How do I repair a shorted white wire connecting the plug to the machine?

The plastic part that connects the plug to the machine has melted. What part(s) should I purchase to repair? Is this conceivably DIY or should I call a repair service?

Repeated melting of wiring harness of brown/white wire connection. replaced/spliced into new pigtail. Now blowing 15 amp fuse to instrument cluster,tail lights. Any ideas?

If the wire and connection keeps burning /. melting, it would suggest that whatever that wire is supplying power to is overloading the circuit. Trace the wire to see what it is powering and check if the component has shorted / jamming. Normally however, if something is shorting or overloading the circuit, you would expect the fuse protecting that circuit to keep blowing.

Hi. Yes it is possible to connect the wires with wire nuts. (Without tape! / tape can melt) You must use ceramic / porcelain wire nuts (white) in HOT areas. Make sure it is a clean connection with no copper strands exposed The plastic ones will melt like your connector did. Most appliance parts supply stores will have ceramic / porcelain wire nuts.

Here is a source for ceramic wire nuts if you can not find them. (15 ea / pack) $5.65 +shipping

Electrical Short in Printed Circuit Board.

Hi, do you know what these wires were for? You can bypass the board, but if the wires are for lets say the blower motor and you bypass and put them to direct hot legs, you will run all the time, or what ever shorted the block in the first place must have a short. Its probably in the wires at this block and if you apply it to 120 volts it may fry again. I would follow these wires back to see what they run first. Yes, it can be done.

One of the connections is shorting and melting the plastic the plastic on the wire is also bubbling, how do we fix this as the lights are also not coming on from that connection.

The connectors get loose and corrode over time, resulting in a high resistance connection that produces a lot of heat, melting the connections, as you have witnessed. Cut back the wires to good insulation and splice them with waterproof splice connectors or waterproof wire nuts from the local hardware.

You'll need two connectors or wire nuts. Each connector will connect 3 wires: one wire IN from upstream , one wire OUT to the next light, and one wire to the light.

Since the voltage is 12 volts AC, polarity doesn't matter, however, if you look closely at the cable, you'll see that one of the wires has ridges.

Now is also a good time to check the connectors on the other lights.
