Thanks.. I have a onan 7500k living in from the storm. Will not start with remote inside switch. But you can shut it off with inside switch. Outside switch works great.


Need more info.
Inside does it have an 'on/start' switch and a separate 'off' switch ?
If it does -
1) the start switch is bad.
2) could be a broken/loose/corroded wire at the start switch 3) broken/cut wire to the Onan
4) broken/loose/corroded wire at the Onan where the inside start switch connects.
The fact that it starts at the Onan tells you it's OK.

I have a GE Profile Prodigy eletric dryer that wont start. When I turn the switch it hums and stops when I let go of the switch, but won't start. Is that a switch problem or motor? How do I tell?


Hello,

That sounds like to me the drum belt is broken..GE dryer use a belt switch that if the belt is broke will perform exactly as you describe ..as long as holding the start switch the motor will run and as soon as you release the start switch the motor will stop.

To check for a broken belt remove the top by removing the 2 phillips headed screws inside of the door at the top of it and pull off the top to see if the belt is in place and attached to the drum..if no belt seen when top off its broken and laying down in the base frame

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

My Kenmore 800 series dryer won't start when i push the start button. It does start to spin but stops after i release the start button. Any ideas what the problem might be??


This dryer has a broken belt switch. If the drum turns then the belt is not broken but the broken belt switch could be. The start switch itself could be the problem. This video shows how to get into your machine:

My frigidaire stackable dryer wont turn on when i turn the start switch any clues?


The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.


I would also check the thermal fuse as well. it is located on the vent duct or blower housing. If this fuse is damaged or tripped, it will not allow the dryer to run as well.
