can anybody help with a problem that i have with the fridge shorting my main supplies out. I think that i may have found the problem. at the back of the fridge there is some sort of timer switch, when i turn it around it shorts out at a certain point. the switch is located at the bottom of the fridge next to the black cylinder. the model of the fridge is an westinghouse silohuette frost free upside fridge/freezer. is it worth fixxing and if so is it an expensive problem to fix.

Re: fridge shorts power out
From your description it sounds like a short in the defrost heater circuit. It would normally be a repairable item. You may want to consider the age of the refrigerator before getting into the repairs.

Hi our tv set need to be serviced. Here are some tips: 1. Open main fuse. The fuse is clean but interrupted. You can try replacing it with one o the same value. 2. Fuse Blown or blackened. Short in the rectifier bridge or in the switching transistor. Out of the power supply: supply line rectifier (100/150V) shorted.
If the tv is still under warranty, this can be repaired at no charge.
However, if not under warranty, you will need to have the CAPACITORS on the main power supply circuit board tested (or replaced).
The capacitors responsible for the power supply can sometimes fail - open the back panel. If the capacitors on the main power supply board look too fat, or signs of burning near the solder joints, then you've found the problem.
Yes, the power is working as well as the processor seems to start up the circuit but it ends up with a protect shut down. So it is possible there is some error due to a fault or short within the main board and this might require fault finding using the circuit manual.Remove power remove the main board and look for shorted main capacitors, shorted drivers or open circuit of fusible resistors which can help with fault finding.
There is some short circuit further up in the power supply. You have tried what you could do. Let some Tv Tech do the job onwards. Or if you are handy with some basic electronics knowledge I could suggest something.
If power supply is good and voltage measures out ok. Also check any relays or capacitors.If LCD, check caps, if projection, check bulb and high-voltage transformer and flyback with a voltmeter. Capacitors are the most common reason for failure in today's electronics.
Hi I have a Samsung Tantus Dynaflat 32 inch flat screen TXN3298hf that all of a sudden stopped working...no power no nothing. We opened up the back and found that a 5 amp fuse had blow. This fuse regulates that power supply to the tv and can be found at the end of the power cord prior to the circuit board. Hope this helps.
NEVER EVER replace a fuse and think that va fuse will blow all by itself. The fuses are there to protect the set from catching on fire incase theres a short inside the set. Now in some cases an intermittant short can work after you replace the fuse but if its burnt black or brownish, theres a short inside the set in one of the circuits. always use a 100 watt light bulb across a blown fuse if your not sure if there is a short. if there is, the light will absorb the short and glow bright. if there is no short the bulb will glow bright , then go down very dim. you could have a main power supply problem, such as shorted bridge rectifyers,shorted main b+ capacitor, Hot could be shorted, or the Vertical or audio output IC could be shorted
