No Power In Rice Cooker Repaired
This Richsonic rice cooker came in for repair with the complaint of no power. Since the power cable and fuse were checked to be good, this means it was the internal fault and the rice cooker need to be opened for troubleshooting.
It was pretty obvious where the problem was once the cover was removed. As you can see from the photo below, there was a burnt thermal fuse.
When I checked on the burnt fuse with my digital multimeter, it showed an open circuit reading .
Visual inspection was used to check on other parts beside the main fuse. All wirings/cables, nuts and screws were seems to be in good condition. I concluded that only the fuse was the cause of the problem.
I had the stock for this fuse and the rating was 10 ampere with 250 volt…see the photo below:
Once the fuse replacement was done, I powered up the rice cooker and it got back to normal again.
Conclusion- If after powering up the rice cooker and the fuse still burn, this indicates there could be something shorted. Below is a video how electric rice cooker works:
