The first thing to do is unplug the dryer. Inspect the vent hose for obstructions.I have an older model - 551550d.jpg
Then remove the rear cover and look at the element.a79fca6.jpg
If the element is ok then check the safety's mounted on the heater chamber. 6eb681e.jpgIf all of the safetys and control stats are ok you may have a bad timer. The timer has a fat red wire connected to one terminal. Remove that wire and clamp a lead from an ohm meter there. Check for continuity between that point and other legs of the timer. Turn the timer knob. If you cannot get a reading then the timer contact insideI have an older model - be7ae96.jpgimg src="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/be7ae96.jpg" alt="be7ae96.jpg" class="h_mi" /> If that is ok you could have a bad circuit breaI have an older model - 63b213d.jpgtor runs on 120 volts. 63b213d.jpgYou might think you have power to the element but it requires 240 volts. These dryers are worth the trouble and time to repair them. Old school I have an older model - b3842e7.gifl and more repair photos HERE

My start button on my kenmore built-in oven w/microwave won't wor


my kenmore model number 911-47699100 oven doesn't work. Everything except the oven and broil works--cleaning, all timers, start button, etc. All that happens when you push start is about every 30 seconds, two relays can be heard making and breaking kind of like a click then immediately a clack. No error codes appear. Replaced sensor but that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

You are right it is the infinate heat control. This has no thermostat. It works by letting the burner cycle on for longer periods of time on the higher settings on high it is on constantly. The contacts are probably fused inside This part shouldn't be more than $25.

Everything works... except the heat!


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com

A full Sears/Kenmore model number usually has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

no, just 1 main fuse for everything. there are temp safety devices though, and door closed safety switches. Most likely failure though is the magnatron.
