Do This First When Any Appliance Won’t Turn On
Make sure it is plugged in and turned on.
If it is turned on and plugged in but won’t run, check the circuit breaker or fuse.
Reset a tripped breaker or replace a blown fuse, wait a few minutes and try the appliance again.
Even if you decide to call a repair service to diagnose an appliance problem, consult a website such as RepairClinic.com or AppliancePartsPros.com, where you can read about symptoms and likely causes of common problems in the popular brands of most major appliances. Also share your experiences and get valuable tips by looking in on the Household Tips community group.
