Start Switch Broke

Start switch, which is normally turned to the right and toggles back, was inadvertently turned too far. Now the switch rotates and does not start the dryer.

Is there an inexpensive way to repair.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Friend, Its easy to replace the start switch on your dryer. Just remove the four screws at top of control panel. You will need a start tip bit to remove the screws. Once removed just pivot the panel towards front of washer exposing the inner backside of panel. Now you can easily remove the screws that hold on the start switch and replace with new one. Happy to help, Tim. Please rate my help to you. Thanks.

    The part you need should be inexpensive at an appliance parts dealer. You can do it. It's a quick, easy fix. Tim

I have a Sears Kenmore elite model# 11072942100 that will not always stay running when pushing the start button, however if I hold down the start button and then turn the dial it will eventually stay


Rick,
Good call on the timer switch. If the teeth have worn at the start position, starting would be delayed until the timer is rotated beyond the worn area. The normal operation of the start button is that it should to be pushed in and held for a second, to prevent inadvertent starts.The problem could be related to the door latch. The door safety switch will make intermittent contact if the door is not completely latched. If the door has become misaligned from downward pressure, it may not be drawing the door in enough to push in the switch. First check the alignment of the door. If the door is low, try bending the hinges back up. Open the door just enough to get your fingers inside the bottom of the door and slowly pull up. If the door is better aligned it may push the switch in better. Close the door and try the dryer.Next try holding the door in with one hand and pressing the start button. If the dryer starts every time while pushing the door in, then the latch is worn and should be replaced. I hope this solves the problem.
Good luck

1994 toyata camry the alarm goes off and will not let me start the car.


factory security does not have toggle switches as far as I know so it is probably an aftermarket system. Try one of two things, turn the toggle switch the oposite direction with battery disconnected. Reconnect the battery and try again, the horn will beep a few times when you reconnect. try starting. If that doesn't work, disconnect the battery and turn the key to the on position and reconnect the battery and the horn will sound but will go off get in the car and try to start. It should start and run normally. shut car off, then you should be able to return the toggle switch to the previous position If this happens again turn the toggle switch to the opposite position with the batterry disconnected and turn the key switch to the on position and reconnect the battery and start when started go see a service that installs aftermarket systems and they should be able to reset it security system Hope this helps

Lg tv does not turn on


The 55lh90 has a vacation switch on the bottom right corner. It's a toggle switch that interrupts power to the power supply. Should just need to toggle that switch to the "on" position, and everything should be back to normal.

My anti theft went off after eating a meal at mcdonald. cannot stop it cant start car. took battery off for 3 days same thing happening went to start it it doesnt do anything no click no turn over theft...


Normally, putting the key in the drivers side door lock,
turning to the left, then to the right all the way
will unlock and disarm/reset the "OEM factory"
alarm system.

However, if your system is after market:

The Parking Lights Would Flash, A siren Is Going Off,
An LED Is Flashing As Well, and You May Have A Shock/Impact
sensor set Too High Too. Try The Following Procedure
To Disarm/Disable It.

To start with, you can identify which after market
system you have by using the FCC. ID.# found
on the back of each remote. Try a site
like WWW.REMOTES4SALE.COM
to track down the one you have in your hand.

Now let's put the system into overide mode.

As far as the valet/overide button, it's a hidden
device-switch, a little spring loaded micro button,
red or black possibly and is probably down under
the dash area, near your knee/leg. In some
remote start/alarm combos, the antenna on the window
glass will also have an override/valet button.
Older sytems will have a flip type toggle switch.

When you locate the button or switch,
turn on the ignition key, press and hold
in the button until the alarm chirps 1 time
(for toggle types, key on, flip switch in the
opposite direction, then key off)

This should over ride the system, and only the
keyless entry part, if installed, would still be
operating.

You would get a single chirp to confirm from the siren.
The LED (light emiting diode) light in the dash
should also go on solid. This is valet/overide/reset.
This should correct any issues like starter disable,
or anti-hijack. Your keyless entry, if installed,
will still be operable. The have it inspected for the
falsing issues you are experience at a local shop.

You would repeat the same steps to toggle
back into user mode.

On & off switch fell off or broke? How can I turn it on if the switch wont fit back in right?


If there are only two wires going to the switch you can unplug the heater and strip about 1/2 inch of insulation off of the wires and twist them together. Use a wire nut or electrical tape to protect connections.
If you can't find the right replacement switch you can use a simple toggle switch in it's place. Or just unplug it when you're done using it. I hope this helps you. Thanks.

I have a Aries desktop pc that will not start up i have done the fuse in the plug but still nothing is there a fuse in the pc its self and if so where?


Check to see if there is a toggle switch on the back of the case. You may have inadvertently hit the switch and turned it to the off position.
Try moving the switch to the opposite position and then try turning on your system.
If you need further help let me know.

If this solution was helpful please rate it.

Powerspec PC 7114, will not powerup by pressing the on button on front of unit?


Do you have a toggle switch on the power supply at the back of the unit? You may have inadvertently turned it off, try toggling it in the other direction.
If that does not work, you may have a dead powersupply or even a dead connection to your on/off button on thee front of the case.
