Re: Frigidaire Crown series (FDGB34RGS1) doesn't turn on
This is more than likely a thermal switch that has gone bad. You will find it located under the top of the dryer. You will need to remove the top and find it at or near the drum. You can bypass it to see if that is the problem. If it is, you can replace it for about 25 dollars. This usually is the problem. If not, let me know back and we can go further.

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, runs for about 10 minutes then turns off. I also see, that when it turns off, all the lights on the front panel are flashing. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
Hi laylabetes - Answering your
question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on
an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if
possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is
no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that
supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is
blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box
if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue

Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.
2 more things could be wrong,check the blower box to see if you have a thermister thermostat on it,check that with your omns meter,the other thing is the motor is no longer strong enough to turn the drum and it heat up and tips off,let me know what you find-mike
Locate the circuit breaker for the dryer. Run the dryer for awhile and with the back of your finger pressed against each of the two switches (it will be a double breaker), see if the breaker is getting warm or wait until the dryer quits then check the breaker for any noticeable increase in temperature. With properly rated breakers, they should not get warm. If getting warm, it is a sign the breaker is bad and should be replaced.
