You need a man with a meter to check for continuity and resistance in the heater coil

If there is both then you need to check the wiring to the heater.

If that is OK you need to go to the thermostat which controls the heater to check to see if it is open circuit when cold and closed circuit when hot as that signal causes the programmer to advance once the heater has reached its correct temperature

And finally the programmer which supplies the heater

In reality it is a job for someone who is comfortable using a voltmeter

Why is my heat or air is not blowing and car is running hot


How hot is the engine running in degrees f? Does the radiator fan run?
With hvac turned on, check voltage and ground at the blower motor. If good voltage and ground, suspect the blower motor is faulty.

Kenmore 500 series gas dryer has no heat and no glow. Thermostat fuse has continuity. Replaced ignitor and coils. bypassed flame sensor and still have the same problem.


Hello,

Having checked or replaced what you have thus far here a few things still to check

Cycling thermostat in blower housing,in addition to thermal fuse it must have continuty to be good

Timer check wiring diagram in control panel and check for continuty that are supposed to be closed when set to a normal heat cycle

Motor switch heat circuit check again with wiring diagram and see which wires on motor switch must be closed when running so dryer will heat.This a built curcuit asurring the dryer will never heat when motor is off

If your model has it check heat relay in control panel for continuty on heating circuit for relay(not the circuit that closes relay)

as far as power to the ignitor the hot side comes from timer to and through the thermal fuse and cycling t-stat, to ignitor.the neutral comes from neutral wire on cord to and through motor when motor is running and motor switch is closed

so on ignotor plug check hot wire to ground(not neutral) if has 120 vac to it timer/t. fuse/ cycling t-stat and flame switch are all good and its the motor switch is the problem.The motor switch can not replaced seperatly and must replace entire motor

My motor was just rebuilt and put back on by the pool company. It is hot, so hot you cannot leave your hand on it. Is this normal? should I be concerned.


Yes its perfectly normal on a hot day with the motor being air cooled. As long as the motor isnt overheating (loss of power) and has issues running your fine. Keep in mind that the motor runs by exploding gasoline and the energy that doesn't get transferred to the mower to drive it and turn the blade is expelled in heat. Same as your car engine (will get hot to the touch).

My car runs fine everythiing seems good, just had a new radiator put on it, but when my car sits running for awhile it starts to overheat, then i start to drive and it cools back down?. please help


Check the electric cooling fan. There will be a sensor on the engine to tell it to turn on. The electric motor itself may be defective, and lastly, there will be a fuse to power the motor. Also, if the engine has been running hot, it may have damaged the thermostat. But from your description, that doesn't seem likely. Hope this helps.

2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport heating & a/c problem.


If your saying the blower runs intermittently, I'd start testing at the blower motor when problem is ongoing, if good voltage and ground with no blower action, suspect the blower motor. Did you use a test light to check voltage at fuses, as you can see, one fuse goes hot with the key on, the other fuse is hot all the time. The top wire in diagram for blower motor is voltage, the bottom wire is ground.
Any motor that uses brushes and the brushes are worn badly, the motor may run intermittently.

Dryer doesn't get hot


There is a Thermal Fuse and a Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) on most Whirlpool dryers. Which one did you check?

The Fuse is located on the blower fan housing. If blown, the dryer would not run at all.

The TCO is located on the heater box housing along with the Hi-Limit Thermostat. The TCO will be located at the end of the heater box opposite the heating element leads. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Please read through the link carefully and let me know if you have questions. NOTE: If the TCO is bad, replace the Hi-Limit Thermostat at the same time. Often, these two components are sold as a set. Failure to do so, may result in premature failure of the components you do replace. In addition, if you are missing one leg of your 220 service at the receptacle, the dryer will exhibit the same symptoms. That's because the drive motor only uses 110-120 VAC, while the heating circuits require the full 220 service. Verify your source voltage at the terminal block in the back of the dryer by checking across the two HOT (RED and BLACK) leads. Checking the voltage in this manner will also verify if the power cord is good.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Maytag Gas Dryer SDG515DAWW - heating stopped


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor a%20flame%20sensor%202.bmp flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the igniter
a%20igniter.jpg Igniter and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.
