Our 32 inch LCD made by Element Electronics keeps blowing 4 amp 220 volt fuses. We have checked plug to verify that we are getting 120 volt. It just stopped working all of the sudden. Can you help us? thank you

Re: LCD TV blows fuses
Since the main fuse is being effected, it suggests that there is a major problem in the power supply section. I would be looking for a shorted rectifier diode. If you have any experience with electronics, you may be able to locate this problem. If hte set is still in warranty, return it for warranty service. If not, try loking for burned components etc.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

very common failure on this tv is electrolytic capacitors failing on the power supply, the module that your power cord plugs into. The Caps can appear to have swollen tops, replace with same type or slightly higher working voltage. Observe capacitor polarity when installing new parts. Probably 1000 mfd @ 16V could be 1000mfd @ 25V. you need soldering skills to repair the parts in question.
Based from your comments, a new steam shower that blows the fuse in five minutes. You could have installed a new steam shower that is much bigger than what you previously have. 1. For a 5000 watts steam shower at 220 volts power must have a fuse rating of 40 amps, supply wires of at least No. 6 AWG Type THW ; and at 110 volts a fuse rating of 80Amps, supply wires of at least No. 2 AWG type THW. 2. For a 4000 watts at 220 volts, Fuse: 30 amps, Supply wire: No. 10 AWG type THW. At 110volts 60 amps, Supply wires : No. 4 AWG Type THW 3. For a 3000 watts at 220 volts, Fuse: 20 amps Supply wire: No. 10 AWG type THW; At 110volts Fuse: 40 amps, Supply wire: No. 6 AWG THW 4. For a 2000 watts at 220 volts, Fuse: 15 amps Supply wire: No. 10 AWG THW and at 110 volts Fuse: 30 amps, Supply wire: No, 8 AWG THW
Have you checked the fuse? It is located in back of the Breeze in the fuse holder next to where the plug connects to the purifier. It uses a 1.0 Amp slow blow for 110 volt models and 0.5 Amp slow blow for 220 volt models.
If the drum turns, it could be as simple as a blown fuse or breaker. The dryer has doule breaker or fuses at fuse panel. If the one blows, the heater will not work but motor willturn as motor rums on 110volts. It may be cut out thermostat or could be element, but check the power to the plug of dryer out let and make sure you getting 110 volts on from neutral to both sides and 220 between two live lines.
You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.
There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side, one right next to
where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more
by all of the video connections **These are the most important to
remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.
Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will
slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you
will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace
it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four
pack costs between $3 and $5.
Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back
together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back
there. I found a few when I did this.
if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it
If the machine keeps blowing fuses there is a short in the electrical circuit and it needs to be looked at by a certified repair center. Make sure the fuses you replace are the same as the original 100,110 volt models use the 1.0 amp slow blow fuse 220 volt models use the 0.5 amp slow blow fuse.
I too had this problem. I read some posts on this site about how to repair it, and low behold, they worked! I took the back off of the TV, and the first thing I found was the fuse was blown. With my meter, I checked the first 1N5406 rectifier diode after the fuse, and found that it had shorted out. Then I had to learn to desolder the diode, which I learned about on Youtube. I bought a pair replacement diodes at Radioshack for $1.49 and four replacement 125 volt 4 amp fuses. The whole repair cost about $5.00 and a few hours about learning about electronics. The TV works great! Good times!
