I am not sure exactly what you mean here; do you mean the whole unit is dead? no functions? no front LED? If it is dead, the 'blown circuit' after replacing the fuse would be the power supply. Chances are, there may be several short-circuit/leaky components within this area.

IC regulators, power/chopper transistors, diodes (may be leaky or shorted), resistors (fusible and standard colour-coded types) may be open-circuit, and of course a whole lot of electrolytic capacitors may have leaked/failed. In other words, it could be an expensive repair job if you were to take it to a workshop and had them fix it. The most likely culprits in this instance would be the electrolytics; these capacitors may be poorly engineered. so they leak or burst their vents (the impressions in the tops of the caps split open and electrolyte comes out). When these caps fail, the subsequent result is increased DC voltage being passed through the lower output rails (due to decreased DC filtering) and they often take several other parts with them. Electrolyte is highly corrosive, so if any gets on to the copper side of a PCB, it will eat the track; which could render the entire board U/S. Let's hope that is not the case here, and hope the surface mounted components on that side are not affected in any way. It might be something simple, which a competent technician with adequate facilities and equipment can ascertain.

BUT - you can submit it to a service centre/workshop, and obtain a quote on the likely repair/parts cost first, this way you can make a decision as to whether it is economical/worthwhile repairing or not.

Or if you have some technical knowledge of basic circuits, you could probably opt to replace ALL the electrolytic capacitors (uprate their working voltages and values where necessary, whilst observing their polarity) and perhaps change the IC regulator(s) as required (assuming you can obtain the correct type and voltage rating of these). Don't forget to check the resistors and diodes for leakage (out of circuit if possible).

I have yet to find a power supply in any appliance manufactured recently with high quality low failure rated components on it.

If when you get the workshop quote on possible repair(s) for this unit, and you find it a tad high, consider cutting your losses and perhaps buy a new DVD player (or a recorder if you want one) with extended warranty - if you do; but only as a last resort.

Of course, all this is entirely up to you. The power supply is the main problem in this unit.

1998 Jeep Laredo continuous clicking sound passenger side under dash it runs battery down ignition is off continuous clicking please help thank you

A number of people in the link report the same problem on the Jeep Forum and there are a number of fixes.

I also found this for you.

The problem seems to be a short in one of the rear dome lights, which seems to be affecting two fuse circuits. The temporary solution was to remove one fuse and replace another (blown), and remove the bulb from the bad dome light. I had to remove "fuze#5-15 amps-Interior Lighting", this stopped the clicking noise, I replaced blown fuze#8-15 amp-Overhead Console, keyless Entry ..." This fuse also seems to effect the alarm system (contrary to the documentation), and I think that was what was killing the engine. The problem existed before fuse#8 blew. Removing fuse#5 may have solved the problem, but the other fuse blew while I was testing the dome lights, and the jeep will not start without it.

Found lots of wires bare or broken in all the door wiring harnesses ( in rubber boot that goes to the door)I first checked both fuse 5 and 8 but both o.k. After fixing the broken wires found fuse 8 had blown. Replaced that and all is well again. Thanks for the advise got me looking in the right direction.

. Fuse box located in passenger side door jam...check #8 fuse if its not blown check others...if it is blown, check your radio, and interior lights for good ground
Clicking noise under passenger dash Jeep just shuts down

How to find short circuit

Different circuits needs different ways. You can start by checking which fuse gets blown when replaced and check what circuit that fuse supplies it's power to. That will narrow down your search to within that circuit. Next remove all components that are connected to the circuit. Replace fuse again. If it still blows, that means that the supply lines is shorted to ground. REMEMBER. Fuses gets blown when its supply line is shorted to ground. If fuse does not blow, connect each component one at a time. The component that blows the fuse once connected is the one that is short circuited.

OUr ASEA Cylinda dishwasher doesn't seem to have any power. The manual suggests the fuse might be blown. THe circuit breaker is fine. Is there a fuse on the machine that can be replaced?

