SOURCE: frigidaire dryer

there are several issues that can cause this most common is the vent restricted backing up heat in the dryer if its as old as you say you need to check the whole vent system it has to be 4inches dia all the way if its mashed or drooping under the house its restricted if its folded over or mashed behind the dryer its restricted the thermal limiter is a safety thermostat it opens about 300 degrees to prevent fire the dryer has three thermostats an operating thermostat a safety thermostat and the thermal limiter if the operating thermostat fails then the safety thermostat takes over and cycles on about 165 on and off if both thermostats fail then the thermal limiter opens about 220-300 depending and it doesn't reset and cuts all the power to the dryer till a tech can check everything i just told you about so if your vent is clear and the best way to vent is 4inch pvc drain pipe 90 it up behind the drier then connect with a short peice of metel vent then just replace all three thermostats

what yo have to do is take a pudy knife and insert it between the top lid and front panel in the front of the unit, you will find a clip on the left side and right side with the knife press the clip in and you can lift the lid after that there is 2 screws at the top and two in front of your lint filter remove them and you are all set

My dryer suddenly stopped drying today. It just blows cold air. Before I took notice of all the lint in dryer, I took the heating element coil out which doesn't look damaged.


The lint MAY have caused a thermal limit fuse to blow out. If that is the case then it has to be replaced. There is also a chance that the heater element has failed and as you saw it is like a light bulb coil. You need to inspect it very closely if you don't have an ohm meter to test it for continuity.

How many cubic feet is the frigidaire FSE447GHS0 front load washing machine


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided you need to know the cubic footage of your Frigidaire washer, FSE447GHS0. I have researched your model and it appears to be 4.4 cubic ft. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Fde546les0 frigidaire dryer blowing thermal limiters


If the fan is running and all duct work is clear, the control thermostat/s will need replacing as they are not switching the heaters off when up to temperature, the dryer then overheats and the thermal limiters blow.

Frigidaire Affinity AEQ6700FSO electric dryer does not heat, then shuts off within 10 minutes.


Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.

I have fridgidaire dryer and when I push the start button it just makes a buzzing noise but does not start


Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then remove the two screws securing the top panel to the rear and slide the panel backwards and off.

Behind the drum is the thermal limiter which is wired in series with the motor.

Check the continuity of the thermal limiter and if it reads open, replace it including the high-limit thermostat located on the heater housing (also shown in the picture above). Bypass the thermal limiter for troubleshooting purposes by joining the wires together and insulating it properly. If the dryer starts and runs properly with this setup, the thermal limiter is indeed open. If the dryer still does not start, jump a wire between the COM and NO terminals of the door switch. The dryer should start with the thermal limiter and door switch bypassed, otherwise bypass the motor relay on the control board. Replace control board if the dryer starts with the three bypassed, otherwise the motor is the one at fault and needs to be replaced.

Now that I have replaced the thermister on my Frigidaire Gallery Series 2004 electric dryer not only does it not produce any heat, though the blower works, the motor which turns the drum is not working...


Do not replace the control board unless the necessary troubleshooting is done to eliminate the other possible causes of the problem. The dryer will not heat if the motor doesn't run because the heating circuit is completed by the motor centrifugal switch which the motor activates. The problem with the motor not running must be determined and addressed first.

Disconnect power and with the top panel removed, locate the thermal limiter, a non-resettable fuse, mounted on the rear wall of the dryer.

Bypass the thermal limiter by disconnecting and joining the wires together. Reconnect power and start the dryer. Replace the thermal limiter along with the high-limit thermostat if the dryer starts and the problem with the motor not running is solved.

Let us know if the dryer still doesn't start and/or the drum lamp doesn't turn on when the door is opened with the thermal limiter bypassed for further advice.

Frigidaire dryer overheats, already checked venting


check upline from the thermal limiter, to the temperature control.
it's elementary, but double-check the right part number with the folks who sold you the limiter.
after that, it's hard to say- possibly you got a bad limiter.

Thermal limiter stops dryer; replaced multiple times. Dryer dead.


I think you are working on the wrong end. Check the fan and inlet ductwork of the dryer, if the air isn't moving properly, it will not move enough to keep the coils and limiters cool and they will fail after working properly a few times.
