Question about RTO AquaScape 4500 GPH Pump

Pump runs for about 3 to 5 minutes and then cuts out the breaker. The outlet is good because I've checked it with other appliances.

You have checked that sure thing, but if you have that pump on a shared circuit that thing draws more amps than normal appliances or is competing with another appliance and popping the circuit. Try isolating the pump and also make sure the circuit can handle the amp load the pump is giving off. Hope this is helpful.. Good Luck!

Stopped getting cold lights are still on but i don't hear compressor run


Lori Davidson,

I understand that your refrigerator has stopped getting cold and you don't hear the compressor running. I would suggest to give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back. If you still do not hear the compressor trying to run, I would suggest to either contact the manufacturer or your local authorized technician.

-Best Regards-

I have a shu43 bosch dishwasher and the whole machine is dead. No power. The circuit breaker is good but I would have to pull the dishwaher out to check the outlet. Is there an internal fuse?


There is no internal fuse (at least I've not seen or replaced any) on Bosch dishwashers. The most typical problems for Bosch are: 1) one of the power cord connections to the internal wiring is corroded and doesn't make a contact; or 2) the power button has failed.

The number one is so far the most common problem. To check: Turn off the power to the dishwasher by any means necessary. Remove the kick panel on the bottom. There should be a small metal box with power cord and 2 or 3 wires coming into it. Remove screw(s) holding the cover on that box. There should be 2 or 3 wires connected to the power cord wires by wire nuts. Any burnt insulation or wire nut will be the problem area. Cut burnt wires, remove 1/2" of insulation and clean of both connecting wires to bare copper. If you have an electrical contact grease - apply to copper. Install new wire nut.

Good luck,

Wont light up or do anything


The Keurig appliances I've seen lack fuses or the like and are pretty involved to disassemble. They also have a knack for leaking water as they get older. If yours is leaking - even a little bit - the water can drip on electronics and cause a failure.

Unless it is under warranty, there's little that I've seen that a consumer can do without a great deal of frustration to even open it up. With that said, there is one thing you can do that is easy to do and just might solve your problem. Check the outlet. Modern kitchen circuits are "ground fault" protected. This protection comes from a special circuit breaker in your panel - or a special outlet in the kitchen. Regardless of the way the protection comes to you, both devices have "test" buttons. The outlet style has a "reset" button to restore power and the circuit breaker is restored by pushing the handle to "OFF" and then pushing back to "ON". If the outlet is powered, then this will not be the problem. Check it with any electrical appliance or lamp.

Good luck!

Hello

Plug the microwave into the outlet if the microwave won't power up. Make sure the plugs on the microwave match the type of outlet. A four-pronged outlet can only be used with a four-pronged plug. Same with three-pronged outlets---they only work with three-pronged plugs.


Inspect the plug. Make sure it hasn't been cut or tampered with. Four-pronged plugs can't be cut down to fit a three-pronged outlet. Three-pronged plugs mustn't be forced into four-pronged outlets. A three-pronged plug mustn't be used in a two-pronged outlet, either.


Replace blown fuses, or if there's a circuit breaker, check it for tripped breakers. Sometimes the trip won't be obvious, so cycle the circuit breakers. Turn them all the way off and then back on again.


Plug another appliance in the outlet. You will find this easier with three-pronged appliances. Simply plug a toaster, or other appliance into the microwave's outlet, and see if it works. If it works, you know the problem is with the microwave, not the power circuit. Have the microwave serviced or replace it. If the toaster or other appliance doesn't turn on, you know the problem is with the circuit.

go to the qualified electricians on your place... but there is some helpful tips that can help you.. (1) for continued protection before starting. turn off the main circuit breaker. (2) unplug all the appliances or equipment installed... (3) check all the wall socket outlet... look for any damages on the wall socket... if the wall socket outlet have no signs of burned or wet marked, try to turn on the circuit breaker. check if the problem is solved.. (4) if the wall socket outlet have a signs of burned or wet marked.. just replace that w/ the same type of socket... check also the appliances that may caused the problem... the easiest way to know is to look at the socket plug itself... ty

I was cooking food for 1 minute and it just shut off after approx. 30 sec. There are no lights or power now. The outlet is fine. The unit is 4 yrs old.


Check your other appliance. You may have tripped a break. If they are all functioning, and you have no dead outlets in your kitchen, then the unit will need to be serviced. Hope it's the breaker.
a 1200w microware will draw 10 amps all by itself. Your outlets are most likely on 15 amp breakers, so it wouldn't take much amp draw from another kitchen appliance to trip the breaker.

Dishwasher runs but will not drain


sounds like the outlet pump is blocked for this you need to power off the appliance and unplug either remove one side of the dishwasher or tilt back and see if you can get under where the outlet pipe comes from you will see a white pump there should be a metal screwclip holding the outlet hose onto the pump remove this then look inside the hole to check for the blockage normaly rice or fat if you can remove it with a coathanger then all is good if not your going to have to remove the pump and take the side off 3 screws be carefull of the rubber seal then give it a good clean also check the feeder pipe to the pump for any blockage. Also after this remove the filter inside the dishwasher and check there is nothing blocking the small hole to the outlet pump.
