Hi The dryer timer, located in back of the control panel, controls several things: the drying time of the clothes in the drum, the flow of electricity to the heating element, and the flow of power to the timer motor and the drum motor in the dryer cabinet. 

Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:

Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

Finbd the FOB that came with the car or go to the dealer for one. You won't be able to silence the alarm, since it's equipped with an internal immobiliser.

2003 Hyundai Elantra - diable alarm


YES!... with various system operating difference. Disconnecting the alarm does not disable it.. it only silences the alarm. You will still need the Keyless Entry System Remote to RESET the alarm to start the vehicle.

FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF


You can try 2 things. Unplug it for about 2-3 minutes and then replug it. It should reset itself. You can silence the alarm or muffle it. Silencing it should be hard. Disconnect it from its source. You may want to find out why it is alarming constantly. Have you called Sears and asked them?

We purchased an indoor/outdoor wireless thermomter Model # RMR382A and cannot figure out how to silence the alarm. It goes off randomly. How do we silence this alarm?


The device has two different alarms: One is based on the time and one is based on temperature.

To disable the time alarm:
  1. Press the Alarm button on the front until the "bell icon" on the display disappears.
To disable the temperature alarm:
  1. Press and hold the "Temp Hi/Lo" button.
  2. Use the arrow buttons to select the high/low temperature alarm.
  3. Press the "Temp Hi/Lo" button again.
  4. Use the arrow button to select "Off".
  5. Press the "Temp Hi/Lo" button again.
Please refer to the owner's manual as a reference. Hope that helps!
