no, I it did stop, and my father checked the circuit breaker and it started and stayed on for a minute or so and hasn't started since
It is working now.
I put the machine back together and was turning it on and off. I noticed twice there was a spark in the back where the wires are connected to the dryer out of about 8 tries. Then I just tried it about ten times in a row with no spark. Perhaps I should turn the electricity off and tighten up in there?
