Stops mid cycle, if I turn it on and off or move dial or let it rest for a while it will run properly and finish the cycle. Any idea what part needs to be replaced ? If yes, can the needed part be easily replaced ?
ANSWER Hello Joe,
There could be a couple of things that would cause this issue. Based on the information it sounds like the motor is overheating. Things that could cause this is too low or high voltage coming to the motor. You should have 120 +/- 10 percent vac. A stuck contact on the timer causing unit to send conflicting voltage to the motor spin and agitate signal. A bad pump that may be making noise and causing drag on the motor. Or a bad thrust bearing which is allowing the brake to not release enough and causing a drag. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
