Hi kevin,


With the ground already hooked up, it does not matter which terminal you hook the X or Y too on the heater. The heater is AC and a resistive load.  This means it doesnot have polarity, and will work both ways.   You done good getting high temp connectors, do you have high temp wire?

Brand new dryer wont heat

depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

I have a Maytag Electric Dryer model #MDE5500AYW that will not heat up. When I opened the front and looked at the heating element, I noticed that the wire attached to the heating element (a black wire)...

Okay have you replaced the wire with with the correct one? If the wire gauge is wrong it will do every time next you need a volt meter with a buzzer sound maker on it test your thermostat and hi limit thermostat if it makes a noise when testing its working. Only thing that would cause that wire to keep burning are those options and if all checks out okay then its faulty wiring which is grounding out somewhere which is a pain to trace and if you might not find the bad wire had a few of these with these problems and I ended up junking them big fire hazard sorry for the problem.

Our Frigidaire Oven (PFEF373AS4) does not heat up to the desired temperature. It is taking a long time to heat up.

Check for wiring problems. Pull the plug and inspect it for burned or corroded contacts. If it is bad, the wall socket is probably also bad. Also, check to make sure you have 230-250 VAC between the angled slots at the socket, and 115-125 between the straight slot and each of the angled ones.

If the house wiring is good, the next step is to inspect the wiring to the oven element. Look at the connections to the element itself. Do either of the wires look burned or overheated? Are the terminals heavily oxidized? If so, disassemble the connection, polish the terminals with dry Scotch-Brite and reassemble. Do the same check for the other ends of these wires (at the oven controller), and at the terminals where the power cord connects inside the oven.

If all of the wiring looks good - no high-resistance connections to limit the current - then you may have a bad controller or damaged temperature sensor.

When I set the oven to Bake - the temperature will not exceed 160 degrees F.? I hear that this is either a thermostat or element issue - how can I tell?

Hi flintdc, your problem has several possibilities. #1 unplug or trip the 220v breaker. #2 visually check the temp sensor mounting, position, wiring & connection. #3 check the heating element connection terminals, wiring & support post. Slowly flex the wires to check for brittle insulation and use a firm/small wire brush to clean wire connections & terminals. #4 the 'Baking Element' is app. $42.00 & 'Temp Sensor' is app. $36.00. Advice, when you buy a part locally have the model# and take the 'suspected' bad part to ask the clerk if they can check it compared to the new one with a DVM. Have a nice day.

Air Con E12HKE which is not giving any Hot air.

check to see if the wiring harnes has not come loose from the heating element. Check the heating element itself to insure that it is in good shape. To actually test a heating coil you will need an electrical meter one that has an ohm setting. Place the setting to "ohm" and disconnect the wiring from one side of the heater coil marking them to insure they go back the same way. Now take the meter connect one probe to the end of the element and the other probe to the other end of the element. If the meter gives you a signal that means you coil is good so the last thing to check would be your high limit switch. This switch turns off the heater in the event it gets too hot. They are usually preset at the factory for a specific temp. If the high limit switch has burned out heater won't work either. This switch looks like a silver button and has 2 wires going to it. Easy to remove and replace and inexpensive to buy Take model and serial numbers to appliance supply for the correct parts for you unit. Good Luck

You are missing over $150 in parts. You can buy a working unit out of the newspaper for that or less.
All of the wires on those models have letters and numbers on them near the connectors at each end.

Go to the Sears Parts Direct website with your Model Number and you may be able to print out a wiring diagram, because that is what you will need.

Admiral Dryer (Model # ADE7005AYW) wire connector burning causing no heat

I had the same problem with my dryer. Fixed it with high temp wire (875 F) and end connectors rated for the same temperature. Make good connections between the wire and the connectors because if they are poor they will heat up as well. Sometimes the thermostat will cause this problem as well or an older heating element that is going bad.

Wedge, one red wire to the right terminal of the heating element. The safety thermostat should of had a piggy back that fits over the left side terminal of the element and connected to one side of the safety thermostat. Other red to other side of safety thermostat, Orange from the timer (smaller connector) to the respective connection on jumper. Catriver.