You need to trace the power cord into the machine to confirm this case. It will lead you into the circuit and if power is not present to the controller section there can be a fuse before the circuit.
Remove power to the machine and remove panel to check.

Brake light issue

I believe it deserves mention here that about 98% of all brake light malfunctions do not have anything to do with a blown fuse. In fact, fuses are NOT the CAUSE of electrical circuit malfunctions at all. Electrical circuit malfunctions cause fuses to blow. It is very important when diagnosing electrical circuits, that you understand this basic "cause and effect", so you do not waste time and effort looking for the wrong source of the problem. If there is a blown fuse involved in your brake light problem, you need to find out WHY. Simply replacing a blown fuse will not fix the problem that caused the fuse to blow and will only result in another blown fuse.

With that said, the fuse that protects your brake lamp circuits is Fuse 6B (20 Amp) in the instrument panel fuse block.

HINT: This fuse also protects your hazzard flasher circuits. If these work (front or rear or both) the fuse is not blown.

No a/c or heat or interior lights-is this a fuse?

The problem seems more generalized. A/C - Heat use a different fuse from Interior lights and they're on different circuits. Check the fuses anyway but before replacing any blown one you must find out cause of the blown out.

The fuse of Jamo Sub-200 gets blown off. is there anyone who might know the reason. thanks

try replace the blown fuse with ampere and check the sound if still ok.
some fuse got blown if the load current exceed. maybe high volume can cause the high current.
other cause by short circuit coming from the amplifier.

How do i know if a fuse is blown or not? are there obvious signs or can they seem good when they really are not?

index_008.gif Fuse:
  1. A protection device that opens the circuit, when the fusible element is severed by heat due to over-current passing through.
  2. A part used to join two pieces of metal by bonding them together.
Fuse block:
A box-like enclosure that contains the fuses and circuit breakers for the electrical circuits of a vehicle.

There seems to be no power. No clock. no nothing. It was working fine and then jut stopped. Circuit is not tripped. I tried unplugging and plugging again.

most likely you will have to remove the louvers or trim above the cooking cavity to get to the fuse, look for screws holding the trim/louvers on, if no screws are apparent, the piece may slide to the left or right and pop off.

Unplug your microwave. Although it might seem like no electrical current could possibly be running through your appliance, it could still have stored electrical current somewhere in the system. Be safe rather than sorry and unplug it before you begin.

    Find the wiring diagram for your model of GE microwave. You can contact GE directly to get this if you cannot locate your owner's manual. Note the fuse locations and get a screwdriver. Some GE fuses are located under the louvers, while others are located in the door.

  • 3

    Open up the microwave and locate the blown fuse. Sometimes you cannot determine a blown fuse by visual inspection so check it with a multimeter for continuity across the terminals.

  • 4

    Replace the blown fuse. Go to your local hardware store and pick up a matching fuse. Make sure you check the model numbers of the fuse as well to be sure you get the right component. Install the new fuse and put everything back together.

  • 5

    Check the continuity of the circuit if you continue to have power problems. If you have a problem with continuity in the circuit, then you may have a bigger problem than just a blown fuse. Sometimes a power surge will fry a GE microwave's circuit board, which you will need to replace.

    No heat, seems to be continuity for heating element

    Firstly, make sure you have selected/ascertained a heat setting, then read on from the checklist below, supplied by;

    If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

    Power from the house
    Heating element
    Thermal fuse
    Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

    Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

    Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

    Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

    No Power at all. Fuse T2AL is blown up

    Thanks to Bogbrush (what a name!) above for the hint to check R5107 when the STRG6653 explodes, indeed it was open circuit. I replaced that with a non-SM component since that's what I had to hand, replaced the fuse (2AT), replaced the STRG6653 and replaced the mains rectifier since this looked to have suffered even though cold checks implied it was OK. Then rewarded with a fully working DR-MH200. I had already gone through the power supply replacing any capacitors which had gone high E.S.R, several had. The 27uF 35V capacitor in the primary circuit of most JVC DVD recorders is particularly prone to failure.
