There are several items that can cause a dryer not to heat. Here's a list of the most common failed components: 1. Heating Element - take a resistance reading of the coil. Should read a low resistance somewhere around 10 ohms. 2. Thermal Fuse - Should read a short if good. Non-resettable and must be replaced if bad. Usually located near the blower housing. 3. Thermal Cut-Out - Should read a short if good. Non-resettable and must be replaced if bad. Usually located near the heating element. 4. High Limit Thermostat - Normally closed device. Designed to open at 167 degrees F. Protects the heating element. The thermostat will cycle (closed then open) during the drying cycle. This is normal. However, if the thermostat opens prematurely, or stays open, the unit will not heat. (NOTE: If the either the Thermal Cut-Out or Hi-Limit Thermostat are bad, replace them BOTH at the same time.) 5. Operating Thermostat - Usually located on the blower housing. Has four wires connected to it with a normally closed and normally open contact. The thermostat should cycle during while the dryer is running. If the thermostat does not function, it must be replaced. 6. Interconnecting wiring - A broken or loose wire is always a possibility. There's normally a wiring diagram located under the console that you can refer to to assist in tracing wires out. Make sure you unplug the dryer before attempting, however. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. I hope this helps you.

Just fixed a dryer not getting hot..it was the BREAKER IN THE HOUSE.

The dryer runs on two phases...120v plus 120v to make 240. One phase runs all the electronics and tumbler, the other runs the HEATING ELEMENT ONLY. I Measured the volts at the dryer outlet it measured 120. Flipped the breaker off and on and got 240, now the dryer gets hot.

First thing to check if your dryer is not getting hot (but is completely functional otherwise) is the volts at the outlet. Set your meter to ACV and measure your volts.

Blowing cold air


This model dryer has two heating elements, one for the top and one for the bottom, I suspect that the bottom element is burned out. If you want to attempt it yourself then I can send you a service manual that will walk you step by step through the whole dryer.

2004 camry ac light blinking and throws hot air. Suggestions?


My 2003 Toyota Camry AC often starts blowing hot air and the AC light starts blinking. I don't know why the following process works, but it does. Using the temp selector (left) reduce the temperature all the way down to Max Cold and then push the Auto button. It will start blowing out very cold air. After a little while push the temp selector to the desired temperature.

AC will blow cold air for a few minutes then start blowing hot air, cut the engine and start it again and blow cold air for a few minutes then start blowing hot air again. Just filled up the freon and the...


you have moisture in the system this causes your expancion valve to freeze up an stop working, thats why it works for sort time and when it de-freezes stars working again. you need to do a EVAC & RECHARGE with a good AC service equipment, specially attention to pull vacumm por at least 20minutes so you get all moisture out of the system.
Good luck

Conia CCD4501 cloths dryer not blowing hot air anymore


If you can turn it on and have the door open, hold the door switch in and see if you have a glow from the heating element. If not, your element is broken. That is if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check the pilot light or the thermo sensor.
