Nopwer indication. The wall transformer is putting out voltage. Is there a fuse anywhere and how do I get to it?

    The power adapter was putting out 12.22VDC when measured, so it looked OK. I did find another 12 VDC adapter (only 1 Amp, though) in the house and gave it a try even though it was underrated. Worked fine - long enough to configure and test the router which was OK.. So the adapter looked fine to a voltmeter but not when under load. Now I just need to find another adapter. Digi-Key has one that looks good.

    Not really, I had already found the problem by the time the solution was posted. The solution, however, was Correct.

Hi. There are no fuse for routers. Check and investigate first with the power adapter. If you have a voltmeter try to test if you are getting the correct voltage. You may use another adapter with the same voltage as part of the test.

Keurig B31 Mini Plus Brewing System not working


There is a transformer that take the 110 voltage and reduces it to 13.8 or 14 volts depending on your unit model, it runs an electronic board or little computer in the coffee maker. It's the brains of the coffee maker. I would say you fried the transformer and possibly the electronic board if the high voltage made it past the transformer. I have replaced the transformer in our sons Keurig and that fixed his problem but he didn't plug it into 220v. The transformer is not expensive, an eBay item at around $15 or so. Taking the unit apart is not an easy thing to do. But if your handy you could figure it out and test the transformer to see it it's putting out the right voltage. Just check the voltage tag of the one that it came with so you can order the right one for your pot.

Inside control on wall is not lighting up so therefore my ac unit won't turn on


Look inside the air handler, next to the low voltage transformer for a 3 amp fuse. Check that fuse and if it's ok check the transformer.

Burning smell, then quit. 4 yrs old.


That is not a good sign, the problem is in the high voltage, especially if it was a funny smell it would indicate the high voltage transformer "flyback transformer" is toast along with other parts. The set is 4 years old, and new tv's are designed to break down anywhere from 3 to 5 years, probably more cost effective to buy new.

When turning on main switch light goes on but no other lights go on. This one has a light for low voltage, flame, ect. none of thode lights lite. Jet heater doesn't attempt to start either.


Is there a reset or an in line fuse ( a little glass fuse )? This is only indicating that you have power to the heater. If I were to guess I would say there is something between the high voltage and low voltage, usually manufacturers will put protection (a fuse ) on the low voltage side of your step down transformer. Remove the electrical cover after powering it down and trace the wires from the plug to the transformer looking for a reset or little glass fuse.

The picture is like a ribbon and multi picture at once and this tv is about 5 year old hardly turn on


This model was pron-ed for having the High Voltage transformer connections going cold and creating open connections which in-turned would open a small fuse just to the right of the transformer. There are 3 fuses that look like real small brown rectangular boxes and the one that opens is in the middle. The repair is to loosen the high voltage board and re-solder all the connections on the transformer and replace the fuse. I know you said it hasn't been played much but that doesn't matter with this type of problem. A service company will probably charge anywhere from 150-250 dollars to repair unless your handy with a soldering iron.

Powered Subwoofer repair--- Transformer issues?


Well yes transformers do fail and the transformer does say it has an internal fuse fitted which might have failed. The fuse on the board blowing is an indication of overload. The fact it didn't blow again shows that it is not getting any power or the fault has gone (doubtfull).
I doubt the transformer is a step up. But follow the circuit on the pc board till you come to electroytic capicator. This will have a voltage on it. The power level will be no more and perhaps less than the voltage on the capacitor. Another clue to the power level is if the secondary wires are narrower than those that go to the mains. That will indicate that less voltage comes out.
OK what to do. Well most makers say that the transformer is a safety item so it has to be replaced with the same type or one which is approved by the maker. So you can either contact the maker direct or find a service center, (for the brand) which might order you a replacement, or take the transformer to Radio Shack with details of the model number of the Sub, and see if they can get it for you. While there have a look at the multimeters. You should find one that will help you for all your future needs. I recomend one with a scale (rather than a digital). They are some around for £10 to £20 (I know you live in the USA but you can convert it) that will do what you might need it for.
The first thing to do if you get a meter is check with the ohm setting diodes or bridge rectifiers for shorts. IE: as if you had touch both probes together! Also do the same with any transitors you might find. As this could be the cause of the fuse blowing, and even the transformer's failure.

No Power


Usually there is no fuse in the printer itself. The big block that you plug into the wall is actually a transformer. It converts the 120V power from the wall outlet to a much lower voltage and also converts it to DC power.take the plug in end with the cube transformer in it and bring under a good light and it will read the specifications about that power converter. What sometimes happens is that the transformer inside that cube fails (through various causes) and thus produces no voltage or the wrong voltage. Take the plug with you to an electronics store of your choice and they will direct you to a universal 120AC to a DC transformer (it will have various settings and various plug adapters) and then follow the instructions to match the voltage on the old power converter. I hope this helps you out.

No power to my router


Check the wall outlet for power, using a lamp or such. If you can get a multi-meter, set the meter to Volts-DC between 12 and 20. Plug the power supply into the wall outlet and test the other end for voltage. The power supply should tell you its output so the reading should be more than a couple of volts. If it is less or ZERO the power supply is dead. If it has power, then open the router and check for a fuse. If the fuse is dead, replace. If there is no fuse or the fuse is OK then the router may be dead. Best of luck.

Carrier air conditioning unit #38ckc042


Yes, the wires for your thermostat are low voltage 24volts, and there is a fuse that protects it, now if the fuse is gone, nothing will work until you separate the wires and put a new fuse, the fuse is inside the ac unit, if you cant find it, that means it doesnt have one. there for need to check voltage at the transformer.
