timer sends 58 volts to temp switch and to motor; why
Answer Terry, This is a "normal" operation. When the coin slide moves in and the timer cam moves, it closes the circuit on timer switch "A" . When the switch circuit closes, and feeds 120 VAC to both the temperature selector switch, to the "SW" and "AH1" terminals to control the temperature, Hi, Med, Lo. It also supplies "L1" voltage to the motor thermal fuse and motor. The question would be why only 58 VAC ? are you sure you have 220-240 volts to the dryer, and 120 VAC on the yellow wire terminal on the timer switch "A" ? If you have 120 VAC on the yellow wire terminal and 58 VAC on the other wire out of the timer, You'd have a bad timer switch,a nd will need the timer 279737 . If you have 58 VAC to the timer switch, then you have a loose connection, damaged wire, or improper power supply issue. Good Luck and Thanks
What will cause the timer to keep running, Even after it ran through a cycle it will still keep running.
Answer Hi Chuck. Yes, If the timer contacts are shorted internally, it will keep the timer running. The power starts from there. Part # 279737. Thank You.
How do I make the time longer for drying clothes on my coin op timer?
Answer Hello Mary, you will have to purchase a new timer wheel for the current timer. You will have to locate one at your local commercial part dealer. Thanks
