Hey GOD IS GOOD !!!!
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.


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.

My honda vti 2000 model,a/t.engine crank but won't start.what may the possible cause...thanx

Honest, there are over 3,000 reasons that it could be, but one thing about engines hasn't changed. They need FUEL, AIR and SPARK. Check to see that it has all three (like pick a piston easy to get at (if you have the tools, I 'assume' too much quite often) and see if it is getting "fire", if so is there fuel pressure? ... (as for "air" just make sure nothing has taken up residence in the air intake filter or pipes

Wii will not come on no lights, nothing like its not getting power. had a recent electric utility failure hasn't worked since could this have been the cause?

Hi, my name is Shaun. i will attempt to help you with your problem. The answer to your question is "quite possibly." The electronics inside game consoles are particularly sensitive. A power spike resulting from an electrical strike on a power line or the amperage surge from the inrush current when power is restored could easily fry the delicate circuits. My best recommendation would be to have a repairman check the power supply and see if it is still good, or see if your warranty covers those types of repairs, if you have one.
