SOURCE: no heat

You have an airflow restriction and it's most likely in the vent inside the wall leading outside. I know this because the dryer is trying to do its' job (and that the default "fail" mode on the t'stats is "open". That is to say... if a t'stat fails, the dryer won't heat).

The only other thing that causes an overheat condition is a failed blower assy. When these fail, though, the dryer makes an awful racket. And since you didn't mention an awful racket, I go with clogged vent pipes in the walls.

When my customers call who have the same symptoms as you, I don't even bother running the service call (costs me money, but I'm an honest guy). I recommend they call a dryer vent service or a chimney sweep service.

Hope this helped!


P.S. The way to test my diagnosis is simple. Disconnect the dryer vent from the wall and start the dryer. That's it! You'll see the flame behaving properly and the dryer will function normally.

SOURCE: kenmore model number 41784052500 runs

did he check the timer? If the machine isn't getting a command to go into the start mode, that could be your problem ,, However Label the wires connecting to your timer motor so that you will be able to correctly reconnect them later. Carefully remove the wires. Do not pull on the wire itself. Instead, use needle nose pliers to pull gently on the wire connector.

Set your ohmmeter to the R x 1 setting. Take each probe and touch it to one wire. A normal reading for most dryers is in the 2000 to 3000 ohms range. Try to locate a schematic for your dryer. It should be in one of the service areas of your dryer or in the owner's manual. This schematic should indicate the proper resistance reading for your specific timer motor.

How do I set up my memorex MLTD2232 tv for cable use

I could not find any manuals for your model number, but the instructions for a different Memorex model may be close enough. For example, the cable setup instructions provided for the MLTD2622 are very similar to those for other brands of televisions. Look on pages 19-21 of the manual for the MLTD2622.

Fan oven will not turn off can only isolate at switch on wall all other switches working

Hello Eamon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The identity number that you provided is not a model number. If you took it off your user manual it is not the model number.

I need your model number. It is located on a label on the face of your oven or on the side of your oven door.

Send me your model number so I can look at the wiring diagram.

Your oven fan runs for 2 reasons:
1.) To circulate the hot air in your oven.
2.) To vent the hot air in your oven when the heat is too hot.

Send me your model number so I can see what you have and help you.

Induction oven f30

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are receiving an F30 error code on your Electrolux oven. I will be more than happy to assist you. In order to better assist, I will need the model number of your oven. If this is a wall oven, you can find the model number located on the back of the door. If this is a range, you will find the model number either on the back of the door or in the bottom drawer. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Why won't my oven let me set the temperature after a power failure?

Good Morning Annette,

I see that you are having trouble with setting the temperature of your oven on your range, model# FGB24S5A, after a power failure. I also see that you have reset your appliance by unplugging it and are receiving an error message of SAG or 5AB. I have looked into the model number that you have listed and it shows as a wall oven. I also do not show either of those error codes you have shown. If you can please get me the model number off your range, so I can better assist. The model number will either be right inside the oven on the back of the door or it may be located inside the bottom drawer. Looking forward to hearing from you.

How do i remove the front panel from the whirlpool accubake double oven

1. You need to pull the oven out a few inches to be able to access two screws on each side of the control panel. On my oven, I needed to open the lower oven and remove a screw from each side to allow a vertical cover piece to be removed. With those pieces removed, there were two screws on each side that went into the wood frame around the oven. I also had a screw on the bottom of the oven, but it didn't not look standard. With those screws removed, the oven pulled out fairly easy. Just need to pull out far enough so that the two screws on the control panel assembly are accessible.
2. Remove those two screws and the panel can slide out once a number of cables have been removed. I took a picture of the connections before removing so I was sure I would put them back correctly (see below). The ribbon cable comes off by raising the plastic piece on top of the connector.

I replaced my panel with a Sears part that had been rebuilt. I couldn't find any new parts anywhere. It's been three weeks and, so far, my oven is working fine.

The light went out an the turntable won't stop when I close the door...i tried to push clear, but it still turns. I couldn't find my model number on the below pull down, but my model is 721.8001...

721.80019401 (without spaces) is the correct model number.

If it was the cooktop lamp(s) that went out, I would suspect that it shorted, damaging the control circuit board.

We see and repair this problem on a regular basis with our $39.95 repair service.

Or you can order a new control circuit board (part number 6871W1S354A) for $75.80 from the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have an old whirlpool electric range model number WGE33300, not self cleaning oven for many years. The four top electric burners are fine, but today both oven heating elements will not operate and the...

I was looking at your wiring diagram. A red wire goes to a limit and then enters into a terminal box and feeds L-2 power to both element. I would be looking real close at that limit. It has a orange wire on one side and a red wire o the other terminal and most of these here limits look a lot like this one.
I am gonna try and link ya to the diagram but I doubt WP will allow it. Mighty funny both ements in the oven have took a dump. I suspect that limit. Next I will try and find a part number for that limit and maybe we can see that puppy. Hang on. Looks like it could be NUMBER 8
now let see how much that puppy costs and hopefully what she looks like. Hang on. $40 bucks
Dang that seems to me like a lot. Notice they don't post a pic either. Know why? Because they know yall can get generic ones by looking at the stamped metal temp numbers on the part. A klixon is a klixon. This ques is makin me curious to bust open my parts catalog and see what come up with.

We need to purchase a broil element for a wolf Gang Puck Bistro oven.(counter top model # BT0BR0050) How would I obtain this part?

There are any number of resources on the Internet that may have this part, although it may be that the manufacturer of the oven made this a non-replaceable part.

In searching the WP website, they don't offer the element for aBT0BR0040 , so unlikely they ever provided one for the BT0BR0050 . Not surprising with these perceived high quality/low cost built appliances.

The only thing else I would suggest is to see if you can even get the old element out. If you can, then there might be a chance.
