Case Short Circuit in the machine. Please check the power cord, the plug and the connection at the end. Check for any loose/broken wire connections. Also Are you getting any burning smell near the machine when the fuse blows up, If so then wiring in the compressor is short circuited. You have to call a technician as you may not be having tools to check the short circuit.

Won't turn on. Power went out to the whole house when roof was being replaced. Tell me where reset button is


What won't turn on? If the entire house lost electricity, that means that either the main electric line was severed or the main breaker in your panel was tripped. I suspect the latter. Go to your main electrical panel, open the door and look at the top of the panel. There should be one large breaker marked either 100 125 150 or 200 A. This is your main breaker. Turn it off and turn it on.
If you don't know where your electrical panel is, go outside and look to see where the electric wire comes from the pole to your house. There will be a meter pan here with a glass housing on it. Your panel is almost always directly opposite of that meter inside your house so figure out what room that aligns with and that's where your panel is. I hope this helps.

Why does My dm2852 works on electric, but not gas. It lights (small flame), but doesn't cool.


It is more than likely just a dirty orfice. It can be cleaned quite easily by soaking it in rubbing alcohol then blowing it out. Do NOT POKE ANYTHING THROUGH IT! 946177a3-e85b-4832-879e-b23434d529ef.jpg ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold

Electrolux EOB 6632 oven trips main house circuit breaker if used above 180c. Installation electrician has done whole house test, says everything normal, must just be a particularly sensitive ciecuit...


Hi, welcome to FixYa! my name is Shaun. I hope i can help you out with your question. Your main house breaker is tripping over 180C because of the amount of current your oven is drawing. Keep in mind that an oven is capable of pulling up to 1/4 the amount of amperage of your total house current capacity, up to 50 Amps. This is assuming you have a typical 200 Amp main breaker. Add this in with your heating/air-conditioning, up to 30A, if electric, your water heater, 25 A if electric, and whatever lights and appliances you have plugged in and turned on, you can imagine how quickly those amps add up when your oven is on. Your oven breaker won't trip because you're not exceeding 50A on that circuit, however if your total household load is exceeding 200A, your main will trip. Also, breakers lose efficiency over time. Sometimes they can drop current capacity by as much as 25%. So your best bet is to replace your house main and see if that fixes your problem. Hope this helps out. Have a good day!

Compressor keeps turning on and off, I can hear it and it dims the lights showing an increase in power draw, it will blow the main circuit breaker to the house. Therefore it does not run enough to remove...


If when it's running it dims the lights in the room or entire house, The circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, is not a high enough amperage to carry the dehumidifier and whatever other electrical appliances that are on the same circuit. OR if your house is hold enough (1970's era), it may have aluminum wiring and its overheating .

If it's blowing the Main Circuit Breaker for the entire house and not just the circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, Stop using the dehumidifier immediately!!! Have an certified electrician check your home's circuit breaker panel and wiring. This could be a dangerous situation.

Fridge keeps blowing the breaker


Depending on what is causing the breaker to blow will be important to know. Refrigerators do draw a good bit of power on a 20 amp circuit especially when the refrigerator goes into defrost. Refrigerators are made to run on a 20 amp circuit without other machines or appliances using the same power circuit. Circuit breakers weaken over time too especially if they have more than they are. rated for plugged into the same circuit. And your circuit may be doing its job by detecting an excessive draw of power when the refrigerator is plugged in. You must have someone that knows electricity to inspect your refrigerator for shorting and the circuit it is plugged to for correct wiring for every ones safety. Thanks, Sea Breeze

have the neutral power connection on that circuit and back to the main house panel and then have the neutral connection checked at the power companies side also, it sounds like you have a high resistance neutral connection somewhere in the circuit and its looking for another return path due to the high resistance on the line to another feed circuit line to make connection

Brunt smell and sweating


Seems like your blower motor is burning up. Its the motor that blows cool air across the refrigeration coil. If it is a whole house ac unit, probably your main blower motor for the furnace. If you are getting sweat, that means the compressor is compressing the refrigerant, and you should not smell anything from the outdoor unit, only from the furnace. Hope this helps.
