Issue: Dryer blower in mens room  
startsup only after multiple presses  
of button, or, strong slam of button
or two.

What is causing it to not start after  
one press every time?  There are  
no discussions of this issue with  
this blower on line, anywhere.

if none of the above then contact the manufacturers' help line!

If cheap knock-off, buy a better quality unit.

Burnt contacts in the switch, or loose and corroded wiring to it.

Failing armature, commutator or brushes in the motor.

Maybe other things. But that's where I'd look first.

Or just replace it with a paper towel dispenser.....
The towels work without drying your hands on your pants before using
that worthless hand dryer.....

Thanks Jouke, Clifford:

These machines are so  
ubiquitous you'd think  
there would be tons of  
threads about them, and  
service manuals online.

Looking at that image, it looks like a copy/clone/license of another  
brand called 'World Dryer'.

A youtube video shows a synchronous motor in the guts of the timer.

Could the motor be needing some lubrication to overcome starting inertia?
