Question about Frigidaire Affinity 5.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Brand new Dryer starts then stops after 15 seconds

Dryer stops after just 15 seconds of running and the lights begin to flash that are below the start/pause button . The dryer is heating, but will not continue running until you have pushed cancel and then start again about three different times. There is also a clicking sound coming from the backside of the dryer that does not sound right. I don't think the dryer should be making this sound. Please help!!!

Stop what you are doing. It is under warranty. This will be more costs and it is not necessary. It is a mfr problem.

    If this isn't a new dryer but I have the same exact problem, what do you think could be causing it?

    I believe the t'stat is bad just from the sound of it. It has a high limit control on it that keeps it from overheating. That is the design of a high limit control. If it doesn't function properly, then the result is either shutting off prematurely or worse not shutting off if it gets too hot. This is a blessing in
    disguise. If not the hi limit, then something is wrong with the computer board. Thankfully, you are under warranty. As far as the clicking sound, it could be the drum is not set right or the belt that drives it could be too tight or loose. Without hearing the sound, that would be my guess. Call where you bought it from and put it on them. This should be covered.
    Good luck, Bill

I called myself programming the new keys for my pt cruiser, but,it didnt take. At first it would start and run for a few seconds, now it wont turn over.what did I do wrong and how can I fix this?


Takes the master key to get it started again. The security gives you 3 tries to get the vehicle started, after the third time, it kills the starter.
2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Note: You must have two valid keys to add a new key to the system.
1. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position for at least three seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds.
Then, Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the first key.
2. Insert the second valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to
the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds. After 10 seconds, a chime will sound.
In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch
to the LOCK position and remove the second key.
3. Insert the new key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the
ON/RUN position.within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds, a single chime will
sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that
programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on again for
seconds and then turn off.
The new key is now programmed. The Remote Keyless Entry transmitter will
also be programmed during this procedure.
Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys.

Re set service light on a 2005 V 50


1. Press in and hold the odometer reset button.
2. Turn on the ignition to the run positon - not all the way to the start positon.
3. After about 15 seconds the orange "I" light (that warns the service needed message is present) begins to flash.
4. While it is flashing release the odometer button - if you do not do it in time the light stops flashing and will not reset.
5. Then turn off the ignition.
