Bypassing the buzzing mechanism

I read your post earlier tonight. How exactly did you go about bypassing the buzzing mechanism on the Presto heat dish? Currently I have mine taken apart and am REALLY wondering which part controls this! Any solutions? My heater starts buzzing after it's on for only 10 or 15 minutes. Thanks!

    I read the posted solution for this problem as well. But I don't have any white wires, just three black and one red. At least two seem to be connected to the buzzer. Can I just cut the wires? The thing buzzes for absolutely no reason, and scares me half to death!

Dryers tumbles but there is no heat

The problem is obviously in the heating circuit which is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components.

Disconnect power then access the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat. Disconnect the wires of each component then connect them together and insulate it properly. Reconnect power then start the dryer. The problem is indeed in the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. Replace both parts and it should solve the problem. It is an easy and cheap repair to make. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Dryers with lint filter on the front.

Dryers with lint filter on the top.

Also bypass the cycling thermostat if the dryer still doesn't heat with the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat bypassed. Check the heating element visually for obvious broken or damaged coil. An ohmmeter will be of great help in checking the resistance/continuity of the heating element. Replace the heating element if broken or damaged, NEVER attempt to repair it.

The problem is likely in the motor centrifugal switch if the dryer still doesn't heat with good heating element and the three components above bypassed. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

My heater is not working on my Supra. Its a 1989 model. I have changed the thermostat but that has not solved the problem

It is most likely the vsv under the hood by the passenger side firewall. Mine would only blow cold air. As soon as I bypassed the electronic vsv vacuum hoses the vacuum switch opened hot water from the radiator into the heater core and presto I now have heat. I found a vsv at a junk yard today and will replace next weekend but for now at least I have heat. Basically the vsv is what tell the vacuum switch how much to open and close to fluctuate the hot water running through the heater core. By bypassing it I cannot adjust the temp. inside the cabin except through hitting a lower blower button. I hope this helps.
