Topic: OT: Timer Component for Clothes Dryer (10 msgs / 217 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Those of you good with electronic stuff,
The dryer (Sears Kenmore) will no longer shut off (for some time now) and I
need to fix it.  My understanding is that it is the timer.  Is there
something that can be done to fix the timer or shall I just order a new one
and be done with it.  I'm assuming something has fused inside of it; I beat
the crap out of it one evening and it fixed it for a while.  I don't know
anything about electronics, but I can replace parts ... this weekend.

Eddie,
Usually not repairable, especially if it is the clockwork mechanism.
However, check the internet. The electronics assembly for our dryer
was available from a third party for almost half the cost of the
original equipment unit, and it has already survived twice as long as
the original.
Google the PN.

Thanks to everyone who responded.  The dryer is fixed.

That's no joke ... completely not what I expected to find on the inside ...
it is pretty much the same principle as a distributor cap and rotor.
Thanks again everyone!  I really appreciate it.
Have a great weekend ...

So this morning my wife says, "Thanks for fixing the dryer ... you couldn't
fix the other switch, huh?  It sure is a lot better though."
Replacing the timer took only a few minutes, but I spent a couple of hours
taking everything apart and cleaning it and doing other maintenance.  Here's
the kicker ... I HAVE THE OTHER SWITCH!  The brand new one was sitting right
next to the new timer in the same little box!  Friggin CRS ...
Gotta go take the dryer apart again ...

Eddie, you and I should never work on anything together. We have too many of
the same problems (i.e.,CRS).
Larry J (Lilboybrew).....honey, why are some of the parts still on the
table......

Hehe ...
I finished the dryer ... then I hear my wife call ... "Honey!  Where's your
electrical tape?" ... a positive attitude tells me it must be another
"opportunity" ...

O.K., I have to ask: what's 'CRS'?
