Power to outlet dryer dosent run?

hello click this link this is a video on how to replace the thermal fuse in a maytag dryer which is one of the main reasons why a dryer when there is power to the outlet wont run. You can test the fuse by performing a continuity test with a multimeter or if you do not have a mulitmeter you can briefly connect the two wires that go to the fuse and then press the start button. You will also have to jump the door switch as well in order to get the unit to start. You would do this by taking a piece of wire and stripping both ends and connecting from one connection to the other. If you have any further questions or find that the thermal fuse is functioning properly message me back for further diagnosis. And if you do require further diagnosis please message me back the model number of your unit as well. Thanks again

Have 2005 yamaha roadstar wont start no power. Batterie and fuses are good any idea what would cause this

Here are a few things to try to help you diagnois your problem.
1.Check for corrosion on battery terminals and the fuses.

2.Fuses are good - Did you check the fuse on the top of the solenoid?

3. Take a screwdriver and jump the solenoid wires to start the engine. If it starts, then your starter is good. (could be a bad solenoid - but lets check some wires first)
Your solenoid operates when you hit the start button.
Your start button won't work until you turn the on/off switch on.
Your on/off switch only has power when you turn the key on.
4 Use a test light to test the following:
Right Handlebar switch house - Test to see if you have power to on/off switch - Turn your ignition key on & off to see the testlight come on - if light comes on that means your igntion switch is good. If no light, the problem is in the igntion switch. or the main fuse to the igntion switch is bad.

If the light came on then you have power to one side of the on /off switch - test the on /off switch by turning it on and off. When switched to on you should have power to the other side of the on/off switch which is sending power to the rest of the bike which includes your starter button.
Test your start button with the test light by putting the test light on the solenoid - Turn key on - turn on/off switch on - push start button and see if the test light lights up. If the test light lights up that means that your solenoid fuse may be bad. It is located right on the top of the solenoid. If the fuse is good then that means your solenoid is bad. Replace it with a new one.
If the Test light did not come on then your starter button is not making contact and needs fixed or replaced.

So follow the power with the test light until through each component until you come to the faulty one.

NOTE: If its a blown fuse, check your wiring. You'll have to find out why the fuse blew and fix it or your fuse will just blow again. Could be a short somewhere, installing a battery wrong will blow fuses.

Dryer doesn't turn on. Replaced the power switch

Power switch? Do you mean push to start switch? To see if you have a bad push to start 1st unplug. Open back top panel. Only do this test if you hae two wires going to the push to start switch. Wear gloves so you dont kill yourself. seriously. If you do have two wire then disconnect from push to start. Make sure they are not touching anything!!! Plug machine in. Tunr timer to 60 minutes. Touch wire together then pull apart. If machine kick on replace push to start. If not put everything back the way it was. Jump out door switch. If door switch is jump and still dont work then check motor test. Check harness on motor. If has a capacitor need to check with a cap. tester. You need a service manual to test wheather you have a bad motor. The manual will show you how to properly test a motor (each lead has ohms valve and you have to know what they are to test)

1998 GMC diesel Pickup wont start, replaced fuel filter, and fuel injector. still wont start what do you think the problem could be??

Using a test light, unplug the lift pump and jumper across the electrical terminals. Have someone turn on the key,you should have a light. No light means the oil pressure switch is a possible cause of the no start.
At the oil pressure switch jump the orange wire to the gray wire with a fused wire. your test light at the lift pump should turn on with the key on. This proves the oil switch is a problem. Then plug in the lift pump connector, it should come on. If not the lift pump is bad.

Wont start unless jump from starter

Check the safety switch on trans to see if the power is getting to it for the start circuit. If this switch gets old and worn it will drop the voltage so much that it wont start. If it does have voltage then check the wiring to the solenoid for voltage from the battery. The solenoid wire is easy to remove and test with test ligt and a second set of eyes to watch the light when you turn switch

Will start by jumping starter but wont start by turning ignition

Try starting it in neutral, if it won't start there put a test light on the inside small post on starter and have someone turn the ignition on to start if it don't light the test light( bright) than the switch is bad or there is a break in the wire or maybe a fuseable link is burnt.
