Kenmore Dryer
« on: May 25, 2011, 08:20:12 PM »
Nice oldie here, I think the date inside the console said 1967?  But it won't stay running once you release the start switch.  Since the tech sheet is long gone and I can't seem to find a schematic, the start switch seems to be just a single pole momentary switch.  Is the centrifugal switch on the motor what keeps it running?  Seems to from what I traced out (and it is even still available) but I thought it wouldn't hurt to pick you brains. :)

That would be the motor switch.  Even though it's old it still takes the common 279827 motor.
