Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit, that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires replacement.
It is possible that your element has failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.

Why would check vent light go on after replacing sensor and computer


Is the dryer vent blocked with lint? If there is a restriction in air flow in the vent system, the dryer will stop. Make sure the vent path is completely clean even in the wall where the vent hose connects.

Cabrio model WGD6400SW gas dryer runs but not heating at all. have cleaned it.. still no heat. This happened the same day we had a service tech look at our cabrio washer. Have not had them for 3.5 yrs...


I agree. It's rotten to have someone check out your product and then have it stop working. You probably have a problem with your ignition panel.This is the part of gas dryers that gets hot. When it reaches a certain temperature it causes the pilot light to ignite. It sounds as if your ignition needs to be replaced. We did this and had another 6 years from our gas dryer.
If you're handy you can probably do this replacement yourself. If you're like my spouse and me, we found a reasonably priced professional who completed it in just a few minutes.
Good luck. I hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my help!

Dryer will not heating up. Only 5 years old


Two possible reasons:

1. The heating element or the temperature sensor is broken.
2. The exhaust vent is obstructed and needs to be cleaned.

Good luck.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

GE Dryer


Sounds like an intermittant break in the heat element. Could also be an irratic control thermostat or bad connection somewhere between the line and the heater. Simple to isolate with a tester.
