Question about Dryers
Dryer is taking longer than usual to dry. on high heat setting, element comes on for about 50 seconds, but stays off for a little over 2 minutes. Air coming out vent ranges from 123 to 162 degreestested hi-temp thermostat with voltmeter: hooked my voltmeter wires to terminals on either side of hi-temp thermostat closest to front of dryer (the 250-degree thermostat); i see 220 volts when element is on, but goes to 0 volts when element goes off. Is that what's supposed to happen? i don't know if circuit breaks or if circuit engages when this thermostat does it's job - i'm confused. i don't think what i'm doing is proving anything...
Element should cycle a little longer than that i think 2 min then cycles high limit thermostat u checked could be reading wrong when its gets to certain temp that thermostat opens up so wont get so hot and catch on fire .. take thermostat is the smallest one is your high limit thermostat probably the one going bad
