Question and Answers

Q:

On my Haier air condition 12K the stop button keeps flashing and the red button within the triangle keeps flashing. There was no power and now won't reset

A:

Check the condensate bucket to see if it is full. This may be preventing the unit from running. Empty that bucket and see if the unit will operate properly. If not, it may need to be serviced. You can call Haier at 1-877-337-3639.

Q:

I have gas leaking when I start my oven.What valve should I purchase The dual safety valve,the burner valve (7.5) or the burner valve 12k? hot surface ignitor?

A:

Your details seem to indicate that you have a gas leak in the bake burner portion of that oven. I recommend that you shut off the gas supply to the oven and have a service technician diagnose and repair that type of problem. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you smell gas leaking constantly from the range, I recommend that you exit your house and call the gas company from a neighbor's home.

If the gas smell is very slight when the bake burner is igniting then you could have a weak igniter on that bake burner assembly. The theory of operation for an ignition system that uses a dual safety gas valve is shown in the image below. If you are certain that you have a bad igniter and can safely replace that component yourself, then you can order that igniter from the Sears PartsDirect website. Unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing and replacing that igniter. If you are not completely confident that you can complete that repair yourself, I recommend that you have a service technician repair the range. If you suspect that you have a gas leak in the range, I definitely recommend that you have a service technician examine and repair the range.

Reply with additional details if you need more help with this failure.

Q:

Can my Kenmore dryer model 110.63952102 be fixed after having one problem after another?

A:

You indicated that you swapped the motor and heater relays and they seemed fine. A stuck heater relay could cause the dryer to heat constantly. A bad thermistor could also cause this problem. Since you indicated that you replaced the control board, it is possible but unlikely that this component is causing your problem. A blocked or restricted exhaust air flow through the dryer could be causing your problem. I recommend that you clean the lint screen thoroughly and wash it with water and a soft brush to eliminate any softener residue (especially if you use dryer softener sheets). Thoroughly check the exhaust duct system to the outside of your home for clogs or restrictions. Make sure that the damper on the outlet vent at the outside of your home is opening properly.

Here are some additional recommendations to resolve your current issue:

  • Carefully check the resistance of the thermistor again. The chart in the first image shows the resistance of this component at various temperatures. If possible, try heating it with an air gun (or hair dryer) to make sure that the resistance is decreasing properly with your temperature increase.
  • After replacing the thermal cut-off fuse and high limit thermostat, I recommend conducting this test:
    • Fill the dryer with a medium load of wet towels.
    • Make sure that the lint screen is clean (as described above).
    • Pull the flexible vent on the back of the dryer so that it will vent directly into the laundry room. Position the dryer so that you can measure the temperature coming out of the back of the dryer.
    • Ventilate the laundry room as much as possible.
    • Start the load on a timed cycle with high heat. (set it at around 40 minutes so that it heats properly).
    • Measure the temperature of the air coming out of the vent in the back of the dryer. The cycling temperature of the dryer is shown in the second image below. See if the dryer is cycling at the proper temperature according to this chart. If it is then you may still have an undetected restriction in the exhaust vent air flow to the outside of your home. You could also have an intermittent problem with the control board, the thermistor or the heater relay.
  • If the dryer is not cycling at the proper temperature, then you could have a stuck heater relay, a bad thermistor or you could still have a problem with the control board.

This type of dryer is not that easy to diagnose and repair on your own. Some technicians have trouble fixing this type of dryer. If the above tips help you determine the cause of your problem, then you may still be able to fix the dryer. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

We are glad to help you continue to fix the dryer if possible. Since you already replaced the control board, the other failures that are likely do not cost as much to fix.

If it gets to a point where you no longer want to try and fix this dryer, you can likely replace it with a less expensive model that just has a timer and basic cycles for about $350.
