Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
Please help. I had a lightening strike a few days ago which messed up many of my appliance including my Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer. I pressed the reset button on my heating elemint after it wouldn't heat and it started heating. Problem fixed right? Wrong. Now the dryer element continually stays warm even when it isn't running thru a cycle. I have to unlug the dryer every time after I dry my cloths to stop the element from heating. I haven't take out the element for inspection yet but will do so tomorrow. Does any one out there have any suggestions for repair. Thanks in advance. Any help will be much appreciated.
Yes, get a new element. The reason it's on all the time is because the element coils have broken and one of the coils is touching the canister that encloses it. This creates a direct short to ground. By the way, the element has 120 volts to it all the time. It will only HEAT when 240 is applied through the centrifugal switch of the motor. Your 120 volts is shorting to ground... not enough amps to trip the circuit breaker, but enough to glow the element.
