The usual cause of this is the main breaker is not making good contact where it plugs into the busbars. Eventually it burns itself clear (open). The main breaker most likely needs replaced. Sometimes the busbars are damaged enough (from heat caused by the bad connection) that the entire panel needs replaced.

While replacing the breaker is not a difficult task, it's best to have this done and the busbars inspected by a qualified electrician, as one must be fully aware of the hazards involved.

Be prepared for sticker shock on the price of the new breaker, probably $100 to $150 just for the part.

Sparking in power box when we use the generator and trips the braker


When you say "power box" do you mean the main breaker box in your house? Is the generator hooked up to the breaker that you say trips when the generator is on? There is a short somewhere. First check the generator. Is it running OK. In other words if you plug something into the generator receptacle directly, does it work? If the generator itself works properly, then check the wiring from the generator to the circuit breaker. DO NOT use the generator until the problem solved = safety first.

Kenmore model 970-506021 no power to burners or oven but display works


Did you reset the house circuit breaker to the oven. If the stove is only getting 120 volts instead of 240 the display will light but no heat. A remote possiblity could be a burned wire at the power connector where the main powewr comes in to the stove of a bad comnnection in the junction box.

MY PRODUCT HAS BEEN BEEPING EVERY 10 SECONDS AND GREEN LIGHT FLASHING. NO OTHER LIGHTS ARE BLINKING.


if it is plugged in and the power circuit live then check to see of the 2nd light from the left is lit.

this means the battery needs replaceing.

if that is not it turn the unit off and back on... you may need to hold the button for 5 seconds to turn it off.

doubble check the circuit braker on the back of the unit and the main for the office or house.

Blown Fuse


Find the main braker to the house. Pull it out, or flip it off. It's probubly right above the fuse. Plug some thing in several outlets, to make sure all power is off. Then use a pare of needle nose pliers, to get the fuse out. Make sure all power is turned off to the house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No power on kenmore range


Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

If everything above is ok, move on to the power cord junction point. make sure the power cord has not separated from the junction point on the backside of the unit.

2000 Blazer. No power to the orange wire for either front seat. Which fuse or relay controls the frt power seats? Its not listed on the fuse box covers and I do not have an owners manual.


The orange wire is the power wire for both seats.It gets its power from the power seat circuit braker (20 amp) located at the body relay block.It is located behind left side of dash near fuse block. Remove circuit braker and check for power in body relay cavity that you pulled the relay out of if power is on one side change circuit braker and if no power on either side then you have a bad main fuse near battery or under hood in main fuse block.
