SOURCE: Dryer not working

Assuming the problem is associated with you changing the cord, it sounds like you have a wire crossed on the power cord. Double check how you have the cord installed first. If that is correct check your power to the dryer. Since you changed the type of cord, I assume you have had outlet replaced or have just moved to new house. If you have a fuse box instead of a breaker box, check your fuses. It takes two fuses for the dryer. If one of them blows, the motor will run but you wont get heat. The motor runs on 120 but it needs 240 for the element. I can't count how many people have bought a new dryer just to find out they only had a house fuse blown and nothing was wrong with their old dryer. If you have had wall outlet changed there could be a wire crossed in it.

SOURCE: How do you install a 3 prong power supply cord to a GE Dryer?

DO NOT CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD.
you can't change the power supply cord.
the cord came with the dryer is 240v. the three prong is 120v. the dryer will burn up. if you change the power cord without changing the regulator , motor, and the heating element.
you need to get a electrician to run a 240v double breaker from the panel to the dryer.

What a 240 plug look like


A dryer cord is smaller than a range cord and it also has a curve in the ground prong so that their would not be a chance to use the 30 amp cord with the 50 amp range. Dryer cords come in 2 differing styles 3 prong and 4 prong. typical dryer cords look like this:

Spectra profile performance jb960k0d1cc has power but neither oven and stove work


what type of power cord does your range have? is it a three prong cord or a four pronge cord. If it is a four pronge cord you must make sure that the ground wire is attached correctly on the back of the range. You can refere to your owners manual that came with the range on how to hook up the range cord.

I have a Heavy Duty Super capacity 5 cycle dryer 3 temp range. Dryer came with 4 prongs and my recepticle only has three. Can I replace three prong cord with a three prong cord and how do I do that?


Yes you can. The 4th prong is ground. Just make sure you have the device grounded in some way. So you have 2 hots...a neutral and a ground.

My dryer's power cord has 4 prongs, my wall socket has 3 holes, can I change the power cord, or is there an adapter to change from 4 to 3 pronges.


Un screw the 2 hex screws from the back of the dryer where the cord goes in.

There will be 3 screws that connect the cord to the dryer, loosen or remove them to remove the 4 prong cord.

A hardware store will carry the 3 prong cord you need, tell them it is for a dryer.

Re-connect the 3 prong cord to the dryer.

Plug in and test after you have installed the new cord.

Wiring for three prong power supply cord


If you desire to convert an appliance from a 4-prong to a 3-prong, make sure you reconnect the bonding strap and/or ground wire to the Neutral (white) wire at the terminal block.

I need to replace the dryer cord which one would be the correct cord


The correct cord can be found at most appliance or building supply stores. look at the receptacle for the dryer. If it is 3 prong or 4 prong, that is the determining factor for what cord you need, The Dryer is rated 30 amps, 220 volts, That is the rating of the cord. BUT the cords will be labelled in the packaging. there are two that are similar, Dryers and ranges . you want the one labelled Dryer.

I have a kenmore dryer model 11060212990, and the plug has three prongs, but the wall socket is a four prong. what do i need to do?


You will need to purchase a 4-prong power cord and convert the appliance to meet the needs of the wall receptacle. This is a requirement of the National Electric Code in homes that have the 4-prong receptacle. The following link explains how to convert your dryer cord from a 3-prong to a 4-prong:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

These rules apply to the conversion of electric ranges, as well. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
