Question about Lakewood 792/JR Utility Heater

1 Answer

The light is on at the switch but no heat or fan

I looked inside and can not find a fuse, there is power to one side of the heat coil lead but not to the other. There is a small electronic part between the two leads, is this a replaceable part?

With the unit disconnected from power use a DMM to check the resistance of the heating element. It should be very low, only several ohms. If this checks out read the resistance across the device you mentioned. If it is infinity, and I suspect it will be, it is open and will need replaced.

If it is silver and cylindrical with a point on one end it is probably a thermal fuse. They have their rating printed on the side of the device. It is in degrees C. Probably 160 or 180 degrees.

A replacement should be available at http://www.mcmelectronics.com or just do a search for thermal fuses and you will probably find what you need.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche driver side heated seat switch with pedal adjustment and memory does nothing, doesn't light up or anything. The passenger side heated seats work perfect. Does this sound like


The left I/P fuse block also contains the 25A LT DOORS CIRCUIT BREAKER which could be defective (no 12V on ORG lead). The I/P relay block contains the 30A SEATS CIRCUIT BREAKER which, if defective, would affect the memory seat module (also no 12V on ORG lead). The pedal adjust circuit receives power through the 15A EAP FUSE in the underhood fuse block.

MAIN HOUSE FUSES TRIPPED, RESET, OVEN AND GRILL WILL NOT HEAT UP


It would appear that the tripping of the switch has caused some kind of short within the cooker. I would look for the continuity of the heating element.

Most likely the wires leading to the heating element have burnt and will need replacement. If you are comfortable with attempting a DIY, well and good. You will have to open the back panel to access the said wires. It should be easy enough to identify..it will be the wire leadingto the heating coil.

If , however, you are not familiar with these kind of things, I would recommend getting a repair guy to do it for you.

Cheers and good luck with the repair!

Gas dryer starts to heat drum turns then heat shut off and drum keeps running


This could be the effect of a number of problems. Here's a list of things to check and details on how to do it.
  • Fuse could be bad -- Check the fuse for a break inside. If it's bad, replace it with an identical fuse.
  • Temperature switch could be bad -- Use VOM to check the switch. Set VOM to RX1, remove leads and touch the probes to the switch's terminals. The reading should be zero or infinity. Turn the switch, and the reading should change from zero to infinity or infinity to zero. If not, the switch is bad.
  • Thermostat could be bad -- Set the VOM to RX1, take a lead off one of the two outside terminals and press the probes to the two outside terminals. There should be a reading of zero. If not, it's bad.
  • Heating coils may be bad -- Set the VOM to RX1 and remove the leads from the coil. Press the probes to the terminals. If the reading is zero, the coil is bad.
  • Timer could be bad -- Disconnect the leads from the motor. Set the VOM to RX100. Clip the probes onto the leads. If the reading is infinity, the timer motor is bad.

Coiling fan radiator


Having a problem with the electric fan? Here's what to check: first make sure fan is free-wheeling. Spin it by hand. If no obstructions, use jumper leads off the battery to test fan motor. If nothing, motor is bad. If fan operates off the battery, find the radiator fan relay under the hood, and pull it out. One relay terminal will have a hot at all times power source, probably from a fuse link or a maxi-fuse in the fuse/relay box. Check that one terminal is hot at all times, using a voltmeter or test light. If you have air conditioning, turn the AC on, key on. Now, two terminals at relay should show power-the power feed source, and the signal from computer to turn the relay on.
Didn't say what kind of car or year you have, but here is how an older Nissan turns the fan on, without using the computer, and with no AC: the relay signal to shoot power to the fan comes from a thermal switch mounted in the radiator. When coolant reaches 194 degrees F., the thermal switch will close contacts internally, passing power to the relay's coil side of relay. Relay is energized and passes power to the fan motor.
For your car, you will have to check a wiring diagram to see how the cooling fan circuit is set up. The fan relay may be triggered by the computer or by a coolant sensor somewhere in the coolant system.

Pressure switch goodman furnace 100-4 blinks three times, installed new switch still wont start.Also does inducer motor start before gas fires??


2nd question first here: Yes, inducer motor (exhaust fan) must run before gas an fire.
MY FOLLOWING ANSWER WAS COPIED OVER FROM YOUR OTHER POST...
I'm going to assume you can operate and understand a VOM, as well as being able to observe the proper safety procedures for performing service work.

In the case of a control board returning an error code for a failing pressure switch, but the pressure switch actually checks out OK, try this:

Test your exhaust fan power leads for power coming in from the board during the first few seconds at the start of the heating cycle. If power is not showing up there, there is likely another circuit malfunctioning somewhere preventing startup. However, if power is showing up there, then deactivate the system and disconnect the exhaust fan power supply leads from the motor. Test the motor's coil for continuity - a failed exhaust motor coil will result in no vacuum for the pressure switch, hence no heating cycle allowed by the control board.


In my case, the exhaust fan actually failed due to a broken coil lead at the binding post to the push-on connector. I was able to repair the coil lead myself - at no cost - hurray!

I have a Samsung microwave model SMH7177STE/BE. Will only heat a few minutes before and shut off, now there is no heat. I am a licensed elect. but no experience with microwaves and having difficulty...


Its tripping a high limit most likely. Be careful there is 2100 to 4000 volt high side with a capacitor if its not an inverter. The standard components consist of noise board, fuse, touch panel and power controller, high limits, door switches, whipper motor, fan, transformer, capacitor, transformer, magnetron, diode, plate rotator.
Discharge cap (for safety and further testing).. Test fuse; if fuse tests blown test door switches first. Test limits. Check amp draw with slow blow fuse; open door to stop unit and again discharge capacitor. Test resistance to ground on whipper, fan, magnetron, light. Test resistance lead to lead (measurable on motors/coils/magnetron). Test capacitor in ferrads, compare to spec on print. Check diode forward and reverse. Test output voltage from power control board to transformer. Test transformer coils.
Best of luck and play safe; dont test voltage output from the transformer, voltage at capacitor or magnetron.

Neff microwave oven not heating


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))

Dryer will not dry clothes properly


A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.


 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle between 120 degrees and 170 degrees. Check that the drum seals to make sure the are not worn out.
