Timer won't stop after cycle finished.


Dryer will not shut off:

The timer: Located in the control console of the dryer the timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit and the timer motor itself. A defective timer motor or a defect in the timer's electrical contacts can cause the timer motor to fail and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made when the dryer is unplugged. Another test u can do is observe by eyesight and see does the timer advance or is it stuck on one cycle?


1. On gas and electric dryers that have an "Auto Dry" cycle, the cycling thermostat is often used to advance the timer as well regulate the drum temperature. Essentially, thermostat will alternately turn on the heat source or the timer motor when the temperature has been satisfied. To check this thermostat, you will have to check for power to the timer motor with a multi-meter, during a cycle. This is a live voltage test and caution should be used.

2. Some dryers will use a cool down thermostat to tumble the clothes without heat, at the end of the dry cycle. Power is routed through this thermostat to the drive motor to keep it running until the drum temperature has dropped to a specific temperature. If this thermostat fails it can cause the drum to turn indefinitely or until the door is opened. You can check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made with the power removed from the dryer.

Lastly check the moister sensor for OHMS according to ur schematic as it must show a certain amount of ohms as per ur unit. When unit has been on short while

Defrost timer does not advance after defrost


Hi,

During this time of defrost you manually advanced into, Did the heater turn off them self? If they did the defrost thermostat does work, if the heaters stayed on the entire time (1hr) than the thermostat needs to be replaced as well as the timer. The thermostat is a cut off device to prevent the over heating of the freezer and liner (safety device). Think of a defrost timer as an egg timer, this timer runs regardless of function just advances like a clock. The thermostat turns off the heaters when they reach a temp rather then time. I hope this answered your question, good luck

LG 47LD450 comes on, then unexpectedly shuts itself off. No standby power indicator, no nothing. It turns itself back on after 2-3 minutes. This isn't a sleep timer issue. What else could it be?


Well I'm not a T.v. expert but sounds similar to over heating problems. Is the ventilation covered or filled with dust? Try unplugging it and take an air can to the vents to blow out any dust it's collected over the years.

Intermatic dt8003


Copy following link to help identify timer and download product manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#DT8003
If this is not your product, add a comment and describe timer in detail. Otherwise we're guessing at your product.
The 8003 power strip timer has 4 outlets that are controlled by timer, and 4 outlets that operate normally without any timing function.
It appears you can press the Mode button until ON is displayed, and that this mode will not change until Mode is changed again.
However, if timing functions resume at next set point, then re-program timer so it is ON 23 hours and 59 minutes each day, and turns OFF 1 minute each day... or just go buy a new power stripe without timer functions.

Electric Kenmore Dryer 110.62622101 - Dryer will only work 'correctly' on timed dry. Auto dry will not time off and dryer gets super hot! Thermostats are replaced. I only use autodry - low heat. Using...


If timed drying is working the timer relay section is working fine but with the auto timer the thermostat must give the instructions to the timer unit to process and cut off accorrdingly. Since you have replaced the thermostat -- hope you made sure the thermostat was the same type- the fault is indicating to the timer unit by itself. The input of the thermocouple is faulty and is not reacting to the changes in temp to cutt off. You will need to replace the timer unit -- in fact many general use types of electronic temperature control units are available which can be used and can be coupled if the original unit is expensive. But try to check the thermostat input section. Good day

What is function of bi-metallic thermostats in older Frigidaire Imperial 19 cu. ft. refrigerator w/freezer on bottom. Freezer is getting too warm at times but overall not as cold as should be. I am going...


Good day,
The bi-metal or also called a limiter or defrost thermostat is wired in series with the main heater.
When the timer switches the machine from the running mode to the defrost mode, it shuts off all cooling and turns the main heater on. This could be anywhere from 21 minutes to 35 minutes. The bimetal is a thermostat. It shuts the main heater off when the coil reaches approx. 50 degrees. Without it, the machine would get extremely hot, defrosting all the food, and in some cases even begin to melt plastic parts in the freezer compartment. It's also a safety device, in case the timer went into defrost and failed there. Without it, it would totally destroy the machine, even to the point of creating a possible fire hazard.
