My Kenmore elite microwave is plugged into a surge protector and keep tripping the surge protector. I cannot use the microwave for more then a minute before it trips. Can you help


Your microwave is pulling more amps than the surge protector can handle. Remove the surge protector from the circuit and plug oven into wall outlet. Preferrably a GFCI circuit. Or you could puchase a surge protector with a higher amp tolerance.

My Kenmore Ultrawash Quietguard Standard dishwasher won't start --or light up. I've checked the wall switch and circuit breaker and both seem okay. Darek Johnson darek_johnson@yahoo.com


Most dishwashers and other appliances using water, are protected by a Ground Fault Interrupter or GFI. These will sometimes trip without having detected any dangerous leakage current and others will get oversensitive causing them to trip well below their design current. A GFI wall socket will have two buttons on it; one to 'test' the other to reset. On some brands, when they are tripped, the reset button moves only a little further out and may not appear tripped. GFIs are also found combined with circuit breakers that also differ in appearance from the unprotected type and will also have a reset button. If your dishwasher is plugged in under the kitchen sink, check its appearance to see if it is GFI equipped.
BTW, these can be used in one location and connected so all of the wall plugs on the same circuit can be served by a single GFI equipped breaker so check any others nearby as well.
If a GFI refuses to stay set, it may be actually detecting some leakage current of a dangerous level so don't assume the GFI is bad, the appliance on it its circuit may have developed an internal problem.

I have a Kenmore model 20802990 washer, it will run for a short while and then stop working, it is almost as if the circuit breaker trips because when I turn the circuit breaker of then back on and switch...


well you right in saying "its triping the braker off" thats what it is doing,,
there is a problem with the washer motor,,its pulling far to many amps so its a fulty motor,,,and it will just keep triping the trip out,,,
its a good job you have trips,,the motor could have gone up in smoke

Furnace keeps tripping circuit break


Furnace. To confirm use an Ampprobe or other brand ampmeter and see how much current is being drawn. If it is more that 80% of the breaker rating, it si for sure the Furnace.
