have replaced timer/motor and temp switch, still have unit runs some and will not start again brn wire from tim to temp swt is 50 volts causes motor to throw overload all wires look ok and spades look ok/tight?
Answer Terry, Apparently you have a voltage supply issue. Most likely a loose connection, or wiring issue to the dryer. We sent you a basic wiring diagram, so you can visualize and track the voltage through the dryer circuits and switches. Good Luck and Thanks
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.
