Question about Dryers
Frigidaire MN FSE446RHS2 electric dryer
Recently opened up everything and greased the back of the drum to solve a grinding noise. While in there, vacuumed out all stray lint from fan, duct work, nooks & crannies. Replaced duct from dryer to wall, about 12 inches. Hooked everything back and the noise was gone and had good air flow outside. A few loads later, noticed clothes would not get completely dry on medium setting. Switching to high setting noticed rear getting very hot and would even give clothes a burned smell. What things can I check?
Dryers overheating is usually caused by a venting problem, but it sounds like you have the bases covered on that. I would look at a faulty high limit thermostat. It can be checked with an ohm meter to see if it is faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.
