There are two thermal fuses, but if the fuse has gone - there will be another fault Replacing them without sorting the fault will only lead to them going again.

Fuses will blow if -

  1. The fan motor stops working
  2. The vents are blocked
  3. The heating element overheats
  4. There is an electrical fault
These need checking first.

The fuses are usually clipped into a metal frame over the heater coil - which is on the top of the drum.
Disconnect the machine and remove the top cover to see them.
Look for a picture of replacements online so you know what to look for.

Frigidaire Electrolux aeq6000es1 heats but sometimes doesn't heat when drying clothes why is this happening

Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer heats and will occasionally not heat when drying the cloths. This could be a possible issue with your thermostat or control board. I would recommend performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to have a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help your avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

How do replace heating element in dryer

Things You'll Need:

* Volt meter
* Clean cloths
* Waste bin
* Replacement fuse (optional)

1. Secure the power cord in the Frigidaire dryer as well as the power outlet if the dryer does not start. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker if necessary.
2. Check the fuse if there is power but no heat, as dryers need two fuses in order to operate properly. Replace the fuse if necessary. Select heated cycles if items are wet and cold after drying.
3. Open the dryer door and slide out the lint screen if the dryer seems to be taking a long time to operate. Clean off the lint and return the lint screen to the unit. Use a volt meter to check the power outlet for proper electricity, which should be 240 volts or more. Clean the exhaust hood outside the home and straighten the exhaust vent if bent.
4. Keep the load size medium and distribute pieces evenly inside the drum if items are wrinkled or damp. Increase drying time or temperature as necessary.
5. Check pockets for hard objects before putting pieces in the dryer, as items can create scratches or chips inside the drum and cause a clinking noise during use.
6. Contact Frigidaire for assistance if the problem continues.

My gas fridgedaire dryer is working but not drying the clothes

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

My dryer is making too much noise and it's not even drying up clothes.


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things—
Electric Dryer---
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.

Hope this helps...

My dryer does not heat so it does not dry my clothes

Hi there,

Well first of all you can check out power from the house - check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. After then you can check the heating element - Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it, note: electric heating elements are not repairable. Further you can check the thermal fuse - 
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse which is about an inch long, is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. 

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

My Frigidaire dryer has an error code of AD and is taking forever to dry our cloths. Please help.?


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code AD means air/auto dry. This type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break disengaging the heating element, there for the dryer has a busted heating element, you’ll need to replace it then it should be good to go. Normally runs parts and labor about 150. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

IT WILL NOT HEAT. how do i remove the heating element to replace

Is it gas or electric? It could have a bad timer, heating element, power problem, circuit breaker could have tripped, or blown fuse or burnt wires inside dryer. I believe the top pops off from inserting a screw driver between the top and front dryer frame and pushing in 2 clamps located near each side. Then the front unscrews from the inside. Or a bottom panel might come off same way underneath the door.

On autodry clothes do not fully dry

Try it with the exhaust pipe disconnected for a load, if that makes a difference, you need to have your vent pipe cleaned. Check in your exhaust pipe in the machine, too.

Frigidaire AEQ8000 dryer doesn't completely dry clothes

1. Gas valve coilsIgniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. 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.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
