I have a Westinghouse microwave WST3501 and need a longer electric cord..any suggestions ?


A person with electrical experience can splice in an added amount of cord, but I would not recommend any more cord than needed, since too long a cord can affect the current and possibly lead to overheating and damage.

And I do NOT recommend permanently running a microwave off an extension cord. That's very dangerous.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My coffee maker wont turn on


Many coffee makers use neon bulbs to indicate that power is on. These do burn out after a while, but replacement is usually somewhat difficult. In this case, the coffee maker still works; you just don't have the immediate visual indication.

Many of the urn-type coffee pots have problems with the power cord breaking where it goes into the pot. To fix this, you need to remove the bottom, cut the cord where it is broken (on the outside of the pot), strip it back to match the part of the cord remaining inside the pot and crimp on new terminals of the same kind used on the original ends. The hardest part is squeezing the strain relief clamp where the cord enters the pot to remove it, and putting it back on. Study it carefully as it you remove it from the cord so you know how it works. To avoid a repeat of the same problem (and buying a new cord), be careful not twist the cord or bend it too tightly at the strain relief. NOTE: one of the wires in the power cord has a rib on the outer jacket. This is the neutral wire. Make sure it connects to the same place inside the pot as the original neutral.

Other failure points are at the power switch, or (rarely) the heater element. I've seen a programmable coffee maker with a burned-out relay (magnetic switch in a black plastic box on the circuit board). The clock and timer worked, but the heater wasn't getting any power. That part is about $5.

The easiest way to identify the problem is with an ohmmeter. Start by removing the bottom of the coffee maker (unplug it first!). Identify the heater terminals (the heater looks like a small version of the one in your oven and has either screw or slip-on terminals). Connect one of the ohmmeter test leads to each heater terminal to measure the heater resistance (typically 5 - 20 Ohms). If you have a basic (non-programmable) coffee maker, turn on the power switch and measure the resistance from each terminal to each prong on the plug. You should read either nearly zero ohms, or the heater resistance plus not more than a few tenths of an ohm. If you read open to one prong of the plug, you are on the track. Trace where the wire from that heater terminal goes. If it goes to the power switch, check the resistance of the power switch in the on position. If the reading is more than a couple of tenths of an ohm, the switch has dirty contacts, or it's broken or burned out. If you have a good connection from the heater to the power line side of the switch, but you get open from there to the hot side of the plug, the power cord is bad. Likewise, if you get an open reading from the other heater terminal to the neutral side of the plug, the cord is bad.

Programmable coffee makers have a similar troubleshooting procedure, except that you have to check for live AC voltage with the pot plugged in - this is not something to try if you aren't trained in the safe way to do this.

Does this pot have to be plugged into a 20 amp circuit? thank you.


There is no pot description in this post -- it reads "Problem with Microwave Ovens".

But, if you are talking about a cooking pot for your basic American kitchen, the answer would be no, it does not need a 20 amp circuit.

Is there a name-plate on the pot ? The amp draw should be on the name-plate.

I recently purchased a 4-cup Farberware coffee pot (to replace one that served me well for over 30 years!!) The Model number is FCP with the initial G a few spaces after the FCP. I have had trouble...


Helen,

Fixya is does not sell parts or service, but rather helps answer questions about getting parts and service problems resolved.

You should contact the Farberware website for a replacement cord for your Coffee Pot. Click the "Customer Service" button on the left side of the page, or telephone 1-800-233-9054 for customer service if you'd prefer to speak with someone instead.

I hope this helps - and Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

Take a look at the picture on this web link of the 3 power cords.
(scroll down just a little)

http://www.toastercentral.com/cords.htm

The pin spacing sizes are 1/2", 11/16", and 1 & 1/16ths inch.

Then you can go to this page:

http://electrical.hardwarestore.com/12-33-appliance-replacement-cords.aspx

scrolling down the same distance and look at the details of each cord.

Most large hardware stores have these cords if you know the Woods Industries number. Usually 0288, 0290, 0291, 0293 There are a few others but they are all in the same range from 0288 - 0293 (WOODS INDUSTRIES)

If you can not find it at a hardware any appliance parts center will also have them. Just remember the WOODS INDUSTRIES numbers.

Microwave trips circuit breaker when plugged in repeats when breaker is reset . There is no problem with house electric.


The circuit is probably a 20Amp circuit (see the number stamped on the circuit breaker switch). Most likely, it is the same circuit as the refrigerator, crock pot, window A/C unit, etc....

Also, if you are using an extension cord or a power strip or a surge protector. Those may not have a high enough power rating.

One other possibility (not likely) is that the circuit breaker is a 15Amp and the microwave is 1500 watts.

What else is cut off when the circuit breaker is tripped?

Solution is to use a different outlet for the microwave, or turn off any other applicance in the same circuit (except the refrigerator, of course).

Hope this helps!
