When you say that it will run, is the heater element getting hot and is the blower on or off? Those are two distinct and seperate issues that I will need to know in order to assist you...Please get back to me with that information...

    Then your heating element is not being powered. It may be your high temp sensors of thermal fuse ..will check circuitry when I can and clarify for you later... Hang in there. we'll get you going..

Amana ptac during heat mode will blow hot air , then blow cold , but will cycle back to heat eventually is this Normal?


if the fan switch is in the Run position and not the auto position you are getting cool are when the heat element is not on. this is kind of like a way to circulate the air. look for an auto setting it then should only come on when needed. Keep in mind it is normal for the fan to start blowing before the heating element is warmed up, this prevents it from over heating, or coming on when the fan is not working

Vulcan ducted heating


Do a continuity test on the heating elements, and if they're good then do the same on the sequencers or contactors, whichever you have. The sequencers (or if you have contactors turn on the heating elements). All the fan does is blow air. It blows against the heating element to put out hot air. Either your sequencers/contactor or your heating element is defective.Wait,each sequencers is connected to a fuse.Check the sequencer fuse too. Find the sequencer/contactor wherever the wire feeding the heating element is coming from.

Dishwasher not heating water already replaced in line heater element no change


Hello

Possible causes;

Incoming Water; Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat;The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.

Heating Element/Drying Fan; The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon

My heil heat pump is not blowing warm or hot air


Assuming that the fan is okey, there's only one item to be checked, and that is the HEATING ELEMENT.
This answer is based from your comment that it is not blowing warm or hot air. So, I conclude that it is blowing air but neither hot or warm, only ambient air. So, unplug it, and check the heating element. It may need to be replaced to make it work. May this will
help you.

Central heat does not blow hot air, just warm air weakly


Sounds like some of the elements are not working. You being in Florida they may not have put very many elements in. It was 61 degrees last week. I know because I'm a Dolphin Fan. You will need a current sensing meter to check the elements.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck
