my timer control knob does not turn towards off when running. can you tell me why and how to fix the problem to turn the dryer off when done drying. I have to do it manual to shut it off. I have replaced timer already.
Answer Hello Rick,
You will want to do some voltage testing with unit running on the timer. You will want to check terminal TM to chassis ground for 120 vac. Check from X to chassis ground and check from AD to chassis ground. All these should have 120 vac to them. If you do not have 120vac at the TM to chassis ground then you have a faulty timer and needs to be replaced. If you do not have 120vac to terminal X to chassis ground then you have a bad circuit to the motor and if there is not 120vac to the AD to chassis ground then it is a bad heater circuit. You will need to check to make sure that if it is the motor or heat circuit that you check for broken or loose wires. Then you will have to trace back from that point. Your wiring diagram will give you points in each circuit to test. 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
