Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

Kenmore Dryer - Model No. 110-85872401

I have a 2-year old Kenmore dyer. Just recently it began to work only intermittently. The console lights only come on intermittently with no apparent pattern. The inside light works even if the console lights don't.

Electrician checked input to house and plug - no problem there. Have had repair out twice - but of course machine works when he's here. Claims can't fix unless he can the machine isn't working. Portends a career of repair calls until that magic moment when machine is not working when repairman shows up. HELP?????

My ferret 84 timing light is about 7 years old. it has been working flawlessly until recently. when connected it always sees rpm but the strobe is very intermittent. i purchased a new pickup with no...

Check the Big Yellow Capacitor on the Ckt Bd. the lead closest to the strobe lamp should measure approx 300 to 350 VDC these have a failure rate after about 7 years. Also make sure the solder is making a good connection. The Seriel Num is on the top of the light should be something like 84-9934-0001 which broken down it is 84 the model. next group 9934 is the year, (last two digits of) and week the last four digits production number.
Also could be Lamp or the small red in color trigger transformer, diodes in the lamp area.
The pig tail will have issues at the "Heyco" connector. also what is the Ckt Bd is the construction Conventional "through hole" or SMT "Surface Mount"? I'm thinking it is the Cap.

Does 1995 accord have a cabin filter, and how to change it?

I checked, and could not find a part listing for your year. Apparently Honda began using cabin air filters in the 98 model year of the accord. (that year and newer is, I believe easily accessed from behind the glove box. ( I changed an 04 accord recently, which was easy to replace).

Kenmore 67082 "PF" power failure code

Check your circuit breaker. Reset it even if it doesn't look tripped. It is a dual switch and sometimes you can't tell if one of them is tripped. Then try it. When you reset the breakers leave them off for about 10 minutes before turning them back on.

Frost in Kenmore frost free

Although you say the seal is fine, this is almost certainly due to air getting in. With the door closed check that there isn't a tiny gap with a strip of thin card or plastic. Of course if air is getting in then it must also be getting out somewhere else so probe all around the seal.
