It may be the the door switch or you can try resetting the motor:
1) unplug dryer
2) put dryer on its front side
3) lift up the bottom of the dryer(so that you can see into it) you should see on the right side small red reset button.
4) push the reset button in.
5) put machine upright and plug in
If that does not work then you will have to short/jump out the door switch. Hope this helps Tim

When I try to power up my acer aspire M1201 the power button isn't responding


Check to make sure that power is reaching the power supply of your unit. If it is and still does not work, then the issue is with the supply that needs replacement. Common malady.

I've changed the belt on my indesit is60v but now it will not start could it be a loose wire? my test pen says power is going from the start button to the timer


Just because power is getting to the switch doesn't necessarily mean the switch isn't bad. It is also possible that the motor or timer is defective.

Does Not Shut Off


1st go the the house breaker (dbl breaker) for the dryer and shut it off and turn it back on, your dryer runs on 220 volts of power but if the breaker is partially tripped it may be only running on 110 volts which is only enough power to turn the lights on and to turn the drum the element needs 220 volts to turn on. If it still doesn't heat after resetting the breaker then you may need a heating element or thermostat. The dryer isn't shutting off because it isn't detecting the clothes are getting dry so once you fix your heating problem the dryer should start shutting off on its own again.

Replaced starter button and it worked for awhile. Now it doesn't. If I keep it pressed, dryer runs. If I release, it stops. wedged screwdriver beneath button and that works


The bad news is your switch spring isn't working or is broken. The good news is that you already know how to replace the switch.

Sanyo television doesn't turn off either by using the remote or by turning it off at the tv.All other fuctions work using the remote or directly on the set.Even using the sleep timer doesn't turn...


Unplug the set and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it. If it doesn't then it sounds like there is a problem on the board underneath the power button. Something isn't allowing the circuit to be cut.

The dryer wont show any sign of power. The plug works fine


Hi,


Press and hold start button for 4-5 seconds.Make sure that the start button has been fully pushed down or turned far enough to activate the dryer.

After that plug something else into the same outlet. If it works, you know you have power to the dryer. If it doesn’t work, you’ll need to check for any blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.


If the power is there, you need to check door switch, thermal fuse, thermostats, and start switch to see if one of these is faulty.
Make sure that the control settings are appropriate, and that any buttons are fully depressed.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
