Model # PYE4500AYV Serial # 11168132AV. The unit just quit working. It has no power and the light inside will not even come on. The out was checked and was good. The cord was checked with an OHM meter and found to be good. What's my next step?

    I didn't see any internal fuses. I took the switch off the door and checked with an OHM meter and everything checked OK. I am having a hard time checking the timer. It has so many wires, I don't know if I am checking it right. IF THE TIMER IS BAD, WILL EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE LIGHT NOT WORK? I checked the heating element and it also checked OK.

    i forgot one thing and that is the start button. make sure that there is power there. when you push the safety switch in you should hear a faint click in the upper counsel if you do then the power is getting there, you can also check motor and see if got power there. some where the power is being broken.

How do i make it quit beeping so often

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer is beeping and flashing lights. To reset your dryer you should disconnect power, by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker, for roughly ten minutes. Which lights are blinking on your display panel? It could be providing you an error code.

If the reset does not help correct the issue, could you please provide me with your model number? Typically you can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of your dryer. If you need further assistance please reconnect with me. -Matt

Dryer runs but wont heat

There are 2 possibilities for this problem.
1. The limit switch is out. The limit switch is located on the heating element on the back of the dryer. This is a small button type part. it will have 2 prongs on it for 2 wires that slide on for power.
2. The heating element is out. This will be on the back of the dryer and depending the model it should be a long metal piece that has metal elements inside of it to heat the dryer. or it could be a large round unit. these can be tested with an om meter.

The limit switch will be the cheapest to start with on replacing.
If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to ask. I will need the make, model, and the serial number of the unit to help you further. the model and serial number can be found by opening the dryer door and looking by the hings. there should be a sticker with this information on it.

Substitute heating element

Go to the local appliance repair parts store- they will have generic replacement elements and will likely be able to get you a right one for your dryer.
You should know if possible two things: model/serial number for your unit and length of the heating coil. (perhaps you've already taken it out)

The overheat thermostat is tripping and cutting power to the dryer (like it supposed to). The thermostat unit may be defective or the dryer is getting way too hot.

Well if it quit the fuse is blown. The fuse mounts on the blower housinf and judges the temperature in the exaust. Check your venting pipe for obstructions and replace the fuse:
