The thermal cut-out is located on the side of the heater housing assm. To gain access you need to use a putty knife to depress the two spring clips between the top and the front panel and raise the top. The heater is on the back wall. The part number for the t-stat and thermal cut-out kit is LA-1053 and is about $20.00. Don't forget to clean your vent, and check your blower assm. Either one could have caused the problem.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking TCOs or thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

The TCOs you need to be concerned usually with have all black or white wires only. Please reply with photos of your interior if you have questions.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

SOURCE: Amana Radarange model ACO1860AS- does not work at all

That model would be ACO1860AS-, not AC01860AS by the way. That will make it easier to find info on it.

Chances are the heat from the stove top (when used without having the hood vent exhaust fan on as required) has blown the bottom thermostat/thermistor (called "Thrmst-fix" on the part list) or maybe the oven cavity thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Your owner's manual includes the installation instructions and can be downloaded here.

First check to see if you have afloat switch inside the air handler ar underneath the air handler. Its purpose is to shut the outside ac off if the drain stops up. Very common. If this is OK take cover off unit and with screw driver push in the contactor. It is located about the middle of the panel. It has main power at the bottom. If unit comes on you cave a control voltage problem. Meaning something is not allowing 24 volts to the contactor. If your out of Refrigerant the low pressure swich will have it off. Call a service tech. Rusty

SOURCE: electric lawn mower repeatedly trips house circuit breaker

The breaker is tripping because there is a short in the mower electrical circuit -- most likely in the motor winding -- it overheated.

If you have a multimeter measure the resistance (ohms) of the motor winding by putting the meter probes on the two flat prongs of the power cord with the mower switch on. If you get near zero ohms, the winding is shorted -- motor "burned up".

Using the multimeter again, check for continuity between the round ground pin on the power cord and each of the two flat prongs. If you get continuity on either of these, there is a short to the mower chassis. This can probably be corrected without much expense.

My bet is on the motor winding being shorted.

After a local power outage when power was restored the Jenn-Air double oven model W256W display appears dead also lights off in oven (acts like no power to the oven) circuit breakers fine. Any ideas?


Power it down and measure the voltage, you should have at least 220V. It sounds like you may have lost a phase. If you have the voltage connect it and see if the problem clears up, if not call a service person.

Out of the blue, the power is gone in a couple of rooms in the house, I checked the breakers and they are good. any ideal?


There are many possibilities if you have an older house like mine there are two horizontal aluminum or copper bars all the breaker switches are hanging from Careful push and or jiggle the breaker that is responsible for dead rooms If lights flicker the breaker is probably over loaded and bad as well as cooked that spot on the horizontal mounting hot plates I say hot cuz of main is on they are powered If this is case you need to split the rooms onto more breakers and not use the burned spot that is where you current switch is this is not up to code but if what Im saying is right neither is your house and it will keep you from burning down Side question had your power been flickering in those dead rooms before complete outage Brownouts If yes this backs my thoughts

Our Ruud ac won't come on after a storm and power outage? I have flipped the breaker with no luck. Any suggestions?


there is a fuse on the circuit board on the inside unit. Typically a power surge will pop it. checking that fuse is the best place to start

Main breaker can't be stitched back on after neighborhood power outage in our home, yet all the neighbors have power except us! Why are we the only ones without power?


You're trying to load the entire house on the main breaker all at once. There significantly less stress on the main breaker if you start it like this:

1) Shut off all the circuit breakers.
2) Turn on the main circuit breaker.
3) Turn the other circuit breakers on, one at a time.

Good luck!

Try reseting it by unplugging it. Also is there any display lights on (troubles). If that dont work it might have fried the circuit board in the black out.
