    after using the serger and changing to another piece of the same material the serger stops serging. The thread does not break but comes out of the right side of the lower looper.

    Am I doing something wrong and how do I correct this?

    I have rethreaded many times and it continues to happen.

How do I remove broken fan

The fan is reversed threaded. Lefty tighty righty loosey. To get a stubborn blade off without harming the motor use a adjustable wrench to connect to the flat portion of motor shaft inside the dryer and place the end of the wrench to the left on the floor. Jam a Large flat file in between the blower wheel at the 3 o'clock position. Use downward force with a large hammer to knock the blower loose. If it still will not budge hit the center of the plastic till the blower pieces are removed so that you can get over to an anvil with the motor. Lay the motor shaft on the anvil and bang on the pot metal left over from the plastic till it breaks. 2 or 3 good whacks with a big ball peen hammer should do the trick. You want to keep in mind the motor does not needs to be wrangled with but you still must get the remainder of the old blade off there.

Smelled electrical burning last night and unplugged my GE profile dryer and one of the prongs(3 prong type) was burned

This usually indicates a loose connection. Check the wire connection inside the outlet and the connections on the back of the dryer. Make sure the nuts are not cross threaded, this commonly happens with the fine thread. When a loose connection happens the electricity will generate heat trying to make the connection, the cause of many home fires every year.

Motor heats up and stops running how do remove

The blower fan on this model has reverse threads where it screws onto the motor shaft. At the small space between the motor and the rear wall of dryer you will see that the blower wheel has a square neck that will allow you to hold it stationary with a large crescent wrench. while holding the blower grip the pulley on the front of the motor with another wrench (or channel locks) and turn the motor shaft clockwise to break the blower loose. Sometimes a quick motion is better to free it as it may be on the motor threads pretty tight.
Good luck on this!

Hi, I wouldn't say you are way off, unless your expectations are way hi. Most average joe's or jane's don't work on dryer's everyday, so some reason needs to be considered. I'm currently on my iphone and not my home computer so I can't attach an illustration to guide you on how to thread the belt through the pulley/idler however, if you go to youtube and type in whirlpool dryer belt repair it should yield you many helpful videos on "how to" just what you need. Hope you found this info helpful and if so please rate it's helpfulness or leave a testimony...or both. Thank you for coming to "fixya" for your repair tips. Let me know if I can assist you further, and good luck. Macmarkus :)

How do i take the fan off

Good day,
You need a good wrench that will fit on the nylon shaft of the blower. A second wrench is needed to fit on the flat of the pulley on the front of the motor.
It's best, if the motor is still mounted in place.
The threads on the blower wheel are LEFT HANDED, which means you turn the wrench on the front of the motor clockwise to loosen it.
Once again, the wrench used on the blower wheel must be a good fit. It is best to just let it rotate, until it rests on the bearing support shaft. Apply pressure (usually a lot). If it breaks loose, continue to turn it until it falls back into the rear cavity.

If it rounds off, don't feel bad. About half will come off, the rest will not. You'll need a long screw driver or chisel, to break it off.

Thank you for using FixYa
