If you have 120VAC going to the unit, then you have one of possible many problems. Please check the following or have a qualified person to use a multimeter to check: 1. The door switch 2. An unplugged wire or broken wire within the unit or at the switch.3. Timers (especially mechanical timers) use a mode to turn the unit off sometimes the contacts break causing the need for replacement of the timer. If I have no meter handy, kill the breaker, I would remove the door switch leads(wires) and connect the two together using a little electrical tape,turn on the breaker. If it works it is the switch and replacement is needed. If not look at a broken wire or timer. You could disconnect the power leads to the motor and check if it is getting 120VAC in the run mode, If it is getting voltage and it is not running or it only hums it is burned out; if not timer, switch or broken wire would be a possibilty.

My hp dv9310ca did not boot up. When I press power button, all led light up for about 2 sec, then turn off. nothing happen. No beep. no noise. Thanks for help.


Hello,
Double check your power source. If there is a light indicator on your power supply, make sure it is lit up when its plugged in. This will rule out if you have a dead battery and your power supply is not working properly. The issue you described is one that is affiliated with a dead battery.

I hope this information helps you and gives you a place to start. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Regards,
Nico

My Whirlpool dishwasher was running when there was a power failure, and now there is no power whatsoever. The power failure happened when the machine was on final rinse and drain. Water is still in the...


Most Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers have a thermal fuse, located inside the operator console. When tripped, the dishwasher will not run. A power outage can cause the thermal fuse to trip. It cannot be reset and has to be replaced, if bad. Please post back with your COMPLETE MODEL NUMBER (located around the door opening) so I can determine the configuration of your dishwasher and explain how to access any potential fuses. -->

Why is it dead?


Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

Lenovo R61 Dead


The power supply in most computers has a fuse, either internal or external, that can blow without you noticing. Basically, you've been on battery operation this whole time, and the battery's finally gone dead.
It will be necessary to open the case and examine the power supply section. It may be possible to replace the fuse yourself, but any operation of this nature that involves opening the case will void any warranty you may have.

Cannot start the dishwasher - no light, no movement whatsoever


Hello, First thing you want to do is check your circuit breakers to see if the one for the dishwasher has tripped. Also look under the sink.. Many dishwashers are plugged in to an outlet under the sink and sometimes the plug can get pulled out. Check these things first and let me know what you find. Good luck.

Stopped working altogether


Check the door switch, it may have gone bad or maybe isnt connecting with the catch, making it look dead. They wont do anything when the door is open, as you know. Also remove the lower panels to get to the inside of the dishwasher. Check for power where the cord is plugged into the machine. If you have power, unplug it and look at the terminals to the heaater element. They are on the right side, facing down out of the dishwasher tub. Just look inside the dishwasher to see where the heater goes through, then look in the same place underneath, Check the condition of these connections. The timer gets power through the heater element (strange but true) so if the heater is bad or these connections have heated and melted, it will cause a dead dishwasher. if tis just the connectio, pu t a new terminal on it and you should be good to go. Hope this helps
