GE DPSB620EC1WW Will not turn on Heating Elements

I have a GE Profile Series Dryer that the heating elements will not turn on. New control board from GE did not fix the problem. 220 vac present at K2 & K3 on control board. Elements check out ok and centrifugal switches are ok and elements are ok, but control board will not turn on K2 or K3. Could I possibly have a bad Inlet or Outlet thermistor?

    As I stated in my posting, 220 vac present at K2 & K3 on Power Board. Elements are good and motor switches are good back to second leg of 220 vac. Something is telling Power Board not to turn on the elements. If I knew what the values of the Input/Output thermistors are suppose to be that would be a great help.

    Hi and thank you for the reply!

    Now we are getting somewhere. The Inlet thermistor (white wires) is reading 103K ohm and the Outlet thermistor (blue wires) is reading 7.3K ohm at room temperature. I am guessing the Inlet thermistor is so far out of range that the Power Board doesn't know what to do with it, so it does nothing. Sound like I am on the right track? Dan

    Well, based on the information you provided, I went and purchased a new Intake thermistor. The new thermistor reads 96k ohms, not too far from the one I thought was bad, which reads 107k ohms. I thought the thermistor values you gave me were for both Input & Output. What gives? I now think I have a part I don't need. Do you have any other advice?

Yes... that is very possible... If they didn't fix your problem i'd complain if i were you... but there might be an issue with your motherboard... you should check to make sure the wiring and circuits aren't defective. i would suggest you reset your dryer... comment me if i didn't answer your question.. thanks

    Yes, you are on the right track. The thermistor is bad.Once you fix this, probably it would fix the issue.

No heat in kenmore series 80, model 85040

hello there:
here is some troubleshooting ideas for you to help
A dryer sometimes won't heat or heats too slowly because of a variety of reasons. By following the guidelines below, you can inspect the heating elements on a gas or electric dryer to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty

The electric oven will not heat. Too the setting

If there is not heating at all, check the temp probe (SENSOR ASM (Oven Sensor Assembly)) the wirings to the elements, and the control assembly.There is also a thermal fuse that need to be checked.

If heating is poor, test both elements, check the vent system an control assembly.

GE Electric Spectra Oven botton element will not heat

If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.
