Default Back vent plugged by chipmunks. Machine stopped
Model Number: Series 500 Gas dryer   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

Discovered 2 chipmunks wedged in back of dryer, head first, wedged in the "exhaust hole". Obviously, they were blocking the heated air from leaving machine. Heard a loud noise approx 5 min after starting. Came down to a stopped machine. Removed the vent tubing and discovered the little *******! The machine will not turn on. It's only 3 years old and we are bound and determined to fix this ourselves. Any hints or suggestions to lead us in the right direction? Thanks for your time...
