Question about Dryers
I have a Kelvinator series 500 clothes dryer. The clockwork timer is sticking (failing to tick). How do you get it out to clean it?Thanks,James

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch.
A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is
not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever
breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you
need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door
then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking
the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece
with 2 wires attached.

Check thremal fuse on the exhaust duct. It is a safety which blows when your exhaust temp reaches 250 degrees. It is the one with 2 blue wires going to it and is located on the exhaust duct. If it is blown you will also need to replace the operating thermostat which is right next to the thremal fuse. Then check your dryer venting for obstruction as this is often the reason the fuse blows in the first place. Also make sure that power is getting to your dryer. You might have blown a breaker.
