If you're only getting low heat this implies one of the following:

- loose/corroded/damaged connector, or

- bad thermal limit switch/tstat
you will have to check out this possibilities by testing it from meter and continuity tester. Probably element only working on low heat. check filter and outlet . No heat or low heat is the third problem and probably the most common problem with dryers. The places to check for this problem on an electric dryer are: Power supply-Heater element-thermal fuse-heat select switch-timer contacts for heat circuit-high limit and control thermostats, and the motor run safety switch. These tests can be made with an ohm meter with the dryer unplugged. Or they can be made with a volt meter live. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Well i would change the themal fuses that help regulate the temp
there is a kit than can be bought it is LA-1053.includes three fuses
of you can just replace the hi-limt thermostat.
however i would suggest the LA-1053 and replace all at the same time.

there could also be a problem with your temp selector switch that part number is 53-0344.if you replace the switch i would still replace the thermal fuse kit.just to make sure all the parts are the same rating and new together.i hope this helps out.

My Chef Classic Wall mounted fan forced oven stopped working. Its grill section working. Fan and the light in the oven working well. Bot oven doesnot heat up. Please give a tip what is probably wrong?


The bake element has gone bad. They can visually look fine but still be bad. To check and replace that element you will unfortunately need to kill the power and remove it from the wall. Remove the back cover. Check for a low resistance (around 16 ohms) across the bake element. If the resistance is high the element is bad. Google the make and model for a replacement element.

Tumbles, low heat, but not drying clothes


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Magic Chef electric Dryer won't start


Do you have power going to the receptacle. You can first go to your house panel and look for the circuit breaker for the dryer (usually a 30 amp 2-pole brkr.). It could be tripped. So first, put your dryer in the off position. Next, go back to your circuit breaker in your house panel. Turn off the breaker, and then turn it back on. This should reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Then go back and try turning on your dryer. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me again. However, this would seem to be it. Good Luck to you!

Not Drying, getting heat both it takes about 3 cycles to dry a normal load.


Since Its heating, you should check the outlet hose and vent for obstructions. If that is clear check to see if air is blowing out of the dryer at the hose connection. If no air is blowing out, the fan blades on the dryer may be broken or just clogged up. You may have to remove the back cover and disassemble the lint trap and duct-work inside the dryer to clean thoroughly. You can go to this site www.appliancepartspros.com type in your model number and they will have schematic diagrams to help aid in doing this.

My magic chef dryer heats but will not blow air


A dryer fan is usually directly connected to the motor. If you hear the motor running, maybe the fan broke off, or the duct is really clogged.
