Question about Frigidaire FEQ1442ES Electric Dryer
If the cord shocked your hubby, the problem is with the cord! It runs on 220 volts, with half (110v) on two seperate wires. One of your wires is shorted or burnt. Unplug the dryer. Pull the dryer out to where you can see where the electrical cord enters the dryer. From the wall, the cord should pass through a strain relief clamp, into the dryer, and then connect to the terminal strip. Many people eliminate the strain relief clamp, and wish they hadn't later. Anyhoo, open the cover plate that covers the wiring in the back of the dryer, and inspect the wiring and terminals. If a shock occurred, the cord probably needs replacing. Purchase a similar cord (~$15), install it through the strain relief into the hole below the wiring access cover on the back of the dryer, and make the wiring connections. For a three wire cord, the outside wires are the hot leads and connect to the dryer, one to the left, one to the right. The middle lead is the neutral, and connects to the middle terminal. Tighten the strain relief, and replace the wiring access cover.
Hope that this was helpful. Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution! Thanx!
