Question about Dryers
My Lakewood 792/JR simply stopped working. I opened it up, cleaned out most of the accumulated fuzz, and used the multimeter to find out how far juice was getting - where it stopped. I found that juice is not getting across a 'resistor' sort of device that jumps across two of the heater coil spacer legs. I need to know what this device really is, its value, and where I might find a replacement. I will solder it in place myself - that will probably fix the problem. Thanks!

Hi Spybotics. I have the same problem and I traced mine down to a burned out over-heat fuse link. Check out my recent post. My guess is that you are having the same problem as me. It's not hard to tell - just take off the rear panel and test the link (looks like a small resistor in line with the element) with an ohm meter. Open circuit means burned out fuse link. DO NOT bypass the link, as an extreme fire hazard will exist without it.

try cleaning it and put oil especially at the base of the shaft.then try wiggling the shaft for bushing tolerance.if you feel the shaft wiggles to wide, then you'll need to replace the bushing and the shaft.but before anything else check the thermal fuse.it is found on the motor itself or try to borrow a tester with resistance measurement to check for continuity of the winding by connecting the probes with the plug, one each terminal.then turn the fan on.the pointer should move if its ok, unless burn out.if not.then the thermal fuse blow-out.

I found one at this place, but is half or more price than the whole heater with shipping.
