    If you can, pull the battery out and test it on a voltmeter. First, leave the UPS plugged in for at least 8 hours. Then, carefully remove the battery cover and then the battery. There will likely be 1 battery with 2 leads, one positive and one negative. Be sure to note the orientation. Then test the battery on a voltmeter. If the voltage is less than 11.5 volts, the battery is likely bad. Even newer UPS's can have bad batteries if they sit around on a shelf too long. If it needs a new battery, will have the battery. Hope this helps.

Kenmore 800 dryer shuts down after running down to 40 minutes on the timer. When I restart it at that point it runs for about 30 seconds and shuts down. If I turn the timer back to 90 minutes it runs down...

Sounds like you may have a bad motor. If the motor is overheating it will shut down on its overload.

If its a shorted contact in the timer you could mark the spot where it stops and restart it again. It should stop exactly at that point.
