SOURCE: normal, delicate LEDs blink; rotor starts, then stops

OK. Here is the real solution: the dry sensor itself needs to be clean. There is an excess of clothing fiber deposited over the sensor. When you use "sensor dry" the sensor is not detecting humitity flow and it "thinks" that the clothes are dry, therefore it turns the machine off after a minute of operation. The sensor is located on the right side of the plastic grill where the filter is inserted. Stick you head inside the dryer and look down towards the mounting plastic grill and you will see it. You will see 4 holes where the screws are installed to mount the grill. Remove the screws and you will release the sensor. You will see the black and white wires connecting to it when it comes loose. I don't think that it matters where each one is connected, but I did mark them in order to re-install them back to their original connectors. The sensor is made of two metal pieces that run parallel to each other. Disconnect the wires after releasing the sensor. Use a vacuum to clean it. I actually washed it to remove all fiber dust from the surface of the plates and dry it with a hair dryer. Clean it very well so you do have to do it again anytime soon. Re-install the sensor and reset the dryer. This should do the trick... Good Luck!

SOURCE: Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.

Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!

A customer of mine has a very nice Hunter original ceiling fan that she never oiled and now the fan just hums and wont spin. Is it possible to repair after no oil damage is done?

Put some oil in and turn blades by hand to lubricate the bearings. If the motor is frozen, then you would have to take it to a service center or send back to Hunter for repair.

Hunter 23852,L-black to red-hurricane speed,black to yellow-almost hurricane,black to gray-very slow,hardy moves air,installed westinghouse 6A125vac switch,same speeds,how can i get a comfortable medium...


Sounds like a good ol' American made Hunter Original to me. BEST and most powerful residential ceiling fan (high quality) ever made. The RPM spec is 200-160-50 for the respective speeds, moving 10,500 CFM on high speed. Most ceiling fans barely crack 5,000 CFM. they were built for Brute Force Air Movement and they really don't do well for small spaces. The best solution I have for you is if you have a Wall switch for this fan, to install a Hunter Original Wall control or remote control.

Both controls will lower the Medium speed to about 100-110 rpm, which should be much more comfortable for you.

Because the Hunter Original (I know your fan is an American made unit by your wire colors) draws more current than other fans, the Original controls are the only controls that are designed to work with your fan. Other controls do not have the current capacity for the Original motor.

Also, are you aware your fan uses oil?

New Hunter fans installed, they operate for a period of time and then shutdown. Some time later they can be switched on from the power source. Is there an internally installed thermal device which shuts...


Assuming these ceiling fans are infact the 23827 Hunter Original, did you put the bottle of oil which came with the fan in them? The Hunter original requires this bottle of oil for lubrication. If you had them installed, the installer may have not put the oil in.

with the motor/s off, spin the blades. Do they spin for a long time, or do they come to a stop quickly? If these fans were just installed, the biggest likelyhood is that the bearings are seizing from lack of lubrication.

The oil hole may be on the switch housing, as in this .pdf

Or it may be on top of the fan, as in this .pdf

Need a replacement capacitor

Voltage rating doesn't matter. 250v or 330v will work.

If this is really a 2 speed original, with the 2.5Amp motor... it will NOT have a capacitor as the motor is a shaded pole unit. The three speed electrically reversible fans, have a capacitor, which can either be in the switch housing/ oil reservoir, or the top of the motor housing, depending on year of manufacture.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem

Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Quit working

first turn it off, then rotate the fan, half turn and try to turn if on again. if it start running again you have a faulty motor, and need to replace it. or if the problem continue, try replacing the switch in the wall.
