Sounds like you may be losing power to the dryer by a bad connection or other cause. Will it restart immediately when it goes off?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

the voltage is not breaking down at the source of the dryer. i am under the impression that it might be the circuit board

the voltage is not breaking down at the source of the dryer. i am under the impression that it might be the circuit board

yes there might be a voltage break down but it's not from the source because i installed another dryer there and it works just fine. so i am almost certain that it's an internal problem with the dryer.

and also veiwing the wiring diagram the ohms on the heating element checks out the motor runs fine, i over rode the motor with 110 line volt and it's just fine

Expert:  MRANSWER replied 4 years ago.

Then the problem would reside within the control itself as you have pretty much answered what other issues it could be by doing what you have done.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i was just under the impression that the tech support here would have involve more depth, as a technician myself i am open to new ideas and felt like you would have a more detailed report stating specifics.

your respone was a wide open response and didnt' narrow the possible causes.

need to be a bit more convincing, your response was too shake for a sale

Expert:  MRANSWER replied 4 years ago.
This is a dryer, not a space shuttle. Why is more needed here? You eliminated the other issues it could be, so why beat a dead horse?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

it is a dryer ur right , the it contains a circuit board price at about 200 dollars, and i would just prefer to get a second opinion before trying the trail and error theory, which it appears that you would by.

its just a possiblity someone else might of had a similar problem ,eg a on board fuse and could spread some light on this .

ever thought of that
