My Blomberg 1330A stopped heating. Heating element seems fine, so now looking for the thermal switch...


Test the heating element with a meter for continuity with a meter.
After that follow the wires, one thermal fuse should be neer the heater element the other near the exhuast.

Igniter not heating up.


By igniter do you mean heater element? If the heater element is not turning on it is probably the thermal fuse. It is the round disc looking device that usually has two screws holding it on, in the back of the dryer.

Where is the heating element located on the kenmore plus pdryer. I purchased it in 1982


Hello,
on that vintage dryer the heat element was behind the rear panel. When looking at it from the rear with the back panel off it is inside of the housing on the right side. The way to remove it is to raise the main dryer top by removing the 2 phillips headed screws on the top where the lint filter fits and pop up and raise the top and from the front you can look behind the back wall the holds the drum up, from the front on the top of the housing the element fits(left side when looking at it from the front) will be a bracket that holds that heater housing to that rear drum support plate. Remove that screw(5/16th inch hexhead) and go to the back and pull housing out from top of housing then lift off from bottom.When reinstalling be sure the housing fits into bracket and the bottom of where it goes. To remove the element there will be one 5/16th inch hex headed screw at the bottom by where its opened. The part # for that style heat element is 4391960 it is available from your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com

apdepot.com

Thanks for bring me back to the old days i started my appliance repair career a year before you bought that dryer (1981)

I hope this has helped you with your dryer,

Dryer drum works but does not heat. Everything else works. I have checked the fuse and I have made sure it is not on air dry.


THERMAL FUSES MAY BE THE CAUSE OF THIS In recent years the makers of dryers are using thermal fuses to let you know something is wrong with your dryer. They are generally non resetting and have to be replaced. The thermal fuses are located on the heater element housing and should read continuity if read with an ohm meter. Most blown thermal fuses are the result of vent/air flow problems or a grounded heating element. Follow the diagram below to see how to check the continuity of the switch, and look closely at the switch to see a fairly close idea of what you are looking for, ok

OR it could be a thermostat.
Cycle and safety thermostats-read them with an ohm meter. Should show continuity .

or lastly, it might be
the Heat elements-Test heater element with an ohm meter. You will read continuity across a good element ( 8-12 ohms is an average element ).

IF you do not have an OHM-METER, then you can check these issues by following the directions below:

To check the thermal fuse - You can bypass the thermal fuse (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.

To check the thermal cut-out - You can bypass the thermal cut-out (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.


To check the thermostats for continuity - - You can bypass the thermostat (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.

To check the Element: Try removing element and physically looking at the element wire for a break in the wire.

Kenmore dryer will not heat


Remove 1/4" screws from bottom flange of the lower panel, the panel should come off by pulling in a downward motion. The heating element is located on the right hand side, in the heat box. The element is held in place by one 1/4" screw on the left side. You have to pull pretty hard to get the element out. When looking at the heater assembly, you'll notice access is blocked by a metal shield, I typically just bend it down and out of the way, it flexes back into place just fine.

I just bought a new heating element for a 70 series dryer and it is still not getting hot. What is another possible solution


test the hot side of the heater element, also check that the circuit breaker has been turned all the way off then all the way back on. If this does not fix it or you have tried it let me know and I can tell you what to check next.

Electric dryer not heating...works fine, but no heat


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse and or heater element, both very simple and affordable to replace. Try replacing the thermal fuse first to see if that's the problem. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. If this don't solve your problem you will need to replace the heater element. To replace the heater element, with the back cover off of your dryer just look down and to the right of were the air blows out. You will see the electric heating unit with two fat red wires plugged into it. Unplug these wires and you will see on the sheetmetal housing two screws that hold it on, one on each side. On older elctric dryers there is only one screw that holds element in place, it is on the bottom center of element screwed in from behind. Remove screw(s) and remove old heater element. Now, lay the new element next to the old one and take notice that there is a heat sensor attached to the old element where one of the red wires unplugged from. Gently remove this sensor and install it onto the new element in the same location as the old one. If you have an older electric dryer, the old heater element doesn't have the heat sensor on it, just skip this step. Now, plug in your two red wires and re-install your heater element. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Maytag dryer: pye2300ayw


yes, it will. you should be able to take off the panel on the bottom of the front of the dryer. way in the back is the heating element. do not put your hands in there with the power on, but start the dryer and look in there and you will see if the heating element comes on. it will be like looking inside your toaster.
