Motorcycle will push start but not ignition switch start


Does it turn over when trying to start? If no then it could be the starter, switch, or battery. Sounds like the starter, especially if you tried another switch.

Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

When the push start button is pushed in the dryer starts and every thing is ok until you release the button then all stops. I have replaced the bank of push button and just relaced the timer controls.


Good day,
Seems you've covered the timer and push to start switch.
If so then....
The principle the system runs on is, if the timer is turned on, 2 wires come out of it to run the the motor.
The first goes to the push to start switch and when pressed it sends power directly to the motor.
The second wire goes to the motor, but thru a centrifugal switch that must be up to speed before it sends power to the motor.
That is why it continues to run even when you release the start button.
The centrifugal switch is a part of the motor.
Either the centrifugal switch failed, or the power wire to it is disconnected or broken.

I have an older kenmore gas dyer. as soon as the door is shut it starts running with out pushing the start button, and it doesn't shut off till you open the door . is it the start switch or the timer that...


Good day,
It could be either the push to start switch, or the centrifugal switch on the motor. You would need an ohm meter to check the push to start.
The way the system works, is the power goes first to the door switch, and then the timer.
If the timer is in the on position, it sends power out on TWO wires.
One goes to the push to start switch, which in turn goes to the motor, bypassing the centrifugal switch.
The other power wire goes to the centrifugal switch, and thru it to the same place on the motor, but only if the motor is already up to speed.
That's why it under normal conditions it will continue to run when you release the start switch.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for using FixYa

Kenmore dryer...65852 timer switch does not work. dryer starts on its own when I shut the door and bi passes the push/start dryer button. Can a woman fix this?


Good day,
Ma'm I don't know your mechanical background. So you'll have to be your own judge
One cause could be the contacts in the push to start switch welded together.
Even though it might appear to go in and out properly, the insides of the switch are bad.

Remove the back cover of the consule. Remove one of the wires connected to the push to start switch, and tape up end to prevent shorting.
Plug machine back in and test. If it won't start, then the push to start switch is bad, and needs replaced.

If the push to start switch is not the problem, then it would be the centrifugal switch in the main motor itself. Here is a tutorial on accessing the motor. A major job, with some complications involving the blower wheel.

P.S. If the dryer performs normally other then the starting problem, there is no reason you cannot use it indefinately
There was a time when dryers had no push to start function.
Proceedure was, with the timer off, and door open, load cloths, set timer, close door. Works great.

Push to start switch only works when held in.


Go thru the back to access the push to start via 1/4 inch screws. More than likely the push to start isnt the problem with the heat issue. i would lean towards the motor relay and the heater relays that are on this unit
