Did he check the plug wire. They can go bad. If you have access to voltmeter check each leg of the 220v coming in from the breaker. This can be done where the plug wire connects the dyer. Put one lead to the black or white wire and the other lead to the metal frame of the dryer. Be careful. You should get 115v from both the black and white wire. This tells you that the wire and the breaker are good. A breaker can also go bad.

Many people have had problems with their refrigerator compressors not starting and wonder what may be the problem. Many times the problem can be traced to the start components. The start relay and the start capacitor work together to help the compressor get started. By giving it a short extra shot of higher voltage current, it gives the compressor the kick to get it turning up to speed.

The capacitor is the long round tube on the top of the box that houses the compressor terminals and the start relay.


The start relay is pushed right onto the compressor terminals C and R. It also has two wires that go up to the start capacitor.


The relay can be removed by just pulling out on it away from the compressor off of the pins.


If your refrigerator compressor is not starting, you can change the start components easily, to see if they are the problem. Usually you will have about a 50-50 chance of the compressor working again by changing these parts.


If you are looking for the configuration of the compressor terminals, here is a picture of the terminal cover that shows which terminals are where.

You can check to see if there is voltage at the breaker or breakers, also check to see if you have 220v coming into the box.

You probably have a bad plug connection, make sure all the wiring in there is tight, you may see signs of arcing. A bad connection causes resistance, and therefore causes the breakers to trip. It is best to replace the receptacle on the wall outlet with a new one because the problem will just resurface again soon.

Fan working grill working just no heat in siemens oven

hello the first thing that we need to look at is the electrical box thats is outside and see if there are any more braekers tripped. the clue is that everything work except the heat. thats 208/230 volt and the rest of the oven is 115 volt. e sure to take the breakers and push them all the way to off then back to the on position. if thats is the problem now you are going to have to call a service man to check out what is shorting and causing the breaker to trip.

Whirlpool Electric Dryer Won't Start

Your dryer has a non-resettable "thermal safety fuse" part number 3392519 which stops the machine dead when the temperature near the heater gets too high. Typically a restricted vent system causes this so you definitely want to check that before replacing it. A failed control thermostat can also cause this so check the operating temp too.
