A schematic will help you to troubleshoot electrical circuits. If you are fixing, repairing, or troubleshooting an appliance, use the wiring diagram that came with your appliance to assist you to repair it. The electrical diagram is usually inside the appliance. It may be in a plastic pack and stuck to the inside of the appliance. Once you find it on your appliance, you can then use it and understand what each symbol is and fix your appliance yourself. Here is another great resource for How To Read a Schematic.
