Sounds like you have weak coils. I have had this many times in the past and changing the coils has always seemed to work....they work fine when they are cool, but once they heat up they stop working.

Dryer has quit heating

Sounds like the heat coil has went bad you can pick one up at a appliance store,but the cost would be close to buying a used dryer,also check and see if something has gotten on the coil and shorted it out I had a dyer one time that I found a little dead snake on it,I removed it and it work for many years good luck....

The flame sensor is fine because it is powering up the ignitor. The dryer does heat a little. It can be only one thing: The solenoids are aged and weak. They work at first then the heat up and quit.

when its quiet its the electic heat thats being used when its loud its the heating pump and the heating pump is what saves you energy and they can be a little loud when its on its normal. I work on these units at a hotel

The heater lights and burns a blue flame but no heat or very little comes out the front

Well these simple heaters are good but can be quite annoying. This sounds as though you have lost the fan motor. You should hear a roar after ignition and being that all you have is a blue flame and little to no heat this tells me you lost the fan motor.

5 year old whirpool gas dryer heat shuts off after running for 10-15 min. Changed the thermal fuse.

Well you know you have heat for a little while so this must be something that quits when it heats up but runs when it cools back down. The ignitor is working and the flame sensor. The only other thing in that same circuit is those operator coils.e48860d.jpg They will quit when hot. They cool off and work some more. Replace those guys and your troubles will be ova.fec351c.jpg

I have a 2.0 turbo diesel passat - just 3 yrs old. First diesel I have had. Its quite rattley especially at tickover and takes maybe 2 minutes to quieten down. Is this characteristic?

It is normal for a diesel to be a little noiesy untill it gets a little heat in the engine. The noise is a fuel knock,due to lack of heat in the cylinder. Let me know if this was helpful

Sharp Carousel II convection microwave oven stopped working

the circuitry has gone bad, the piece of meat may have caused it to work a little harder than normal and was probably close to quitting and heating the meat just made it finally quit

Does not heat

No heat any mode? Drum turns, timer runs? Probably a bad heater coil, or two bad ones. Did it dry real good at first (years ago) then get a little slower but still worked and finally quit heating altogether?
