There appears to be no voltage across any of the thermal fuses
purple 40 to ground reads 120 volts when on
black 33 to ground has 120 volts when running
I jumpered pink 50 to black 33 and still no heat, if the heater was bad would there not be infinite resistance across the heater?
I have 0 volts when I test across the heater box
I tried to upload what I have on here, but it keeps denying permission.
I tried that, it won't let me. Just a question should there not be power across the fuses if they are good.
is there an email address or something I can send this wiring diagram to? nothing I do will allow me to insert it in this message.
What are the chances that the motor is not reaching full speed and therefore the heat cycle is never being initiated
I don't have anything long enough to jumper it out I will have to leave it for tonight and fix something up tomorrow. I replied to one of these emails with the schematics for this unit.
I got the diagrams, It can only be a couple things. Go from the Purple wire on the high limit to Black wire on the either cycling thermostat. Turn it on and see if you see 240 volts. If you do not either the centrifugal switch is bad or the heater by pass switch is off or bad. Lastly you have to make sure you have 240 volts to the unit. Make sure the terminal block where the cord connects is not burned up.
I tested as described above and read no voltage. How do I test the centrifugal switch and the heater switch?
I checked things carefully and when I pulled the timer out of the box low and behold a wire had fallen off the heater bypass switch, what a pain to find, but my knowledge of these Maytag dryers has just gone way up, thanks for the help.
