Maytag neptune dryer heats but wont tumble


When you spin it by hand, is there resistance? Can you hear the motor turning? In fact, when you switch it on and it starts to heat, can you hear the motor turning, or is it silent?

Sounds like the belt is broken, in which case there will be little resistance.

If there is resistance, it may be the motor or circuitry controlling the motor.

Dryer wont tumble


Probably a broken belt. Remove the back panel and see if the belt is still around the tumbler. You might pull on it and see if it is broken.

Ive changed the belt on my white knight tumble dryer CL 372 once put back together the drum won't turn and makes a loud noise


There are two do-nut shaped rollers that the tumbler rests on located behind the tumbler. One or both could be bad. Some models have a single "axle" in the center of the tumbler that may be causing the problem.

Can caramel corn be made in the Coater Mixer Tumbler or is it for other flavours only


It is for cheese, and savory powder flavors only. Caramel cookers must cook the caramel first, this only tumbles.

My daughter received an Edu Science Rock Tumbler for Christmas but has lost the instructions. Where can we request for a new set of instructions?


Wow that is a nice one you have, it is probably quieter with the plastic cover. I use to tumble my rocks either in the basement or in an empty drawer in my dresser to sort of block out some of the noise. The one I had when I was younger was probably the first do it yourself old Smithsonian rock tumbler. I'd say that was probably one of the best gifts that I have ever received.
Well, first, you put the bag of rocks that you want to tumble in the tumbler. Make sure it only fills the barrel 2/3-3/4 full or you may have to extend polishing time.
then, usually you use the thickest to the thinnest grit in that order. You put the thickest grit in first and let the rocks tumble from 7-10 days (for optimal polishing). You will do this for each grit you use.

Make sure there is no grit transferred from one step to the next. Hope this helps :)
