Hay I had that thing on my blog for a while now Jimbo, I thought it would be nice since you cannot get too much material from GE. I stole it from Sammy. :D

OK he took apart twice...diagnostics say blower is okay at the moment, but dryer starts off okay then sounds like a very loud rumbling sound and gets louder if he puts vent hose on it...any ideas on this one???

He probably messed up the motor then. What do you mean he broke the fan blade?

okay...when he was taking the old motor off...a small piece of one of the blades on the fan chipped off...he installed the new motor just fine...however, now it sounds like a jet plane taking off!!!  How could he have ruined the new blower already???  That small of a chip in the fan blade would cause that kind of a ruckus???
