have been unplugged. Touching the wrong wire(s) inside, even after unplugging the unit can still be deadly. Make sure that you know how to discharge the capacitors or have a certified repair technician work on your oven.

The most common problem for the oven to not work at all is that the internal (thermal) fuse has blown. This fuse is there to protect both you and your appliance. It will be a simple fix for an experienced technician.

The door switch is another common problem. This switch is activated by the latch, and if it is broken the switch will not allow the oven to work.

If you can hear the oven running and it sounds normal but there is no heat then there is an internal problem with the high voltage circuitry or you may have a problem with the circuit board. Changing the circuit board or the high voltage components is something that you want experienced hands to do.

If it does heat but the power level will not change, then there is something called a triac (electronic voltage controller) that has failed. This also is a job for a qualified technician.

If the turntable stops turning, this is usually caused by the failure of the small motor that spins the turntable. This does not effect the heating but to replace this motor the cabinet needs to be open which will expose you to the hazards of the high voltage components. It is best to seek help to do this.

Intermittent heating problems are often caused by steam making condensation of the electronic components or a loose connection in the circuitry. If it is moisture the circuitry will dry out and work after some time. If it is a loose wire then it will need to be fixed by a technician.

If your unit microwave runs but is buzzing very loudly, then you have problems with the magnetron, the high voltage capacitor, or the power diode. These components are all high voltage components and need to be treated with great care. A good technician knows how to diagnose and repair them safely.

If you observe sparking inside the microwave, turn it off immediately. This can be caused by metal inside, or can also be caused by excessive food or liquid buildup. If it causes any burn spots you will need to have then repaired or fix them to have a safe appliance.

This will give you many of the basic causes for problems in a microwave oven. As you can see there is very little that an untrained person can safely do to repair this appliance.
This can however give you some idea of what to expect if you need to call a repair technician to work on your appliance.

Won't heat


There could be a number of different reasons for your drier not to be heating. You could start off with making sure your getting 240v to your drier. Then you could check the lint trap outside your house to make sure its not clogged. If all is good you will now have to take apart the drier and with a ohm meter check several parts. Heating element, burnt wire, limit switches, and a few others depending on the model. If your familiar with troubleshooting you can find a schematic on your drier and go from there. If not I would recommend you having a technician to come and check it.

Power Button will not turn on.


Verify proper line voltage is present at the outlet. This will require the use of a voltage meter. If not properly trained, I would consult an electrician to verify the voltage.
Part of the troubleshooting proceedure requires the technician to verify that the applience is receiving the required supply power.
This has to be verified at the outlet to eliminate the possibility of a bad breaker or bad connection inside the breaker panel or outlet box.
Hope this helps in finding the solution to your problem..
Thanks and good luck..

Double oven... top works great, bottom has power but will not heat. No codes showing. Have had ohm meter on it and all is functional to elements. GE Profile model # JKP56BOA1BB, older model... maybe 1999.


Do you have 220 volts to the element. If you do then you have a bad element. If you don't then it is usually your erc (electronic range control) or your oven sensor. You need to test your oven sensor for the proper ohms, (should be on your wiring schematic), replace the sensor if you don't have the right ohms rating. You can also compare the upper oven sensor rating with the lower oven sensor rating. If your sensor is good then you need to check if your erc is sending 220 volts down to the lower oven element. Again you need to look at your wiring schematic(usually found in a sleeve behind the oven control panel), to determine which terminals to test. As always you need to be sure that you know what you are doing when you are working with live voltage. If you don't know how to work on live electical products you need to call a technician. It can be very dangerous. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
