GE (DJXR433EG7WW) broken Start Switch - Can it be By-Passed
« on: January 11, 2014, 01:50:05 PM »
The Start Switch (WE4M519) broke off where it mounts to the inside of Control Panel.
Therefore, can I bypass the switch?
If yes, which 2 wires (COM & NC or COM & NO) do I bypass?

These plastic paneled GEs are a pain in the ass. I usually just duct tape (temporary) or epoxy (permanent) the start switch in place.

  It's a momentary contact switch for starting the motor. If you bypass it, the dryer will start as soon as the timer is turned on. Terminal 4 to 2 are the momentary contacts. Terminal 4 to 3 is connected internally. You can certainly jump 4 to 2 to start the motor if you want but I wouldn't leave it that way. This dryer has a belt switch. If the belt breaks and you have the start switch bypassed, the motors going to keep running and the heat will stay on as well.

Some of these panels have a spot for a switch that isnt there. If so, drill a hole and use that spot for the switch.
Ou have to look at the back of the plastic cover to see if there is an unused tab to drill the hole near.
