Question about Dryers
I installed a Hampton Bay Miramar II ceiling fan in my master bedroom a couple of years ago and it has worked great up to this point. I have it wired to use the remote and mainly use it to turn the light/fan on and off. I also use the switch at times. Recently the ceiling fan light stopped working properly. When I try to turn on the light, it comes on for a couple seconds, makes a clicking/popping sound, then the light turns off. I have to hit the remote button again to turn it "off" and then again to try again with the same results. I haven't tried anything yet, but it seems to be that some kind of overcurrent regulator is killing the light or something. What are some good troubleshooting steps?

you can test the light switch by temporarily hooking up the light bulb to where the fan normally goes ....the bulb will only work on the highest speed setting but can prove if the switch is bad or not . turn power off before woking in there ... if you know someone with a volt meter then they could quickly test the switch for you .. they can also test the motor for continuity .. .. most of the time the trouble is simply bad connections inside the wire nuts ... like insulation not skinned properly or wire not in the wire nut properly ..you can remove and inspect each connection (power off of course) ... sometimes there is a seperate power line for the fan and light ... so they can be independently controlled externally ... thats not needed when the pull chains are the only off on method ...

sounds like there is a lose or broken conection from were the feed to the balast slits from the main fan conection try rewireing from the live imput to the balast see if that solves it.

Hawk, the good news in looking at your warranty information on this dryer, it states that you have a 2 year warranty on parts only. You would have to pay the labor. There are a few possibilities here, but the pop doesn't sound good. Courtdate is probably right in his post. You would have to get into some detailed testing on the electronics to make the correct diagnosis, which we can do, but I suggest you call for factory service so you don't make any more trips to the ER.

I found advice on the Fisher Paykel web site that suggested the problem could be the door lock. In fact the catch had not properly engaged & when I fixed that the dryer worked.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet dryer will no start...the "sensing" light comes on when you hit start; it makes the click noise in the door when you hit start, it counts down, but it does not tumble or anything
you have a blown thermal fuse. you can get one where they have parts it is about 5 dollars.
