Question about Dryers
I recently dried a few pairs of shoes and near the end of the dry cycle, my dryer started to make a horrible scraping sound. I opened up the dryer to find that the heating coil had been severed and was pulled in such a way that the drum was scraping against the damaged coil. Instead of purchasing a new assembly with the coil attached for a whopping $150, I opted to buy a recoil kit. I purchased the one recommended to me by a seller for a much more reasonable $10 plus shipping. I installed it and now the dryer gets exceptionally hot and the inside glows bright orange for a few seconds before the thermal protection circuit cuts off power to the coil. Is there a correct recoil kit for my machine or must I buy the more expensive assembly? Or is there more to installing a recoil kit that I should know? The part I received was numbered Q622034. Thanks for your help.
The correct part number that we have on hand (Appliance Parts Warehouse, Sears, etc) is 5300622034. This would be the correct element restring for this model. Tried to find the number you have but couldnt. If its the wrong restring kit, it will do just what its doing. They make these just the right length for the resistance values. I know the old GE models you had to measure them just right. I believe that you probably have the wrong one. Hope this works for you. Jim
