Dryers have a 'thermal fuse' that will cause the whole thing to turn off. it seems like yours has burned out. it may be caused by a restriction in airflow, so when you replace the thermal fuse make sure you clean the exhaust or the fuse may go out again.

I own a Magic Chef model YG225LV and the drum stopped spinning. Looks like I need to disconnect the vent and gas lines and open it in back to get to the belt for replacement. Can you confirm that?

I have everything set properly. When I push the knob to start the cylce nothing happens. I have a magic chef Model #YE20JN5 I have cleaned the lint trap. I have made sure my door is closed properly.

first thing to check is if the belt broke, as the safety switch would shut every thing down. you can check by removing bottom front cover , or if it doesnt, place machine on its side and look under

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run

So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Magic chef dryer will do everything but spin, What should I do?

You probably have a broken drum drive belt. Your local appliance parts store will have them.

It's an easy part to replace.
