Check the following to address this issue.

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

I don't know if this only an online reference or whther it's available as download.
If your computer has an HDMI o/p just connect that, this should supply video and audio. If not you will have to connect the aufio and video using separate leads. Note what it says about not all computer equipment being compatible with your monitor

Why is my oven not heating up?

My guess is the heating element has gone. Get online and search your domestic appliance web sites quoting the make / model / serial number etc and see what element is needed. If you are capable of good DIY and know how to isolate the cooker then its not a big job to replace. I've googled your model and the elements are readily available. You don't say where you are but the elements are readily available in UK for between 20 and 30$. I had a similar problem with my double oven and found a suitable height table, covered in news paper, slid the oven out of the unit, changed the element, all done in under an hour. If yours is under worktop then slide onto a piece of board on blocks.

We have a free standing Frigidaire flat top stove oven that is electric I decided to use the self cleaning feature on it and the bottom element burnt into My husband removed the bottom element before...

Hi Gina,
From what you are describing, it seems there was an "arc" from where the element itself was supposed to connected to the power in the bottom portion of the stove.
This may have caused the connector itself to burn, seal, or carbonize I.E. Blacken and not allow the element to properly connect to the internal workings.
The other possibility, because the broil is still working is that this particular model of a stove has multiple fuses for controlling the different elements in the oven portion.
You would need to consult the manual, likely available online via model number. The ranges themselves rarley change the electronics inside and if you cannot find the exact model number maybe a newer model 3 year newer would help.
The first thing to check is going to be the fuses themselves. If you have a multimeter available to check the current in the fuses.
If indeed it is the connectors where the element "clips" in to the base of the oven that has gone out, the work to replace it might be more tedious to accomplish.
If you find it is not the fuses, you can consult a repair guy, but likely, parts and labor will be more expensive than replacing the range itself.

The fan assisted oven is not heating up, but I can hear the fan as I usually would. The top section (grill) is working fine.What could be causing this ? thank you

Probably the element has failed. Change the element or get it changed.
Spares are available from most appliance repairers or ebay.

Toaster no longer heats. Can I purchase the heating element and install myself?

mcdevito75 here, Chances are the heating elements are soldered in on the toaster and may take special tools to fix, if the heating elements sre burned out, maybe better to get another toaster.

My microphone has no sound


Your gain adjustment should be increased in the microphone or maybe the outputlevel from your receiver. If both doesn't solve your problem, maybe the element has a problem. You could turn of the grill and you will find the solderingjoints, just tip it with your finger. If you hear some hum, your element has a problem.

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!
