If you have no power going into the machine check your electrical breaker box to see if one of the breakers has tripped if this is a front load machine usually if the door locks up you can remove the lower panel on the very front bottom of the machine and reach up along the right side or if your door lock is oppistie on the left there is a small cord that you can pull to open the door to get at your clothes assure first that you have power going from the plug into your machine and as always if you are not used to doing electrical testing I would ask you to call a technician. It is always better to be safe when dealing with electricty if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Why it want make electricty are load up?

Must be up to full running RPM to generate the right operating voltage. If it is running at full throttle and there is no power out, then the generator head needs to be repaired.

If i put a 110v powersupply in a 220v electricty and burned it would it have effected what its giving electricty to?

While most modern power supplies can handle such a mistake with minimal damage to the motherboard and attached computer components, there is still a high probability that you damaged a component on your computer.

The only surefire way to know if you caused damage is by testing; so it is suggested that you obtain a new power supply, set it on the proper setting, plug it into the machine, and see if it all still works. I'd run some stress tests (there are utilities that can do this for you, or you can have a local repair guy do it), and see if the machine is having any issues.

The most common components that are damaged by a power surge are:

  • Memory
  • CPU (processor)
  • Motherboard
  • Hard Drives
Those are the most common to fail. If you use a new supply, and notice your machine does NOT turn on, chances are, one of those devices is burnt or damaged as well. It is suggested to test them in turn, to see where the issue lies.

Circut board trips electricty board

Treadmills are machines with a considerable pull of electricity. Make sure you are operating on a dedicated circuit.

Most users have the machine plugged into a spare bedroom outlet ehich is either not dedicate (power source spread out to more then one outlet) or is a GFI outlet (Ground Fault Indicator).

These outlets are used so homeowners do not overload an outlet in an area where a resident will sleep and be in danger of a fore or death.

Usually in the first few pages of your owners manual it will give you the requirements for your machine.

You can run an extension cord to another room with a dedicated outlet, but the extension cord does not transmit all the power coming out of the outlet and will eventually lead to other issues, usually electrical issues within the machine.

You can use a multimeter to see what else could be the issue with your outlet, but will want to consider having an electrician put in a dedicated outlet.

I cannot receive any incoming calls

power down, take battery out for a complete 2 minutes. While battery is out hold the power button. this decharges built up static electricty. After 2 minutes reinstall battery and power on phone. If it doesn't work call your provider they will walk you through a series of steps to hardset your phone.

Got a hotpoint washing machine aquarius WT540 think catch is broken how can i open the door

If the catch is broken you are going to need to get at it from inside to release it.

This is usually best done by taking the top or back off and reaching in to release the lock.

Make sure you disconnect the electricty and water before trying this.

My machine has all the lights flashing but not brightly and won't do anything. I've switched it off overnight and it's still doing it! Any ideas?

your voltage migh gone down, your supply of electricty might not have enough power, try to unplug other appliances to your house , and let only the washing machine be plug on, if this work, it means that your eletric current is under voltage or you have a voltage drop on your electric supply
