Question about Dryers
I have power to the machine, and 24 volts to the circuit board at the front of the machine, but it will not start, and the controls, including the LED's are dead. I don't have a wiring diagram or any kind of flow chart.
If there was one with the machine, someone took them. The machine is only about 1.5 years old I think.
This is a Unimac commercial dryer
Model # UTO75NQTB1G1WO1
Serial # 0603000179
no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

SOURCE: WIRING DIAGRAM
The following link explains the proper wiring scheme for installing a 220VAC power cord to an appliance:
Make sure you also have a dedicated outlet and power source for your dryer. This means a single outlet with a single circuit breaker. Most homes are constructed this way to ensure safe operation of the appliance and to prevent improper loading. If you have questions, please let me know.
As far as a wiring diagram is concerned, most manufacturers place a schematic drawing inside the operator console of the appliance for troublshooting purposes. I hope this helps.

ck recalls on this issue.
there may be one.
do not buy samsung they are notorious for having problems.
sounds like the heating element and relay may have went out.
however if it does not start up at all it could be the motor itself.

There should be screws on the back side of the top panel that come out. Then the panel will slide out so that you can access the front controls.

check the main power and terminal block make sure there is power and no problems with the terminal block.
also a bad thermal fuse can cause a problem with the power check the thermal fuse and make sure they have continuity.the last thing to look at is the main control board these can cost up 150.00 dollars depending on where you get it.Bottm line yes i would say it is worth fixing
