Hi Mark,

I think there are a thermostat fuse inside the machine, you have to take of the top. You have two screw one in each corner where the filter holder is fitted and one under the lid with the water tank.

Hope this helps you.

Check EVERY segment of cord from the wall AC outlet to your machine.
Are there any power strips?
Are they turned ON?
Are any power strips overloaded with either too many things plugged into them, or a large power draining appliance?
I am certain you have already checked to make certain that

How to Verify Power from a 110V Outlet

Video about How to Verify Power from a 110V Outlet

  • The first step of troubleshooting a power issue with a machine equipped with a power cord is to verify that the outlet being used is working

    • This video demonstrates a simple method of testing the outlet

  • Make sure that the outlet and appliance have matching plug and receptacle before plugging in

    • Failure to do so could result in injury and/or damage to electrical circuit and/or appliance

  • This procedure is a quick and easy way to test the functionality of a 110 volt outlet

  • Plug in a small appliance such as the fan used in the video and make sure the appliance works

    • If so, you know that the outlet is not your problem

  • You could also use a light, small lamp, or radio for this test

    • Any small appliance that you can plug in and turn on and know the appliance is working

  • This completes our demonstration of testing a 110V outlet for power


Coffee maker doesn't appear to have power

Make sure the outlet where the coffee maker is plugged in is live. Plug in a different appliance to verify that the outlet works. After that, there is usually a power button on the back or side of the machine. If you still have no power it is probably a fuse that is inside the coffee maker. This is best left to a skilled electrician or appliance repair person.

No power to microwave


Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

Fuse intact in supply lead but Neff H5470NO appears 'dead' - nothing working and no indicator lights is there another fuse ?

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.


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.
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.


It does not turn on says safe


This message appears when you remove the Safety key.

Kindly provide me with the make and model of the machine?

Are you sure that the key is intact? Is it properly placed?


My display screen is rolling and nothing stops it. My computer says the printer is offline.

Try doing this procedure to correct the problem.

1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Unplug the power cord from any surge protectors or power strips.
3. Select a wall outlet to plug the product into. Test the wall outlet by plugging another electric appliance, such as a lamp, into the wall outlet and turning it on. Unplug the test appliance.
4. Plug the power cord into the back of the product.
5. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
6. Press the Power button to turn the product on.
7.Now check if its already working.

I have a Maytag top load washer model # Mav7200AWW. There is no power at all. I have tested the eletrical cord from the wall to the washer and there is power there. So it is not the cord. Still no power....

Below are some diagnostic hekp tips, courtesy of

I have included a link to the lid switch diagram, which is the most common failure part.
Also, it appears that there is no independent fuse in this model.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

My c4480 printer will not turn on. I checked the connection on back of the printer. I used different A/C outlets.


Try the following solutions if there are no light indications, no noise, and no movement from the printer when you turn it on.
Solution 1: Make sure you use the power cord that came with the product
• Make sure the power cord is firmly connected to both the product and the power adapter.
Plug the power cord into a power outlet, surge protector, or power strip.
• If you are using a power strip, make sure the power strip is turned on. Or, try plugging the
product directly into a power outlet.
• Test the power outlet to make sure it is working. Plug in an appliance that you know works,
and see if the appliance has power. If not, then there might be a problem with the power
• If you plugged the product into a switched outlet, make sure the outlet is switched on. If it
is switched to on but still does not work, then there might be a problem with the power outlet.
Cause: The product was not being used with the power cord provided.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Reset the product
Solution: Turn off the product, and then unplug the power cord. Plug the power cord back in,
and then press the On button to turn on the product.
Cause: The product experienced an error.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Press the On button more slowly
Solution: The product might not respond if you press the On button too quickly. Press the
On button once. It might take a few minutes for the product to turn on. If you press the On button
again during this time, you might turn the product off.
Cause: You pressed the On button too quickly.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
