Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
Half of the heating element has continuity. does it need to be replaced? or is it possibly something else that wont let the dryer heat up?
The heating element is simply a single strand of resistive wire, so saying "half of it has continuity" makes no sense. If half of it only has continuity then that would mean this area in the middle you are calling half must be burned open and it would be bad. If you are accurately stating what you mean. I would set your meter you are using to do a voltage reading, check and see if you have your voltage at the 2 wires connecting to the heating element. If you have full voltage there and its not heating then your element needs to be replaced. If this dryer has a large plug going to the wall you will read roughly 240 volts AC, there. If it has a normal looking plug going to the wall (not likely) then you should be reading roughly 120 volts AC on those 2 wires connecting to the heating element. If it has a large plug going to the wall and you are only reading 120 volts or less on those 2 wires then your problem is somewhere else.
