Question about Magic Chef Dryers

1 Answer

Gas Dryer Stops after 30 minutes.

I have a Magic Chef CYG4000AWW that stops after 30 minutes of work, then I have to wait for a while until it cools down (I guess).

I have already replaced the set of Valve Coils but I still have the problem I also have cleaned the whole vent line from blower to exhaust and the dryer is blowing good.


Please help,

    When I opened the dryer again to check for lint on the motor I found out it was more or less clean, so I checked for something else could force the motor and found out that one of the drum roller was tight.

    I replaced the drum rollers and now the dryer completes the cycles.

    Thanks

Your problem is caused by a motor overheating causing its internal overload to shut it down until the motor cools. If you truly have thoroughly cleaned all interior areas of your dryer and the vent leading from the house to the outside there are only two possible problems that can give you this failure.

  1. The dryer motor bearing is failing (tightening) causing the motor to be harder to turn. This will force the motor to draw more current to keep it running and this generates more heat than usual. The additional heat opens the thermal safety on the motor until it cools down. Motor needs to be replaced
  2. The air holes at each end of the motor are clogged with lint that needs to be cleared out. The body of the motor may also be coated with lint. Both these conditions will cause the thermal overload in the motor to open until it cools. Motor needs to be fully vacuumed.
Good Luck.

My dryer isn't drying like it should. It doesn't seem as hot as it use to be and it takes forever to get things dry. I'm not sure if it's lint build up or something more. Any help will be appreciated.

Dryer makes squeaking noise ,then dryer shuts off. mdl.#CYG4000AWW


Hello, sounds like the rear drum rollers are in need of replacement which is causing the motor to get hot and cut out on the thermal cut out. It can be tricky to service if you not handy. Good Luck
