Customer Question
Tappan Heavy Duty Dryer...

Tappan Heavy Duty Dryer Won't start Just replaced "Repair Kit" and Belt. Unit hums and runs fine if I start it. I'm an experienced electrical tech. How does this motor start? Starting capacitor??? Can't find one anywhere!

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

Help me here please. This unit has been idle for several days while I awaited parts (Thanksgiving weekend) What does the thermostat have to do with the motor starting? (I'm not trying to be hard to live with here. I really want to understand ! Thanks) The unit is out in the middle of my floor. no filter connected.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is there a wiring diagram on line? I found a number "131289000 N" but can not find a model number anywhere!
