First turn the breaker off and on and try to start it. The breaker could be half tripped. If it doesn't there is a thermal fuse on the back. Unplug the cord. Take off the back cover (9) screws. On the exhaust housing there is a white oblong thermal fuse, at about a 45 degree angle, with 2 wires, held in by a screw, part number 3392519, ( about $14.99). Take the wires off and ohm the fuse, it should have continuity. Or you can take the wires off and hook them together (to bypass the fuse), Plug the dryer back in, try to start it. If it starts replace the thermal fuse.

WHERE IS THE Electronic Ignition Module in 1991 Mits. Montero located

The module is in the distibiutor on the 3.0 engine if you have the 3.5 it would be the crank sensor to the ECM with cam sensor also. Have you checked to see if the timing belt is still intact and moving the camshafts. I have also seen a lot of ecu issues that cause the same thing. But I would start with simple steps Check fuses and connections first.

Bristles quit rotating and smelled like something was burning. It isn't the belt that turns the bristles. Can't afford a repairman, can you help me fix it?

Belt can reamin intact but still jam and burn. It won't necessarily break. I suggest you remove the bottom of the vacuum where the bristles spins and where the belt is located. You may have something jammed in there. You may need to remove the bristle to get the belt out. Inspect the belt and replace after clearing the obstruiction.

We have a Whirlpool LER 5636 Electric Clothes Dryer - the heating element gets too hot - starts to smell like it is going to burn. We have not used it since. Is it worth fixing? Thank you.

This can be a tricky fix. This could be the timer ? or High Limit Thermostat .First of all, I need you to do something...First, set the dryer to Air Fluff thats with no heat. Run it for 5 minutes see if the dryer is getting HOT. I know it should not but thats what I need to see . Then get back to me.

Whirlpool LER 6620 heats, but does not tumble.

if the dryer heats the motor should be good. if it hums its either runing or the hum is a stall noise . if belt is in tact then if motor were going so would the drum . so i think the motor isn't going just humming and the heat sw in the motor is stuck closed with lint and you need to replace the motor .. take the belt off and turn motor if it turns free . the blow it out good and reinstall belt and try again

LER 5620KQO won't start. Any ideas?

I would think that you either have a bad thermal fuse, Thermal cut off or bad door switch. Most likely a bad thermal cut off.

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

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

The horn on my truck stopped working

Check your fuses first for a blown fuse. Also try to recall last time you used the horn, and if it sounded muffled, quieter than normal or just not right, and if it was acting up it's more than likely the horn, wich is located under the bumper by the fender usualy. Also remove your horn button on the wheel, and make sure the wire is conected, and intact.
Hope this helps, Good luck!
