Question about Dryers
Looking for help introubleshooting no heating problem. I am not electrician but can follow directions or follow simple wiring diagram.
There are unresetable thermo controllers in diagragm. Could that be problem or do I go straight for the heating element.
Can you help?
The best way to go about this is to check each peice first. In order to do this you will need a ohm meter. If you dont have one, you can get one pretty cheap. If you have one, set the meter for ohms (continuity) and remove the wires for each part that you test. Put the leads on each peice, and see if your needle moves. If it moves, the part is ok. Repalce as needed. Only other way is to remove the element, and inspect it carefully. You should see a broke part or wire MAYBE. There is no way of checking the thermal cutoff with a ohm meter. Good luck and let me know if you need further help.
