Not usually a dial problem. First make sure your breaker is not tripped. If the dryer was working fine and suddenly nothing works its usually a power problem. The other problem to check is the door switch. If its not the breaker/fuse panel let me know.

Admiral Dryer Model #AGD4475TQ No Heat


This is very rare on a gas dryer but I have seen it. If you have already replaced all that other stuff I would say it has to be inside the timer. On one I worked on once I could remove that orange wire and the dryer would function ok so I ordered a new timer, they sent me a bad timer. Same problem. I finally got a working timer after going through a bunch of mess. That fixed it. So if all the other components are working it very well could be the timer.

Just stopped working. No burning smell. When start button pushed, some kind of tiny "click" sound heard around the timer.


The click is most likely the timer motor moving the dial on the timer. The motor circuit on American dryers is 120 volts whilst the heater requires 240 volts to operate its 5k element. The motor circuit always has the fuse in it. The heating element has limits mounted on it but they only kill power to the element and not the motor. Fuses are usually located on the blower housing next to the control thermostat. MORE HERE

Fridge not cooling but freezer is maytag model mtb1553ar



Your MTB1553ARA Refrigerator sounds to me like it is not defrosting properly. Look inside the freezer along the back wall and see if a layer of snow is building from top to bottom. To test if defrost will work open the fresh food compartment and look for a small opening were you can turn the defrost timer slowly clockwise until compressor and fans stop running. Click here=> MTB1553ARA Fresh Food Section Control Panel and in that photo you will see the=> 68233-2 Defrost Timer that has a dial in the center I need you to turn clockwise. After the compressor and fans stop I want you to allow the refrigerator to remain off as it is for 30 minutes. The freezer should now be defrosting and if after thirty minutes the refrigerator does not restart on its own then again turn the timer again slowly until it does restart. If you need to restart the fridge this way then the problem is the 68233-2 Defrost Timer Next I will detail how to install the 61001946 Defrost Heater and the=> 61005254 Defrost Thermostat
if the defrost timer is not the reason for this happening. Here is a MTB1553ARA Parts Manual PDF Let me know here how the defrost timer test goes, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a Model ml 44t, when the temp outside became cooler my timer would not turn on the lights, it would stop rotating at the red post.

-I think your outdoor plug is connected to GFI plug in bathroom or kitchen >>> check reset on GFI.
-Next, plug your hair dryer into same outdoor plug to see if plug has electricity >>> electrical plugs outside wear out quicker, and get loose wires.
-Move timer cord to the other plug
-I don't know if a bit of WD 40 would help or not .... couldn't hurt to spry some on the pins at this point ...UNPLUG timer because WD is very flammable...
-Tips from manual mention checking for burned out bulbs ... I've seen that mentioned other places and don't know if bulb problems shorten life of low-volt transformer inside the box.
-I worked with timers for years, and never seen replacement clocks or transformers for Malibu-type timers
-Timers located outside get damp and dirty ... these things cause small gears inside timers to oxidize and clog so they don't work after a while ... again, a bit of WD-40 might help

Tips copied from manual:
• Make sure power pack is plugged in. Is outlet working?
• Turn manual ON/OFF switch to "ON" or rotate dial so "ON" tripper passes time line indicator.
• Is lamp burned out? Use another lamp to test.
NOTE: This lighting system is designed to last many years under normal conditions. However, lamps eventually burn out and operating with one lamp out can shorten the life of the others. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REPLACE BURNED OUT LAMPS PROMPTLY.
Conditions beyond your control such as abnormally high household voltage due to poor utility voltage regulation will also affect lamp life.

The timer has 1 year warranty.

Starts automatically when I set the timer


This could be a problem with the start button switch (it should click when pressed/released) or with the switch on the motor.
