Water dispenser delays after power surge problem

Our house was hit with a power surge problem when a transformer was knocked over. Like many of our neighbors, we suffered damage to some of our electrical equipment, but not all. We've had all the problems checked out except two, but before I go calling repair, I wanted opinions on whether these problems could have been caused by the power surge.

The water dispenser on our Whirpool refrigerator now has a longer delay between the time you press the lever and the time the water comes out. I've read elsewhere on this board about the problem possibly being a valve or a solenoid. Would a power surge cause the delay problem, or would it have wiped it out completely?

The second possible problem is also a delay problem. When I press the On button on our Sears Kenmore front-loading washing machine, it seems to take a little longer to start.

Neither problem seems to be getting any worse. Opinions?

Yes these appliance may have been affected by a power surge. dont think the solenoid would be but any electronics can be. there will most likely be a burn mark on the boards but not always.

MALIBU 200 WATT IRON CORE TRANSFORMER MODEL NO 8100-0200-01 LIGHTS WONT TURN OFF


Plug power pack into cheap wall timer, and that will operate lights until warranty is resolved with Malibu or product-seller.

Simple power outage, or nearby lightning strike, can cause surge that will knock out digital timers. And knock out analog series power packs too.
You probably need receipt for warranty claim.
This timer is not shown on Intermatic site, and not subject to Intermatic 5-year warranty, but certainly Malibu must have a warranty of unknown length, and a corresponding claim procedure.

Double-check your installation, and additional resources:

Whole-house surge protection is hot item among folks these days since so many household items are now electronic, including appliances, washer-dryer, water heaters, timers, etc.
This will protect both 120Volt and 240Volt circuits, although it is unknown if your timer failed because of surge..

Two nights ago, there was a major power surge in my area and lots of appliances were knocked out. The alarm box AC transformer burnt out. I replaced it but the alarm system, every half hour or so keeps...


It's possible the power surge damaged the panel as well. Disconnect the battery and wait for the AC Loss. You'll get a Low Battery on the keypad. Enter your code + off to silence the beeping. If the panel is damaged, it will shut off and back on when you would normally get the AC Loss. Good Luck.

A power surge at the clients house took out surge fuses on some bits of kit. We have repaired them. Now we are left with the bosch micowave with no power. Any suggestions?


If it has an invertor for the HV, return it to a Bosch Agent for repair but if it is a standard transformer, check the transformer supplying the control board.
Hope that helps.

First I made sure the detergent dispenser door was closed. That did not work. Then i made sure that the dispenser was clean, by running water thru it. That did not work,.

Water heater continues kick off and we receive a flashing message of c-1


I believe that is C7 as there is no C1 code. This is a fan issue. There is no measure of fan rotation. The unit may have been hit by a power surge and knocked out the fan. It is possible that it may be receiving lower voltage if it is plugged into an extension cord. If it is affected by a surge, the computer may have been hit also. You will need a multi meter to check this out.

Fridge making "knocking" noise


Remove the light shield and there should be screws under it. Remove the air tower in the back, it snaps in and there is 2 screws behind that as well to remove the damper housing that sits behind the light. Also not sure what your model is but some models have 2 air ducts that run up each side, they come out after the light shield is removed by sliding foward and then pulling down. After the screws are removed in the upper plate the light assy will snap out and there is 2 quick disconnects on the wires.
