It is very common for elements to "catch fire" when they fail. It is really electical arching. But to answer your question you shouldnt be concerned if it ever happens to the bottom element immediatly kill the breaker it will stop instantly. dont use a fire extinguisher as it wont stop the arching. And most ovens do use the upper broil element for baking for very short intervals like 10secs on every minute or so to brown the top of product. Some models (especially older builder line ) do not

Typical H2O heater with 4500 watt elements should draw around 18 amps. Check to make sure the connections for the wires at the breaker are tight, loose connections will cause the breaker to heat up. If all of this is good and the breaker is still heating up, it is time for a new breaker.

Check inside the door panel next to the wiring schematic, you should find the diagnostic codes. Look up 7 blinks. This should narrow down the problem. ( It sounds like a bad hot surface ignitor).
Good luck.....

There is a fuse located over the heating element in front of the fan. It sits over a small slot above the heating element (probably to cause it to stop working by design). Yes I'm a pessimist. It can be bypassed if it is an emergency by wiring across it. I'm trying to find the replacement fuse now (10amp jet 250v #00575) If you find it please send info to warfalcon23@Gmail.com. I hope we all get our heaters working, for $250 + dollars you'd expect it to last longer than 1 month.

Replace thermostat in heating element on 120v single hot water heater in still no hot water i check for power it has 120 on each side the make is ge 19.9 120 volt # ge20p6sag


  • There should be a temperature fuse look like in much case on the picture and this fuse element is in serial with the power from switch to the heating-element sometimes its hidden in an electrical heat shrink sleeve.or anywhere but is build in its to find before one of the 2 leads before the heating element, the thermostat is only to switch on an max temperature but the safety fuse is made , when the thermostat become defect it has a safety max temp before it becomes defect if it the temperature rises above to fire dangerous if the thermostat dont stop. some times max 120 degrees and more or less to choose the max temp is on the fuse to read.
  • By replace this fuse its importand to place a pliers the flat nose on the lead and right near the fuse element on the lead-site that is having to be soldering so the heat by soldering cannot get in the fuse because it would direct defekt by soldering heat

The air is cold and dryer is turning


If it's electric, could be timer or heat level selector switch, a relay to heating element, the heating element itself bad or the overheat thermostatic switch has failed. How old is the dryer? A lightly used replacement may be less than the repair technition and parts.

I will assume that you have cleaned the lint trap and checked that there is no lint stuck in the lint trap cavity

First, check the dryer vent. Any blockage anywhere in the vent will stop air flow. A dryer needs air flow to dry. Check every bit of it, even where it goes outside.

if that isn't the problem, then check your electrical connections. Your electric dryer runs on 220 volts, but it's really two wires carrying the electricity to the dryer at 110 volts each. If one of those wires isn't connected, the dryer could still turn on and spin, but it won't dry the clothes.

I learned that the hard way going through 2 dryers. Turned out one of the fuses in my apartment's fuse box had blown, but 2 fuses made up the 220v circuit. The dryer would spin and would work a little bit on low settings, but any other setting it would just spin and not dry at all. Replacing the fuse fixed the issue. With a breaker box, the 220v double breaker is connected, so if one trips, they both trip, and it wouldn't spin or turn on at all.

So check the socket with a multimeter (or have an electrician check it) and unplug and check the dryer cord making sure each connector is securely screwed in to the panel on the back. There is typically an access panel on the back of the dryer right next to where the cord goes in that you have to take off to get to the connection panel.

The last thing I would say a DIYer could look at is the heating element. If you take the back off, you can access the heating element and see if there is any lint or debri in there... if there is, clean it out and try the dryer... if it still doesn't work but there was debri in the heating element's channel, it could have burnt up a safty sensor that shuts the heating element off when it senses too much heat (fire, or potential to cause a fire) I suggest using and appliance repair man at this point.

Turns on but wont get hot


Hi


The first thing to check is the fuses or breakers in your homes fuse box. If this fuse is blown, it is possible for your dryer to spin but not produce heat. If you've checked the fuses and they are not blown, the next possible cause is the heating element.
To check the heating element, move the back panel of the dryer. You'll need a volt/ohmmeter to check the element terminal. Locate the element and set the volt/ohmmeter on the RX-1 scale. Remove one lead from the element and then place one probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the terminal of the element. Place the other probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the remaining terminal of the element. Look for a continuity reading of the volt/ohmmeter of approximately 2-5 ohms. If there is no continuity reading, the heating element is defective and should be replaced.
Also clean the lint filter every time you use the dryer. Even if the lint filter is cleaned after every load, lint will still accumulate around the dryer's moving parts, the exhaust duct and vent. Each year inspect the vent pipe and vent cover operation. Disconnect the exhaust duct and remove lint from the internal exhaust pipe, the duct and the vent. Make sure the duct has no kinks, where lint and moisture can build-up.
Turn off the power; remove the front and rear panels and vacuum out the lint from around the motor and idler. Poor air flow uses more energy and can cause lint build-up in the internal ducting, leading to a fire hazard.

My dryer is working but there is no heat coming out


First place to look is to check if the "overheat" contact or the heater element has blown.

GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot


The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
