It dries great and doesn't continue to run, however, on/off light still stays on even after it's done.


Dryer runs then shuts down wont start up for an hour:
Bad motor windings

Gas Dryer no heat: or shuts down soon after heating CHECK:

Thermal Fuse
If the air flow in the dryer is restricted, the temperature in the heating chamber can get hot enough to blow the thermal fuse. If the fuse blows, it cuts power to the coils that control the gas valve. The fuse is usually mounted to the exhaust duct just inside the back panel. You can check its continuity with an ohmmeter. If, after disconnecting the fuse, you get any reading other than 0 when you touch the leads of the meter to its terminals, it has blown. There's no way to restore it -- you'll have to install a replacement.

Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?

Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.

Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.

Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

Clean the out door coil, take a garden hose to it, and be thorough. A dirty coil can not reject the heat and will shut down. You should clean the indoor coil as well just watch that water stays out of the furnace.

The first problem I believe you have is your hot water entering the unit is NOT hot enough. Turn up the temperature setting on your hot water heater. The water in your pipes should come out around 120 degrees Fahrenheit. That should be hot enough to burn your skin so use a thermometer to test. Second the internal heating coil may be burnt out or operating very low and may need to be replaced. For it to sterilize it needs to heat the inside to over 212 degrees Fahrenheit when steam is created. You should definitely make sure that the unit is drying your dishes and steam is spewing out the front exhaust vent during that cycle. Third the soap you use should be a better quality such as Cascade, or Finish. You may also try 2 TBSP of bleach during the WASH cycle. Which will also cause to sterilize.
The only reason you can be getting mold is lack of heat. If you are saying it is a recent problem then I would consider how old is the machine? And look toward the heating coil element.
If the heating coil is working, the washing unit may not be getting enough power. Make should the circuit is properly load rated so it is getting enough electricity to get it hot, hot, hot.

My refrigerator and freezer working fine,but the door jam between freezer and frig gets very hot can anyone tell me why ?


Either the fan which cools the coils and compressor , behind the rear panel behind the refrig , is not working ( or something is caught in the fan blade ) , or , the coils under the refrig need cleaning badly .

No heat generated from the inside unit in Misubishi Mr. Slim


If you do not have a windbaffle installed on the outside unit the unit may never come out of defrost in low ambient temperatures. Depending on the outside temperature it might be telling the pcb to stay in defrost to keep the compressor from slugging and being damaged.

I have an HE3 that heats up when turned on, but won't stay hot. We've cleaned out lint & vent(even inside machine),replaced thermostat and back-up/safety thermostat. What else can we try?


You may have a bad heater coil. The heater it's self. Sounds like works till it gets hot. That means the coil has a short or a break in the wiring. Or just a burnt connector to the coil. unplug it pull the back and and get out the coil cking all connections for bad contacts.

Frosted Coils


You prob do have a restriction in the sealed system. This causes the coils to not heat enough to stay defrosted. 68 degrees i believe is the minimum so if its 70 its def got a issues with the coils not staying hot enough to stay defrosted. This will most likely require replacement. Especially if you have cleaned coils and still freezes. Try it in different room. If persists most likely a sealed restriction. Replace.
