A lot of time a chemical smell is the result of blown capacity where the electrolitic is leaking out. Large caps are used in the moter start circuit and are usually located close to the motor. After awhile there will be an impact on the motor starting and the performance of your machine.
If it is the belt slipping you would get a burnt oil smell. If it was the blower motor or the drive motor it would be more of an electrical smell - burnt plastic type.
Yes, but there are several thermal limiters, they should reset when the unit cools, so likely that is not what is happening.... Forcefully turn the breaker FULLY off, and then back on, and test again...
The thermal limiters are located along the air flow path, typically downstream of your burner, the purpose is to prevent overheating and fire. These limiters stop the HEATING element and not the drum motor...
Hi, Verify that you have 220V ac at the wall . Inspect power cord for damage. Verify that you have 220Vac to the machine. If you have 220v to the machine then you may have a bad heating element or a loose or bad wire inside the machine.
What kind of noise when drum turns?
I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help in any way.
If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:BeltMotorDoor
switchBeltDryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the
belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and
often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same
time.Click here for a belt
installation diagramMotorIf the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start
button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:Remove the belt.Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate
manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.
If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with
the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt
removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try
to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem
with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it
again.If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with
the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to
replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.Door switchYour dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is
defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you
need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's
defective, you need to replace it. Thanks for choosing fixya...Regards, Joe
the motor is more than likely bad but just to be safe check the blower wheel and make sure there is not anything in it then remove the belt and try to turn motor if the motor feels real tight then you need to replace the motor
if coils is heating are you sure motor isn't running or just the drum not turning ? if drum not turning suspect belt ..if motor not running but element still heating suspect element is contacting outer case ..with coil touching case 110 volts is present even without motor turning if timer is turned to heat position element will not heat to capacity but will get hot enough to eventually blow element fuse
