Frigidaire FDE647RFS1 won't start

7 posts in this topic

working on a 

Frigidaire FDE647RFS1

It won't start, has power , fuseable link checks out ok.

When plugged in the light inside the dryer does come on.

but when you turn the time it doesn't move on it's own , no clicking sound either.

press start button nothing.

This is brother inlaw they bought it a few months ago and are just finishing building the house.

they put a new power cord on this looks good

have 110v fron neutral to either side and 240 on the outside so power looks good.

also door switch test ok

If it's brand new you should contact the manufacturer for service because it is still under warranty.

1) Has this Dryer worked OK after the Power Cord was changed ?

2) Did it fail before the Power Cord was changed ?

was working when picked up. that is before the cord was replaced. the cord is ok.

I checked the voltages at the back of the dryer and are correct.

 

I suspect the timer but need input before ordering one.

whit the dryer pluged in the timer doesnot turn and there is no sound from the timer motor

Why was the Power Cord changed ?

Was a 3-wire or was a 4-wire Cord ?
NOW a 3-wire or a 4-wire Cord ?

 

Does the Timer run or make noise if the Start Button is held in ?

Check the Timer Connector, may be loose from the move.

3 Wire Don't know why It didn't come with a cord

checking the timer motor tomorrow and will see if I have a spare kicking around .

no timer noise when start button held in

 

Question though, even if the timer motor was bad that should only mess up the dry times and cycles.

Shouldn't It still start when manually put to say mid cycle

...Question though, even if the timer motor was bad that should only mess up the dry times and cycles.

1) with a 3-wire Cord, there should also be a Strap or Wire from the Dryer Center Terminal to the (chassis / ground / cabinet)

2) Maybe bad Timer internal contacts, OR a bad Timer Motor, but not both at the same time. . .  

check that connector... the Cement Balancing Weights may have disloged it.
