Heating element may be gone and they have a resistor called a microtemp which controls the heat and shuts it off

SOURCE: Door won't fully latch, light stays on, dryer won't function

There is typically a small plastic piece that catches the door and keeps it latched. The door has the male side and the frame of the dryer has the female side.

Either the male part on the door has broken off (or bent) or the the female part on the frame has broken. Replace this part and you'll be back in business. It is typically called a door latch and it comes with both the male and female parts.

Here is a picture
of a typical one.

SOURCE: Heating element stays on after door is opened

possibly something grounding the element to the housing. what brand of dryer do you have? GE/Hotpoint dryers are good at allowing things like underwires from a bra to get into the element area and ground out the element. or possibly the element has broken and the broken end has fallen against the housing. hope this helps

Our electric convection oven heats up and when you open the door and close again it no longer heats, fan stays on and the light goes on when door open and off when door is closed, any ideas?? Thanks


Hi, You can look at the micro switch on the oven door, sounds like it might have been installed on a normally open auxiliary rather than a normally closed aux. hope this helps

Door open warning light stays on


They are push button switches and the easiest thing to do is unscrew it and see if the light goes out or if the wire on the back has come off.

GE Spacesaver Microwave not heating, inside fan not working


I suggest you have the microwave oven replaced, the prices have dropped considerably for the last several years and you have got your money worth out of the unit.

I have a 1997 ford tauraus station wagon..It has 30,000 miles on it..Keep having problems with dome light staying on.The little red light stays on on the dash showing a door is ajar.Has been to dealer 3...


it sounds like a door switch is sticking, spray the dome light buttons at each door one at a time. and open and close the door a few times to see if one is sticking. if they are sticking then it should solve the problem. I suppose the dealer never mentioned this because they are out to rob everyone. you can use wd-40, electrical spray etc. spray switches good then open and close the doors. if this does not work, try to pull fuse. its worth a try!

Door open indicator stays on and lights stay on and car won't lock


One of the doors "thinks" it is open.That will make light stay on, power door locks will not operate and alarm will not arm itself. If the indicator shows which door is open, then check on the door frame for the door ajar pin / switch. Move it by hand repeatedly to see if it is stuck or misaligned. If unable, then pull the pin out to check the connection, and if still no help, then bridge (short) the cables to see if dome light goes out. If this is the case, then replace the pin.

GARAGE DOOR OPENER WORKS INTERMITTENLY


& to 10n years on a door opener is good. Did you set the pressure up high there are two dials on the back and they are numbered 1 2 3 to 10 set them to 8 or 9 and see if this solves your problem. What is happening is the sensors are tell your door its hitting something dose the light blink after it stops I need to know more. I would just buy a new one don't get this one fixed not worth it.

Door Ajar Warning Light Stays On


Our Ford Expedition & an Olds Silhouette Premier & both did the same thing. Someone online said to spray the inside door where the metal connects with the frame & sensors are there with WD-40. We did & it fixed the problem. Maybe this will work for yours.
