Sounds like damage to motor or start switch on motor due to the cord wired incorrectly. You will more than likely have to replace the motor in the dryer.

Moved dryer, hooked up wrong, not working now after re-hooked up


have you check outlet with a voltmeter or even checked breaker? Is your new rect' a 3 or 4 prong outlet? If you hooked up red's to black and black to reds it still should have worked. The 220 volt heating element is between the red's and blacks the 110 circuits would be between a red or black to white wire.

I need a wiring diagram hook up for a Jenn air 201595D Range top & also for a GE Double oven JKP36G0D1B0


Cook top manuals and installation.

Could not find installation manual on oven but did find manual. If you are just trying to wire to the house wiring you need to conect this way. Yo uwill have 3- 4 wires from the house. 1 white, 2 black or 1 black and 1 red. From range hook white to white Black to black or red they both are the hot line. and the other black or red to black or red from the house. If you have bare wires that is the ground There is 2 ways to do the hook up on the ground. 1st way is if you have ground in box from house wire them together. 2nd way is if there is no groung just wire it up with the white wire that is the netural line. It will be fine that way. If you can see in you main braker box the netural and the ground go to the same bus bar.

Wiring directions for Kenmore 800 Dryer


Hello mynexthome,
Sounds like you did everything correctly however it is possible the wall receptacle may be miswired. The white wire is the neutral, black and red are the line feeds ( hot ) and green is ground. If you are sure the receptacle is wired correctly and that the power cord is wired as you say it is, then there may be an internal issue with the dryer..or some packing material was not removed and is burning off. ( make sure the drum can spin freely and you aren't smelling a belt burning) The red and black are normally on either side of the neutral but you should match the color code on the terminal block on the dryer. Hope that helps...
Regards,
Rick

Electric cord


What you should get is a new 4 wire cord. It is way less complicated than trying to change out the wall receptacle.
On a 4 wire dryer cord you have White(common) in the middle. Red and Black are hot and go on either side of white. If you really want to make it look good you can put red to red on the terminal and black to black but you don't have to. Some dryers may not have those color hot wires. Green hooks to the chassis with a green screw or any screw connected directly to the frame.

Ge dryer hooking up for prong cord


If the house is wired right you should be hooked up right. Sounds like it's not moving air properly. Check that the vent is not crushed behind it and that it flows clear all the way outside.
