Thank you for your question on the table saw not powering up.

Without the model number I can only give you a couple of things to look at.

Please make sure that the outlet that the saw is plugged into has power.

If this is a belt drive model it will have a red rest button on the side of the motor. Push the reset to see if the motor will now start. (Sometimes you have to push pretty hard on the reset button to get it to reset).

If it is a direct drive model with the motor inside the cabinet then there may be a reset on the switch box assembly.

Please let me know what you have found and we can continue troubleshooting with that information.

The fuse is a good guess but the thermal fuse would only prevent the dryer motor from running. There would still be lights and a display. "Completely dead" sounds like you have no lights or display. Even the door switch would prevent the display from lights up. This likely turn out to be a bad connection or a bad control board. Let me know if you have a meter and are comfortable checking voltage and I'll help you check some things. The first thing is to open the door and see if the drum light still works. If not then the first place to start would be the two circuit breakers powering the dryer. You can even unplug the dryer and remove the terminal block cover and visually check for burnt or broken connections. Let me know what you find and will go to the next step.

Jeffrey: The dryer will likely need a user interface/console but If you could supply the model number of the dryer; I can likely provide additional information.

I can understand how important it is to have the right parts for your washer. From what you are describing it does sound like the new board has failed. The buzzing sound that you hear before the power loss, was most likely the wiring harness. It is possible that there was a surge in the system, which fried both of the board. I would suggest however, that you test the components for continuity before replacing any more parts. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

That link for a previous answer that Barbara posted in the above response has some general advice regarding this type of failure. The power to the vacuum cleaner head is normally supplied through wires that in the hose. That is probably why the power to the head dies when the hose is unplugged. As noted in that previous answer, you could have a problem with the switch, the motor or a number of other components that would cause this problem. I recommend that you reply to this thread with the full model number of your vacuum cleaner. We will assist you further once we receive that additional information.

Scott: Based on your symptom it sounds like a bad touch pane/control panel. In order to diagnose and confirm if the touch panel is faulty; the touch panel will need to be tested with an Ohm meter. I added an image below showing how to check each button.

The wiring diagram for this washer is shown in the image below. The voltage supply going to the control board is traced in red and blue. The first step in troubleshooting this problem is to carefully check the voltage supply going to the control board. This type of live voltage check is normally performed by a technician.

You should only conduct this test yourself if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely execute it

. That test is described in the second image.

Unplug the washer

immediately after carefully conducting that live voltage check at the control. If you are not comfortable making that live voltage check using a volt/ohm meter, then I recommend that you have a service technician repair the washer. Here is a link for the Sears Service website:

Sears Home Services

.

If voltage to the control board is okay, you can check the user interface key panel using the information shown in that second image. The washer should be

unplugged

when accessing internal components (other than that brief live voltage check described above). If the user interface control is okay and the control board is getting power, then the control board is probably bad even though it was just replaced. You could have a short circuit in one of the components connected to that control board. Before replacing that control board, you would need to check the resistance of each circuit connected to that control board for a short to the metal cabinet using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure infinite resistance between each connection on that control board and the metal cabinet frame. If you detect resistance from one of the loads on that control board, I recommend that you check the wiring and the components in that circuit.

This information may help you fix this washer problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details based on the technical information provided.
