Advice on how to get fan off motor shaft on Kitchen Aid Gas Dryer

Hi,
I have a Kitchen Aid Gas Dryer Model: KGYS750GQ1 that is having a motor problem.

I want to take the motor out of the Dryer chassis to bench test it but I cannot disconned the fan on the rear motor shaft.

I cannot find any documentation on how to get the fan off the shaft.

Is the motor shaft threaded and the fan screws onto it? Is there a special release mechanism?

Please advise.
Thanks Robo

No special tool, but it is reverse threaded!i usually place a vice grip over the plastic portion of the fan and with a monkey wrench onthe motor pulley im able to break the connection free, REVERSED THREADS gets me every time!

Kitchen Aid Dryer Gas/Front Loading Model KGYS750JQ1


Does the noise stop when you let off the start button? If so you either have a bad motor or something has gotten into the blower keeping it from turning. If the motor is running but drum not turning, you have a broken belt. Please post the complete model number from the dryer and I will try to help you with diagnosing and repairing the problem.
Thanks/Mike

It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, dryer coils, heat sensor,or igniter. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

Kitchen aid dryer Partial drying the cloth


First you should make sure the exhaust vent and ducting and lint trap is not clogged or restricted, birds/insect nests, or lint build up. If the dryer is heating up it is most likely an airflow issue.

Kitchen aid kgys750gq0 works but there is no heat


The KitchenAid KGYS750GQ0 is a gas dryer, so the solution of looking for a heating element is not helpful. There are several heat switches and a gas burner assembly (which includes a gas valve and an electric ignition), any of which could be the problem.

Trying to locate heating element on kitchen aid dryer


Do you have the part number, is so Put in (Find kitchen aid dryer Part# 111111* ) Or( Find kitchen aid dryer heating element* ). If this is a old dryer some parts are not made anymore. Any Dryer over 7 years old is no longer energy efficient. Hope This Helps.

Gas Dryer not drying efficiently


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
