Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

My Maytag dryer won't start when I hit the start button

JUst wouldn't start one day after doing one load successfully. I've read some issues on this site. My belt is intact and my ventilation definitely isn't clogged, so how would my thermal fuse have blown? Is there another way the thermal fuse can blow? I haven't had a chance to test it yet b/c I have to buy a meter!

    Just found something i didn't check before. The ground wire from the power cord is corroded and fell off the metal plate. Guess I need to replace the whole thing?

    Im having the same problem today Jan 16th with my maytag dryer. The light wont come on when I open the door either. The dryer just stopped working after one successful load and wont turn on when I push the button. I checked the plug and breaker and reset that to no avail. Any guesses?



    Thanks

My dryer light comes on for my Maytag SDE4606AYW dryer when you open the door and I can hear the timer clicking but when I hit start the motor doesn't even attempt to start but there is obviously power. My dad just installed a new power cord to the dryer but this is a seperate issue as we were obviously unable to check the motor before we got a cord for it. He has years of electrical experience so I'm assuming he connected the new cord right. Any ideas on fuses in the dryer or why it may not be getting power?

Another way thermal fuses can blow without having a resticted vent is by opening the door or shutting down the dryer midcycle. When you start a drying cycle with wet clothes the heater is on for like 30mins straight and instantly stopping the air flow across it (by opening the door or other means) can make the residual heat open the fuse. Double check the vent though to make sure it isnt clogged.

It sounds like that you have found the problem yourself. Remove the power cord and replace the terminal ends, or replace the entire cord.

SOURCE: Maytag performa Keeps blowing Thermal Fuse. Vents

something is still plugged with lint,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is on top remove the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the lint filter and the two screws in front of it and remove the four screws and clean out the duct,if the filter is in front take off the bottom panel,remove the filter and clean the duct,also vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,when the dryer gets to hot the thermal fuse pops as a safety so you still have a block somewhere

SOURCE: Maytag Performa dryer blowing heating elements

Hi and welcome to FixYa. You should check the dryer vent ducting inside and outside the dryer for restrictions / clogs to include the vent flapper. Poor air flow through the dryer will cause hot spots. If the blower is slipping on the motor shaft this too can cause poor air flow.

When you change the heating element AGAIN... break out the crevice tool and de-lint everything you can access. Also pull out the lint filter and wash it with white vinegar and water then soap and water. Fabric softener sheets material builds up on lint filters. It looks clean but air will not pass through the lint filter.

I think once you get it all ceaned up including all of the ducting to and through the outside wall it will work normally with no problems. I do not think at this time that you have an electrical problem with the outlet supply.

There is one more thing to check and that is the high limit thermostat. It could be STUCK. It will most likely be labeled L180 or L190. That thermostat is suposed to open at either 180 deg or 190 Deg depending on which one is installed. If it does not open then you will keep cooking your elements. We test them with a match and an Ohm Meter. Match under the removed thermostat CLICK. Thermostat opens (no resistance)

Wish ya the best.

Thanks for using FixYa.

2004 yamaha yz250f ran all weekend then the next day after riding it, it wouldn't start


Hi, Alex and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

My 95 maxima wouldn't start one day I started by


My best guess without being able to see the car is that the battery hard wiring is faulty.

You need to check both the condition, routing and security of the battery negative and positive leads.
You also need to check the security and condition of any additional earth leads which connect the engine to the chassis/body.

Hi,dyson dc25 overdrive,my brusher's wont go round,i have cleaned the brusher's and filter,loads of suction.the belt is intact and the roller move's feely by hand,could it be the switch


Hi Stephen,

I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty with your DC25 Overdrive. If the brush bar won't rotate, and you've already checked the cleaner head is free of obstructions, it's likely it just needs resetting.

You might like to take a look at the video below to make sure everything is correct with the machine. Once you've done this, if you turn the machine on, recline it into the vacuuming position, then press the silver brush control switch twice, this should reset the brush bar.

If you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. Just to let you know, calls are free from UK landlines, and the Helpline is available from 7am-10pm, 7 days a week.

Vitara 1.6 16v 96' wont start


There are multiple reasons. Need to start the process of elimination. First things first, the cheapest thing to check is the battery. I've had several vehicles which displayed the same thing: ran one day, wouldn't start the next. Fortunately, they just needed a battery.

After that, could be other issues: alternator, starter, possible timing component issues, fuel pump.

I know this is vague, but, the it is sort of a loaded question.

check the battery for full charge, you should have a minimum of 12.4 volts, once its charged ( I'd have a parts store do a LOAD test on it ) start the vehicle, and check the posts again, it should be giving you a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts,, if not, and you've cleaned all the contacts you have a bad alternator

I receive the following error message, when I power on my Copystar CS 300ci: Machine Failure C1950 Any suggestions



Transfer belt unit EEPROM error No response is issued from the device in reading/writing for 5 ms or more and this problem is repeated five times successively. Mismatch of reading data from two locations occurs eight times successively.

Mismatch between writing data and reading data occurs eight times successively


1. Poor contact in the connector terminals.

- Check the connection of connector YC28 on the engine PWB and the connector of the transfer belt unit, and the continuity across the connector terminals. Repair or replace if necessary.


2. Defective transfer belt speed PWB (inner transfer belt unit).

- Replace the transfer belt unit.


I hope this is helpful,
