    Power is available and after dismantling the fan, I noted that the unit is thermally protected. I am wondering if the 20uF cap (rated at 70degrees) may have bit the dust. I was using the fan to blow warm air from my kerosene heater in my garage instead of letting the heat rise to the ceiling. I may have had it too close. I will test the Cap later, when I have a few minutes to spare.

    YEp, a bit rusty, but I studied elect in the Navy back in the 70s and worked the mainframe industry for a few years before realizing that electronics was not really the field I wanted to be in. Am pretty sure I either fried the thermal in the cap or just plain old burned up the motor. I had it sitting on top of my kerosene fan to blow warm air through my garage, usually use it on medium but only set it on low to keep dust to a minimum ( i was painting) and probably got it too hot.

Before trying top replace anything, make sure you have power at the motor from the cord.
If you have no way to check for power, unplug and change the cord to any other you have around.
That will assure that the cord is good or bad.

How to get to dryer drum. GE mod#dbvh520ej2ww


Hello there and welcome to fixya
The most common problem with these are the motor or the motor bearings or rollers
and next is clothes getting caught between the drumb and the shell of the unit
Here is some troubleshooting help for you listed below
Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor: Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor

Hello i have a international harvester model 100 diesel portable torpedo haeter. my problem is that when i plug it in i get a humming noise and it doesnt start. can u please help????


Sounds like the fan/fuel pump motor is not turning so try this. Take the top section of the heater tube off, this exposes all of the internal working parts. Now locate the fan motor and fan, try turning the fan by hand, should spin nice and easy if not take a light oil or I like PB Buster and oil bearings on the shaft behind the fan, then first set in the front of the motor, then the bearings at the rear of the motor. You do this and spin the fan by hand as many times as it takes for that fan to spin freely. Then plug it in and try to fire it off, if it worked shut it off put it back together and happy heating. If not you may need a new fan motor or could be something in your fuel pump, usually it will be motor related .

When I turn on the a/c there is a humming noise and the fan does not come on. Do I need to replace the fan? Is it difficult/expensive?


Hi,
Before you replace it, pull the cover off and see if you can get some WD-40 worked into the shaft bearings...spray the shaft at each end with the WD-40 and then spin the motor by hand with the power off...after a bit the shaft may loosen up and then you can plug it in and get it running...then lubricate the bearing by dropping a few drops of light motor oil where the shaft enters the motor....
If the motor spins freely but does not run then it will need to be replaced..this may cost more then your unit is worth...matching up a motor can be difficult but changing it really is often not that hard...if you can get the fan blades off easily...

LG DLE5977W electric dryer hums when attempting to restart


This is usually the motor but not always. Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

Our Maytag gas dryer drum doesn't turn. Replaced belt. Heats up but drum isn't turning


There are three possible reasons why the drum doesn't turn.
  1. Broken belt. You replaced the so in this case it's not.
  2. Door switch. The dryer will not operate if teh door switch is defective. It is inside the drier main housing near the door frame. You need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Replace if defective.
  3. Motor. If the motor hums when the start button is pressed, the motor maybe burned-out. Check the dryer motor:
  • Check the blower fan housing for obstruction and manually turn the motor shaft.
  • If the motor is very stiff or cannot be turned manually, you need to replace the motor.
  • If the motor rotate freely, run the motor without the belt. If it runs fine, there maybe problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum.
  • Rotate the drum by hand. If it is difficult to rotate it, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley. Reassemble the dryer and try it again.
  • If the motor hums but does not run on it's own even without the belt,but can be turned freely by hand, you need to replace the motor start capacitor or the motor itself.

Dryer not turning. belt is good


Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
