Dryers are designed to run with clothes in them, running them empty could damage the appliance.

Could you add a bit more detail, maybe a photo of the brackets you're talking about?

comment What is the purpose of the “grounding” tab/wire on a 3-prong to 2-prong adapter?
@maple_shaft There may be continuity, but it's not designed to carry current, and is not an accepted grounding means.

@maple_shaft In a perfect world, but what about those 2 prong receptacles that are supplied by cable with no grounding means (which may be a large portion of 2 prong receptacles)? Also, if the receptacle is not a self grounding type (which it's not since it's 2 prong), the yoke is not an acceptable grounding means.

comment Why is my emergency generator hard to pull for starting?
Check the intake and exhaust for any restrictions. 2 stroke Engines are fairly simple, air/fuel mix in, exhaust out. Check for sticking valves, or blockages. Including the make and model number of the generator might be useful.

Does the TV turn off, or is it just a blank screen? You have the coaxial cable, a TV, two lamps, and a home theater system, all connected to the surge suppressor. Is that correct?
