The light usually will be a code, if it stays off when the door safety is pressed the control could be defective or the voltage supplied could be compromised.

It will not turn on. When I unplug it and plug it back in the start light is constantly blinking. I checked for error codes and the 4 lights blink 9 times and the start button blinks 14 times.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Dryer has power but doesn't spin or heat up


Check to see if the door switch "clicks" when you push and release it. If the switch is bad, the dryer won't run. Here is the part in case you need it.

Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?


Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

Door not closed


not real clear on what you mean.
if your door is not closing try lifting up on it as you try. also lift the door handle and see if the latch mechanism is open.

if you mean that the doors are closed but the light won't go out then you need to replace the door jamb light switch, open each door one at a time and push the little button in the door jamb if the light goes out then you may just need to adjust the switch, close each door before checking the next, if you need to adjust it then here is a generic picture of an adjustable switch

if the light doesn't go out then you may need a new switch.

Fridgidaire dryer aeq6000es. won't start, beeps 3 times with error message dr


Hello
This code means the dryer door is not closed or the door safety switch is not making a good connection at times. The dryer door safety switch is in the opening of the door and when the door is closed the switch button is depressed. If the control circuit board doesn't get a signal that the dryer door switch is closed it will not allow the dryer to start.. Try firmly closing the dryer door a 2nd time when this happens, if that cures the problem you are good to go, if that doesn't cure the issue you must remove the front panel of the dryer and replace the switch. If you need a switch they are available from Sears Direct for about $15.00 Below is a picture of the switch that most likely used in your model and make, the button on top is what the dryer door depresses when closed..

Goodman FURNANCE, NO HEAT!


The red reset button on your furnace is a temperature actuated safety control. If the unit has not run in a awhile, temperature should not be a problem; therefore, it sounds as though you may have a failed safety device. Unless you can get the switch to reset without having to hold it in, it is best to wait until a trained technician can service your furnace. Your only other alternative is to bypass the device, but it is never advisable to bypass a safety. There could be a more severe problem that led to the failure of the safety device.
I wish I could offer some advice that would allow you to safely get it working for you and your family, but the key word is "safely".
There are companies out there that offer after-hours and weekend service. Some charge extra. But I would strongly recommend a Goodman installation company that might have the part on their truck. If the button is mounted on the burner assembly it is called the Flame Rollout Safety Switch. The Auxiliary limit control is located on or near the circulator blower. It protects the heat exchanger from overheating. I'm attaching a link to the installation instructions for your furnace. These include the sequence of operation and a wiring diagram. It also includes component location and details the function of each component. I hope you find this helpful and I wish you luck in your endeavor. :-)

RUUD Air Conditioner not turning on


Need to check the breaker to the unit at the electrical breaker box. You should have a dual 60 amp breaker that runs the unit. Also if you removed the front of the furnance on the inside the system will not work unless the front of the furnance is on. There is a safety switch that will not allow the system to run with the door off. There could be the problem if the breaker is on and electricity is supplied to the unit that switch may be out and need replacing. The furnance is operated on 110 volts the condensor (outside section) operates on 240v you need to insure that the proper voltage is supplied to both.
Since both units work together yet operate seperately if the furnance comes on and the condensor doesn't then there is an electrical problem at the condensor (more than likely the contactor switch) if the condensor comes on and not the furnance then there to is an electrical problem (either 110 volts not supplied) or the switch to the safety cut off is bad. Now if neither furnance nor condensor comes on there could be improper power to both or a bad thermostat since the thermostat activates both furnance and condensor. Good Luck on repairs
