Question about Dryers
Gets too hot at times
Posted by Anonymous on
As a service tech and I came to your home for repair first question I would ask is what parameter are you using to determine it is too hot not trying to be rude not a normal complaint dryers heat to 150-170F based on model before cycling thermostat opens if a dryer overheats it will normally open the hi limit stopping the heat cycle in some cases depending where the most concentration of heat is it will open the thermal fuse depending on how it is wired it will either not run or run but not heat dont know what type of exhaust tubing you have on unit if you have the flexible type then you can use a cheap pocket thermometer to push into it to read the highest temp then cover the small hole with silver tape if not possible then remove exhaust hose and tape the thermometer to exhaust with same silver tape heat tape used in HVAC cheap if you read over 180F investigate the cycling thermistor
