How do I locate and test the fuse?

Thanks for your help. How do I locate for sure? How do I test it? Could I just by-pass it temporarily to check if dryer will run?

Fuse is usually smaller that safety thermostat and located on outer rim of element housing jumping it temp would show if bad or not but do not leave it that way ohm meter would be better

This sounds like a bad starter. If you locate the starter it will sometimes work temporarily if you peck on it with a hammer

there is a gear shift selector by pass it is white in color i assume the selector is on the floor with a center console around it. remove the cover by prying up in the corners press the white by pass button and selector will move. thats just to move the vehicle temporarily. the real problem lies in the wiring harness that goes into the transmission it has a short in it that is grounding out that blows the fuse. to find the bad fuse take a test light hook the ground up to ground and probe the fuses one by one the one that dont light up replace. this is while fuses are in vehicle car on.

81 toyota pick-up. No spark

Check to make sure the main fuse is good. Sometimes those blow when you short out a wire from the battery to the ground on the car *like when an alternators live wire hits ground on the car.
On a 1981 Toyota pickup, im unsure of where it is located, but sometimes they are located in the fuse box, as a big fuse usually a 100 amp or 80amp fuse.. Sometimes they are located along a ground connected to the engine and the frame of the car. This could make it just crank and not start.
Check also to make sure that the engine is grounded, by taking a test light and connecting it to the positive side of the battery, and testing the metal around the motor. Sometimes grounds can break, or when shorted out they can melt. If the motor is not grounded then it will not start. and will just crank.
Hope this helps a little - Jarett

Dryer will not start

based on your description, i would suggest two possibilities. the first....check the door switch
two....check the blower housing sensor (a fuse like component located at the lower rear of the dryer).. it is a small , slim part about an 1 1/4 inches long and about 3/8 ths inches wide. it has a wire connection at both ends.
a quick test for both components mentioned would be to pull the wires off and temporarily connect them together. (be sure to not let them touch anything else). then try to operate the unit.
hope this helps...........................jay

Problem with steam

I'll take the machine if you are throwing it away:) You have a blown fuse. There are 2 fuses inside the mahine. Uplug the mahine, Pull the top of and locate both fuses. Connect a wire going from one end to the other of the fuse. This will temporarily short circuit the fuse. Now plug the machine in, and test it out. If it works, than that is obviously the bad fuse. If not, try the exact same procedure on the other fuse. My thermal fuse went out and it only set me back $1.98 to fix. Good Luck!

Maytag Neptune Gas Dryer

You have a Hi-Limit t'stat located at 12 o'clock on the flame shroud. A safety fuse is also located on the flame shroud at 1 o'clock. The flame sensor is located at 9 o'clock on the flame shroud. The Hi-Limit can be temporarily bypasses for a quick check, as well as the fuse, but do 1 at a time. Be sure to unplug the dryer before testing.

If that doesn't help, let me know if you need more assistance.

Warning! Shock Hazard! Disconnect dryer from power source before servicing.
I assume you repaired a wire that attaches to a white ceramic insulator terminal? If you have a volt-ohm meter, you can check continuity of the element and hi-limit thermostat and overtemp.fuse located on the element shroud. If you ddon't have access to a meter then visually inspect the element for a break in the coil. The fuse and hi-limit can be temporarily bypassed 1 at a time to eliminate 1 or the other being faulty. Also double check your heat temperature settings on the control panel to make sure it did not become de-selected. There are also temperature control thermostats attached to the blower housing in lower left corner of the dryer that can be temporarily bypassed to test for failure. Tip: Clean lint filter after each load. Clean vent to outside,(check every 3-6 months), and refrain from overloading dryer. This will help extend the life span of the element and the dryer itself.

Hope this helps!
