Electrcial circuit shorted by water; how do I find and fix it?

\015 I left a window open on the back porch and rain got in an outlet under the window. Now that circuit does not work. I guess the water ''shorted'' it out. How do I find the short?\015\012How do I fix the short?\015\012\015\012Also my dishwasher and disposal quit working after a spoon fell in the disposal. Did it overload the circuit? I pushed the reset button on the bottom of it and still it does not run.\015\012 How do I troubleshoot and fix these things?\015

Answers :

Try cranking the disposer with the handle provided and just get the disposer moving,make sure the power is off when you do this. reset the breaker and the motor overload switch located at the bottom of the disposer, return power to unit and see if that solves your problem.
shut off power to that circuit and remove the outlet, replace outlet with a gfci outlet and install a waterproof cover. reset breaker and good luck

I have Frigidaire FDB956RBC1 diswasher. I have to turn off the water to fix the faucet. When I turned the water back on, water did not go to the diswasher when I used it. The diswasher runs normal except with no water going into it. The water runs find at the facet. There is separate water supply underneath the sink for the faucet and the diswasher. I wonder if there is a mechanism with the dishwasher that stop the water from going into the dishwasher after the water supply been turn off. I did

It went thru the whole cycle and when I opened it up - there was water still left in the bottom - hit the cancel/drain button and nothing happened. Unhooked the drain line to the drain pipe under the sink and no water came out. How do I find out if it is the pump ? If I take it out - what do I need to look for and what trouble shoot things do I need to know. I live about one hour from the nearest town - so I would like to find out the problem - before I call a repairman and maybe fix it myse

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and

Good Afternoon We have a Kleenmaid DW8 dishwasher. At the beginning of the cycle, it will pump out the water, sit idle for a short time and then show the end light, without washing or any further action. A technician came to visit and had a brief look. A follow up call came from his company stating that the circuit board had a crack in it. It would require a new circuit board ($650), the dishwasher to be taken to the workshop and repaired ($150). Upon further investigation, the circuit board had

Customer bought house with a Viking Dishwasher already there. He has no user manuals or documentation with the model number listed. None of the stickers on the side of the door have a Viking model number. This unit is a Quiet Clean System with Auto Water Heating and is (he thinks) about two years old. How can I find out what the model # might be or better yet how do I find out the part # to fix the main control board / interface. It just keeps blinking.


Check the back of the unit for a tag.... otherwise - removing the clock... it should have a part number on it.\015\012\015\012Thanks! ... Dishwashers

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad

SHU 5316 UC dishwasher by bosch. I think it is from about 1998 or 99. It blew a circuit breaker yesterday. I reset the circuit braker, but it won't even power on. It may have burned something out. We replaced the control board 2 years ago. Please tell us: 1. Is it worth fixing again, or just replace? 2. Any suggestios? Maybe the pump has shorted? THANKS SO MUCH!! Mark

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped.

We have a n eight year old fully integrated asko dishwasher. Only the rinse cycle works, so I rinse many times - last rinse with detergent and then run the short program which does not wash, but will dry the dishes. The circuit board was replaced once before under warranty($500.00 labour) and I suspect that we may have to do the same again. Can we find this on the internet and do it ourselves; we have good electrical knowledge. Thank you in advance.
