The starting capacitor of this unit blasted. I need to replace it, but the rating of said capacitor is no longer readable. Can you please tell me the rating of said capacitor and where to buy it here in Singapore?

Re: Dryer Model: AD55HK
Ok you need Fisher and Paykel Part number 427616 it's a 7uF PRL M8 Stud. But any 7 uF 240volt AC Capacitor should work AS LONG AS YOU CAN MOUNT IT SAFELY where it won't hit anything or fall off it's mount. cheers

though there is power supply to the unit but don't start you have to check the door switch. if switch is ok and still unit don't start check the starting capacitor if equipped. replace if bad. if unit won't start even with a good capacitor and good door switch , then check the motor switch. if motor switch is bad replace the whole motor. switch and motor are sold together.thanks.
This dryer is what I like to call a 4 wheel drive model. Because it has wheels on the front as well as the back. To access the gas assembly you pop open the bottom panel. Strat the dryer and observe the gas assembly. You should hear a click and then the ignitor should glow. Next the flame sensor should trip and cause the ignitor to shut down. The gas will now be allowed to come out and fire off a blast.I have 2 home videos. on shows the operation and replacement of the coils. The other is of an electric model but shows how to put the dryer together.
The buzzing sound is the motor trying to kick in, the starting capacitor is not giving it the bust it need to take off. Just replace the motor's starting capacitor/power relay. Go to the following site, enter your Dryer's Model # to order it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Power-Relay/528722
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
you have a problem with a component called a capacitor.the capacitor stores an electric charge.this charge gives the motor the "kick" needs to start.if you have a faulty one the motor will hum because it cant turn.it should only be replaced by a competent appliance technician.
Just a quick question before I look at the control board myself. What are the values/ratings for the capacitor and resistor (ex. farads for cap, ohms for resistor, and volts/amps for both)? Or give me the Vender Part Number so I can look this information up. Thanks!
