View Full Version : looking for an appliance handyman in the East Bay/Oakland area

Hey calguns!

So the house the wife and I moved into has an older Kenmore Series 90 gas clothes dryer. It worked fine until last week; now the motor comes one, the drum spins, but I get no heat. I know the gas connection is good because it *did* work just fine.

I've done a little google-fu and tried the other settings on the heat dial - no dice.

I don't have the tools (ohm meter?) or know how to do anything else than curse at it, so I turn to you in my times of trouble.

Any appliance handy men in the East Bay/Oakland area want to give me a hand? I can pay in ammo or cash!

I've had good luck with Santa Clara Appliances on E14th and like 50th ave. There is also a small appliance shop on SPA and 32nd street, it's at the south end of the little triangle park where all the crackheads hang out :) I dunno if they do service calls tho.

I'll make some calls.

Looks like I need to check the 'thermal fuse' in the back of the machine also.

I think that's next to the 'flux capacitor'.
