How to trouble shoot the fan after it was exposed to spikes in the power supply

The power company corrected the power problem and restored the power to a constant 120 or so volts. The fan has a pressure control switch that comes on and switches off when the dryer finishes drying. after the power spike, the fan will not come on. It is getting power.

You have an owners manual with a trouble chart
to follow?

If you pay for service, they won't come for two weeks,
& then leave for a week, until the parts come in

The parts come in one day ,they come back in one week with
them,now you got no dryer for three weeks

Need to diagnose this yourself

If you have the manual & wiring diagram, you may have
to test down to the circuit control board, as I did with a
washer, not a year old

I had no power spike & it failed & all tests passed in the
diagnostic manual,just had to go for the board

Doubt the fan is ruined from the power company issue

The electronics are more likely

SOURCE: Dryer not drying

The is for a WTA3500. Not sure if its the same as the 3510, but it couldn't be too different.
You have to remove the back cover. (Make sure the power is disconnected first, of course.) It's about a dozen screws, no big deal. Once the cover is off, you'll have a view of the heater unit and the blower. The heater unit is a box in the center of the drum with some wires running in and out. On that box is a circular black piece with a red button. Just push that button, and put your cover back on.
You should probably check for any obstructions in the exhaust channels  that might have caused your dryer to over heat while you're at it.

SOURCE: maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but

Most electric dryers run on 110 volts, but heat on 220 volts. Unit needs to be wired to 208 to 240 volt, 30 amp circuit to Run and HEAT properly. Motor, interior light and controls run on 110 volts, neutral (white wire) and one hot wire, usually black. The heater works on both 110 volt hot wires, usually one red and one black wire. Unit can be hooked up to run and heat on 110 volts but will allways take two or three times as long as a 220 volt setup. It is producing half or a little less of its 5600 watt rating. It takes three things to efficiently dry clothes: heat, air flow and tumbling action. Remove any one and the unit runs much less efficiently. If you need a dryer to run on 120 volts, buy one that says 110 - 120 volt operation only, but it will still take up to two hours or so to dry a load. Brent

SOURCE: dryer motor will not start

Did you check the push to start button for continuity? i tried pulling up a wire diagram for that model. but every one ull up i cant read what color wiring it is because it to small of a print, but i can see the rest if the components fine. The wire diagram that i pulled up shows a thermo fuse inline with the motor. That is also in line with a belt switch. By any chance, did you see a belt switch down there? Its should be a little switch by the pulley. if so, check that. If you do have a belt switch, make sure your belt isnt broken. which probably isnt because you would of noticed that right of the bat. But yeah, i think i see the fuse your talkin about that is inline with the motor. Hopefully the wire diagram that i keep pulling up is that dryer you have. You said that fuse is reading "OL" on your meter when its set on ohms right? If it is change the it out. If it reads 0.0 ohms, that fuse is good. I like to use the ohms setteting on my meter when checking stuff like that out. But yeah, like i said if your dryer has a belt switch down there check it out also. If your belt is in tact, just unplug the wires to the belt switch and ohm it out, should be 0.0 ohms for good switch. But if your belt is broken(which i dont think its not) you would have to pull the switch up and ohm it. (Like if you had belt tension around pully.) But yeah, check the push to start switch, check that fuse again, and check the belt switch(if its down there by the idler pully) 0.0 homs for good switchs, "OL" for bad for bad ones. I know i typed alot. sorry for this long story. But hope this helps..let me no what happens...

SOURCE: Dryer won't stay running

I had the same problem with my kemore. Thank goodness I still had it under warranty.
The tech said the door latch was just slightly ajar. This is common he said that when we take clothes out we let the door close to hard or gets ajar for leaning in to take clothes out.
He readjusted it and I have never had a problem with it again.
Hope this helps

PC turns on and fans blow screen will not come on

I had the same problem with my computer. This one is kind of a hard one because it requires a little trouble shooting(If you don't have extra parts to swap to trouble shoot, it can be hard). I couldn't find the answer anywhere online for this. I found it was that my power supply was to weak to run all my stuff and two monitors. This may or may not be the case for you.

Check these:
Monitor may be broken
Mother Board broke
Video card failure
Power supply too weak

I hope this helps, good luck.

These are not easy to trouble shoot or repair without the correct equipment. Also there are very dangerous voltages in the large capacitors that could very easily injure, or kill you. I hate to say it but you are probably better off buying a new one.

We purchased a Heritage ceiling fan from our local K-mart about two weeks ago, we installed it today and it makes a VERY loud noise in the engine when we turn the fan on... We went through the trouble...

sorry but the company went out of business years ago. The only thing you can do is let it run, The heat from movement will warm the grease and dispers it. The unit is " kinda ceased " do to lack of sales, because there very low end.

Water is too cool for shower. Is there a thermostat?

I do not believe there is a separate thermostat. However the installation guide: gives some trouble-shooting steps. More detailed trouble-shooting is here:

If the indicator light is off when the hot water valve is open: check your circuit breaker and the flow rate of water into the water heater (it must be over 1/2 gallon per minute). If those are okay, check the resistance of the element with a multimeter - 20 Ohms or less is good, 10,000 Ohms or so indicates a bad element. The trouble-shooting guide indicates the proper points to test.

If the indicator light is on, then check the flow rate at the shower head or faucet (reduce the flow until the water comes out hot), check that the unit is installed to the correct voltage supply and the resistance of the element.

If those are okay, then check that the printed circuit board is correctly installed and that the inlet filter isn't clogged.

After that, it's call the company for their technical support.

Pc not switching on even after changing smps. even fan not switching on in smps

You can test you smps simply by shorting any of the back wire and green wire. this will switch on your smps withour connecting with mother board. IF it the fan rotate, SMPS is ok.
If you need more trouble shooting on SMPS you have to measure the volate on each wire after powering on.

Problem of motherboard

Could be a power supply fault, motherboard fault, or fan fault. Many new motherboards will not power up if the fan doesn't rotate, to prevent the processor getting fried.
