ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

My Renault logan only blow cold air


So the AC is working, but when you select hot air, it doesn't work? Does cold air come out when you select hot air, or does no air come out? Please provide as many details as you can. What year is the car?

Perhaps the dial to select hot or cold air is not working. Does the dial feel the same as it always has, or has there been a change recently?

Is the engine warm when you try to select hot air? If the car hasn't been running a while you won't get hot air.

Electric dryer only has hot air, or air dry


This is one of those problems that could be a number of issues. It could be a timer contact stuck in a hot condition, it could be the operating thermostat inside the unit, or if you have a heat cycle selector switch, it may have shorted as well. Each one of these items should be tested with an ohm meter to verify which one of them is the bad part. Let me know if you need further help.
