Question and Answers

Q:

I smell burning underneath where the motor housing is, it seems to me that the choke 5.5 MH, #185582 is what smells burnt.

A:

Thank you for your question on the treadmill motor choke getting hot.

The first thing I would suggest is to see if the walking belt needs to be lubricated.

If you have recently lubricated the belt please raise the incline to the highest level and then position yourself on the front of the belt next to the console give yourself a little push to see how far the belt will travel with you on it.

If you are able to glide on the belt about 3/4 of the way back from the front on the belt then the belt lube is okay. If not you may want to lube the walking belt to reduce the resistance on the motor and choke drive system.

It may be that the choke is just failing and I would suggest changing it before damage has been done to the motor controller.

The hotter the choke gets the more the controller will heat up.

Without the model number I cannot be any more specific on helping you with this problem. If you can provide the model number we can continue to troubleshoot the problem.

Q:

Does the Whirlpool model MH 1160XSQ-1 microwave have the ability to ventilate outside of the room in which it is installed? Mine vents into the kitchen! MH1160xsq-1

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I added a link to the Installation Instructions which will show you how to vent it outside.

I also added an image in a second reply with the procedure of changing the vent motor position in order to vent it out the back or top.

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

Q:

Replacing the heating element on my Kenmore Dryer model # 67902791 serial # MH5008107

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dryer. I will be able to assist you with replacing the element. First, unplug or turn the power off to the dryer. Then click here to watch a video on how to replace the element. The video shows removing the whole heater housing but it is not necessary to remove it. Once the front access panel is removed, remove the screw in the cover plate in front of the element. Then remove the screw securing the element. Once it is removed, pull the element out of the housing. Slide the new element in and reassemble.

I have looked up the service history on the dryer and there are no recalls on this dryer. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the dryer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.
