If element and fuses check out for continuity, then obviously, power is not reaching the unit's element. Make sure the wall socket is hot. Does the motor turn the drum? If so you will have to check for voltages inside till you find the area that is remiss is passing the electricity down the line. Check switches and relays for proper operation.

My Samsung electric dryer runs but doesn't get hot


Clothes dryers usually have one of three issues when they fail to heat.
Taking a good electrical meter ( with ohms readings), check first the heating element.
If it checks good, then try all of the thermostats and the fuse. (There may be as many as 5 thermostats.)
You will need to unplug the wires off of each of these items that you are testing before you test them.
Whilst you are looking, be sure to test the two hot leads from the circuit breaker box, because one of the two hot lugs is for the machine operation, one is for the heating element.
God bless your efforts.

Kenmore elite electric dryer runs but then gets hot and then shuts off, replaced thermal fuse, dryer vent and tubing not plugged, dryer runs gets hot blows thermal fuse again.


DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Stove about 4 years old started blowing fuse in house main box. Replaced fuses worked 24 hours now it blew again stove was not in use at the time. When it blew 2nd time the fuses were extremly hot.


This indicates that one of the heating elements or control has developed a problem. Can you provide the make and model for this range?? Replace the fuses if blown. Check to see if any element is hot - including those inside the stove. Note any that are. Shut off the stove and unplug it from the outlet. When cold, perform a careful visual inspection of the heating elements on the cooktop AND both the bake and broil elements inside the oven (especially any that were found to be hot earlier). Run your fingers along the blind side of the elements to detect any openings, blobs, etc. in the metal covering of the element. Replace any damaged elements with new. Start the process over again - especially the new element. If found hot - check the control - is it on? The control may need replacement, too. This may require more skills / tools than you have and need a pro. Good luck!

-Check heater element. Possibly it's broken.
-If so replace new one.
-If heater element is good then check thermal fuse. If not continuity

Fan not working...my car is overheating


The fuses are located in the fuse box under the hood, but could be the fan motor too, check if you have power at the motor

My Kenmore 400series 6942 electric dryer works, but doesn't get hot. Pulled the heating element had it tested. It shows good. Had three other relay/fuses tested. They show good. It has to be easy enough...


This is the most common locations for thermal fuses and heating element on Whirlpool,Kenmore,Estate dryers. seth765.jpg if there is no heat then one of the thermal fuses is bad you will need to check the continuity on them and replace the one that does not have any continuity

My dryer will not get hot


Check the heating element for possible short. Replace if necessary. If the heating element is good, check the thermal fuse and the door switch. If it is the door switch, the unit will not come on at all.
