Question about Kenmore 73089 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Kenmore 73089 AC keeps blowing the control board. (Doesn't respond or light up in any way when power button is pressed. Outlet power is good.) A repair tech replaced the board last summer. It blew again this July, and I replaced it myself. It just blew again, six weeks later. Runs great otherwise. Seems to blow after a period of prolonged usage, though this time it popped during the night when load was reduced. The fuse on the board seems okay, shows continuity on multimeter. Any idea what could be causing this? THIS IS AN OLD QUESTION. NO LONGER LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER. DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S SHOWING HERE AS A NEW QUESTION.

Sounds like a short in the wire. Not sure if that board powers off high or low voltage but I would say you definitely have a short. You need to replace the supply voltage wire.

SOURCE: dryer not hot

Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

SOURCE: fuse blowing

Your exhaust vent is blocked.
Timed dry is High heat.
Permanent press is a medium heat and intermittent.
The dryer does not get as hot as often in Permanent press mode. Therefore the fuse does not reach critacal and blow.
Remove the vent at the rear of the dryer and run a timed load.
If it dries correctly, repair your vent blockage.
If not, repost and I will lead you to the next step.

My Z100 Tredmill screen will not reset or respond when any button is pushed on the console. The fuse on the board is good. The outlet is properly grounded. Need Help


Safety key is installed? No response from key presses usually indicates a "halt"state for the upper control "brains" like when the safety key is pulled. You can also try jatinah electronics for further help.

Inspiron 2305 power cord doesn't turn the desktop on


After connecting the AC adapter to a wall outlet and to the computer press the power button the right side of the inspiron. The button itself should then lite up white if the power adapter is good. If not, check the power outlet you are using. Plug in something else and see if it works on this wall outlet. Some outlets are connected to a wall switch. If its still a nogo you may need to replace the AC adapter.

My Kenmore Electric Range model 790.9661 seems to have a control board problem. Before replacing the $200 part, just wanted to make sure it was the problem. The clock works, but the oven temperature side...


From your description it sounds that the board is the problem. I found the control panel you need for a lot less than $200 though.
I found one online from a store that I have bought from many times. Part and shipping is about $153. They sell brand name stuff too and they have great service. I hope that this helped you.

Control Panel

Good Luck from a bored repair man!

What is error code F11 on a Kenmore washer


F11 is a Serial Communication error.

Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears.
Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right.
Press this button until no-spin lights.
Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display.
Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08.

If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

Keep us updated.

My tv won't turn on anymore. The power light and the opc light blink twice at the same time and then the opc blinks once and it keeps doing that. Please help!


Hi

Make sure the AC cord is not loose or disconnected. Check to ensure the cord is firmly plugged into the outlet at one end, and firmly connected to your television at the other end. The AC cord connects to the television about midway across the back of the set, near the bottom of the back panel. The hole for the AC connection is shaped like a figure eight. Try powering up the TV with the cords firmly connected.

Check the "Main Power" to ensure it is on. Locate the button on the top of the television among the "Volume" and "Channel" buttons. Press the button to switch the television on. If the "Main Power" button is off the remote will not turn on the television. Wait to see if pressing "Main Power" will activate the TV.

Press "TV Power" on the remote control to power up the TV from stand-by mode. If the power light on the front of the television glows red when you press "TV Power" on the remote, press the "Main Power" button on top of the television to remove the TV from stand-by. If the TV is accidentally in stand-by mode it may not come on when pressing certain buttons.

Check the circuit board. If your set still won't turn on and you hear a clicking noise when you plug it in, you most likely have a defective circuit board.

No power The light does not come on. The game does not turn. The fan does not blow.


  • No Power
    1. Make sure that the words "Nintendo GameCube" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    2. Make sure the Nintendo GameCube has good ventilation. For best results, make sure that the system rests on an open, flat surface. Avoid operating the Nintendo GameCube while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space.
    3. Check the vents on the sides of the Nintendo GameCube for a build-up of dust. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
    4. Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC adaptor (see below).
    5. Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
    6. Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Nintendo GameCube (the port is labeled DC 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet.
    7. Press the power button on the Nintendo GameCube and check to see that the red power light on the top of the Nintendo GameCube illuminates.

      If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.

      1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, memory cards, and all controllers), hookup cables, and the AC adapter from the outlet and Nintendo GameCube.
      2. Let the system rest for about 45 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that the cords on the controllers, AC adaptor, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables (or RF Switch) are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
      3. After the 45 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Press the power button to see if the system works.


        • If the system works, turn the power off and plug ONE accessory into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (GameDisc, controller, Memory Card), there may be something defective with that accessory.
        • If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Control Deck or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

    8. If the power is continually shutting off after aprox. 30 minutes, listen to hear if the fan is working while the system is powered on. If the fan is not running, the problem will continue (Nintendo GameCube is avoiding overheating) and the system will need repair.

  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.

Kenmore elite calypso doesn't respond to buttons except cancel


I've had a similiar problem on my calypso. In my case the key pad would go dead after washing or pushing stop after a few minutes. If I unpluged the unit for a few minutes it would work again. This would appear to be in the controller board. I removed the board and inspected it finding no problems. After re-installing the board the washer appears to be working again. My conclusion is that there is a loose connector/connection. I'd suggest you remove and re-install all the connectors on the controller board. This is the board closest to the power chord.

Good Luck, George S.

32 '' CRT won't turn on afer power surge


Follow these steps to troubleshoot the television not turning on:

Make sure the AC power cord is connected securely to a working wall outlet.
NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, unplug it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

Press the POWER button on the television.
Press the POWER button on the remote control that was supplied with the television.
NOTE: If the television turns on and off using the POWER button on the television but does not respond to the POWER button on the remote control, troubleshoot the remote control.

Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into a known working electrical outlet.
Attempt to turn on the television.
IMPORTANT for the following models only:

KDF-E42A10
KDF-E50A10
KDL-V26XBR1
KDL-V32XBR1
KDL-V40XBR1
Unplugging the above television models from the electrical outlet may only be a temporary fix. The problem may reoccur after several months of use. To completely resolve the issue, a software update is available.

For all other models, service will be required if the troubleshooting steps do not resolve the issue.
