kemnore 80 electric dryer: dryer spins, light works, heat does not work...used multitester on ohm setting to test for continuity on coil and thermal fuse...both seemed to be fine...back to square zero


Hello,

In addation to testing the element and thermalfuse what ya need to check is both of the thermostats that are on left side of teh housing where the heat element fits into,both of those should have zero ohms resistiance,also should check the cycling t-stat there where the thermal fuse (in the blower housing) be sure to not confuse the thermal fuse which is the blower housing with the thermal cutoff which is on the heater housing that and the high limit t-stat are the ones in the heater housing and are the most likely things making the dryer not heat.

If all above checks to be good, the timer, or the motor is whats wrong causing it to not heat.

electric dryer spins no heat, replaced heater element and high limit thermostat, tested thermal fuse and it does have 0 ohms, thermistor reads ~50 ohms.


in addation to checking the high limit t-stat have you checked the thermal cut off (the small t-stat) on the heater housing where the element fits into, the high limit t-stat and the thermal cut off BOTH shoud have 0 ohms (the thermal fuse is in the blower housing) the cut off is on the heater box, if you have checked those to be good, check that the heat relay on the control board is closing and sending power to the element, if not replace the control, if all above are good then the motor switch is bad and not sending power to the element(thats a built in safety feature so the dry would never heat when the motor isnt running)the element of course heats only when 240 volts ac is to the element ,120vac from the relay on control through the high limit t-stat then through the thermal cut off finally to the element and 120vac from the motor switch for a comined 240 vac

roper dryer, no heat, continuity at all stats fuse and heat element, 240 v at receptical and power cord mounting block PLEASE HELP!!!!


Pull your timer and make sure you wright down where all the wires go.... Shake the timer and if you here any thing moving around its bad !! if not reinsall.

Next step would be to check the motor cintrifical switch.

This is all assuming you have check all the thermal switches on the heater and the heater and the white thermal fuse with the 2 wires. on the back left of the machine

thermal fuse location


the thermal is on the heater box on the right side it has two white wires going to it
you need to remove the high limit stat and bracket and the heating element to get to the safety stat
