btw
with those cams you can sometimes just cut off some cogs to increase run time
however i believe the cogs have to be all evenly spaced when you are done
for an hour you need 3 cogs, so you cant cut the 45 minute cam cause the 3 cogs left wont be even
if you ever get a 1/2 hour one you can cut pins till you have 3 left for one hour

Thanks---I'll check this out when I replace the 4 cams (possibly today) to verify if this is a possibility on these model dryers.

I finished this today--was very simple to do.

The 4 pin cams do have the pins evenly spaced. The 3 pin cam have pins that are set in a triangular pattern.

With all of the vended 208 volt dryers running 60 minutes instead of the original 45 minutes---the building owners will be happy to see a significant drop in complaints.

And a significant rise in power consumption.

Not having the tenants popping into the building office every day to complain and demand new coin-op laundry will make it seem worthwhile.

Most Laundry mat guys want to make more money by speeding up the timer so it will shut down faster requiring more money to be inserted into the machine. My friend has  a contract with several laundry mats in the area. Here is how he does it. He will repair any machine and provide parts for no charge at all anytime. He gets 50% of the take. He totes the keys to the machines. He orders the machines for the owner and installs them. When the natural gas went up sky high he ordered faster cams. He changed motors to ones that ran faster. He added a water well to the rear of some buildings. The water system figured out a way to charge him for sewer use anyways. You can't win.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

how many Dryers are there ?

Have you checked with the Electric Power Company for the cost to run a 240v Service Line ?

After leaving this Earth, "Do you want the smoking or non-smoking section?"

The arrangement for the dryers is bit odd.

This laundry room has 4 electric dryers.

All of the others are natural gas.
