Nothing comes on. Has power, door is closed, timer seems to be working but nothing happens.


If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

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?


Hi


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.


Thanks

Dryer stopped working, sounds like timer still running


I suspect it is the thermal fuse. Seen here. You will need to determine what caused it to blow. on these machines the blower wheel is notorious for getting loose and causing the element to over heat. This makes the heating element shut down faster and takes a long time to dry the clothes. 7fc125e.jpg

Dryer will not turn on after button is pushed.


HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer or control board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

I've got a Magic Chef dryer that will not start. But power is getting to it, I can hear the timer clicking...what should be the first thing I check?


The door switch must be checked for continuity. The thermal overload fuse near the heating element must be checked for continuity. If either has no continuity it is a bad part and must be replaced.

MAGIC CHEF ELECTRIC DRYER DOESN'T WORK. WHEN I PUSH THE ON BUTTON, NOTHING HAPPENS. POWER SWITCH IS ON.


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.
