Question and Answers

Q:

Will a bad buzzer relay on a Amana Electric Dryer keep the dryer's heat from coming on?

A:

I posted a wiring diagram for your dryer in the image below. The normal voltage path to the motor is traced in the blue line. When you jumped the buzzer circuit, you are probably getting voltage through the path traced in bright red. In that situation, you could have a bad timer or a wiring failure in that circuit before the buzzer circuit connects to the normal voltage supply for the motor.

I traced the normal voltage path for the heating element in dark red and green. If that timer is bad, then you will not get the voltage through the path traced in dark red to the heating element. Based on your symptoms, you will probably need to replace that timer to fix the dryer.

These tips may help you repair those dryer failures. You can order parts from this page: Amana Dryer Model NED5100TQ1 Parts . Unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Yes. The contact in the timer that closes the path C to B is apparently bad. The timer motor shown on that wiring diagram will get L1 voltage and will have a path to the L2 potential (green leg) through the motor centrifugal switch (that is a 240 volt timer motor). As long as the motor is running, the timer motor will run. That internal component in the timer is working although the contact C to B is apparently not operating properly. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

I see a buzzer and a switch to turn on and off the buzzer. That buzzer should be sounding if you are running current through that circuit. You may need to replace that buzzer if it is bad. I recommend that you fix the timer issue first and get the dryer running. Restore the original wiring on that buzzer circuit before replacing that timer. If you replace the timer and the dryer works properly, you can then fix the buzzer if necessary. If you are certain that the buzzer is "open" electrically (does not have continuity) and you want to replace it at the same time that you replace the timer, then you can do that too. If the switch is bad (and not the buzzer) then you can take the same approach. I hope that this answers your question. If you need more help, let us know.
