Dyer not heating

I have checked the circut breaker and it's fine. I have looked at the heating element and I don't see a break in the wire. How do I trouble shoot the problem.

    What tools do I need to check the electrical equipment?

  • hankinsm1 Jan 30, 2009

    Ok, how do I test the parts with the volt-ohm meter?

  • hankinsm1 Jan 31, 2009

    While I was testing the continuity, I found that the heating coil was broken. Thank you for your help.

    A volt-ohm meter and hand tools to take things apart.

  • Mark Egan Jan 30, 2009

    OK, there should be a wiring diagram on the inside of the back panel, or inside the control head at the top of the dryer.

    Disconnect power before you do anything.

    You will be checking that there is a completed circuit through all the heaters and assorted switches. Main thing to keep in mind, the over temp switch will read closed (the dryer will not be hot enough to open it), and the thermostat will read closed (the dryer will not be hot enough to open it). If the ever temp sensor is open, then replace it.

    Disconnect one of the two wires on the elements. Check for resistance or continuity from the open terminal, to the other terminal. If you have note, then that's the problem. Look for other sensors within the assembly that may have failed if the elements look good.

    Follow the wiring diagram and let me know what you find. Your really checking continuity right now, and looking for broken wires, failed switches or sensors, etc.

DOESN'T HEAT


Could be bad heat element. Lift top of dyer, or look from back side with access panel removed, or look thru door if glass door while dryer is running on a heat cycle. You should be able to see red glow of heat element coming on. If not then you will need to open up dyer and remove drum. Inspect heat element for break in coil or coils touching each other or metal frame of dryer. You can also use an ohm meter and read the restence of the coil ...should be just a couple of ohms.
If it is a bad coil you should be able to replace fairly easy. If it is not coil than you will need to check themistor or cycle control switch. Hope this helps.

Brand new dryer wont heat


depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

I have a dryer that was working fine this morning..my husband and I were moving it around to level it up and now its not heating. I reset the circut breaker, and still no heat. What are my next steps? How...


Ar the back of the machine.. you need ro remove a panel. Make sure to unplug the unit.
Were you moving while it was on?
You see that Sometime the dryer is like a lightbulb. you flick it when lit, you can cause it to break the filiment.
That can happen to dryers too
If the back is exposed and you see the ends of the element, remove wires. If you have a Ohmmeter, check the resistance across the element. If it stays at one, broken element, if more than one. element is fine.
If element if fine, look for a circular device the size of a quarter,
Remove wires and test. Again 1 = bad ,1+ = Good
Replace themristat and/or element when you which one

Dryer stopped heating. Runs fine but no heat all of a sudden.


There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring 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. 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--electric heating elements aren't repairable. 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. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to

Maytag Dryer model number PYE2300AYW will not start.


check your fuses in the dryer their is only one fuse that could shut down the whole dryer like that. Open back panel and get a volt meter and check for continuity on the fuses. HOW? first un plug it then open back then you will see the heating element their are 2 fuses on the heating element take off wires and check those.Then if those are ok look down thier is another fuses its long white with 2 wires comming out of it with a black center that should be your problem check it repair it run it . GOOD LUCK

most dryers have a thermal switch or breaker in the cavity somewhere, they can become worn over time and will stop heating, the item probably looks like a copper arm that touches a contact similar to a old morse code key by looks

Candy cs455 m dishwasher tripping out power


if what you mean is that it trips the circut or fuse in your home then the circut that you have it pluged into is not sufficent to hold for the elctrical load that the dishwasher needs. you can do one of two things. change the circut that the dishwasher is on ( plug it into a circut that has nothing else on it or verfiy that the circut can handle a higher amperage .. if thats the case change the fuse / circut breaker to a higher amperage.

peace ... jk
