Question and Answers

Q:

Why does the service light on my Craftsman garage door opener BBU keep coming on and beeping?

A:

Since one battery only has 9.2 volts DC, it is possible that a bad battery is causing this problem. You can try replacing the battery to see if this will correct the problem. An internal failure may be causing your problem but it is unlikely based on your description.

Q:

Compressor electric

A:

To convert the motor on the compressor from 120 volts to 240 volts, you have to move some wires in the terminal box of the motor.

I am sending you 2 images with instructions for converting compressor motors from 120 to 240. If the wiring on the image is the same as the wiring in your motor, the instructions will work. The instructions are probably on a tag on the back of the plate that covers the terminal box of the motor.

Q:

electric dryers

A:

Raquel F provided some basic troubleshooting from the owner's manual. If these tips did not help then you will need to move on to some advanced troubleshooting and diagnosis to determine the cause of your dryer problem. I assume that you are indicating that the dryer will not start. The first image below shows the wiring diagram for your dryer with the drive motor circuit traced in red. A failed door switch or a blown thermal fuse are probably the most common failures that would prevent your dryer from running. I recommend that you check the thermal fuse first. Unplug the dryer to disconnect electrical power and remove the back panel. The location of the thermal fuse is shown in the second image below. To test this fuse, remove one wire and measure the resistance across the leads of the component with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance if the fuse is good. If you measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced. You can verify that this is the only failure that is preventing your dryer from running by taping the two wires that go to the thermal fuse together with electrical tape. This will "bypass" the fuse for a short test. Reassemble the dryer and see if the motor runs. If it does then replacing the thermal fuse will fix this dryer problem. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an important safety component that must be replaced. Also, check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction. A problem with exhaust air flow could cause the thermal fuse to blow again shortly after replacing it.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you can check the door switch in a similar manner. I provided access information for this component in the third image below. Unplug the dryer and check for continuity (near zero ohms of resistance) through the switch with the door closed. If the door switch is defective, it will need to be replaced.

A bad push-to-start switch will also prevent the dryer from running. You can unplug the dryer and access this component by opening the console as shown at the bottom of the third image. Check for continuity through this component with the button pushed in.

A bad timer, failed drive motor or a wiring failure between components could also prevent the dryer from running. A technician will normally need to diagnose and repair this type of problem. Here is a link to the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .
