Lamona 4601 double oven.Stopped heating up so presumed element had packed in?

Try this. ANSWER is not specific to your machine.
You dont need the element to be red hot to know its working,
If its not obviously getting hot after 30 seconds its not working.
I dampen a cloth and wipe the COLD element and then watch the moisture dissapear quickly if the element is working.
First, have you recently done a self-clean cycle?
If so we can suspect that the OVER HEAT cutoff switch was triggered.
BUT before we conclude anything, check the broiler element for operation.
If the broiler also does not work, then its highly likely that the overtemp cutoff relay was triggered. This generally requires a technician. BUT
If you have a schematic, it will show if this switch is a ONE TIME USE SWITCH and needs to be replaced, OR if it is a pushbutton resetable switch. In either case the oven needs to be dismantled somewhat to get at the switch... I would call a technicain.

No hot water in shower. Sometimes runs hot then goes cold or runs cold. I have less than 2 year old Kohler Faucet K-T10448-4-CP. I replaced the pressure balance valve unit. No luck. I changed the hot...

Refer to the manufacturer's recommendations for back-flushing/descaling to flush out mineral deposits and build-up in the heat exchanger. You can check to see if this is a problem by comparing the full cold water flow with full hot water flow at the faucet. If the hot water flow is significantly slower than the cold then the heat exchanger is likely clogged with deposits and will not transfer heat sufficiently. If the flow is good then the heating element(s) maybe defective.

My electric boiler (80litres) is only giving out about half the capacity of hot water, then goes cold. On the temp; gauge on top the needle only reads half of what it used to.

The unit probably has two heating elements and the bottom one is burnt out, therefore only the top portion of the tank is heating...

check and change the bottom heating element.

First your broiler heating element may have gone bad and now you oven heating element may have gone bad. Using an OHM meter disconnect them and test for their value.Full scale on the meter means it is shorted. No meter movement means that it is open.Eitehr means to obtain a new element(s) and replace it/them.

Model YLR2-5-90HZ3 cold/hot/water dispnser with fridge won't heat

I have the YLR2-5-96H2 and hot water stopped heating up. I unscrewed the casing and unplugged the connections to the circular heating element and 2 circular probes. Brushed off the white dust build up on the probes and it started to heat water again. I ruled out faulty heating element, because it got really hot just seconds after turning on the hot water switch.

Washing machine doesnt heat the water

Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

It runs, but no heat

i dont believe at this time its anything mentioned at top most people dont realize that dryers are split cuircuts
is this a 220 setup
and if its a 220
the cuircuit breaker for this is set by 110 each one for the heating element one 110 for the guages and motor
goto circuit breaker and flip the breakers this should return your dryer working ability
other thing is are the guages working properly
dryer doesnt have to run to test guages turn to the highest setting and let them run completly threw cycle if they stop on a particular setting for a long length of period then the guages are bad
