Question about Amana Dryers

Open Question

I own Model number: LFA30AW MFG number: PLGA30AW PIC number: 1109040000 Serial number: 9801062461 My husband put a new temp switch in and the dryer gets warm. If we put the cover on the bottom of machine then the pilot light goes out and it's no longer hot. If we take the cover off the front then the machine works like it should. It seems as though there is a safety then going on if the cover is on and that it's getting too much build up of warm air and then the pilot light goes out. It's venting to the outside like it should. What should we check now?

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite H3 Dryer taking longer than normal to dry clothes

EVEN THOUGH THERE IS WARM AIR COMING OUT THE EXHAUST, IT STILL MAY HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE DUCT WORK. DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER FOR ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF IT DRYS THE CLOTHES O.K., YOU HAVE A RESRICTION SOMEWHERE IN THE EXHAUST.

NOTE: DO NOT USE VINYL OR PLASTIC DUCTING. VINYL IS NOT U.L. APPROVED. PLASTIC PVC WILL ALLOW CONDENSATION TO PUDDLE INSIDE THE PIPE CAUSING A
COMPLETE RESTRICTION.

SOURCE: Cleaned vents, dryer gets very hot, shuts off w/o drying clothes

Sounds like a faulty operating thermostat. Only way is to test on a electric griddle that you can set the temperature to 150 deg and measure with a ohm meter.

SOURCE: Kenmore HE Dryer not blowing hot air

I have a gas kenmore dryer... the drum runs- it blows air and for just a few minutes warm air but after a few minutes the air is cold. I have cleaned the vent checked it good. I didn't see the fuse on the back I have the bottom latch open and see several wires that can be disconnected; snap together.

How can I tell if new Suzuki 140hp engine is really a 2017 model by the serial number


It should have the MFG. date stamped into the I.D. plate along with the serial number . If not the serial number should have the number 17 in sequence in the serial number either at the beginning or the end.

Fridgeaire upright freezer no serial numbers to be found anywhere was trying to adjust temp on front of door outside now unit says of and is not running how to turn back on???


tough one
i guess its a frost free
turn the thermostat adjustment to on /highest temp temp ...then off /lowest
till the compressor kicks in

if not suspect faulty digital display panel or thermostat itself

agreed no serial number etc
makes it very hard to help you fix this

Hi I've found my nans old singer mfg.co.NY serial no 8613813 sewing machine but I can't find any info on that serial number. Any help please?


Google singer and serial, or find singer collectors they probably have complete serial number list. Hopefully, it will correspond to a model, then more search for information on the model.

Without knowing the brand looking up models mfg. dates is difficult.
did you check back or bottom for Mfg. date? Usually near the serial number. Sometimes the mfg. date is contained in the serial number. You may also try googling the manufacturers name and view their contact information.

How can I remove the back of a gateway all in one Model: ZX6971-UB20P


very carefully! actually i have not worked on allinones. i know that if you have a warranty it may be voided if you don't take it to shop? you can usually go online and ask the 'HOW TO..' web site. Just put in the mfg, model number of pc saying 'how do i take back off of (information)'. if it is too new to have solution, go to Gateway web site and download User Manual which should tell you how to do repairs. it will be in PDF(adobe) format. Just put in model id or serial tag number of your pc and Gateway will show you the downloads, etc.
