Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

Open Question

I have a Fisher and Paykel dryer, model DEGX1, fuse keeps blowing and we lose heat. We can reset it and it will have heat for a bit, then blow again. Fan in back is clear and blowing, any ideas what would be causing this?

Yes, get a new element. The reason it's on all the time is because the element coils have broken and one of the coils is touching the canister that encloses it. This creates a direct short to ground. By the way, the element has 120 volts to it all the time. It will only HEAT when 240 is applied through the centrifugal switch of the motor. Your 120 volts is shorting to ground... not enough amps to trip the circuit breaker, but enough to glow the element.

Restricted venting is the most likely cause, they did change the thermostats a couple years ago. the small t-stats should look cut out on the metal side they should not be solid, also check to make sure the elements are not shorted to ground.

SOURCE: Won't heat

Not sure how old your dryer is but earlier models had the element around the door.
As a rookie you would have to remove the rear cover, the drum, the belt around the drum and then you would sse the element held in place by clips on the inside of the front panel. The thermostat would placed not too far away. I have just purchase a new dryer (very recent model) and was told the element is located away from the door. I guess I won't know until I have a problem with mine.

As usual, heed the warnings about electrical appliances and the risk of electrical shock.
Always unplug the appliance from the power point as you can still get a stock on the neutral connection even if the swith on the power point is turned off. (tunrs of the active connection only).

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel DEGX2 Dryer. Need heating element changed?

I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

Where is the reset button for the dryer. It is blowing cool air only.


Hello

When the dryer blows only cool air, the first think that you should check is the thermostat/thermal fuse which is located inside the rear panel on the blower wheel housing. When this thermal fuse goes bad you cannot reset it and replacing this is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
