There should be a series of phillips head screws (star) holding the black casing together. If you remove the 2 or 3 screws along the immediate front of the case, you should be able to open it up just enough to see the outlet. It's a small plastic piece about the size of a grape attached by two wires (red and black). The outside of the outlet is threaded so when it's pushed through the hole, you thread a nut on the outside to hold it in place. If you've lost the nut, you can easily tape the outlet in place, or just run the ac adapter cord in through the hole in the case, use the opening at the front you made by removing the screws and plug it in on the inside to power it. Replace the screws and just make sure you keep anyone from yanking on the power cord.

Whirlpool refer is 3 weeks old and just stopped working. Like it was not plugged in, everything is off. I check the breaker, it was not tripped but I reset it anyway. Still dead. What do I do>

next time send the full model number,if it's under 1 year it's still under warranty so call whoever you bought it from or call the 800 number off of the model number tag on the machine,one thing you can try,run an extension cord to the fridge and plug it into another power source and see if it runs or plug a light into the socket you have the fridge plugged into to make sure it's not the plug,if you have gfi's in the kitchen one of them could be tripped,seen this before,fridge shouldn't be connected to gfi but find them like this,if you open the door and no lights or nothing is on you have no power,if the socket is good,remove the back panel and check the power cord,i found a guys fridge would power down just the lights on the board on the door that controls the machine,thought i was the board because the lights inside were on,it was the power cord,went in the back and moved the cord and board would light up,very strange,loose connection on the cord.if these things check good call the factory,if you mess with it you could void the warranty.good luck.

I purchased a refurbished GE MAC 1200 EKG machine with a new battery. The first time we used it, it worked perfectly. The second time we used it however, only the standby light comes on. The screen remains...

There's several things that could be wrong. What I would do would be to try to run it off the battery, and if it works, then there is a problem either with your power cord, the power cord connection, or the power module inside the machine itself. Try completely turning off the system. Unplug it, figure out a way to let the battery be disconnected, turned off, or just simply let it die. Then re-boot the device and see if there's a change in operability. If there is, or isn't, you should consult the owners manual, and see what you can find on the issues your having. If all else fails, have a technician stop by and work on it.

My Elna 6005 just stopped everything went blank no power no lights no nothing what could be wrong?

No, should not have a fuse. Just plug in the cord carfully into the machine again. Make sure the wall socket has power first.
Could be that the foot pedal is burned out if it has been used a lot. But that is not too likely.

Turn your on/off switch to off, unplug from the machine, wait 30 seconds and plug cord back into machine, then into socket. Turn your on button on. See if this will reset it. Be sure to turn any lights off when in the off position.

Do you think the power cord is going bad? If so here is the parts list for the Schwinn 430 if you need to order a new AC adaptor. If you think the connection inside the machine is going bad you may want to find a servicer to look at it.

The computer on my schwin 418 eliptical does not work. Is there something I can do to fix it myself? Where can I get it serviced?

Call Schwinn customer service (actually Nautilus) at 1-800-nautilus if it is broken so you can order a new one or they will send you a new one if you are under warranty. They are very helpful. You can also check the power connection on the bottom or make sure the wire harness in the main pipe in the center is properly connected if the system is brand new and not working.

Vehicle power cord - red light went out after plugged into BMW motorcycle socket

Try checking the fuse inside the power cord. To do that, twist the tip off. If the fuse is blown, replace it

No power

Check your power cord very carefully....especially the plug ins (square box)....could be the power supply itself. Regarding fuses; You can't see it inside the computer it is an electronic component. Got to go to store
