Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
Just got a dryer from a friend, moved it into our place and plugged it in, but it won't start. Not sure what the model number is 2406028 CV 54 ?
ngfam1 at your service! Boy I love my job!
1-Has no power?
2-Won't turn on?
3-Or won't dry?
Sometimes you can have no heat when the vent line is clogged, or there is a fuse inside blown, or the old style electric dryers I've seen where the wire connecting to the element is loose and causes an arc spark like a spark plug with the electricity jumping across the gab and burning the wire off!.
I've found the connector in the older unit that looks like a male female connector, burnt and melted off too!
1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.This will give no heat!
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent is even half blocked with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this second and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door, and or remove the screen permanently!
I DID AND NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
2 years that mine is off and it's all is fine.
Remember that if a dryer is 9 years old or more It is usually not worth investing good money into bad equiptment!
The new washers of any model or cost level will be more of a money saver than them!
Water,power, and detergent!
Let me know what you do and how it pans out!
If none of these tasks remedy the heat problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
Let me know the end results!
You will be fine
Bless You, ngafm1
