Question about LG Dryers
The LG dryer (DLE2250) that we have has stopped getting hot. Is there a circuit breaker or fuse on the dryer itself that needs to be checked?
There's a thermal switch on the elements or the elements themselves may have burned in two and need replacing. Unless you know something about electrical and controls, I'd get a pro to check it...

what size is your breaker how many amps it should say on breaker are you cleaning the lint screen with it on top if the drier is getting too hot there is a device in it that's called a thermal limiter that would blow before the breaker would trip what kind or you in a house or apt. now on high heat can you hold your hand on the side of the drier.or cant touch it look at the vent under your house and tell me 1is it hanging down under the house then coming up to the hood 2whats its diameter3whats it made of we will go from there ok.there are three thermostats in that drier the first one runs at about 150 160 max second is a safety in case the first one fails it cycles at about 250 third is a safety if the drier exceeds 300 it will shut the heater down and wont rest it has to be replaced

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.
To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

There is a high probability that when you replaced your fuse box to circuit breakers that the wiring at the fuse box was retightened. If your dryer had been operating Ok for the better part of a year and then you started to blow fuses on a regular basis.. chances are the wiring coming from the fuse box tap was becoming loose from thermal expansion and contraction and that by changing to a breaker system.. your wiring was cut and reterminated to fit the breaker tap. I suspect you won't be having any additional problems...

You could set the dryer to manual dry and then no heat and see if the result is the same. If it runs then, you have a short in the heating system somewhere. If it still kicks out the breaker, you've got even worse troubles. Most likely an electronic board, and what ever caused it to go, like maybe still a heating system issue. I*d suggest calling a qualified service tech for this one. In the USA, you can find one at http://www.lge.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp
