Any trouble shooting tips. My heating element under the rollers is not working


The heating element may have burned out - do you know anyone who can test it?

It may possibly also have a thermal fuse inside - that's not something you can easily replace, but it's cheaper to have someone replace that then to have them replace the heating element.

Kenmore dryer not heating replaced element


You need to test the thermal overload, When elements go they can damage the overloads, You can do it easily with a multimeter and they are not expensive to replace. There may be one or 2 of them and can be found inline with the element wiring.

My coffee maker takes 20 minutes to brew a pot of coffee- extremely slow- I've lost the manual and do not know how to correct this...please help.


The first suggestion is de-calcify as the heating element is probably coated. The following should explain what I mean.

Most likely you have calcium flake deposits clogging the orifice/jet/valve, that restricts the flow of water until heated properly. As the water starts to flow the flakes collect and block the water flow. Periodic cleaning will cure this and prevent damage to the, orifices, jets,valves and heating elements of your machine ( as calcium builds up it tends to insulate the heating element thus requiring more energy/heat to complete the task). Eventually the heating element will over heat and burn out. Periodic cleaning extends the life of the machine plus the added bonus of a better tasting " Cup of JOE".
Most any cleaning preparation designated for a "Mr. Coffee " type machine will do the job. If you want a home remedy 3-4 tablespoons of white distilled vinegar per cup of water ( calculate for the size of your water reservoir ). But please do it outside on the patio, as the vinegar tends to be in competition with the air freshener, and will win.

The message reads decalcify/ventilate. When the knob is opened only a little water sprays out of the spout and then pump continues to make noise but no water emits.

HAVE DEHYDRATOR THAT DOES NOT HEAT ANYMORE


Take apart the bottom unit that contains the heating element. Hopefully it's put together with phillips screws. Mine are not. I'd have to drill out the brads that are holding it together. Once it's apart, use an Ohmmeter to check the heating element. Be sure to disconnect the fan from the heating element when ohmming out the element. If the element is open electrically, replace it. Good luck in finding a place to purchase a new element.

Heater element will not heat drum.


if it's turning and not heating, chances are that it could be a broken heating element or it's not getting the full power. before taking the dryer apart, go to the breaker box that supplies power to it and pull the breakers completely off and then on. if that doesn't work, you could have a bad breaker or a bad heating element. if one of the breakers seems kind of loose or wiggles easily it needs changing anyway.

The heating element is probably accessed through a removable panel on the back face of the dryer. The element looks not unlike the heating element in an electric oven, but smaller. After you remove the back panel, you may have to take apart the heating duct in which it resides, which can be tricky. Or you may be able to remove the bad heating element without removing and splitting the duct. Do you have a friend who is handy to help you?
