ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

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 or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
overheating.

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


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.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

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.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Ran dryer towels and sneakers didn't dry compleatly took out sneakers ran gave code AR drum turn and heats?


Make sure that the exhaust vent is not clogged! If it is, the unit will not dry anything properly since the humidity has no way of leaving the inside of the machine.

Error Code E7-11 on a Sharp AR-287 photocopier


This code is related to laser unit functioning problem. Power the machine off and on and if it appears again, do the following;
  1. Open document glass and clean inside mirrors and document glass with a clean dry soft cloth and test.
  2. Check flat cable that connects copy lamp and attach firmly from the main board.
  3. Replace the laser unit if the above fails.
Ask for assistance if you doubt from a qualified technician and you will succeed.

Engine light on but no fault codes showing. fluids are fine.


Have you tried the "key dance" to see if there are codes?

With engine off and key off, rotate to run (not start), then off, then run, then off and finally run. Watch odometer window and see if you see P-codes or the word pdone.

If you see pdone, there are no codes. As the Gen 1 Durango's age, there ar quite a few emissions/evap rubber hoses under the hood and down by the transfer case that eventually dry out and crack.

I dont have the cd for the action repay


if u dont have the ar cd, that's ok. you use the cd and ar cord to install the action replay code manager. if you go to a website like neoseeker or supercheats that has action replay codes posted, you can copy a code and then go to the ar code manager and add it to your codelist. i only use the code manager for really long cheats. you can still enter cheats manually to ur ar, but without the disk, you cant quickly put long cheats onto ur action replay. you can get an ar disk at walmart, target, or gamestop. sorry if this is too long, but i hope it helps.

Action replay problem


Your AR Cartridge probably needs a cleaning. Use some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip and rub it on the pins of the AR Cartridge. Then use a dry q-tip to dry the rubbing alchohol. If that doesn't work then you should probably buy a new AR.
