Make sure you are on contacts that are meant to go straight through before you do a continuity check. The other thing you need to do which will be more useful is to find out what the voltage is supposed to be at each point. Then check your voltage draws. That will give you a more accurate assessment of which component is bad. With the heat sensors, you can bypass them for testing by taking them out of the loop. This will cause the dryer to run again but you have found the part that needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: asko 700 model dryer has no power

If you have done all of the above, check your on off switch. It may not be getting or letting power in or out.

Bingo. I have the same problem. It is called the Thermistor and it "blows" if subjected to over temperature or high voltage. Found it as part # DC32-00007a for $8.95 s/h on

SOURCE: Motor won't spin, belt is good, drums turns by

if you thermal fuse is gone then the dryer will not start(you can bypass the fuse by taping the wires together and test it, then buy a new fuse as if left bypassed it will cause a fire), it is recommended to change both. Here is a picture hope it helps Tim:

Hi Tony:
Basic answer is that there can be 2 problems;
1) The bulbs are no good. Test with continuity meter or jumper wire from battery.
2) There is no power getting to the bulb. Test with voltage meter at the socket.
If there is no power getting to the lights you have to trouble shoot by checking for power at the fuses, light switch, and the wires to the lights.
Patience and logic.
You'll find it.

I have a 93 Nissan pathfinder, the rear window defroster dosent work,how do i trouble shoot and repair it. also, i cant seem to get the cruse control to work, how do i trouble shoot and repair it. tha

The rear window defroster can be tested by checking for power out of the fuse box to the switch which operates a relay usually 4 pin 2 pins are the controlling side and the other 2 are battery power and the window element wire. Some switches have a led light in them that shows power is completed thru the switch . With a volt meter test wires at rear window some times if to many breaks in the grid stops the system from working. the cruise control has a servo with it's own throttle cable check for broken cable and check for engine vacuum to servo. then test switches on steering column with a ohm meter for proper continuity and test brake light switch.

No tacho,fuel gauge, odometer & no temp gauge

To trouble shoot, you will need a good multi meter. Start at the source side of the distribution panel, prior to all switches and fuses. Is there voltage to the panel. . If not, look upstream. If so, check for voltage on the source side of the fuse holder. Continue this process
to each device in question. You will eventually find where the problem originates.

My screen is black but i can still hear sounds

the back light are not comming on. hard to say why. i have seen it be the main board or the power board or the inverter board or the panel. it takes some indepth truoble shooting to find out which. voltage checks are required . if you have a good multi meter, and some experience with live electrical components. it is possible for me to help. there is enough voltage on the inverters when they are hot, to light one up...if interested please post and i will walk you through a basic trouble shoot.

03 intrepid not charging new alt pcm battery all connections good .power up field wire charges ok?

A good multi meter would do you some justice it sounds like , from new components and statement sounds like a missing ground , if the motor has been swapped out check all the fram to ground connections as well as any moter mount ground bridges , a charging system is rather simple (make a complete circuit) , wire harnesses make this a chore to trace down but provides a factory working condition ,. To just trouble shoot charging is done with the field wire to batt pos , and earth (ground) to alternator case . good luck!

Battery keeps dying in my Kawasaki 900

possible reg/rec issue or the stator....if you have a multi meter you can check the stator by unplugging and hooking up to the stator (component side), set multi meter to volts a/c and connect each plug for voltage. then do a residence test on the stator.
reg/rec issue, make sure you have proper ground, do a diode test to make sure that it is d/c and not a/c

How so you know if a thermal fuse is blown on a kenmore dryer?

The thermal fuse should read a short (0 ohms) like any other fuse if it is good. If it blows it will read an open (infinity). Just make sure you disconnect the terminal leads on the fuse when measuring to ensure you're not reading resistance from parallel paths.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with a model number so that I may be able to provide better service. I hope you find this information helpful.

KLH Rave-12 speakers - some drivers are not working

If you place an ohm meter across the capacitors, the ohms should slowly drop as the capacitor charges. You can check continuity of the coils with continuity function of the multi tester. is a good source for quality components.

Duet seriers trouble code fh have check flow meter with multi meter and pressure sensor ,seem to bench test ok water supply good .continues to code . pres sensor may not be recieviing request all line s...

With that code we want to check alot of stuff. Pressure switch and hose, flow meter, inlet valves and supply. I always pull the flow meter and hold my leads to the sensor and blow into it, a ohm meter will progress from 0 to around 40k ohms. the pressure switch has suds sensor and a pressure switch. The hose should be inspected by pulling the back panel and starting from the bottom check for worn spots or deposits of black granules, also blow through it to make sure there is no deposits. If you look at the contacts on the flow meter they are numbered 22,24,21,26,11,14,12,17. 24 to 21 should beep when air pressure raises as well 11 to 14. If you are carefull to blow softly you can test each for continuity, if no beep replace. Also your water inlet valves should read between 860 and 950 ohms roughly, any reading in the k ohms or below 600 ohms is a replace item.
