Question about Dryers

Dryer starts then shuts off

Dryer starts then after a minute or two it shuts off and will not restart for a few minutes like it is over heating. The thermal fuse is good and there is no vent line blockage.

It seem like your motor could be faulty (overheating) causing the thermal overload to open, stopping the motor after awhile it will cool down and the thermal will reset, if this the case the bearings or the windings could be faulty

What causes my dryer to stop after 20 minutes?


Sounds like a possible motor over heating. The main motor has a heat safety built in that shuts it off if it gets too hot. It will restart once it cools off some. Over heating could be from excessive lint around the motor or even from a blocked vent pipe. All you can do is clean it well and check again. If it still shuts off the motor will need replaced.

Ignites on start up ,but after initial heat cycle will not ignite again until I shut down for a few minutes then restart.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

based from your story, you are tiggering a thermal overheat protection device. as the device heats up, it would trip off the dryer, and comes back on again after a few minutes but as the heat increases, the device is being triggered faster until the device would no longer trips back because the dyer is so hot that it would take about 10 mins to cool down. i think this is just a secondary problem, your primary problem could be lack of air passing through the heating element. please check the stroller blade for dirt of flint and debri, check also the outlet duct, it could be clogged with flint also. i hope i was able to solve your problem.
