SOURCE: how to access heating element and thermostat on Admiral ade7000ayw dryer

The top has a hinge bracket in the back. pop the front up with a flat screw driver. you should see the heating element there and be able to access it from that point.

SOURCE: Amana electric dryer model LEA30Aw will not heat

The heating element measures 10 Ohms at 68 degrees farenheit. Usually if the element is bad, it will measure infinity.

SOURCE: Dryer running but not heating. How do I check heating element?

Check the following to address this non heating issue



1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 110.96585200 No heat!

You probably have a bad thermal cut-off . This is the small thermostat , located at the top of the element housing . This " thermostat " should read infinate resistance ( no resistance ) . You can put the 2 wires togather , and see if heat comes on . pt # 3399848 . Both thermostats , should read 0 resistance . They are normally closed . The thermal cut-off , will not reset itself , if open . This is a safety t-stat , for when dryer gets too hot , and will have to be replaced .

Heater, 230V./2000W.-d.32mm.
The heating element, which is encased inside a tube, is used to heat the washing water. The heating element is not activated during the drying phase. Inserted into the delivery side of the washing pump and coupled with the duct which directs water to the upper spray arm.
Built-in safety devices: Two thermostats
First thermostat: auto-reset bi-metal thermostat calibrated to 98°C and connected in series to one branch of the heating element.
Second thermostat: manual-reset fuse calibrated to 206°C and connected in series to the second branch of the heating element. If this fuse intervenes, the heating element is disconnected definitively.

RADIATOR FAN NOT KICKING IN


You do not need a thermostat for the fan to work but you will need a thermostat for the engine not to over heat. Put simply the thermostat controls the flow of water through the radiator cores so that the heat in the water has a chance to transfer to the cores and fins and away.. NO thermostat =too fast water flow = hot engine.. Fans work off a temperature sensor which tells the CPU when to activate the relay to switch on the fan. Check out the circuit for the fan including the sensor ,fuses, relays and wiring, and fan . Fix it properly so that you can enjoy driving

My Bush dryer is not heating up


The dryer Thermostat may have blown.
There are a couple of them:
The high limit thermostat is a safety device mounted on the heating chamber and is designed to prevent the dryer from overheating when the exhaust vent is restricted. A restricted vent will cause the high limit thermostat to trip or activate, interrupting the circuit to the heating element or gas valve. The high limit thermostat is not designed to activate repeatedly like a cycling thermostat and will eventually fail causing a no heat symptom. Disconnect the power to the dryer and check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. If there is no continuity then it will need to be replaced and the restricted vent system corrected as well.
OR:
Cycling thermostats control the temperature inside the dryer drum. They are designed to "cycle" the heating element on and off to maintain the correct amount of heat. Cycling thermostats are normally located on the blower housing or elsewhere in the internal airflow ducting. Over time, the cycling thermostat can become defective. Disconnect the power to the dryer and check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter.

IT MAY ALSO BE THE TEMPERATURE SENSOR.
Temperature sensors are devices that change resistance depending on the temperature. The internal temperature of gas and electric dryers is managed by cycling thermostats on most dryers and by temperature sensors on some electronic controlled dryers. Depending on the dryer it may use multiple sensors to regulate the temperature. You can use a multi-meter to check the resistance of the temperature sensor. You will need to know what that resistance is at room temperature to verify if it is defective. This test should only be done when the power has been disconnected.
IF I HAD TO GUESS, I would bet it's one of the thermostats and I would start with checking these first.
Be aware that it could be many things that cause a dryer to not heat up such as the sensors named above or the timer could be faulty or the heating element itself is bad if it is an electric dryer, or if it's a gas model the ignitor or glow bar may be bad. But again I would start with checking the "fuses / thermostats" first.

Replaced bottom element and both thermosats. the reset button tripped what would cause this to happen


Reset trips when upper thermostat senses high heat event over 150 degrees F.

High heat can be caused by:

1) Element shorted to ground through center of element. Thermostats turn off one leg of 240V circuit. Elements always have 120V available. If element is shorted to ground, it might not trip breaker, and continues to heat using one leg of 240 with circuit completed to ground wire.
Test elements:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-EH40-hot-water-heater-timer.html#120-240

2) Insulation and cover not put back over thermostat. Thermostat exposed to cool air, misreads temperature causing element to continue heating.

3) Thermostat sticking in ON position. I usually replace both thermostats at same time to save another trip.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

4) Shorted wire or loose wire at or near upper thermostat. Check that screws are very tight against copper wire.

5) One suspect can be eliminated is 240Volt power to heater.
Your heater circuit is good.

We have an he front load dryer, and all of a sudden there is no heat when turned on. what should i check or look for


First (if it is 220 volt heating) check the breaker. some breakers for 220 V has two toggle switches.
one switch could be on and the machine would run, but no heat. reset both switches and try again.
It could be the heating element or a thermosat. and not very likely it could be the timer.
With a gas dryer. check thermostat, burner coils, heat senor, and ignitor.
hope it helps

Frigidaire FEQ332ES tumbles but does not heat up. Replaced the thermostat, did not solve the problem.


check ur breaker see if something is tripped dryer willl run on 120 but needs 240 to heat..

check ur element and also a thermal fuse, there might also be another thermosat that could be bad.

if gas check the ignitor, fuse, and thermostats

Central heat does not blow hot air, just warm air weakly


Sounds like some of the elements are not working. You being in Florida they may not have put very many elements in. It was 61 degrees last week. I know because I'm a Dolphin Fan. You will need a current sensing meter to check the elements.

Dryer runs hot on low heat setting


What kind of dryer do you have? Some dryers use a bimetal or snap-disc thermostat with a heating element under it to control temperature. the heating element is used for the low heat setting to make it turn off early since it will sense a temperature higher that what is actually there. If the heating element is bad then the thermosat will only operate at the high temperature. You should look at replacing that element.

Main oven of cooker is on, fan is working, but not heating up. The top oven/grill is working.


Most likely a bad,open, heating element. Turn off power at breaker, remove element ohm with ohmmeter if good. its the thermostat or control. However, some units have resettable thermosats
