Q:

What is wrong with my 1984 dryer?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the motor is actually starting and running but the drum is not turning would indicate a broken belt. If the belt is broken I added a YouTube video showing how to access and install a new belt.

If the motor just makes a humming sound when start is pushed instead of starting and running then the motor will likely need to be replaced. If the motor hums instead of starting, I added YouTube video showing how to remove and replace the drive motor.

If the motor just hums when start is pushed, open the door and manually spin the drum counter clockwise and then shut the door and press start. If it starts, replace the motor.

Parts can be looked up and ordered from Sears PartsDirect

Q:

What is the power output of my 1984 microwave model 88753?

A:

I don't find information based on the exact model numbers indicated in your detail. With the microwave being this old, I may not have access to the output specifications. The measured output does sound low. I am thinking that this model should be putting out about 800 watts but I could be wrong. I recommend checking the voltage at your electrical outlet. Low supply voltage can affect power output.

If you need more help, recheck the model number and resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

I recently acquired a 1984 Sear's tablesaw. The belt slips when I run hardwood thru it. What causes this?

A:

I suspect the slippage is due to an old belt and possibly a dull blade. Replace the belt and blade and you should have a good saw.
