Default coin op dryer timer starts but dryer doesn't turn on

Hi, Looking for suggestions. I have a coin slide operated dryer. I insert money and it turns on the timer but when you press the start button the dryer doesn't start. It had been run by a tennant non-stop for hours. Is there a cool down period? I unplugged it so the timer stopped and would cool down. Or could it be a thermostat or something else?

All comments appreciated!

Exclamation coin op dryer timer starts but dryer doesn't turn

We need more info. Model # ?? Gas or Electric? I's probably as simple as a thermal fuse or door switch. Please post all the info you have.. wrench

It's an Inglis Commercial Dryer. All the stickers have fallen off it, not sure of the model. It is electric. I was thinking most likely the thermal fuse being if ran non-stop for hours and I tried to use it right after and it wouldn't start. It has been off for 24 hours and the same thing is still happening.

Thumbs up coin op dryer timer starts but dryer doesn't turn on

Remove the back panel and look for a thermal fuse. Usually a ceramic-housed type. It could be round (about 2" long) or thin about(about 1/2" wide and 2" long. May have one of these numbers on them. 3390719 or 3392519. Let me know what you find.. wrench
