Yes, unhook the vent to the back run the dryer if it heats better then either replace the venting or clean it out... hint use a leaf blower to blow that line out....... lint blockage or cloggage in the vent will reduce dryin times and yes possibly start fire... when it is on go outside to wear it vents and see or feel if it is blowin outside... hope this helps

Frigidaire microwave model ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep.

Hopefully no one sprayed a liquid cleaner directly onto or near the keypad...

From page 23 of the owner's manual:

"Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe completely dry."

"Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not let water seep into any vents or openings."

If there is moisture damage, it may dry out by itself if you leave it overnight with the door open. If not, the warranty would be voided and you'd have to arrange for out of warranty service.

If there is no moisture damage, and it failed not due to outside forces, then you should contact the manufacturer to arrange warranty service.

What does error code E65 mean on dryer.. does not dry clothes well

Hello Becky;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

E65 = High limit thermostat trip count too high.

In other words, you probably have a restricted air flow problem. Your blower will shut down if your plugged up with lint.

In the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. At the bottom of the manifold is a small round connection. This is generally where the dyer air flow is blocked. There are only a few screws holding it on. Un plug your unit, remove the hot air distribution manifold, Clean the manifold and around the blower wheel. Turn the wheel by hand to ensure it is not stuck and free.

If this is not the problem, get back to me and we will talk about the high temperature thermostat.

My f&p Frigidaire keeps clicking every 10-15

If it is clecking it will need to be tested. Feel the top of the compressor to see how hot. Can you keep hand on top of compressor? Too hot to keep hand there? What is the model number of your refrigerator? Thanks Sea Breeze

From the unit itself you'll need to check your owner's manual and select warm or hot water temps. You also can turn the water temp up from the hot water heater in your home.

My Frigidaire dryer makes a loud humming noise and the top and back get very hot to the touch.

Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

Frigidaire dishwasher will not dry the dishes. Even on heated dry they come out soaking wet0 hot, but wet.

Sorry, but I must start at the beginning. Is the "heat dry" switch on. If so is the unit a 220 volt or a 110 volt? You can tell by the plug end, if it plugs into a regular outlet type than it'a a 110 volt . If it has a special plug outlet (large black or large gray) then it'a 220 volt.If it is indeed a 220 volt go to the main house electrical box and try to locate the dishwasher breakers. swithch it, or them off and on. Then try your unit again. If it's a 110 volt then you've got internal control malfunctions of some sort. I'm not a Frigidaire certified techy, But I'm sure if you hop on the phone to the service dept. someone will hand you a solution in seconds after you descibe "exactly" what is going wrong.Thank You ,very much, Dana
