What type of dryer is this? All dryers have a button to start them.

Thanks.. I have a onan 7500k living in from the storm. Will not start with remote inside switch. But you can shut it off with inside switch. Outside switch works great.

Need more info.
Inside does it have an 'on/start' switch and a separate 'off' switch ?
If it does -
1) the start switch is bad.
2) could be a broken/loose/corroded wire at the start switch 3) broken/cut wire to the Onan
4) broken/loose/corroded wire at the Onan where the inside start switch connects.
The fact that it starts at the Onan tells you it's OK.

Speed queen 30eg wont start. I have power through the switches all the way to the motor. I can hook the motor up direct and it runs fine, but i cant get it to start with the push button start

If you can jumper across the start switch you can eliminate the start switch as the problem. The switch acts as an open in the start control wiring. If the unit starts when you jumper across the switch, then replace the switch. If you are uncomfortable in jumpering out the switch you can unplug the dryer "disconnect power" just unplug the dryer then use a multimeter to read across the switch. Place the meter on continuity mode for an audible beep. If the meter doesn't beep when you press the switch to close the contacts, then replace the switch. Hope this helps!

How come I can't start my John Deere LA115 after

The Reverse Interrupt Override switch is supposed to let you keep the blades engaged while using reverse. Be sure PTO is off and brake pedal is depressed and try to start engine. If it wont start/ wont crank then a switch is stuck or failed or there is a broken wire. Switches that are involved with PTO operation are the seat switch, reverse switch, PTO switch, and RIO switch. The starting system requires neutral ( no reverse activated), brake switch and PTO switch off.

Motorcycle will push start but not ignition switch start

Does it turn over when trying to start? If no then it could be the starter, switch, or battery. Sounds like the starter, especially if you tried another switch.

The dryer runs without the start switch being used.

Good day,
The dryer start switch, starts the motor by bypassing the centrifugal
switch built into the motor. Once the motor is running, releasing the switch doesn't matter because the motor gets it's power directly from the timer to the motor thru the centrifugal switch.

Either the switch on the consul has welded the contacts, or the centrifugal switch in the motor has done the same.

To test, unplug, and access the start switch. remove one of the wires from the switch, tape it to prevent shorting, and try the dryer. If it fails to start, then it is the switch.
If it still does the same thing as before, it is the centrifugal switch in the motor.

Probably either a bad interlock contact in the safety switch OR a mechanical problem in actuating the switch. Use a continuity tester on the switch to diagnose.

G.E. electric dryer will not run, when you turn the switch to start it only hums. What could be the problem, it is only 3 years old. Thank you

First of all check your door switch, make sure it is operational.If the door switch checks good, the start switch could be faulty, in newer dryers the start switch is built into the timer in older dryers your start switch may be seperate, if you have to push on the timer dial to start the dryer, its built into the timer.

Check any other safteys that may be stuck open.Double check anyway. If it wont do anything, I would say its the door switch or the start switch.
