WD1000 Cnn anyone tell me the color of the wires location on the thermostat, the small thermostat next to the large one anf the round preheat unit near by. THANKS

If I understand your question correctly . . .
Here are the wire colors connecting to the heater enclosure:
From the front, on the right side of the heater assembly (wrapped in shiny foil): First, the "working thermostat" (which cycles heat on and off to maintain 155 deg) - red on bottom, gray on top. That gray wire goes over to the right, connecting to either side of little round "overtemp - klixon" sensor, at a double connector (two gray wires). A brown wire goes to other side of klixon sensor.
At rear of heater assy is another klixon sensor and the ends of the heating element itself From L to R: Short black "jumper" wire goes from left connector (Klixon) over to far right connector (on heating element). Long black wire goes 2nd to L, and long red wire goes 2nd to R (again on heater).

Troubleshooting dryer

Fancy. I never worked on one this new but all of em basically work the same. If you look on youtube their is a video how to tear down a duet dryer on repair clinic .com. These dryers have a thermistor mounted where the old klixon temp control used to be. The klixon sends back changes in resistance to the control and that is how the control knows what the temp is inside the drum. If it is bad the control won't know the inside temp and therefore the dryer won't budge. The fuse which is mounted right next to the klixon could also be blown if the dryer got too hot because of the faulty thermistor. Of course ya could have a bad door switch or a bad broken belt switch. Duet dryer service manual

Flame does not stay on continues flame goes on then off then on

gas dryers typically just give bursts of fire and repeat these bursts al throughout the drying process. If the dryer works at first but then fails to come back on that is the solenoids. Any other problem is due to the heat control which on older models is done by a klixon on the blower housing. these newer models use a thermister. Thermisters change in resistance with temp changes. Most of yer problems is from the 4 wire klixons. These 4 wire klixons have a bias heater inside them that warms up the bimetal. This cause it to trip prematurely for knit and permpress. Over time the bimetal gets fatigued.

What does the temperature reach in my kitchenaid dryer mod# KEYS750GQ0

On cotton no more then 160f for permapress 140f or knits 130f
Older style dryers used a separate klixon for every cycle. Newer models with timers use a single klixon with a heater inside it to make it shut down faster for knits and perma and that is exactly what your dryer uses. It has 4 wires. 2 smaller ones that warm up the klixon and 2 larger ones that carry the heat. If you think the dryer has a heat problem I suggest you clean it up and replace the cycling thermostat.

I have a dayton hanging furnace that after a few minutes the fan stops and burner keeps burning then a few minutes later the fan starts again and keeps repeating this cycle. model 3E845. thanks.

On the side of the heat exchanger is a fan Klixon that turns that motor on when the temp exceed 110f on the side of the heater. maybe that thang is going out or your fan motor needs oiling and is cutting out on overload. Next to the fan klixon is usually a limit. Both look the same. The fan klixon will have a marking stamped into the metal such as F-120 the limit will have L-240.

Electical module to compresser burnt out

That is the compressor start relay and klixon. This happens most of the time when a unit os several years old due to the contacs on the relay and klixon getting loose from heat which causes more heat and then results in a failure. It can also happen when the compressor itself fails to start due to a failure of the compressor. The Klixon is a tthermal protector that controls a start winding period It heats up and then opens the circuit if the compressor does not start.

You did not mention any symptoms prior to your discovering the burnt electrical module so I am assuming there were none visible inside or out.

It is worth the effort to have this checked out by a qualified repairman. Many times it is as simple as replacing the start realy and klixon (interlocked as an assy when installed) Other than the service call and labor the parts required to attemot repair of this unit are less than $50.00. Once again it is worth an initial attempt at repair if the unit is less than 8 years old.

Refrigerator is clicking, won't run

Is this clicking happening about every three or four minutes?
It sounds like the klixon, which is a thermal/current sensing device which is under the electrics cover on the compressor. It is a metalic disc which if the current is too high, or the compressor case temperature too hot, will cause the disc to expand and will move from being convex to concave in shape. As it moves from one to the other, it makes a clicking sound. The usual cause of a cycling klixon is lack of refrigerant in the system which causes the compressor motor to cease which means when it tries to start the current rises too high and the klixon 'pops' which breaks the contact. It cools down, 'pops' again, makes the contact, tries to start, won't because it is seized, current rises, klixon pops out again, and so on. You need to get a qualified refrigeration engineer in to fix it, or if it is an old unit, bin it and buy a new one.
