If you have absolutely no heat in the unit at all, it is likely the thermostat described in the above description, or the element itself. Both are easy to replace, cheap compared to a repirman, and can be done at the same time. Here is a video I used to replace the heating element on my dryer. I have hard water in my state and it has gone out twice in 5 years. Dryers are all very similar. A big drum with a motor to turn it and a blower that sends the air past the heating element and through the drum, then through the lint trap and out the vent. You may have to access it differently (Back vs. front panel) but they are all very similar. in addition you can normally find the part itself at a local repair shop and put it in yourself. Hope this helps, and don't forget to rate!!

ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat:
Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.

Re:Electric Convection oven does not heat up. Convection fan works, light works.


It is probably and electrical service issue. If this is a North American unit, it uses two electrical circuits to provide power. You must find and reset the breakers and check that the wiring is operating as intended. Less likely: It could also be a manufacturing defect. DeLonghi uses screw compression connections on some products. Sometimes, they don't work well.
