My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an authorized Frigidaire service tech and I can help you today.
Orville, Give me two minutes to look up your model and try to get the wiring diagram for you.
take three.... :)
this is going to be harder then anticipated to get the wiring diagram for you. Your machine has been discontinued.
There was no tech sheet in the console area where the timer was? if it wasnt there, did you try pulling the back access panel off the machine? sometimes it is there.
No tech sheet. I searched the machine thoroughly. I realize its an older machine, but I thought that it would be easier because of that. But sadly, no. No diagram.
ok. let me do some more digging. be right back.
Waiting with worms in my mouth..... I figured it would be a challenge....
sorry for the delay. it looks like i will not be able to get the correct wiring diagram for your model and serial machine.
do you want me to try to walk you through it anyway?
I would be interested in trying anything at this point...
the timer you have now, the new one, is it part number(NNN) NNN-NNNN cost about $130?
Its the original timer. The original problem was front seals, belt, bearing and idler. The timer always worked well.
and it just got disconnected as you were working on it?
yeah, I was moving the top back into position and the connectors came off the timer.
darn it. hate it when that happens
Stoopid me did not think to write any of the info down or take a picture....
ok. all the wires came off the timer? what are terminal labels on the timer and the wires?
thats ok. it happens to all of us. now next time this wont happen again, right?
let me see if I can get you through the rewire just from experience on working with these machines
Copy dat. I ALWAYS do take pictures and make notes, but this time no. Terminals are A,B,C,AD,TM,TD Wires are White, Tan or Brown, Orange, Pink, Red. The Tan connector is a splice of two tan wires, or a "Y" with the connection at the single end, not two at the "Y."
ok. lets see what we can do here.
power is off to the dryer now, correct?
power is off, gas not connected, unit downstairs, me upstairs but I can go to the machine.
ok. do you see the red and white wires? If you follow them back, where do they go? those should be your main power wires. Your L1 and L2 wires.
ok...I might have to remove the drum to do this, right?
if you cant see it, yes. but if it is that difficult for you to do now, dont worry about it. I will call frigidaire directly tomorrow and have them send me the wiring diagram for your model machine in the morning tomorrow. This will be the easiest and most accurate way for us to wire the timer back in.
I will get back to you here tomorrow. what is your availability?
About this time tomorrow would be perfect. I am in Tijuana and have long days...so yeah, around this time.
ok. that is better for me as well. I will try to get the info we need and get back to you here tomorrow.
have a good night.
Thanks man. I mean, Im game for tearing the unit down, but it would probably be a safer bet to get the diagram if you can. If not, then we can do the routine tomorrow..... you too. have a good one...
yes. it would be easier, safe and better to do it with the wiring diagram. Talk to you tomorrow.
o ver and out.
just bookmark or save this page to your favorites so you can quickly come back here tomorrow.
OK. Got it. Talk to you tomorrow...
