Question about GE Dryers
I have an older GE clothes dryer that keeps burning the wire that feeds the heating element where it attaches to the motor switch. unfortunately the wiring diagram on the back of the dryer is no longer readable. My local appliance parts store says the switch is no longer available so I need to buy a motor. I would like to make sure that the switch is the only problem before I replace the motor. For that I need a wiring diagram. Is there one available?

Most heating elements can be accessed by removing the back cover of the dryer. Please unplufg the dryer first before starting this project.

SOURCE: Ge Commercial Coin-Op Dryer.
When you replaced the motor, did you replace the relay? It sounds like you have done everything reasonable. I would try bypassing the coin operation part and see if that changes anything. Go back to the motor relay. It may be incorrect application. the part guys only know what the computer tells them. it may need a different one. I am assuming that when the unit shuts off you checked for power from the timer to the next place, according to the diagram.

Testimonial: "Ended up selling all of our commercial washer/dryers and going with a rental company. Best all around for our cost, man hours and headaches."
Yes it could be the heating element. However, it could be the thermal overload switch. This is located under the top of the machine. Bypass it to see if works. If it does, then it is the switch. If not, check the element. It sounds like this is the element with the 2 yellow wires.You will need to pull it to visually check to see if it is burned in 2.Check the element first since you have easier access to it. Let me know how this works.
