My dryer will run but will not get hot. Have checked the thermostat,
fuse, safety switch,cord, the heating element is not burnt any where. Can the element be bad if it is not burnt? Thanks
Answer Hello Peg. All the parts listed can be bad and not burnt. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
I accidently shorted out one of the live sides of the cord to the dryer body. Now the dryer will not start. Even the drum light does not go on. I have checked all the thermostats and the thermo fuse for continuity and they all pass. The door switch is also OK. There however does not seem to be continuity when I test the resister that is attached to the timer. Will replacing the timer fix the problem?
Answer Wilbert, The resistor assembly 31001484 doesn't really affect the start or running of the dryer, it's more involved in the heater and timer motor circuits. You should be able to read 3.7 K ohms resistance across the resistor, if not then it needs to be replaced. As for the timer 31001513 , not yet. It sounds more like you have lost L1 power(120 VAC) to,or in the dryer. You need to start at the outlet, check for 220-240 VAC, then check across the outside terminals of the terminal block on the back of the dryer. Then check the wiring from the terminal block to the motor and up into the control panel.
Will a timer. mechanism from a White Westinghouse m# de600adw2 work with jenn-air m# jde2000a?
Answer Hello Dan! Unfortunately, the two timers listed do not cross reference or replace on another. We can not suggest them as replacements. Sorry about that!
The timer quit working on my performa dryer. Could it be the resistor or the timer itself.
The resistor could be bad on the timer. The resistor should ohm out at 3.77k ohms. If not then the resistor is bad.
The dryer won't turn on, I can hear the timer but it won't start. Could it be the resistor?
Answer Hello Generic. You need to test the thermal fuse located on the side of the heater housing. It should read closed for continuity. If the fuse is bad, you will need to order the fuse kit LA-1053 and replace both the fuse and the high limit. You will not use the fuse with the yellow dot, it is for a gas dryer. If the fuse is good, you need to check the door switch. If it is bad, the dryer will not run.
dryer keeps tripping breaker. 30amp. also noticed that i can feel a humming on the dryer after resetting breaker and turning timer to setting BUT before i actually push it to start. when i pusu it to start, it will run approx 3 mins and then trip the bearker. breaker has been replaced twice
Answer Greg, Are you sure you have the proper amperage draw on the dryer circuit ? with the dryer running and heating your circuit should draw 20 to 24 amps at the line cord. If the dryer runs for 3 minutes before any problem arises I would have to think you have a wiring problem to the dryer, from the box. Have you dismantled and checked the wiring in the dryer or any visible damage, loose connections or melted insulation ? Thanks and Good Luck.
I have a jenn air dryer which works fine but the timer stopped moving the other day and now I have to move the timer manually to stop it.
Answer Hello Larry! The timer 53-1816 will need to be replaced. Unfortunately, this item has been discontinued with no further replacements or cross references available from the manufacture. Sorry!
