Either Electric or Gas:

Remove exhaust hose and vacuum entire length squeaky clean or purchase new if that is too much trouble. Vacuum inside exhaust port on the back of the dryer as best you can and all other ports like the lint trap and port inside dryer where air flows to the trap before it exits out the exhaust port..

If that doesn't help, leave the exhaust hose off, turn the empty dryer on and check the airflow coming out of the exhaust port. It should be fairly robust & get very warm quickly. If it doesn't and you're Electric your heating element isn't working or almost worn out. Check manual for fuse rest, if available reset and test again. If no fuse the element is shot and needs to be replaced, a fairly easy DIY'er job, Remember, safety first UNPLUG 1st!

If gas, is gas line valve turned on, if yes the igniter is most likely shot and needs to be replaced and another moderate DIY'er project. Again ALWAYS safety 1st, UNPLUG and TURN THE GAS VALVE OFF before replacing. Repeat check and reinstall hose securely after repair.

Dryer low heat


It sounds like one of the heating elements has gone out. I've replaced the one in mine and it's not difficult. They just plug in like the ones in an oven. You'll be able to tell which one when you get inside if that's it.

HOW TO REDUCE CHANCES OF H4 CODE IN SHARP COPIERS


The code H4 is common to all Sharp copiers. This occurs due to abnormal low temperature being sensed by thermistor. This means that the heater lamp which generates heat around the fuser rollers is either not working or producing very low heat. Low heat generated comes from low power output in the mains so, when you suspect low voltage, always switch off your copier and wait for normalcy. You can see from dim bulbs and know that's low voltage.

LG Dryer low heat doesn't work


It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.
If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

Low heat


Dryers either heat or they don't heat. Complaints of "low heat" are always due to a restriction in the venting system.
There is either a clog in the hose somewhere or the hose is smashed. There could be an obstruction at the exit outside or the hose runs longer than 12 feet before exiting the house, to name a few.

Kennmore Elite HE4 no heat on low or extra-low setting


Assuming this is a gas dryer, it is likely the igniter has failed. The igniter plate has to heat up to glowing in order to heat up the thermocouple that turns on the gas valve.

Hi Sir my heatbgun is still starting but the problem is its air takes time to heat even if i turn its heat control to the max . What could be its problem?


Usually you should have heat very quickly. I can think of a few things that might cause low heat. One would be a low power level at the outlet. The other might be the heater element is just about worn out. And third is the power or heat selector switch is faulty.

I've seen the low heat from low power caused by too long extension cords as well as low power levels. Try plugging into a different outlet and directly and see if it heats up normally.

Unfortunately if it is a problem with the heater element or the switch unless you are under warranty you would have to buy a new unit. If you have warranty then you should contact the store you purchased or McCulloch about getting it replaced.

PRINTER LOW HEAT ERROR


Low heat means either the fuser is not heating up or it is not sensed properly. you can find a new fuser at www.precisionroller.com but the low voltage power supply could be bad as well.
