    Beaumark Dryer buzzs but then doesn't start
    My old beaumark dryer started showing these sign months ago.
    When I would turn the start dial, it would buzz (as I would hold it in the turned position) but
    Then nothing, it wouldn't start... after trying 3 or 4 (same buzz going on) times it would then start... sometimes it wouldn't and then if I went back a hour or so later, it would eventually start. Now months later, it just buzzs and doesn't start at all. After a few buzzs, it goes silent and won't even buzz unless you leave it for a while.

    Is there some kind of internal fuse that is blown? Is it some I can fix. If not, is it worth getting someone in (How Much?) or should I get a new Machine. Thanks

    More than likley the capacitor has gone bad. You can get replacements cheap from appliance repair shops or from eBay or and online part store. If your not famillar with working on electrical appliances then DON'T. ELECTRICITY CAN KILL!! Get somebody that knows how to fix it.
