I have an Amana dryer on a 220V 3-prong receptacle. I was turning the
timer dial and suddenly there was a pop! and then nothing - there is
no power at the dryer - the light doesn't even come on. I checked the
fuse box and rthere were no tripped breakers, but just the same I went
ahead and flipped them all off and on. Still nothing.
I have a volage sensor that detects voltage in 110V power cords, e.g.
the washer cord - I presume it ought to sense it in a 220V cord, but
don't really know if it works the same way on 220. If it does, there
is no current in the dryer cord - which tells me it should be either
the receptacle or the fuse.
Problem is, the fuse box isn't labeled, and I don't know which fuse
goes to the dryer. There are 20, 40 (2-20's) and 100 (2-50's) amp (?)
fuses in there - is there a standard which would indicate to me it
could be attached to the dryer receptacle?
I hate to call an electrician for a simple problem, but 220V scares
the crap out of me - I'm barely conversant in 110V!
TIA - Laurie
