Question about Speed Queen Dryers
SOURCE: Dryer voltage problem
The dryer should work ok on 208 volts. The drying time may be a bit longer than usual since at 208 volts, you will only have 5408 watts of heat. Your bigger problem is your three phase panel. You can hook up one "hot wire" from the dryer to any of the three 3phase wires, and the other "hot wire" from the dryer to either of the two remaining 3phase connections and you will have a good connection to your dryer. However, the third wire from the dryer is a "ground wire" which has no connection in the three phase panel, or at least you didn't say it has one. If you can pull a ground wire from the grounding lug of the service panel feeding your 3phase box, and connect it to the third wire on the dryer, you would have a safe connection.
At 208v, the dryer will pull 26 amps. Be careful and make the right connections.

SOURCE: Dryer won't start
belts, as in 2?? you do have an old speed queen. did you make sure the blower is able to turn freely?
if so then you most likely have a bad winding in the motor. it is costly to replace and you should go out and get a new dryer. too much money to fix this old unit.
by the way the model number is under the front panel in the center, on a metal plate.
doesnt matter since you know its 25 years old and its time to update.
