Mt Moffat clothes dryer keeps blowing thier own fusses


You have heat sensors on the Heating Element. If one allows the heat to get to high it can trip the Breaker. It more than likely is a bad Circuit Breaker in the Breaker Box. These can go bad. It is a Double switch, one is for the heat, one is for the Motor.

Electric dryer runs for 10 minutes aand kicks out the breaker


You probably have a breaker that cannot take the draw of the dryer. See if a slow blow breaker is available.

My Maytag Bravo Steam Dryer runs for about 5 minutes and gets hot and then kicks the breaker in the breaker box. HELP!!


Hello there:
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:It could be also wired backwardes so make sure to have this checked'

If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician. If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box.

My neptune electric dryer keep blowing the breaker after ten min


If the dryer is running then blows the breaker , then it is not in the electric circuit, There is a fault in the dryer itself. If it blows the circuit at the same place in the cycle each time then there could be some fault in the heating coil or in the timer circuitry.

Dryer gets really hot, blows circuit breaker, vent is clean and clear, circuit breaker replaced, seems to be something that controls the heat isnt working..


Howdy: In back of the dryer is a thermostat (inside) that lint hangs to. If it reads too hot it should stop heating. If not working then blows breaker. Inspect please, we do not want a electric fire. Good luck - Doug

2year old ge dryer trips breaker when it's turned on, but sometimes will run a complete cycle before it shuts off.


HELLO THERE
Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires. Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer, motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine, and yet another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power cord.
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the dryer.
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.

OK I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Blowing breaker


hi. I can help you.

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:


  • If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Duet blowing breaker


the heating element is probably broken and shorting out, causing no heat and blowing the breaker. if you are mechanically/electrically inclined then take off the top and take a look, it should be obvious. if not, then you need to have a proffessional look at it.
