Q:

220 to 120 volt conversion

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you with your question. I have looked up the model number you have submitted. This model laundry center is a 220-volt unit and cannot be converted to operate on 110 volts. If you have moved to a new location you could have an electrician wire a in a new outlet. This would be cheaper the buying a new unit.

If the unit could be converted to 110 volts the dryer would not heat very well and would take forever to dry the clothes.

Please feel free to reply below if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

GE profile advantium 120

A:

There may be a fuse in the microwave that is preventing it from powering up but that type of failure will need to be diagnosed and repaired by a technician. I agree with Marc in the above response. Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as replacing fuses, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

Q:

Kenmore front loading washer, model number 41744152400. It doesn't spin.

A:

Check that electrical outlet for the washer. Plug a small lamp or appliance into that outlet to make sure that it works properly.

That part 137005020 is the correct replacement control board for that washer. The reed switch for that dispenser is no longer used on that new control board. You can just position those dispenser drawer wires out of the way. The wiring diagram for that washer is shown in the image below with the voltage supply for that control board traced in red and green (actual wire colors black and white). I recommend that you carefully check the voltage on those wires at the control board using a volt/ohm meter. NOTE: You should only check that live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear proper safety equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking that live voltage. Unplug the washer as soon as that live testing is completed . If that control is getting voltage but will not power up then the replacement control board could be defective or you could have a short in one of the washer components that is dragging down voltage on the board so that it won't power up. If you are not getting voltage at that connection then you could have a bad outlet cord or a wiring failure in between the outlet cord connection and the control board.

These tips may help you determine the cause of this failure. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
