SOURCE: I have a Norcold 9000. It works fine on electric

Have you tested for 12 vdc at terminals where element is connected to board? If yes, and 12vdc is present, then I'd pull element out and bench test it carefully. Just let it cool down, and attach 12vdc from a battery or other source to it and see if it heats up. Careful not to burn your fingers or hand when feeling outside of element for heat. If no heat felt, replace it.

Just installed a new Kenmore range. Glass Top elements don't come on or heat up. Clock works. Haven't tried oven. What do you suggest?

If this is a brand new oven, I would call where you purchased it and have them make it right! You will have a one year warranty that comes with that oven.

No power to inside on/off switch 120v or 12v, i checked with multi meeter

You either have a bad harness from the main board to the eyebrow board or the eyebrow board is bad. You can open the freezer door and snap the upper cover off of the refrigerator which will expose the harness. The harness will be secured to the back of the eyebrow board with a small plastic band and a screw. you can either disconnect the harness and tie/tape a string to the harness which will allow you to reinstall the harness after testing or you can make a long jumper that will connect to the harness and allow you to test the continuity without removing the harness. Either way you need to check the harness for continuity and also verify that there aren't any shorted wires. If the harness checks good, then it is probably a bad upper circuit board (eyebrow board).

Replace Receiver Board on Arlec Air Conditioner

Are you sure it's the receiver board? If it's cooling and switching on and off, I would suspect the 4way valve or coil, not a control circuit. Of course, you may have already tested this and found no power to the valve coil, in which case I apologise and suggest you try on line to get a manual. Good luck!

I have a Duo Therm rooftop AC inb my 2004 General Coach park model trailer. It has a heat/cool thermostat with a slider for t-stat control and hi/low on/auto fan switches. On heat it works fine. ON cool...

Got to be a relay/ contactor that is bad. Tstat is not energizing the relay to bring the compressor on. If you can understand the schematics you need to find where your high voltage stops. If you give direct power to the compressor and it runs then obviously power is not going through relay. Either bad relay or that the relay is not being energized at all by the tstat with low voltage. Good Luck

N621 does not cool or does not turn off/on with the button The lp lights fine but the compressor does not seem to be getting cool.

Eyebrow board or control board is bad. kI just had one like this and it was the control board. The compressor shoiuld not get cool. The entire back of the fridge will be hot. You need proper air flow for the back to cool properly. That will cause all kinds of problems as far as cooling.

My LG 7000 BTU Heat / Cool Window Air Conditioner does not cool and the fan speed F1 will not work. Fan runs on F2. The heat works fine. Any suggestions?

You have a control board issue. You can get a new control board by Google searching the make and the model of the unit. There are several sites that sell them

The power and auto lights will not come on, but there is power (110V)and no blown fuses on he 12 volt.

If you have power to the refrigerator, then access the rear panel and remove the cover from the control board on the left lower side. There is also a 12V located on this board. Check to make sure that 12V is passing through the fuse to the board. If all seems ok, you need to check the eyebrow board. Remove the front cover of the fridge and check for 12V at the eyebrow. If it is there, then replace the eyebrow board.

Carrier Weathermaker SXI Model 58SX8100LG Code 12

Code 12 I believe is power up after power off and a call for heat from the the thermostat. If you have a weak door switch that may be vibrating and going on and off it would cause this as would any thing that causes the power to drop low or out then reapply its self. try holding the door switch in while watching the board and after 2 or 3 minutes the furnace should go on to lite and the blower cycle off. If it stays in this mode try turning the thermostat off (heat - OFF -cool) and then push in the door switch nothing should happen except the lite on the board come on and stay on. If it does this than have someone turn the thermostat to heat and see if it starts or put the door on and set the heat and see if *** goes through the normal cycle of heating. If however it goes right back into the blower mode and shows the 12 code your problem is still with you. So next remove the wire on the "W" terminal on the board. Retry power to the door switch and now nothing should be on except the red lite. If it tries to start the 12 code and blower up again Im pretty sure you have a bad ignition/blower control board.
