Dryer produced a big spark by air exhaust, now it has power and when you try to start it, it only hums. I have taken the back off and looked for a trip switch but was unable to find one.

I have a 1994 ford escort and it's not getting eoungh power I've change the battery, sparks plugs and the alternator don't know what else to do please help


Did you check the timing? If the timing is off there will be a reduction in performance and power will be greatly reduced. If the engine is "pinging" or "knocking" under heavy acceleration, your timing is advanced, and pre ignition is occurring (that's when the spark has ignited the fuel in the combustion chamber prematurely), resulting in a knocking sound. When the piston is compressing the air/fuel mixture within the combustion chamber, the spark plug produces a spark from current it receives from contacts closing in the distributor cap. (Where all the spark plug wires are plugged into) if that spark come BEFORE the piston finishes it up stroke or compression stroke, the piston is then being slowed down from the kinetic energy produced by the exploding fuel. Thats where we loose our power. Idealy, the spark should come AFTER the piston has rotated over the top of its stroke, It has reached its limit in compression and is on its way back down then the spark should ignite the compressed fuel, thus giving the piston an additional "shove" back down to start its "Power" stroke, once its reached the bottom of the power stroke (stroke #2 of 4) it is then carried back up for the "exhaust" stroke pushing the burnt fuel out of the combustion camber and into the exhaust manifold, one it has reached the top of that stroke it begins its journey back down to start stroke number 4, the Intake stroke. Drawing in air/fuel mixture to again be pushed back upward to compress the air/fuel, and repeat the process over and over again. Now that I have thoroughly bored you to tears, Yeah, check the engine timing, if its not the timing it may be a vacuum leak.

Power indicator lights up but there is no power


Remove exhaust hose. Clean out lint. Remove back of dryer. Clean lint out of air flow system including lint and heat unit(coils). Try dryer. Is heat element glowing red hot? If not, replace heat element. They burn out intermittently and need lots of air flow to have good life. Clogged lint traps shorten life cycles. Definitely a DIY project. See youtube for general process.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.
