I would say the heat senser is not oicking up the right temp. you should have a tec. check it out and not run it until they look at it a dryer can catch fire quickly. please be safe.........

I have a frigidaire front load dryer that has the round frond door and control panel on the top frontof the cabinet. how do i open the case and replace the blower fan blades?

If the top LOOKS like it can open or come off, look all around for any screws that may hold it in place. Then, using a thin, flat, flexible putty knife find the catch release tabs, usually in front, one on each side about 3-4 inches in from right and left front corner. Press these in while applying some upward pressure, use a wooden paint stirrer to apply opening pressure without scratching the paint! If this does not work, DO NOT resort to the Milwaukee Sawzall with a metal blade! The metal shavings will get stuck in your clothing and be very uncomfortable. Good luck!

I have checked and cleaned the vent hose and screen. However the back of the dryer gets very hot. Also the top gets to hot to even place your hand on it Frigidare GLER341As2

There is a safety thermo switch that is located on the top rear by the controls, it may be going bad, as if the coils get to hot it is suppose to shut the dryer down.

How do I get the back panel off, so that I can get to the fuses? The screws have been removed. It appears the back panel is either glued,welded or painted shut! My dryer is spining but there is no heat?

Put all the screws back in the dryer where they go. The heater has probably dropped down and will be fun to resecure but it must be done. All service to your dryer is done through the front and you don't have to move dryer from wall at all. Use a flat bade scre driver or putty knife on the front left and right sides at top and the top pops up and there are the t-stats and all.

Frigidaire electric dryer; model # FDEB34RGS1- gets TOO hot!

I could not find the model number you listed. I also would be very concerned about over heating until we can find and locate the problem. Look inside the door and compare number with the on listed here at Fixya. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Very hot to touch on top

Sounds like you have a clogged vent hose or clogged duct work leading to the outside of the home. Make sure you have no obstructions in the exhaust system including a functioning flap on the outside wall cap.
