Question about Dryers

Still having start up problem...

I removed the motor and had it tested, the guy blew out the dust and put power to it and it ran, no problem. I brought it home and hooked it back up and it worked. What could cause an intermittent start up problem like this? I'm worried that I will put it all back together and have the same problem again...any help would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Mike

    Finally fixed! I jumped out the door switch, ran the motor and wiggled the connector, sure enough the motor stopped and I noticed a small spark inside the connector. Tightened connections, goog to go for now. Thanks for all your help!

???? got me. coulda been a build up of lint around the copper windings, although the motor starts on the bench under the tension of belt perhaps too much?. and if there was that much lint built up in and around it I would look into reventing, or at the very least cleaning out your vent system

My girlfriend recently blew the freeze plug located on the back of intake manifold and I believe it was ran very hot. I replaced it and car started but ran rough, so I killed the engine and tried starting...


when a motor has been cooked ( run with out water ) the rings loose tension , the pistons score the cylinder walls, the head cracks or warps and the head gasket generally blows. In mechanical circles , your best option is a replacement motor either from an engineering rebuilding shop or a good unit from the wreckers.

John Deere 265 starting problem


To start ensure that is not a carb problem, and that the engine is not chocking because of incorrect carburetor settings. The carb should also taken apart and cleaned.

Try also running the engine without fuel tank cap, if engine runs fine replace the tank cap.

if carburetor, fuel filter, tank and fuel lines are ok it may be a faulty fuel pump failing. To test the fuel pump, insert a pressure gauge tool like this in the lines out from fuel pump.

Regards.

Computor beeps


its a POST test beeps. POST = power on start test, it is finding a power issue in your computer, it could be anything but i would start by removing one part at a time see if the computer starts if nothing changes put it back do this one by one see if it anything inside (start with cd drive, then hard drive then video card) after those its either one of 2 things either your power supply is bad or your motherboard is dead/dying (most likely your motherboard in my experiences)

Air conditioning and blower stopped working, all fuses checked good.Is there a common feed to these two circuits?


The answer is that there is dirt dust and fuzz built up in the brushes of the blower motor. Had to figure this one out myself. Remove glove box, carefully disassemble bottom of blower motor, remove brush cap and brushes clean up mess and reassemble. Not for a novice but if you're a thinker you can figure it out. Mine has worked every time since. The Pontiac guys had no clue wanted to replace motor.

Wiper fuse blows as soon as you insert one


first....be sure the fuse is the right ampage. second...if the ampage is correct, and it still blows, do the following. Disconnect the ground-side of your battery. Attached test lamp to ground-side of battery. Take probe end of test lamp and touch anypart of the motor body frame. If the test lamp (DOES NOT LIGHT UP), you have an electrical short. Recommend OBD (On-board Diagnostic) analysis test.

I have a Kenmore top-load washer (110.26902691) and just replaced the coupler. Ran a cycle and had a burning smell. Removed the motor and blew air thru it to remove dust and used contact cleaner. tried it...


I'd pull the coupler off again and make sure that the prongs and holes line up correctly. If they weren't aligned when you replaced the coupler, they could be sliding on and rubbing the rubber connector down.

I'd also make sure that the plugs for the motor are correctly in place.

Following is the Whirlpool Service Manual for these machines. It doesn't have a "troubleshooting" answer for a burning smell but you might be better able to diagnose the smell by looking at how the motor connections fit.
