Your thermal fuse is bad. It is a little white plastic piece with 2 wires attached. It is right beside your fan.

Tripping circuit breaker


That unit shows that it takes 15 or 20 AMPS to run. What is the breaker amperage on the circuit where it is plugged in? Is the breaker a GFCI? You can tell by looking for the two buttons on the circuit breaker or the outlet.

One of the breakers assigned to our Hot wtr htr has been tripping recently leading to loss of hot water. This has happened twice in the last month. After resetting the breaker things have worked fine,...


Breaker could be bad.
Let's do a quick check and save you money.
Open top cover on water heater and push in red reset button that might be tripped.
If reset is tripped, water heater should turn ON.
If reset will not reset, then replace upper thermostat:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
If reset is not tripped out, then it is OK, so test two top wires on upper thermostat.
Use cheap multimeter from home center, and set dial to 240-250-277 VAC.
Test across top two screws on upper thermostat to see if you have 240Volts.
To do full troubleshoot on ordinary tank electric water heater takes 30 minutes and multimeter
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

If water heater is not receiving 240V, then the breaker is suspect, or a wire between breaker and water heater is loose.
See basic water heater circuit
http://waterheatertimer.org/240-v-water-heater-circuit.html

Now let's look at circuit breaker:
Mark suspect 240V breaker.
Identify all your breakers, and also mark another 240 Volt breaker that is same amperage as water heater 240V breaker.
Turn off main breaker.
Take front panel off breaker box.
The wires and lugs on main breaker are HOT, so stay away from that area.
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html
Suspect breaker has 2 wires coming from breaker.
See if one or both wires are loose, and then tighten.

If wires are tight, then move these wires to the other 240V breaker that is rated for same amps as water heater.
Now turn on main breaker.
Put ear against water heater tank to hear bubbly fizzing sound.
This will identify if circuit breaker is bad, or if water heater needs a full troubleshoot.
It is not a good idea to run two 240V appliances on same 240V circuit breaker, so you may have to decide one or the other appliance until you can replace breaker.

DEWALT DG6300B NO POWER OUTPUT


Hello avid.....

If there is no power to the receptacles:

1. Turn the circuit breaker switches off and disconnect all electrical loads from the generator.


2. Turn the circuit breakers on and test the GFCI's by following the procedures in this manual

on page 1 -

TO TEST A GFCI:

Start the generator. Turn the auto idle switch off. Push in the TEST button (A) on the receptacle.

The RESET button (B) will pop out. Power is now off at the receptacle.

If the RESET button does not pop out, the GFCI is not working. Do not run

generator until the problem can be corrected. To restore power to receptacle,

push the RESET button in. If the RESET button pops out during operation,
stop the generator and check the generator and equipment for defects.

3. Place the voltage selector to the 120 Volt only positions (unless you are using a tool that

requires 240 Volts).


4. Turn the idle control switch off.


5. Turn the circuit breaker(s) off and reconnect the electrical loads. Be sure that the plugs are

securely connected to the receptacles.


6. Turn the circuit breaker(s) on.


7. If there is still no power at the receptacles, take the generator to an authorized DEWALT
service center. To locate a DEWALT service center nearest to you, call 1-800-4-DEWALT

My breaker is conected to a hot tub. tub was working fine in auto mode. Turned on jets and breaker tripped. will not reset can you help me


I am assuming this is a GFCI circuit breaker? If it is it will have a "test" button on the breaker. When you say "jets" i'm assuming you mean when you turn on the blower to make the air bubbles? It could be you have a problem with the blower motor. When you start the blower, it trips the breaker. Be sure the blower is in off position when you reset the breaker. The most common fault though on a spa/hot tub is with the heater. If the element goes bad, and current flows to ground, it will trip the GFCI breaker. Again try and turn all functions off. Reset breaker, and then turn on one at a time till the breaker trips. First the pump, then the heat, then the blower.

All of a sudden dryer won't come on. Checked connection, OK.


Check your circuit breakers. Your unit usually has a double circuit breaker. Find the correct circuit breaker and turn it to the off position to reset it then turn it back on.
Good luck

How do I reset a Eaton breaker with a tester on it?


This is a GFI (Ground Circuit Interrupter) Breaker. So you need to turn off the circuit breaker first. Then you need to reset the GFI (yellow button) by pressing in the button. And then turning the breaker back on. Now, with some GFI's, you need power on to reset them. So if this is the case, reset the circuit breaker by turning it off and then back on. Then press the yellow button in, and it should hold. Then you should have power restored. I hope this works for you. If not, feel free to contact me again. Good Luck!

Does the rf375pxdw whirlpool range have a fuse or reset button? burners and oven does not work. there is power from the 220 plug into the range and the clock operates but not the 220. I checked circuit...


No reset buttons or fuses. Find the circuit breakers for the unit, it should be a double breaker with at least 40 Amp rating. Push it to the off position HARD (make sure not to pull the breaker out of the panel doing that). Turn it back on. Check voltage in the range power outlet. It should measure 220-250 Volts between the right and left connectors, and 110-125 Volts between the center and each side connectors. If not - problem is in the wiring or breaker. If you get those voltages and the range is still not working - problem is in the range itself. Check for shorted and loose wires.

KA KAdette 250 - I hit the switch the other day and nothing happened. I checked the circuit breaker - ok. I also checked the small breaker button on the bottom of the disposal. It is at least 12-years old....


12 years is middle aged for an appliance, but the problem is probably one of the garbage disposal big three: a tripped circuit breaker, a tripped reset button, or a jammed disposer. With the breaker turned off, make sure the disposer's shaft rotates freely. On most disposers there's a hole in the bottom middle where you can insert an allen wrench that you're probably find under the sink and rotate the shaft manually to free jams. But, for the love of God, only do this with the breaker turned off and make sure you remove the wrench (or broom handle if you have to go from the top) from the disposer before turning it on. Make sure the reset is pushed down until it clicks if it's tripped, and, since circuit breakers get old and stick, you'll have to turn the breaker all the way off and back on to make sure it's not tripped. If the disposer hums but doesn't turn when you turn it on, check to see if it's jammed. If it turns freely but hums and doesn't start then the starter circuit on the motor is bad. If the breaker and reset button are ok and it doesn't even hum when you turn it on, you'd want to check the disposer to make sure it's getting power. You can find a little electrical reader at walmart for $5 that works like a geiger counter and will beep when it gets close to something that's receiving power. The switch may be worn out, but really the disposer's motor failing is probably the least likely thing. But please get a qualified electrician out there if you don't know what you're doing. There's a reason that it requires a license.
