The speed control switch which is what the cord is attached to has gone bad. You can get these from grainger.com for the dayton line of fans.

Hope this helps

    There may be a cam type wheel or a sprocket that oscillates your fan. It would appear that this has either been moved out of position or may have even became broke the only way to tell would be to take apart the fan casing and inspect it. Before you do this I would visit the dayton site and look for an exploded diagram so you have some type of map to follow.

How does the top come off. snap off??


After you've unplugged the power cord, pull up on the top a little and look for 2 metal snaps under the top lip approx 6" from the front corners. Use a standard flat screwdriver to push against the snaps and release the top from the unit. Watch out, the front will come forward and the drum may fall out of place, so have an extra hand there when you do it. Good luck.

Went to push the dial in to start and it won't


first make sure you have power to the dryer.if you have power to the dryer than put your ear to the timer and see if you hear the timer running.if the timer is running than you nead to unplug the dryer and pull the dryer away from the wall so you can remove the vent hose and the back panal and the power cord cover.next look down and to the left and you will see a white plastic thermal fuse.remove the wires from the fuse and use a meter to see if the fuse is closed.if it is not replace the fuse and replace the back and power cord cover.plug the dryer in and check unit out.

My dryer would not run when I pulled the knob to start. I took the power cord out of the wall outlet. When I replace the cord into the outlet and pulled the knob the outlet sparked.


you most likely have a loose wire inside that wall outlet. use an extension cord to plug your dryer into another outlet that you know works properly and see it your dryer will work on that power source. If it does, just replace the receptacle in that wall outlet. If the dryer still wont run, then you know you have a problem with the dryer itself. If that is the case get back and I can talk you through solving that problem also.

Kenmore series 80 power cord melted


This is extremely distressing to me. If someone advised you to jump acoss (bypass) the thermal fuse on the dryer then I am in disagreement. My advise is to trip the breaker at the house power center, remove and replace the dryer main power cord, and replace the thermal fuse. Something is causing the dryer to pull more amperage than it should be, which is what resulted in the melted cord to begin with. You may want to contact a qualified appliance technician to assist in throughly checking the electrical system on the dryer. Until this condition is properly addressed there is a very real safety issue. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Dryer not working,wondering if the mystery cord is the reason


Sounds like you have a gas dryer...
Could be what your looking a is a thermocouple tubing, if this is broken your dryer will not work...replace with a new thermostat and thermocouple tube. They come as a unit.

DISPLAY SAYS "PF"


HI, there may have been a power surge that shut this unit down or, the junction box may be shorting the power sector. this will damage the main control in this case. i recommend shutting the power off by, pulling the unit plug from the wall socket or, shut the circuit breaker off. let the unit sit for 5 minutes without any power. this will reset the logic chip.

Power the unit back up after this 5 minute wait to see if the reset worked. if the PF is still present, this will confirm a main control fault. replace the control in this case.

**check the power cord junction point for worn connections.

Wont start till I pull on the cord to make connection.checked cord with volt meter,its o.k.help. stampvs@yahoo.com


If you have unplugged the unit and performed a continuity (resistance) check from the end of the power cord to where it connects to the terminal block at the back of the appliance, then the next logical step is to perform a voltage check of the wall receptacle itself. If the voltage at the receptacle is good, but you are having connectivity issues with the appliance plugged in, the receptacle terminals may have become loose, or you may have a power cord that has a loose or broken wire. This intermittent connectivity can cause the receptacle and/or power cord to heat up and cause a fire. With the appliance unplugged, connect an ohmmeter to either end of the power cord and perform a continuity check. Move the power cord to see if the readings are constant. If you have intermittent resistance readings, you have a bad power cord. If the power cord still checks good, then I would recommend having an electrician check your wall receptacle before using the appliance again. If you still have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag dryer stopped working in middle of cycle


I think that the most likely thing that has happened is that the cord has shorted at the terminal block. Disconnect the power from the wall and then pull the cover off the back of the dryer and I think that you will find the problem there. It will be obvious.

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.
