    One expert says the heating element is bad and the other says the motor? Frigidaire 5.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer Model#: GLEQ2152EE runs 30 minutes, quits, trips the breaker. Then I get advice for a gas stove?

The heating element by far is the most common part to cause this, the motor is very unlikely based on my experience of 30 years

This advice is for GAS ovens with glow bar type igniters. This is a fairly simple repair that MOST do-it-yourselfers can accomplish with just a little guidance. But, first, here’s a little gas oven theory to help you better understand how to determine if an igniter is bad:

The way the ignition system in most of today’s ovens work is like this:

  1. Set the oven or broiler temperature.
  2. The igniter begins to glow.
  3. Once the igniter reaches a certain current potential, the gas safety valve opens.
  4. Gas is introduced into the manifold and you have ignition.
  5. NOTE: It can take roughly 30 – 90 seconds from the time you set your oven temp to the time it takes for the gas to ignite.

NOTE: This is a designed safety feature of the oven to prevent free flowing gas from accumulating in your home without ignition. That’s why you typically don’t hear any gas flowing when you have an igniter problem. You might think you have a gas problem when actually you have an ignition problem.

MY FRIGIDAIRE AFFINITY MODEL # AEQ6000ESO WILL NOT HEAT. IT STARTS FINE.


There is a reset on some models by unplugging the appliance and waiting a couple minutes then plug back in make sure timer is on off position and pulled out. You can also open and close the door just alil bit 6 times within 12 seconds while machine is plugged in. But I think you should test ur thermostats and heating element with a multi meter for continuity? A worse case may be that the motor has burned a winding and or ur ur power outlet is only giving half the current as the dryer uses 120 to run and the other 120 to operate the heating? thus if u only get 120 instead of 240 volts you will get an appliance that runs but does not heat.

How do i fix dryer taking long time to dry


BAD HEATING ELEMENT. I believe that particular model has a ring type heater coil; very effective but fragile. The dryer must be disassembled until you see the entire heater coil, I've attached a photo. The replacement is less than $80 via Amazon Prime, I know, I've done this. The kicker is that the coil was still putting out a little heat but taking forever to dry. You're just asking for a fire or a total breakdown which could adversely affect your control board (not cheap). Hope this helps. 5307dbc3-6273-485b-aaec-414a05b9c79c.jpg

How do i change the fuse on my Affinity dryer?


Thermistor or high limit switch has tripped; usually due to low air flow from lint build-up or vent blockage. OR, the heating element went bad and a new one can be ordered. In some cases, I have received new thermal switches with the element. It's a job getting the dryer apart and inspecting the element, but you need to know for sure before you have a fire or a control board failure.

My dryer model dv231aew/xaa Will not shut off unless you open the door....on/off & pause shows its working but its not


follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas
Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace the heating elements.
