My Frigidaire gallery dryer stopped working it will buzz when I turn the starter knob but never starts nor does the drum turn ,then I smell a burning smell


if you can hear the motor running then probably the belt is either too loose and/or broken (you may hear a rubbing or squeeling sound).....if you cant hear the motor running then it may be burned out....a very acidy smell.

Either problem requires taking the dryer apart to fix (new belt or new motor)

It still has a burn off smell it won't come on at 2 and 3 when it goes off it make a sqealing sound sometimes


As far as the smell is concerned ... If you initially burned it on high for a minimum of 45 minutes, the smell should have dissipated. If however, you have recently painted prior to or just after it's installation, it's probably picking up the new paint odor and making it worse. Rug or floor cleaning products will do the same thing. As far as the squeeling noise is concerned, that could be caused by a low pressure problem from your LP tank regulator. If it occurs when the outside temp is well below freezing, more than likely the tank regulator is partially frozen. Soak a bath towel in hot water, ring it out and place it around the tank regulator to thaw it out. Once the gas is flowing freely again, the squeeling noise should cease.

If none of the above remedies your problem, contact ECS Technical Support 800-851-3153

High pitch squeeling noise/no picture.


your problem is due short circuit in horizontal section of  tv

your problem & smell is due to horizontal section failure.

in that section

1 flyback transformer & horizontal output transistor might be faulty.

but remember to check power supply is normal other wise it may fail again.

for skilled technician it is not a major problem &easy to fix at fair cost.

good luck.
