Is it gas or electric ? if it's gas, good be a ignitor, flame sensor, etc. if electric...check your breaker. is this a new home, new wiring, just moved in ? don't just visually inspect the breaker either, I mean physically turn the breaker (it should be 30amp) "off" and then back "on". breakers can partially trip, which will still supply the unit with 120v hence allowing the drum to turn, but the heater cannot come on.

NOTE; keep in mind if the breaker is tripped, have the unit inspected, it's a symptom to another problem.

good luck

Why my A/C condenser fan won t stop running, dodge ram 2008


To clarify, the compressor and fan will run in defrost mode. The compressor and fan runs to dry out the air blowing onto the windshield.
Now if the condenser fan runs in "heat" you may have a problem with the fan relay or the main controller.

2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer

Samsung dv218eb dryer runs but won't heat


No heat almost always means a heating element. But if you ar talking low heat, then check the lint filter; exhaust pipe for clogges and that the fan is circulating the heat up to the drum.

Dryer timer won't shut off at end of cycle. Dryer runs, but no heat. It is a Whirlpool model number LGR4634JQ2.


Since you say that the dryer runs but have no heat, plus the timer won't shut off the odds are the timer is bad. The timer would tell the burner when to be on and when to shut down.

Car runs fine till it is turned off


two things come to mind....
1- a electrical component may be heat sensitive and not function after turn off heat soak
2- your fuel pump check valve isn't holding fuel pressure in the fuel loop 
Next time check for spark...if thers's spark it's a fuel problem
