SOURCE: will not heat

Your timer has a red wire (marked RH on the timer) disconnect it with the power off of course, check for continuity between this point and all other points on that timer. If you cannot get continuity even while slowly moving the timer manually all around the dial then you have a bad timer. Sometimes you can clean the points on the timer but most of the time you must replace it.

GE dryer, no heat?


Your heating element is most likely burned out . Have you made certain all of your lint vents for the dryer are not clogged ? Also , be certain to clean the lint filter every time you use the dryer. A buildup of lint in the dryer , in the hoses & on the back of the dryer inside in between the drum & the outer covering can get so hot it will catch on fire when the heat is working , and also , without a fire will burn up your heating element.

Dryer works fine except it does not seem to heat properly. Wondering how the element is installed and where I could find replacement heating element.


Hi,
I would need a model number to look up your heating element.
I can tell you that chances are if the dryer heats, but just takes to long to get things dry the heating element is probably ok.
Poor air flow is what causes dryer to take longer then normal to dry.
You will want to check your vent for restrictions such as kinks or lint build up. Don't forget to check the outside hood as it has a flapper or even a screen that can catch lint.
If your vent is ok then you need to take the dryer apart and check for lint build up around the blower housing and fan.

Fire in my dryer


I wouldn't use the dryer for now. It sounds to me like you have a lot of lint build up in your dryer back by the heating elements which is catching on fire. It is a very hazardous situation. You will need to disassemble your dryer and clean all the lint out from around the heating elements and your vent pipes as the fire can spread into your vent pipe.

Replaced thermal fuse ,ran cycle all the way than died again.Have had to replace fuse in past would usually get 9 months out of it .Replaced it dryer ran fine but after cycle completed dryer was dead...


Have you cleaned the lint out of the airways and the heat exchanger area? The lint filter traps most of the lint but not all, the airways and especially the area where the heating element is still fills up with lint. To get it out, you'll have to take the back off the dryer and open up the enclosure for the heating element and vacuum it out. The lint clogs the airway, which restricts the airflow, which lets the heating element get too hot, which is why the thermal fuse shuts it off. Otherwise, it would catch fire (and in some cases, still does). It should be good for another few years when you get the lint out. Good luck.

Can't get milk to foam


Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!
