Question about Dryers
Looking for some help. I recently replaced my heating element in my dryer and worked....worked well for ohhh about 10min. Now my dryer wont even start. Nothing. Air Fluff/ Perm Press/ Timed...NOTHING! Any suggestions?
Did you verify that your ventilation was cleaned and free of obstructions before replacing the heating element? Leaving a dryer in a condition where it has poor air flow can cause the dryer to overheat and cause failure of additional components. Most commonly, this problem is caused by a blown THERMAL FUSE (in some models this is called a THERMISTER), which is generally located on the air blower housing inside the dryer.
What is the MAKE and MODEL number of your dryer? Is your heating element in the back of the dryer, or accessed through the front under the drum? The following link can give you some more information and a starting point to troubleshoot:
Read through the link thoroughly and PLEASE let me know if you have questions. I hope this helps you.
