There is a short in the unit somewhere. It can be the power cord or it can be internally in the coffee maker. You can test the power cord before replacing it with a multimeter. Set the multimeter to OHMS. Take the power cord and connect the red probe to one connector on one end of the cord. Touch the black probe to both connections at the other end. You should only get a reading on one of the connections. Repeat this with the other connector. If you get a reading on both connections then the power cord is shorted out and must be replaced. In other words you should only have continuity on one of the 2 wires in the power cord. If it shows continuity on one connection on one end of the cord and 2 connections on the other end you have a short.

My 4H.P. 25 gal. air compressor doesn't work, when i plugged it in it blew the beaker and the outlet. Now it's dead?


Check motor reset on end of motor. Check cord for damage, insure insulation isn't cut. If you've reset your breaker for receptacle , make sure switch for compressor is off, plug in , then flip switch. See if motor attempts to run. If the problem repeats, motor could be shorted if cord is ok.

TV will not turn on


Check the wall outlet, make sure there is power at the wall. If not, check the breaker panel. If there is power at the wall, check the TV for a manual on/off switch. If you have a power switch on the TV, turn it off, wait 10 seconds, then turn it on. If no power switch on the TV, unplug the TV for 10 seconds, then plug in again. Use the remote to turn the TV on. Check for a fuse or circuit breaker on the TV, usually near where the power cord enters the TV.
Make sure you have good batteries in the remote. If all this fails, then something may be damaged inside your TV, as a result of a power spike before the power went out, or when it came back on.
Take it to a repair shop.

Life Fitness 4000 repeatedly blows outlet circuit breaker


If there was a fuse in the treadmill it certainly wouldn't cause your main circuit breaker to blow. It sounds like the motor burnt out and shorted- which is causing your house circuit breaker to blow. There is a chance that the ball caused some other damage that is creating the short but my bet is on a burnt out motor. You would need to disassemble the unit and test for short circuits to verify.

Bulb blew on cooker hood and I replaced both. Light still won't work and neither will fan - both working fine until bulb blew.


hello. I can assist you. begin by going to the electrical panel for your home. You will be looking for the circuit breaker or fuse that controls this hood. Chances are the actual problem is that the fuse blew, or the circuit breaker kicked off. To reset, replace the fuse with a new one of the same amperage, or turn the breaker on and then off and then back on again.

Instruction manual for Bakers & Chef 60 cup coffee urn. I need to know how much coffee (in cups) to make 60 cups of coffee. I misplaced the instructions that came with the coffee urn. Thanks, Tom


I use 1/2 cup ground coffee for 12 cups. I make for the church and guests and everyone seems to like it. I use the same amount for decaf or regular. Hope this helps.

My daewoo microwave/toaster blew my breaker upon resetting it and plugging in the microwave it blew again then it tripped my GFI what could be the problem?


Probably a short inside the microwave circuitry.  I had a Daewoo and had nothing but trouble with it.  Main board went out in a year, then again in another year.  Finally went to Home Depot where I bought it and was told that they had nothing but trouble with them and quit selling them.  Now I have a GE Spacemaker.

PS3 vs Toshiba 65" 65hm117


Sorry to here about your problem. I have a 65HM167 Toshiba tv which is the same as your model, and I have my PS3 connected HDMI with no problems. Try using a different brand HDMI cable and a different HDMI input on the tv if you have not already done so. Hope this does it for you, good luck.
