Stop heating and lights won't turn on



ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
overheating.

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

OR you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run , the heater should not heat in order not to create fire but if the motor is not running, and the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum 9 this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

When the air condition reaches the set temperature to cut off the blower motor keeps running and i have the thermostat set to auto on the settings.


check the operators manual but you will probably find that the fan will keep running so that the air in the room is circulated past the thermostat so that the temperature can be monitored and the compressor switched on when the temp reaches the upper limit

I have a Magin Chef Mini-Fredge model MCBR360S. The motor doesn't run at all. The thermostat is set as high as it can go. I need help diagnosing the problem.


Try setting it to the lowest temperature. Listen for a click when you do this, Be sure you have power and the lights come on inside.

The freezer is not getting cold. Recently, I replaced the fan motor and it is running and blowing good. I turned the temperature alarm setting to the off position because it will sound due to the warm...


I would replace the defrost termination thermostat. They were a frequent failure item on
Frigidaire units I service, causing this condition. Around 8 to 20 dollars depending on
vendor. Also check the defrost timer as I have found at least one that was stuck due to
mis assembly. (the replacements are from a different vendor). Hope this helps.

Control lights ( temperature readings etc ) are consistently blinking on and off, accompanied with a beeping sound


Main control board is over
temperature. Look for blocked condenser air flow or inoperative condenser fan motor.
Refrigerator over 48°F or
freezer over 15°F for 3 hours.
Run diagnostics and test operation of all components.
Both thermistors failed.
Run diagnostics and test thermistors and thermistor leads.
No feedback from evaporator fan
motor. Run diagnostics and test fan motor and/or wiring. The manual is HERE

Both inside and outside units did not come on in cool mode


hi there,
thermostat located on your evaporator is adevice where in if temperature set up is acquired the power source will cut off until on specific time that when small heat absorbed thermostat will activate again or this auto activated.meaning there is a differtianl temperature acquited to run this device.this depent how you set up your temperature setting.the over load protection device located mostly on control panel is one tripping off.this is the device you have to reset in order to run the unit again if malfunction., if short circuited or highr current occured on compressor this device protect your motor to burn it will trip off your unit.several factors you can consider in tripping unit,fan motor not running,dirty evaporator and condenser,loosen wiring connection and faulty wiring.sometimes circuit on panel board are envaded by insect mostly ants they need heat for there egg to hatch, they davastated the circuit.check on this.have a nice day don't forgert to rate me thank's.
