We just recently installed a harbor breeze ceiling fan w/light and remote. During a storm the lights just quit working. What can we do?


Power outages cause ceiling fans to suffer memory loss. The basic "cure" is to disconnect fan power at the source and, while waiting a few minutes, remove the remote battery and press all buttons to verify that none are stuck. Reinstall the battery and test operation. Other factors may affect restored operation such as using wall switches and pulling the chains. The simple brain in the fan canopy can't remember switch and/or pull chain settings at the instant of power loss.

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.


Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!


This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

Had a power outage and tv was on when power came back on , heard a pop , now tv has no sound ?


If you have one of the newer flat screen TV sets; power the TV off and then unplug the set from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes and then plug the TV set back in and then power it back up. Lots of newer flat screens have a power supply system that will not reset properly after a voltage spike or a power outage that is a short duration. By unplugging from the wall outlet and letting the power supply drain all the way to a zero (0) setting it usually resets ok when you power it back up. good luck, Dennis

Lightening caused surge protector to "spark" but no power loss, and everything plugged in works except the Samsung HDTV


Hi, In a lighting storm you are supposed to unplug your TV. In this case you may have fried something on main board. Take it to repairman. Good luck.

Spark ignitors won't stop sparking Kitchenaid KDDT2078WH


I hope that you have unplugged the range from the wall... Until this is resolved, you need to remove power from the stove. Use a lighter (long nose type is best) until this is corrected.

To identify the exact cause, you will need to expose (one at a time is ok) each of the contacts assoicated with the burner control knobs.

Each burner control knob has a setting (ignite) that closes a set of relay contacts and allows the igniter transformer to fire all of the spark-gap igniters. Since they all "spark" from any knob, you must isolate the knob that has the short circuit in it.

So do the following: (WITH THE POWER PLUG REMOVED FROM THE WALL....)

1. Expose the back side of a knob.
2. locate the press on wire on that knob.
3. Remove that wire from the know and place it on a piece of paper toweling (to isolate it from any metal).
4. Plug the stove into the wall and listen for sparking.
5. If NO sparking is heard, you have located the bad knob. If spark IS heard, unplug the stove and restore the wire. Move onto the next knob.
6. Repeat steps 1 - 5 until the spark does no appear.
7. Repair or replace that faulty knob assembly.

Let us know of your success.
-Jim

Emerson tv lost the ability to power on after a storm


I would probably look at the internal fuse that protects the power supply inside the tv. The storm probably sent a power surge through your outlet, your breaker may not always work correctly, especially if the breaker is old. The fuse should be inline with the hot side of the AC power to the power supply circuit. You would have to open up the tv, but you would be able to spot the fuse very easily. Fuses are cheap, but getting to it may be a problem

Power outage this am. Wii won't even turn on


Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.

Try the following steps in this order:

FIRST:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.

SECOND:
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it

THIRD:
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one

FOURTH:
- get the unit repaired

MUST DO:
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).

Hope that helps!

Power outage now microwave won't work


Most likely blew internal fuse. Pull the top/side cover off and check the line fuse. It should be behind the control panel in that area.

My MP830 did the same thing today. I thought it was toast. However through a Google search I found the following suggestion.

Unplug the MP830 for 20 minutes or more. Plug the MP830 back in and hit the power button.

To might great relief my MP830 powered up and is working just fine.
