The first thing I would check is the lid switch, then if that proved to be ok I would go for the fuse. On most dryers the fuse is wired in the same circuit as the lid switch. So when you open the door the dryer stops right? If their was a probo with blockage and that dryer was getting too hot then the fuse melts and ends the connection stopping the possibility of a fire.If that was ok I would look at the timer or the motor as the problem. However the timer would be the LAST thing I would replace.

Frigidaire Crown dryer will not start. Has power to it


Check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Dryer will not start and it has power to it.


Hello jmhbfdtk4,
If your dryer has power and will not start when you press the start button, you may have an interlock that isn't made to allow it to start. It could be the door switch, a non-resettable fuse inside the dryer or something else. Are you getting any error messages on the system? Please advise and I will follow along with you...
Regards,
Rick
