Electric Furnace stopped running

You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

Dryer runs but does not heat.


Check the thermal fuse. The fuse can be tested reading impedance.You can replace the fuse straight away, or you can first test it using a multimeter set on Ohms. If the multimeter reads Ohms infinity when you touch the fuse contacts with the probes, then the fuse is gone. A good fuse will read zero or low impedance.

If the fuse is OK, then you can have a defective thermostat.
In the same way you test the thermostats, thermistors or cutoff located in the heating group, near to fan and element. If they are OK, then they will be conductive at room temperature and will read zero Ohms. If they are bad they read open (infinity). You need to disconnect the part's contact to test properly.

The rest depends if the dryer is electric or gas.

On electric dryers you test the heating element. The heating element is tested in the same way. Set multimeter on impedance, disconnect element, and touch contacts with multimeter probes. If it reads open, then element is gone. A good element reading depends on the specific model. Most washer-dryers, including Whirlpool and Maytag read between 10 and 20 Ohms.

With gas appliances you need to test the ignitor, then coils and then the flame sensor. The ignitor is the most common cause for the problem. Heating coils problems are also common. The flame sensor does not fail very often.

I have a GE DWSR405EBWW Electric dryer. It stays hot after completeing cycle (coils still energized). I opened the unit and coil doesn't look visually broken or grounded. 3 thermostats, 1 is a 4...

The way to check the element for being grounded is UNPLUG THE DRYER remove the wires to the element and check eact terminal individually to the heater housing if any ohms at all from each terminal to the heater housing the element is grounded.
As far as the t-stats 2 of them should have zero ohms and the one w/4 terminals the two larger outer ones should be zero ohms the two smaller inner ones will have somewhere between 100-1000 ohms what the smaller one is a heater inside of the t-stat so when set to delicate the t-stat heater heats the t-stat so it trips sooner on the low heat setting since it(t-stat) gets hot sooner

if you had heat in the dryer before you changed anything in the electrical box then i doubt very much it has anything to do with the dryer.if you have a meter you can check at the block where the cord connects to the dryer and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer before you start messing with the dryer

Our Roper dryer is aprroximately 5 years old. It had stopped warming the air inside the drum. The air still blows but it isn't warm.

Good day,
You didn't say whether it's gas or electric. In either case,the most common problem is the thermal fuse. You will need an ohm meter to check it for continuity. It should check out at zero ohms.
It is located behind the rear panel, near the center bottom.
It looks like this.


It is used on both the electric and and gas versions.
If electric, it could be the heating element. It sets in a cannister in the same area but to the right side. The 2 terminals on the bottom should be checked with an ohm meter as well. It should read less than 35 ohms.
Staying in the back, there are also other limit thermostats for both control and safety. Whether round or somewhat square, they all have 2 leads to them. They should all check zero ohms.
Here is a back view of the electric version, the gas model being somewhat similar.

If gas, and all components check O.K. in the back, then you will need to remove the front to access the gas valve components. There are 3 basic components. The gas valve, the ignitor placed to the front of of the gas valve. and the sensor, mounted on the left of the heat canister with 2 wires going to it.
The ignitor should read under 40 ohms, and the sensor zero ohms.
The gas valve has 2 black coils mounted to the top of the valve. They can be removed by removing the wire plugs and the bracket, but cannot be tested. They do fail frequently.
Here is a picture of the ignitor.

d20e3e0.jpg Also, here is a tutorial on removing the front panel. It doesn't have anything to do with the repair, but shows how to gain access to the heating components.

Those are the common items to test, and account for 99% of no heat complaints, but there are others, such as the heat selector switch, timer ect. but this is a good place to start.

Dryer runs...timer wont rotate and wont heat up

Good day,
Timer woun't run if there is n heat.
1. Check to see you are getting 230 volts to the machine. The motor uses only 115 so is not a good indication.
2. Remove back cover. You will need an ohm meter to test the components.
A. In the center bottom is a skinny white bakelite device held on with one screw. Remove one wire and check. It should check zero ohms. If not replace.
B. On the bottom right is a canister with the heating element terminals sticking out. They should test at 30 or less ohms. If not replace the heating element.
C. There are about 3 other limit thermostats in the area you're working. They should all check at zero ohms. Replace as needed.

Below is a tutorial on changing a heating element.

Kenmore Dryer -will spin but not heat and dry

The ohms reading on a heating element should never be zero. The resistance is what turns electricity into heat. You may have gotten a bad part. Check it again with NO power to the system. Unplug it or flip the breaker to be sure. You should definately get a reading on a good element. Good luck

Maytag Dyer model # MDE9700AYW wont heat it blows cold air

Ohm out the thermal fuse, if it is ok, then you can ohm out the heating element, be sure to visually check the element as well becqause it could just be shorted out internally giving you a reading, but first and foremost check your voltages be sure you are getting 240 across the outer plug spades and 120 volts from left to common and right to common, unplug this thing before you get into the element area or you could end up with a smokin fro !
