Thanks again for the help Beam. Got the motor and capacitor thru this site. Repair Clinic I believe it was?

After asking alot of questions from anyone who would listen, I was told it sounded like a blown fuse or the circuit breaker had tripped. Didn't even know there was 2 fuses behind a plastic cover in the power disconnect  box. My neighbor came over with a tool and poked around and said there was no power. I cycled the breaker and tried again, still nothing. Neighbor tested the fuses and one was shot. Went and bought 2 new fuses and replaced them. Success! Fired right up and running great! Thanks for all your information, very helpful. Again all of this would have been unnecessary if I had just tightened the set screw on the blade. Looks like the fuses did the job they are made to do.

Thank you Sohei. I did not mention in my original post that I did reset the blade but the motor is not coming on. When you turn the AC on the contact switch engages but does not seem to be any power from the capacitor to the motor. not even a humming sound like it is trying to turn. I am ordering a new fan blade but isn't going to do much good if the motor won't come on. Thats why I was thinking capacitor.

In reply to Chat in RI ( guessing that is the "Ocean State" ) the heating element does not warm up when advancing to the drying cycle. I will check the heating element and the hi limit T stat and go from there.


Hoping K dog is correct.

Where is that fuse? Easy access?
