Yes but it could also be a faulty control or sensor. Check the heat sensor.

SOURCE: Dryer tripped out during cycle

An electric dryer must be on a circuit by itself. If you lost power to downstairs sockets, you will need an electrician to separate the 120volt side from the 240volt side. You may not have a problem at all with the dryer. If another appliance was operating at the same time as your dryer, that appliance would have overloaded your circuit and tripped the breaker. Please have this looked into by an electrician to avert a possible fire!
Your tech should have recognized this situation or maybe I have misunderstood the issue, but I gave my opinion based on the question above,

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

SOURCE: Heating element heats up, but dryer will not spin.

Since you stated that the heating element is heating up I believe it rules out the thermal switches.
When you push the start button does it make the motor make any noise? Maybe hear the motor humming? Two things to check for are Broken Belt or Bad Motor:
This requires common sense and since you are going to be bypassing the safety features you need be CAREFUL.

First, with door open, manually press in door switch to by-pass door safety, then press "start", try to manually start the dryer by spinning the drum by hand, If you hear the motor humming but it does not start spinning on it's own; most likely it is a broken belt which can be changed without much difficulty for less than $15 bucks. NOW if it then continues to spin on it's own GET YOUR HAND OUT OF THERE and close the door; you have a bad motor and even though it started it needs to be replaced. A motor for that is available for just under $100 bucks and is not to bad to replace, I would recommend replacing the belt at the same time since you will be in there. Good Luck!

Frigidaire FEQ1442CESO wont stop beeping

Mine did the same thing. It started right after the warranty ran out. I dealt with it for a long time until 1 day it wouldn't stop running. I saw a couple internet posts about defective circuit boards in this model so I got brave and took mine apart. Once I got the board out and examined it I found 7 or 8 cracked solder joints, including the main power supply to the board. I reheated them with a soldering iron and added a little bit more solder to a couple of them and now my dryer works like the day it was new.

Drum sparking

Hi Keith, I am happy to assist you!

From what you have described it sounds like the heater on your Frigidaire dryer may possibly be loose. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to proceed further.

Dryer heating is sporadic, sometimes can dry in 45 minutes, other times 4 hours for same type loads?

Not sure what make or model you have but it sounds like you have a bad element. It's hanging loose and the ends are touching from time to time causing what you have described.

Installed a heating element but dryer dont turn on

Was dryer running, but not heating before? Could be a connection that was left loose upon reassembly. Check for tripped breaker in house electrical panel. Is cord from dryer plugged in?

A grounded element on an electric dryer is an element that has broken and the element heating wire has touched something metal, like the cage that is suppose to hold the element or the element metal housing around the element. What this does is, the element only heats on the section that is touching the metal part and usually this part of the element is only heating at about 1/2 heat output. An grounded element can also stay on even when the dryer is not in use!!

Oven heats up very slowly and does not get very hot

Check your power to the oven at the terminals where the power cord connects.Should be 220 volts. Also check the terminals of the bake element for loose connections or a burnt wire.
