Compressor Does Not Seem to Start

My Sanyo BC-1206 is plugged into a normal wall socket and I can hear a periodic click (which I assume means electricity is flowing to the machine), but I never hear the compressor kick on. The fridge stays kind of warm as well. Is there something I can do to see why the compressor never kicks on?

Feel the compressor. if warm then it is being powered up and symptoms point to a compressor fault. it is also possible that the compressor start device is faulty. remove cover over compressor electrics and check for any distressed componants

I was given a battery charger that my friend dogs chewed the plug and leads from i want to know which side should the red and black leads go on .

I assume you mean the plug that goes into the 120VAC receptacle in the wall? and when you say leads, I assume you mean the leads that go to the battery. the leads are of course red/Positive Black/negative. generally the plug to the wall would not have black and red wires. it would normally be Black/hot, white/neutral, and green/ground.

if it has European colors for the 120VAC plug in the wall then it would be Brown/hot, Blue/neutral, and green/ground. (sometimes it may be green with yellow stripes or something like that)

The wall plug does not fit in the wall socket, it has weird prongs

If the power plug prongs are not the same as what you normally have, (assuming the prongs were not messed up, i.e. they are from a foreign country) you can get and use an adapter ... that fits the "weird prongs" on one side and has the "normal" prongs on the other side ... to plug into the outlet.

My cord has to be pushed in to socket and giggled to get the vacuum to have power? Any suggestions?

You might want to remove the electric plug from the wall and spread the prongs just a little bit, it sounds like the plug might be loose in the wall socket.....try it in another wall socket and see if the problem continues to exist...generally it you get the same result from similar wall may have looseness in the electrical plug...meaning that you might have been unplugging the cord by grabbing the cord and snatching versus unplugging with the plug itself. Hope this helps.

What does it mean when a gas cooker needs hardwiring

It means that it does not have a cord and a plug to just plug it into a wall socket...
It needs to be "hardwired" into the electrical circuit with a regular piece of wire...

My AEG oven does not heat up, nor does the grill work. The oven light and fan comes on when selected but the light located with the temperature control dial does not illuminate. This light normally...

I am supposing this oven/grille is electric, and is plugged in to a power source.
From your description, I'd say you have a serious problem and should no longer consider turning on the oven or the grille.
Having made that decision, take an electric meter and test the socket or wires that connect the stove/oven to the wall.
See if the current is flowing in both legs of the plug.
(Remember, two are "Hot", one or two are grounded.)
If not, correct the problem with the fuses or circuit breakers that are feeling the appliance.
If so, open the appliance up and test all circuits with that electric meter to determine the problem.
Often the problem may be a bad socket for the oven heater element, a bad element itself, or a burnt wire going to the element socket.
God bless your efforts.

Electric trips when switch on switch on socket

There is obviously an electrical problem that is causing the trip to operate try it in another socket, then check the plug , if o/k, then it is a case of open ing the washer up to try and locate the prob,
At this stage, it literally could be anything, from a faulty motor, faulty heater, faulty suppressor, the list is endless.
Plz rate my comments.
