      All Appliantology tech members are invited to join in this workshop on all things Appliantological: bidness, customers, tools, troubleshooting, flavorite brewski, whatever. Webcams and microphones are open and live!
      This workshop is also a great time for any students at Master Samurai Tech to bring any and all questions about the coursework. We're happy to walk through any concepts you're having trouble with. Think of it like office hours with your teachers. 
      If you have a specific appliance problem you'd like us to talk about, post it here! We need a problem statement and a PDF of the tech sheet or schematic so we can all see it on screen share. If you have a PDF that isn't already in the File library here at Appliantology, send it to us by attaching it to the contact form. 
      Also, follow this Calendar Event so you'll get notified of new posts here. Look for the "Follow" button either at the top of the topic on desktop or below the topic on mobile.

yep , you got it  !     BUT , i just have to say this is why you don't need to assume what is wrong , this could have been a real mess because of a cracked knob.

Agreed; I was pretty sure there was a misundertstanding of what the problem actually was.  So I'd guess the cyclying of flame was because the timer was likely in the auto sensing dry mode, or perhaps the cool down mode.

Yep.....it was all over the place. My wife was moving the dial, and it buzzed and shut off, in what looked like the middle of the regular time cycle. That's when we started playing with it..

no worries !!  you are right about not knowing the problem , he just wanted to know how to bypass a thermal ,   if he had told us what was going on to begin with ,it would have went smoother .  people have no idea how many things can cause a no heat condition ,  just because your thermal was bad on your last dryer doesn't mean that's what is wrong now . then there is all the u tube videos that most of the time doesn't apply to the machine they are working on .  it it getting hard to help diy er's because of all the gibberish they read before they ask us

Keep in mind that timer is designed to only turn clockwise, so if someone is using excess force to turn it counter-clockwise that can crack the knob (and is really the only reason I've ever seen it crack), not to mention potentially damaging the timer. By the way, all the knobs are the same so you can temporally just swap it with one you don't use that often, like the signal control.

I need you to talk to my wife about this and cleaning the lint screen.
