yes, at the left side of the nameplate there is 110, but that is not all part of the same model number
You were right about the model number including the leading 110, so the whole thing is "110.86983110" I'll just give you the rest of the information exactly as it appears on the nameplate: 3 wire 120/240 volts 60 Hz Motor 4.0 Amps Heator and accessories 23 Amps. I guess what I'm really wondering to begin with is what is a typical repair likely to cost me, because I'm considering buying a new one. We bought this dryer in 1991. If it is inexpensive to repair it myself or have someone repair it, then I would be happy to pay the $25 to have you walk me through it some more. I do have a volt meter that an alarm technician didn't want and left behind, but I don't know if it works.
