SOURCE: Will not heat, it only blow cold air, how do I change the heating element inside the unit

If the drum turns, it could be as simple as a blown fuse or breaker. The dryer has doule breaker or fuses at fuse panel. If the one blows, the heater will not work but motor willturn as motor rums on 110volts. It may be cut out thermostat or could be element, but check the power to the plug of dryer out let and make sure you getting 110 volts on from neutral to both sides and 220 between two live lines.

SOURCE: I think that the heating

Open door. Remove phillips head screws at 5 and 7 O'Clock positions. Close door. Use putty knife to push in clips (2) relaeasing top. (located in seam where top meets front panel) Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at top of front panel. Unplug light and door switch. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom tabs. Unplug moisture sensor wire near bottom. Set front panel to the side. Look at the small thermostats on the left side of the burner cone. The one toward the front side is a manually resettable one (on gas models), reset by pushing in the little plunger in the center of the thermo. If this was tripped, it means your vent is not adequate.

Testimonial: "The info was helpful, but I still can not remove the front control panel. Are the two clips on the bottom of the control panel or the top?"

My Hoover vhv680c tumble dryer is working but does not get hot I have changed the element but still no good


There are other possibilities. Dryers have one or more temperature sensors that will open circuit the heater element if they get too hot. If the sensor goes bad you get no heat. These are usually located near the end of the heater element. Find the wiring diagram and you will see them. With the dryer unplugged you should be able to measure almost no resistance across their terminals. Another possibillity is in the timer. The contacts inside of it could be bad. This is likely if you get heat on some cycles and not others.

Sounds like an overheat sensor is tripping. Remove the exhaust duct from the dryer and see if it stays heating. If it does you have a clogged vent.

If it still acts up you have an internal blockage or a weak sensor and the dryer will have to be taken apart to service it.

HOOVER AUTO DRY 5050ED KEEPS STOPPING


hi there, I have repaired many of these dryers. It will be a faulty heater element, most likely. They cost about $40. If you get a tradesman to fit it, they will prob charge you about $200 all up. Maybe its better to buy a new dryer for around $300? Good luck.

Dryer blowing cold


Check the following to address this issue.


Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.


Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Hoover HDV6UK keeps tripping circuit breaker


There are only 2 things that it could be both are heat related:
THe thermostat and thermal limiter OR the heating element. We can not rule out the motor though. Then you can get into the control boards. Maybe it is time.
