As long as there is no break in the heater element, there is no problem with the heater element. The thermostat is bad if you are not getting the proper amount of heat.

SOURCE: Hi,

Hello,

First of all, if you have checked the element with a meter an it indicates it's "open" then yes it is faulty.

Second, it can be a challenge to change the element and you might want to consider an expert.

**unplug the unit from the power source**

Note where the wires are attached to the heater and remove them. Now you'll see there is a single nut in the center, likely about a 5/16 or 3/8, or similar in metric. Once that nut is off, the heater should pull straight back and out. It may need some firm pulling. The tricky part is lining it up properly when re-installing it as to get in the bracket which keeps it from contacting the basket.

You can do a trial run if you're not sure, If once you start you think it isn't going well, phone a certified tech.

Hope that helps.

good Luck :)

probably not the heating element but one of the toc's has gone(temperature overload cut out)if you are handy with a multimeter test it and if it shows the symbol 'ol' youll know which one is gone

No heat cleaned all filters


Either the element has failed, or one of the thermal button fuses has failed open circuit. Either way the back has to come off the dryer.

Dryer runs but does not heat.


Hi.

Check the thermal fuse. The fuse can be tested reading impedance.You can replace the fuse straight away, or you can first test it using a multimeter set on Ohms. If the multimeter reads Ohms infinity when you touch the fuse contacts with the probes, then the fuse is gone. A good fuse will read zero or low impedance.

If the fuse is OK, then you can have a defective thermostat.
In the same way you test the thermostats, thermistors or cutoff located in the heating group, near to fan and element. If they are OK, then they will be conductive at room temperature and will read zero Ohms. If they are bad they read open (infinity). You need to disconnect the part's contact to test properly.

The rest depends if the dryer is electric or gas.


On electric dryers you test the heating element. The heating element is tested in the same way. Set multimeter on impedance, disconnect element, and touch contacts with multimeter probes. If it reads open, then element is gone. A good element reading depends on the specific model. Most washer-dryers, including Whirlpool and Maytag read between 10 and 20 Ohms.


With gas appliances you need to test the ignitor, then coils and then the flame sensor. The ignitor is the most common cause for the problem. Heating coils problems are also common. The flame sensor does not fail very often.

Oven has stopped heating up


Hi.

This oven should have two elements.

If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature probe.

The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line on the circuit from electroning oven control to baking and broiling element.
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.

The temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.

If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

If only one element is failing, then the fault is probably the element. In that case you can test the element removing it from the cavity, and testing Ohms on the element. If circuit is open , then the element must be replaced.

Regards.

The iron does not heat up


Hi.

Either wiring is broken or the heating element is broken.

The heating element is tested taking apart the iron, disconnecting element contact, and reading impedance on element contact with a multimeter set at Rx1. If the element has no continuity (circuit open), then the element must be replaced.
