SOURCE: the lights are working for power and gas pressure

No, Try changing the tip. The one under thr node cone. If it burns back it will concave and increase the gap between the work and gun tungdten electrode.

Hi:

Your plasma has a start arc pilot inside the machine, this one must be faulty, check your owner's manual and request the part to your nearest welding store. It is easy to replace.

Problem: Gas flows continuously when power is turned on, AC indicator flashes 1. Torch switch is activated (closed) before user turns power on. a. Release torch switch. 2. Faulty torch switch a. Check torch switch for continuity. Replace if necessary.
Problem: Gas flows continuously; Torch will not pilot when torch switch is activated; AC indicator ON 1. System is in SET mode a. Change to RUN / Rapid Auto Restart / SET switch to RUN (up).

A Whirlpool Duet dryer, purchased new 11 yrs ago. Turn it on it runs for 5 minutes & stops. Sometimes have to wait a few minutes before it restarts. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?


Hello Jacquie Burgess,

Thermal cut off triggered - Part number 279973
(you MUST verify part number).

Sadly... I went out onto my favorite site looking for High-temp
cut-off or thermal limiters (ELECTRONIC)... but "APPLIANCEPARTSPROS" failed to RE-CONFIRM their very OWN number they gave out... wp697772

A direct call FROM YOU would be appropriate...

BETTER STILL... would be YOUR OWN part number from your
owner's manual...

However... the are MECHANICAL reasons your dryer may actually be reaching OVER-TEMPERATURE situations...

and your machine could be correctly shutting down for SAFETY REASONS:
TWO Principal reasons would be

- A BLOCKED dryer vent (usually lint)
- A Broken/Defective Blower

To check AIR-FLOW... You outside dryer vent should be putting out a POWERFUL stream of hot air..

If you do NOT feel that powerful air flow... disconnect the vent behind your machine and check it again there...

If there is a difference you HOUSE DUCT needs to be clean
(do this regularly to prevent FIRE DANGER).

Then...
IF no powerful air flow is felt directly behind your machine... your BLOWER IS DEFECTIVE (see below)


I had a similar issue on my Kenmore Elite (turned out to be a blocked VENT (BIRD: inside the MACHINE).

Else your HIGH-TEMP LIMITER is DEFECTIVE and needs replacing (possibly... WP3391914, (you MUST verify)).

Hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

Miller 350p welder gives a "help 3" code.



Code help-3 Indicates that the gun trigger was pulled and held during power up. Release gun trigger and clear fault condition. Also, this display can Indicate no open circuit voltage detected when gun trigger is pulled and no arc detected within 3 seconds, this means that the trigger was held without any metal contact. The machine will shut down in order to avoit the wire to continue to run freely.

To fix:

Turn on the machine without pressing the trigger on the gun. Then increase to the max the wire speed. Then turn off the machine. Press the trigger after the machine was turn off, then without releasing the trigger, turn on the machine and release the trigger after 2 seconds. That will take care of it.

I have a Lincoln Weld Pak 100 that was working fine. I shut down the machine though and when I came back to it about 5 hours later the wire feed motor wouldn't turn anymore. Has anybody else had the same...


Check the voltage at the wire feed motor when the trigger is pulled.

I had a Weld Pak 100 that with 0 volts at the wire feed motor, and the problem wound up being that 2 of the big power (stud) diodes were shorted.

Thermal dynamics cutmaster 50 2004 yr.


Check contacts in tip and be sure it is all lubed correctly. If you have good air pressure and flow it should arc after pulling the trigger for about 2-3 seconds.
