Hi Watsonelecco!

No scams here... most of us on FixYa are like me.... we enjoy helping people out with their everyday problems. I work nights and do this as a hobby... I used to teach advanced electronics and Radar for the US Navy.
It is difficult for me to give you a diagram for "xyo-gnd" since the term is not familiar to me, even though I worked as an industrial field service engineer. My guess is that you need to connect your washer/dryer to your electrical outlet.
First thing.... I need to know where you are located, and what type of power service you have coming into your home. Most US homes are wired for 115 Volts and require a separate input for 230 volt appliances. Most European, Australian, and Asian homes are wired for 230 volts and connecting your washer/dryer will be simpler, but still require some work.
The first thing we will need to know is how the power comes into your home and how it is distributed. Look at your circuit breaker panel. You will have a mains coming in that feeds a 2 pole "main" breaker- it will be rated at between 100 and 300 AMPS in most homes.
Next... the other breakers in the panel.... how many are "2 pole" breakers (what looks like 2 switches connected together) and how many are single pole? Only a 2 pole breaker can supply power for your washer/dryer.
Now, you need to determine which of the two pole breakers are rated high enough for 30 amp service. If none say 30 amps or higher, you will need to install a new breaker and run a 10/3 AWG type UF cable to where you are installing the washer/dryer. Find a recepticle that matches your washer/dryer plugs, and install it with the black wire to the brass lug, the white wire to the silver one, and the green wire to the green lug.
Once you have the wiring done, you will be good to go!
If you already have a dual breaker rated at 30 amps supplying an outlet where you are installing the washer/dryer, match up the plugs/outlets the same way... black wire to brass, white to silver, green to ground. You may have to purchase either the correct outlet, or (more likely) the correct plug, since most units do not ship with power cords.

Won't power on


I would first check the outlet "under load" to be sure it works. A quick & easy way is to use a toaster or hair dryer.

If the outlet is good, then it may be the microwave's fuse or the oven thermostat.

The service manual is here. It also has instructions for removing the oven from the wall, which you will need to do to check / replace the oven thermostat.

You can order parts from the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

How many amps a fuse in breville mixer


Not knowing the model of the mixer you are talking about, or where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, I can't tell you. But I can tell you how to figure it out. Simply do this:

You obviously know what your main power supply voltage is, either 240 volt or 110 volt
You can look at the mixer and there will be a data sticker with the wattage of the motor on it

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Therefore, if you have a 500 watt mixer on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse
a 750 watt motor on 240 volts 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse
a 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

etc etc etc.....

Hope this helps

Need to know amps for installation, please. thank-you


Look for the sticker in the back you should have the Amps, the Volts, the Power, if you have the Voltage and the Power than you have to do a litle math... the Amperidge is obtained from deviding the Power from the Voltage ex:

Voltage is 120 volts, Power is 90 Watts than the Amps would be 0,75 Ampers (90W / 120V = 0,75A)

Need directions for use & care of American Harvest snackmaster jr 50/60/70


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Can a combination microwave/convection/exhaust fan appliance which draws 1500 volts and has a 3 prong grounded plug be hard wired to panel and what size of copper wire to use


I assume that you mean 1500 Watts ?

which is 6.25 amps UK or 13.6 amps US

1.5mm UK 14 Gauge US

The National Electrical Code [NEC] requires their own cable sizing for premises wiring. Refer to the NEC rules to determine building wiring, as this page relates to electronic equipment wiring. For reference, the ampacity of copper wire at 300C for common wire sizes
14 AWG may carry a maximum of 20 Amps in free air, or 15 Amps as part of a 3 conductor cable.
12 AWG may carry a maximum of 25 Amps in free air, or 20 Amps as part of a 3 conductor cable.
10 AWG may carry a maximum of 40 Amps in free air, or 30 Amps as part of a 3 conductor cable.
8 AWG may carry a maximum of 70 Amps in free air, or 50 Amps as part of a 3 conductor cable.

Microwave comes on but does not heat


This means the magnetron is either bad, is not receiving the high voltage it needs (failed diode) and/or the fuse is blown.
You can trouble shoot this yourself with the help of a cheap digital multimeter and a reading of the Chinglish instructions that come with it.
Be advised though; if the magnetron and the diode are OK you can encounter ~ 700 volts on a charged capacitor so let the unit rest unplugged overnight if you intend to poke around in it.

My spacemaker microwave just completely stopped working.No lights, no clock, no fan, nothing. I checked the breakers and the recept is still working, but the microwave is not working. Is there anything...


It may be the fuse, or the oven cavity's thermal cutout / thermostat or the magnetron's thermal cutout / thermostat.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number
here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted, so please reply directly to me with your full number from the tag on the unit so I can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.
