Hi gordonmalcom...
Here are a few things to check...
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.

If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

SOURCE: kenmore 65882 .. replaced

Bummer, it is almost never the heating element. Check breakers, F U L L Y turn it off, forcefully so, and test again. Then look into the thermal limiters, and their connections, then look into the contact in the timer....
PLEASE remember to unplug the unit before any servicing or testing.

SOURCE: Kenmore 1992 96292800 doesn't heat fuse and element

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a kenmore dryer and have eliminated the fuse and element as being defective but still have no heat, correct ?


I have to ask though, have you checked the hi-limit thermostat and the thermal cut-out, which are actually on the element box as opposed to the fuse which is located on the blower housing ?

You can use the link below for a blow-out illustration of these components. #59 is the thermal fuse you referred to, #47 is the thermal cut-out and #48 is the hi-limit thermostat.

Let me know if you can add anything further or clarify if need be or if I can assist you in any other manner going forward and I'll be glad to do so. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa today.

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Why doesn't my oven heat

If neither your bake or broil is not working. The first thing taht you should check is your safety Hi Limit. Part# 318003614. You will have to remove your oven to gain access to this. it is located behind the oven cavity. Typically blows after a self clean. Careful to switch off your circuit breaker.

My whirlpool dryer comes on and runs good but it wont get hot can you tell me whats the problem


Hello there and welcome to fixya there are several things that could make this dryer not heat up
Here are the most common things

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, but the drum
turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer
from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is
blown, it will have to be replaced.




Enter your model number to see parts for your dryer.

Help me find my model number


Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric
solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner
assembly. If the dryer doesn\'t heat one or more of the solenoids may be
defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame
doesn\'t light, replace these coils as a set.


Dryer Igniter


If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the igniter might
be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer
igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.


Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can
burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element should be
checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must
be replaced if defective.


Heating Element Assembly

the heating element assembly on an electric
dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element
assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly
cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor



Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the
heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the flame sensor
might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not
as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.


High Limit Thermostat


Although not common, if the dryer doesn\'t
heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for
continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn\'t heat.


Cycling Thermostat




The cycling thermostat regulates the
temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn\'t heat it may be
caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.


Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at
fault when the dryer doesn\'t heat. Check all of the other components in
this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The
main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is
defective.


Timer
The timer is normally not at fault if the
dryer doesn\'t heat. In many situations where timers are replaced they
end up being returned. Check all of the more common components in this
troubleshooting guide before replacing the timer

Kenmore elite microwave model 721.79203010 problems


I'd check to make sure you don't have a door switch that isn't functioning properly. Also, might be a control panel or control panel interface issue.

Runs but doesn't heat replaced two fuses and magnetron still doesn't heat


Here is your free answer in under 10 minutes ...

You have a faulty door safety interlock switch. I wish you would have searched your problem here before you spent all that money on the magnetron. I have answered this question dozens of times here at this site.

When the oven runs but doesn't heat, more often than not it is nothing more than a faulty micro switch in the door latch system. When the switch doesn't work properly, the oven doesn't know the door is closed. If the door isn't closed, the oven will not energize the magnetron. Capacitors and magnetrons are **** and expensive answers but these items are extremely tough. It is the tiny contacts in the micro switch that can not stand the repeated abuse given them when we (read me in that number too) open the oven while it is energized causing a repeated flash across the contacts.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

My broiler doesn't work in my JennAir S136 range and I think the problem is the selector switch. How can I confirm this?


Hello,

To do that you could check if the correct power is going to broil element.That can by TURNING OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER, remove door by opening to appx 30 degree position where is shold stay open,pull off door,remove broil element and attach a volt meter set to measure at least 240 volts ac and attach the meter leads to the wires on broil element, restore power set controls to broil and check for 240 vac at element. If 240 vac at element it's the element thats defective, if 240vac not present the selector switch is the problem, espically if bake works

Good luck,i hope this helps ya diagnose your oven

Recently moved to new house. Dryer was working before, now it runs, drum turns but doesn't heat. Have tried adjusting fabric setting. Outside vent is clear and blows while running.


more than likely the heating element is not working. if there's no heat at all, this is probably the culprit. you have to gain access to the heating element to test it for continuity. no continuity=bad element=needs to be replaced. if you can get this far, then it's easy to change it out.

Hi there Have recently moved into a house with a Belling 626 white, electric cooker and the grill doesn't seem to be working. It has a mian oven, top ovem and "dual grill". The main oven...


ISOLATE THE MAINS POWER BEFORE CHECKING THE APPLIANCE
Run your fingers along the grill element, in this model it is accessible, check for raised areas or small hole or roughness not food burnt, if visible, it should be Black Grey colour at the blemish, you can obtain parts from www.whitegoods.co.uk you will need the model and serial numbers.
The grill elements come out but when unsrewed sometimes the ceramic holders crack, remove element before ordering as you may have to replace the element holders.
Hope this has been helpful

The air blows but there is no heat. damn thing is only year and half old and samsung will not help


Unplug the dryer. Remove the control panel on the top. Look inside for a sheet of paper with the wiring diagram or service instructions. If you don't find one there, look on the back cover panel. (Every US appliance maker provides this, but I've never looked inside a Samsung dryer so I don't know about their practice.)

If you find the wiring diagram, you can use it to identify the wires going to the thermostats and heating elements. Now you can use an ohmmeter to check which part is open; the wiring colors marked on the diagram will let you find the terminals in the control panel going to the thermostats and heaters so you don't have to take everything apart for diagnosis. Note: in a typical dryer, if you get no heat on Medium, but you get heat on the Low setting, you already know the Medium heat element is burned out. High heat uses both elements.

If you don't find a wiring diagram, you will have to look for the thermostats and heater terminals. Usually there is a thermostat mounted on the door frame at or near the top of the opening to the drum. There will be a second thermostat mounted on the top of the heater pan or box. Usually these are supposed to be closed (you get continuity) when they are closed. The heaters should show some resistance, but should not be open.

If you find an open circuit from the control panel, it doesn't mean the part itself is bad; it could be a problem with the wiring terminal connecting the part. This is often obvious when you see it; the insulation at the terminal will show signs of overheating.

TOP OVEN WORKS OK BUT BOTTOM OVEN DOES NOT HEAT UP


Hello,

There are a number of reasons why you may find that your oven doesn't heat up, and troubleshooting oven heating elements is not too complicated, so you should be able to manage this in a few hours. When you are trying to decide what is the cause of your oven not heating up properly, you should be able to identify the different problems, and also understand how to repair the oven without too much difficulty. If you find a lot of problems, then you may need to provide a different solution, for example replacing the heating element and fittings completely.
Heating Element is Broken
This is perhaps the most common cause of the oven not heating up. The element inside the oven will not become hot if the electrical connections are damaged, or if the element itself is not working. The heating element can be removed and replaced easily, and this is perhaps a very good idea if you have any problems with the heating system of your oven. Test the heating element by firing up the oven with the door open, and your hand close to the front of the element. You should be able to feel it warming up, so if it doesn't, take of the screws which hold it in place, and then unplug the connections. You can take the heating element to a store and they should be able to replace the part for you.

Hope this help in solving the problem.....
