Once you get the turbine out, open it up by unlatching the three latches and unscrewing two screws. Pull the gears out and WD40 everything. Let it sit for a bit and start turning the solver gear at the back with a pair of pliers. Once it is loose, put all the gears back together and return everything to it's place. FIXED! without buying a new turbine....
II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to
the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying
time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this
would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm
that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door.
If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the
problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew
the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of
the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running
to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device
from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer
costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble.
Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine
If you need a new timer the best place ti get it is from Rough River Appliance Repair
Phone number is (270) 230-1818 his name is Charlie and he is the best!
i have the same exact problem, tried to put the gears back together myself and couldn't figure it out. i tried to see if i could just order another car car but no luck with that either. please let me know, as well
What you should do is look at the short sides of the toner. You will notice a clear round piece with tabs sticking up. What you need to do is color the inner part of the circle with a sharpie. This should give you another 100 prints or so. After you've exhausted that option, cover the spot a few times with electrical tape. What this is doing is block the "low toner" laser from shooting through these open spaces, tricking it into thinking it is full. Be sure to be observant; when the paper begins to look 'dirty' it is REALLY time to replace the cartridge. I've gotten up to 2,000 prints extra by doing this!! Good luck!
This is a common problem. Dryer timers are advanced by a motor that turns gears and moves the dial (and internal switching) forward. The timer needs to be repaired or replaced. More than likely the latter since most timers are riveted together and cannot be repaired (unless you're someone who can put a geared jigsaw puzzle back together without any instructions since they normally fall to pieces when opened). I have tried to repair some timers and have been marginally successful, but to have a piece of mind, order the part, have it replaced (wire for wire when the unit is unplugged from the wall). If the timers look different, it is still possible that they gave you the correct timer. Verify that the new and the old timers have the same letter and number markings on each of the wires.
It is best to label the wires as you remove them from the old timer with a piece of tape and a sharp pointed marker. That way there is no question which wire is which.
Do not tirn the clock dial counter clockwise as it will brake the teeth on the plastic gear causing the clock not to turn. If the gear is broken The mfg. will mostlikley send a new one for free with an exploded view. It is very easy to replace. Don't forget to shut off the power first as the points will be exposed during your gear replacement.
