Question about Dryers
Fan was working fan and yesterday starting acting as if the battery for the remote needed changing. (we always use the remote) Today the remote worked once to turn the unit one but then ....nothing. I changed the battery twice but still nothing. I also cannot get the unit to work when pulling the chain. What do ya think?
Okay. Turn off circuit breaker. Take the bottom off the fan. Mark how the wires are connected. Remove switch by unscrewing the sleeve you mentioned. Take the switch to Home Depot (or the like) -- buy a replacement.
If you have to turn the breaker back on during this process, make sure you have a wire nut over the end of each of the loose wires you disconnected from the switch.
After you take the switch out, you'll know how to reinstall it, so I won't go thru that.

If it won't do 'anything' you need to check the whole start circuit. You need a multimeter and some knowledge of electrical troubleshooting to do this. I can help you if you meet the above description...let me know

The problem you describe is usually caused by a thermal fuse intended to shut the dryer motor down and keep it off because of a problem with air flow within the dryer.
The following process will allow you to test the thermal fuse and replace it if you find it open.
Unplug unit and turn off gas if gas model. Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.
Most parts likely to fail on electric dryers are inside the rear cover. Heater is on right inside can, safety thermostat on lower left of can, High limit thermostat (non-resettable) higher left of can. On the blower housing to the left are the operating thermostat and, in some models, a thermal fuse (white plastic). ALL can be continuity checked easily. Always disconnect wire on one side of what you are testing. One will likely be open. Replace the component that fails the continuity test.
The thermal fuse or high limit thermostat failure generally points to a reduction of air flow due to SOME blockage either inside the dryer or in the vent pipe leading out of the house. If you find either of these parts bad be sure to check the vents after replacing parts to ensure the same parts won't fail again.
