Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?

I'd like to replace an old bathroom fan with one that has a nightlight in it. But, I'm guessing that the wiring for the fan only will not operate both the fan and a light, unless there is such a thing as a high tech switch that can operate both with basic wiring. Am I right?

wiring troubles 4 wires 2 white 1 blue and 1 black

    If I have a blue and a black with 2 white wires at the fan/light can I assume that the blue and black are hots and the whites are simply the neuterals.



    If the power supply is at the switches supplied by ( 2 wire conductors black, white and copper ground) in order to have seperate control of my fan and light could I not attach the wires in the folowing maner.



    Using 3 wire between the switches and fan/light combo

    Switch one and two connected to the power black pigtailed together. The white neutral from supply to the two whites at the fan /light connected together. From the fan the black wire to switch one and the blue to red to switch two.

Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).

something it shorted or gone bad; get a service person if you do not know how to fix it. That fuse keeps your house from burning up.

Why does the dryer overheat?


First guess is not enough airflow -- See how much air is blowing out the exhaust vent. If it seems weak, first make sure there is no excess lint in the exhaust path (check inside the dryer as well as the exhaust hose). If there still isn't enough air moving, the blower fan is likely loose on its shaft. If the dryer is overheating and you have very strong airflow, then the temperature detectors in the exhaust path are probably not ever telling the heating element it's warm enough. Check for loose wires, or you might have to replace the detector.

I have a Frigidaire gallery series dryer.(GEOQ2152ESO). It will spin but will not heat. I suspect blown house fuses in dryer circuit. How do I access and replace fuses ?


the dryer circuit will be clearly labelled in the house box, there will be two fuses or a single two phase breaker for this circuit.
there are not usually electrical fuses as such IN a dryer, there are thermostats to regulate temperature, and a thermal fuse, that cuts the power totally to the heat element if air temperature rises above its melt point.
the element itself has a limited life span and may fuse/burnout.
to test electrical components.
Unplug dryer
open case, by removing the front,
described elsewhere in any of the 'changing belt' threads
locate the thermal cutouts, on the fan housing or exhaust duct and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire
3aca526.jpg5d18df6.jpg thermal cuttouts look like these ~1inch accross.
locate the heat element and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire

while you have the dryer open de-lint the fan and exhaust ducting, most common cause of element or themal fuse failure is air flow restriction
7713ef8.jpgce0732c.jpg you get a lot of lint out of the fan even when proper cleaning is done, and clean out the ducting right to the exterior walls
95b69b0.jpgthis was the rather extreme result of not cleaning the duct (brainiac placed a wire across the terminals of the burnt out thermal fuse)

My tumble dryer works ok but theres no heat been told i need a new thermostat but cant find one with my model number


Non-Specific answer - no dryer model given
The thermostat is likely not at fault,
there is on the exhaust duct of most dryers a thermal protector, thermal cutout, thermal fuse (and a half dozen other names for the same thing)
If the air temperature becomes too hot due to blocked exhaust ducts, lint in the fan, lint screen not emptied or someone opened the door in the middle of the cycle then closed it again. the device fails to protect the much more expensive heater coil and thermostat.
Trace the exhaust duct from the fan housing for a device that looks like this 07b92b9.jpg or this fd3277a.jpg with wires to the terminals.
Test with an ohmmeter or bulb and battery, conducts ok no conduct replace.
take the dud one to the local parts store,
there are very few thermal cutouts, common to many dryers, they will be in stock. and cost very little.
While the dryer is apart, is a good time to clear lint from exhaust hood, ducting, fan, fan housing, to prevent recurrence

Replacing Heater Element in Roper Dryer


before you replace the heater most common cause of heating failure is burn out of the thermal cut-out. (also called thermal fuse, overtemp cutout and probably half a dozen other names) These are a small screw on device on the exhaust duct, when exhaust air reaches too high a temperature, like a blockage, they fail before a fire.
examin the exhaust duct inside the dryer for devices that look like this 641e982.jpg or like this dd7fd44.jpg with wires connected to the terminals. there may be 2(hi lo), test with a ohmmeter -conductivity good, no conductivity replace.
there are only a few different kinds the local parts guy will have them all. take the dud one for him to match.
