Question about Dryers
huuum At your service!
You told me that your dryer smells as if something is burning after running only a minute or 2, and the damp clothes are "smoking" NOT steaming. Vent duct is clean as is lint trap
I find two answers are possibilities for this situation.
1.If it is an electric dryer one of the connecting wires to the element is lose or not snug, and the electricity is arcing across the gape, so you smell a tiny bit of burn.
2. Or the thermostat is malfunctioning and you need hands on service to diagnose and change this part.
DO NOT RUN THE DRYER!
It is a fire hazard!
Sounds like a Thermostat problem to me!!
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
And can pay for them selves in only a few years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!
You will be fine
Bless You huuum
