This may be a difficult problem to solve cheaply. I cannot find a manual for this fan. From a picture, it seems the switches are pushbuttons mounted on top. If they are individual micro-switches, they can be replaced (Digikey is a good source). Take the fan apart and determine if the switch can be unsoldered from a circuit board. If they are soft switches on a circuit board the whole board must be replaced. The only parts or repair source may be Sears.

Testimonial: "This is a 3 position switch w/turning knob. I know how to replace a switch. Guess I'll just take it out and go shopping at lowes or home depot. Thanks much., Bob"

My 46016 fan stop working


The fan should be working from the moment you push the on button, and increase the rpm's as the temp rides inside the laptop. In a laptop it is very critical in keeping the components from overheating and failing.

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

Dryer will not start when button is pushed. Maytag model # DE 610


HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

Whirlpool electric dryer (model #: GEQ8858EQ) will not turn-on.


Many times with wear the door switch gets broken with one slam. Check the door switch, it may need to be replaced with out it the maching will not turn on. If that is not the case then the start switch may be broken and need replacing. For Parts Call First Source Parts with your model number.
