Ignighter workis and burner has flame but will not keep burnner lit. speed queen dryer. made by RAYTHEON


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

My speed queen aem497w is 15 years old and quit drying recently, no heat ,drum spins as usual, vent is clear , what gives ? Dave from Canal Winchester,Ohio


Hi - I am not too familiar with Speed Queens, I work a lot on Maytags, however the principals are the same.

So here goes - there is most like to be an open circuit due to the following , bad/burnt wire or terminal somewhere close to the heat elements, open circuit on the two thermostats & the over-temp fixed close to the elements, the outside chance of the thermal fuse blown.

One would noramally gain access thru the front (Best) and often from the back, sorry I cannot guide you on this as stated earlier.

I have a speed queen electric dryer model number aem45300. problem the dryer runs but does not heat. We cleaned out all the area that contained lint. Is there a reset button for the heating element in...


There is no reset button, check yoru breaker, by turning FULLY OFF (somewhat forcefully off) then back on and test again.

All thermal limiters will auto reset when cooled...

Dryer will not heat up Does run


It's probably the thermostats that are normally attatched to the element or it could be the element itself. They are nprmally placed in the rear of the appliance.

The thermostats will only cost a few pounds.

Speed Queed AEM677W2 dryer does not blow hot air


Below is a checklist provided by; www.repairclinic.com. They also provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams for DIY assistance.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Firstly, ascertain that you have made a positive heat selection, then read on.
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.

Dyrer won't heat...


I can not find a diagram using your model number.
However, most Speed Quenn dryers have 2 screws on the bottom right and left sides of the front panel.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the 2 screws.
Lift the panel forward and disconnect the door switch wires.
Reemove the belt and drum to access the heater circuit.
