Magic chef dryer wont start, doing nothing, bypassed all fuses that i know of and door switch, replaced timer, ck voltage both ends of cord, and both sides of timer, what am i missing?


Thanks for using FixYa. As you have already checked everything else then the issue seems to be with the Thermal fuse going bad needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means it is bad and you need to replace it. If you have also checked this fuse already then the issue is with the control going bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

It does nothing when i push the start button

if you have no power at all then ther is a thermal fuse that has gone need to lift the lid look in the rear for the heating element just to the right of the heating element.about three inches down the side of the can there should be two white wires going to the thermal fuse that is bad.
in order to check this with out a multimeter you can connect the wire together for a moment and start you dryer and it should get hot and start.the part number is LA-1053 that you can get from your local parts store.
let me know how this goes for you there are a couple of other problems but this is the first thing i would check the other two items are a bad door switch and a bad start button/timer

When i push the start button motor does not start

Ok, you have narrowed it down nicely and, this leads my to believe that you will need to replace the start button switch. this start button switch circuit board is damaged.

Hello dybarra_fami, first suspect is the door switch. Check the little button on the door & the switch it presses when you close the door. Merry Chrismas.

Dryer stpped working

with power disconnected
if any wire disconnected before any test, reconnect & test dryer, reconnect wires after each test
disconnect wires from start button and test, conduct when pushed, no conduct when release
if fail replace start button test dryer
disconnect wires from door switch and test, conduct when pushed, no conduct when release
if fail replace door switch test dryer
follow leads from start button to relay(relay is first device connected to start button), and make sure all wires connected at both ends. If any wires disconnected, test dryer
locate thermostats and thermal fuses on fan housing and ducts
individually disconnect wires from each and test. conduct good, no conduct fail
replace any failed thermal fuse or thermostat test dryer
if all prior test OK
replace relay, test dryer
