Question and Answers

Q:

I found the mod # cocerning my perviuos question. It's Sears Gas Dryer Mod # 41793142300. The start switch purchased and installed did not solve the problem

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There are two other components which can fail and prevent the motor from starting. I assume the motor does not hum when start switch is pushed/rotated to the start position.

The timer must close contact B to C in order to supply voltage to the motor. When the start is pressed/turned, it completes the neutral path from the door switch to the motor and it should start. If the door switch is faulty, the path of neutral will not be completed to start switch and motor. If the timer is faulty, the motor will not receive any voltage in order to start.

I added an image below of the wiring diagram. I traced the circuits in Red and Green. The red represents the 120 voltage supply and green is the neutral. There must be 120 volts present across M6 and M1 and M5 when start is pressed.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
