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?????

Assuming this is a 220 volt dryer, are both sides of the breaker on? It should not blow only one side of the 220, but worth checking.

Dryer works bu not lighting the furnace.What do u think?


Two things come to mind when this happens. The duct work is totally plugged up or the spark ignitor is out of order.
Check the vent tubing by completely disconnecting it and cleaqn thoroughly clean. I see one once I took apart and filled a 15 gallong trash bag full of lint. The dyer was three years old and had a 10 foot vent tube. 4 feet of tubing is always recomended at the longest length used. If longer it needs to be cleaned evey few months for 100% efficiency
If the tubing is clean turn on the dryer and listen for the click the sopark ignitor makes to light up the burner. If no click is heard the ignitor is bad

MY DRYER NO LONGER PUTS OUT HEAT. IT IS A KENMORE MODEL 110.62952100 SN ML 1807275 ANY CLUE HOW OLD IT IS....AM I BETTER OFF BUYING A NEW ONE, OR SERVICING THIS ONE?


Electric Dyer approximately 10-12 years old. Most likely needs a new heater coil, or could be frayed wires.
Can be serviced. But if you want a new one... that is up to you. But it may be cheaper to fix it as long as you hire someone honest

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.
