I was not present during a power outage in vaction home. (indicated by most appliances and clocks reading reset) Appliance is completely dead...no lights, no power. I have checked breakers; replugged appliance into other recepticles to no effect. Unit is less than 2 years old. Is there a reset or on/off on this appliance? Help!

    Suspect you're right about the board as this has happened before but not with this particular one. I intend to buy the part online and attempt replacement myself after some research as I have the time and the inclination to learn being 65. Would a surge protector help eliminate this in the future as it is not uncommon for rural electricity to be unpredictable?



    Thanks

    The board revealed a blown 15A fuse which seems to be non replaceable as it is soldered to the board itself. Too bad. Thanks for the help, I will replace the board

No, no reset button on this unit - it's a very simple circuit on the logic board, no programmable processor in it. If it's completely dead then the power surge has fired the logic board and you will have to replace it.
Unfortunately you will have to call a repairman, replacing the board requires at least a basic experience in repairing refrigerators.

    Yes, a surge protector will definitely help , but only once - you will have to replace it after every big power surge so keep an eye on it, it will signal when it has done its job.

Oven is two weeks old. Town had a power outage we reset at breaker but still just beeps once and nothing happens


power outages cause power surges when the power comes back on
this surge generally manages to fry the power/control board
I suggest that you get the services of the service centre to come out and check it out.

Defrost light (red light) is on in heat mode and unit not working on heat. Has happened since a power outage.


Good Morning Ray,

I understand that the defrost light is on in heat mode on your Electrolux air conditioner, and your appliance is not working on heat. I also see that this has happened since you had a power outage. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try any setting. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please provide me with the model number of your air conditioner. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

All of a sudden the microwave will not coming on at all no clock no nothing, it completely lost power. I've tried a different outlet and it has no power. Did it blow up?


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

The bottom oven on my zanussi zuq 875 has stopped working. No power indications of any kind.Top oven works fine. Followed instructions in manual but no power at all.ie; indicator lights, fan ,oven light....


Hello,
Have you checked that the timer clock is set and not flashing,because the rest of the cooker will work after power outage but for the main/fan oven to work the clock needs resetting.

Hope this helps.

Krups FBC2 Convection Toaster Oven Simply no power at all.


Having a toaster oven and a coffee maker on the same circuit is asking the breaker to trip in the house electrical panel, but I guess that you have learned the drill: only one appliance on at a time. Try moving the oven to the working side of the socket (the two socket sections can be spit apart and power each half from a separate house breaker and wiring). If the oven now works, check for a tripped breaker in the house panel. If the oven still doesn't work, look for a reset button near the cord entry point. Many heating type appliances have a thermal fuse that opens when things get too hot, but you need to get inside the cover where the cord enters.

I had the some problem a few days ago when we had a power outage during the night. Try unplugging it, leave it unplugged for about 10-20 seconds, and replug it back in. Reset your time on the clock and it should work then.

It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.
