Hello,

I got a thermostat for 20 quid which I thought was a bargain. Have taken the back cover off and found all the parts but when I try and connect it the wires seem to be very slightly too short and I'm not 100% positive where the earth goes.

A friend took the bit off a few weeks back to see if he could get the same part !!!! so I didn't see how it was originally.

where did you get the manual??

hope you can help

cheers

Wont heat up


Most dryers fail to heat for the following reasons, in order of commonality:
1) Most common, heating element has failed, needs replacement.
2) A fuse or thermostat inside the machine has failed, needs replacement.
3) A wire has burned in two or broken, needs repair.
4) A fuse or circuit breaker in the house or apartment main fuse box has "popped", needs replacement.
Be blessed.

Tip

Dryer Running, Will not heat


The Most common problem is a bad thermal fuse.

1 the thermal fuses are located in the cabinet of the dryer under the drum
they can also be located on the front of the blower wheel housing. on the back wall of the dryer or along the heating element can.
2. some kenmore, whirlpool machines have these fuses located in the rear of the machine.especially when the lint filter is located in the top of the dryer.
3. the heating element can also be bad.
4. if you have an ohm meter you can check the continuity of the thermal fuses,as well as the heating element.if there is no continuity on any of the above mentioned parts. Replace the faulty parts.

It could be: the knob/control panel, one or more fuses, or the heating element.
When this happened to me it was the heating element on my electric dryer. The heating element stopped working because the air flow was blocked, causing the heating element to work too hard and develop a break. The air flow was blocked because you're supposed to take the dryer out every 6 months and clean the lint out of the vent behind the machine. No where in any owners manual does it really explain this. For my machine, the heating element was about 50 bucks and it was easy to fix it myself, but don't order a new heating element unless you know that's what it is. It could also be a problem with the knob, one of the fuses, etc. The heating element is the most expensive problem. The fuses are cheaper. If you have a multimeter you can check the resistance, but the place where I buy my appliance parts will check them for free. You might try calling around to see if a place near you will do that for you.

Electric dryer doesn't heat.


Probably a bad heating element. There are a few different styles, you'll just need to lookup your model number on an appliance parts website, find the right part, and then do a quick search on replacement. There are probably ten or fifteen websites that have instructions to replace heating elements.

Here's one where you can buy the part, the element is part number 17.

Heating element does not heat imoved to a new house and the dryer just quit heating


Will to take it apart to get to the heating element, thermostats, and fuses. If are not familiar in taking it apart go to this websit www.partselect.com type in you model number and it shows diagrams on it. You can try to follow the diagrams it shows and try to take it apart and checking out your heating element, thermostat and fuses. I would start by Ohming this things out first with a multi meter on your ohm setting once you get to it. If they check out ok, then further troubleshooting will be needed.. Remember good fuses will read 0.0 ohms bad fused will read "OL" . You heating element should read i believe about 9-10 ohms i think. hopefully this helps

Frigidaire FEQ332ESO electric dryer: No Heat


If im looking at my papers right, this unit is a stacker, correct? The element is directly behind the drum on Frigidaire units. You can I believe remove the top, then remove the front cover by removing two screws on the inside the hold it to the cabinet. I believe the element and thermal fuse should be able to be tested from the top. After you remove the top, the wiring should be on the right rear side. The thermal fuse is round, and has two wires going to it. It can be located on the element housing itself, or on the rear bulkhead. To test this fuse, you will need a meter that reads continuity (ohms). Just attach the leads and see if you get a reading (be sure to remove one of the wires). The element wiring should also be in the element housing. You will see the wires coming off the top (all by themselves, not attached to a thermostat). Testing will be the same way. If you have to replace the element you will need some help more than likely. The drums in Frigidaires pop out. You will have to remove the belt, then (with towels wrapped around your hands to keep all your skin) lift the rear of the drum up to pop it out of the bearing holder (like a ball joint). Then you just unscrew the element, and replace. Its not uncommon anymore for anything to break on these new units, in fact, 90% of my business is in warranty call, usually within 3 months of purchase. Sorry, but would rather be truthful than blow smoke. Good luck, and let me know if there is any other questions you may have.
