Default Timer ON DRYER NOT RIGHT, TOO FAST
Model Number: FEZ831AS1   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I Have Changed The Following Parts: Timer, Heater Assembly, Thermal Overload, Bearing Kit And Still The Dryer Isn't Right. When I Try To Use The Timed Dry Side, It Runs For 10 Minutes And Turns Off. When I Use The Normal Cycle, It Lasts For 30 Minutes, But It Should Run For An Hour. What Have I Missed? The Only Parts I Can Even Find That Might Be An Issue Are The Following: Thermostat Heater And Thermostat Control. Could They Be The Issue? If So, Which One Or Both? Thanks, My Wife Is Driving Me Crazy About This.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for FRIGIDAIRE FEZ831AS1 Lc - Frigidaire | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the wiring diagram
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodin...134135600e.pdf

And a manual, is fairly general. I am not sure if it is for your exact model.
http://frigidaireservicetips.com/pdfs/488_3.pdf

Please get rid of the capitals at the start of every word, just makes it harder to read.

I Have Changed The Following Parts: Timer, Heater Assembly, Thermal Overload, Bearing Kit And Still The Dryer Isn't Right.

Only part of the above parts that can shut the unit off is the timer.
You did not say if the timer advances to the off position?

When I Try To Use The Timed Dry Side, It Runs For 10 Minutes And Turns Off. When I Use The Normal Cycle, It Lasts For 30 Minutes, But It Should Run For An Hour. What Have I Missed?
By turning Off, I assume you mean the entire unit re: motor.
Can you turn it back on right away or do you have to wait several minutes.
If you have to wait, this is usually the motor overheating.
I cannot explain why the difference between timed and auto modes.


The Only Parts I Can Even Find That Might Be An Issue Are The Following: Thermostat Heater And Thermostat Control. Could They Be The Issue? If So, Which One Or Both?
Doubt either will cause the unit to shut off as neither is in the motor's circuit path.
When running the motor circuit path is:
N neutral, DOOR SWITCH contacts C/NO, MOTOR M6, motor's RUN winding, motor's internal thermal protect, THERMAL LIMITER (fuse), DRYER TIMER contacts C/B, L2


Thanks, My Wife Is Driving Me Crazy About This.

Well at least she has an excuse, mine just drives me crazy.

Need more info on what is happening when it shuts down?
Need info on what you have to do to restart it?
Was this the original problem with the unit?

It does sound like a bad spot in the timer. In timed dry the timer motor gets power all the time, in auto modes it only gets power when the heater is shut off. That would explain the different shut down times.

Yes, the timer advanced to the off position and can be turned right back on, not the motor overheating.

The timer will advance 10 minutes, then turn off. You can restart by manually moving the timer and hitting start. There is no motor overheating, as you can restart immediatly after it turns off.

This is the 3rd timer, I figured the same as you, sounded like a timer issue. It's not, can't beleive 3 of them are bad, with exactly the same issue on each of them.

Does the timer advance to the end of the cycle and does it do the same thing in each cycle?

If I set it up on normal dry, it goes completely through the entire cycle, just does it in 1/2 the time it is supposed to( the cycle should be 1 hour and is only 1/2 hour) If I got to timed dry, set it to 80 minutes, it will run for 10 minutes and stop on 70 minutes. I manually advance the timer a little, and it will run for another 10 minutes.

If you have your original timer, I would compare the gear train the timer motor connects to. You will find your gear train on the new timer is the wrong one. I would just swap the old one to the new timer!!
