Question about Frigidaire GLER642A Electric Dryer
It smells like it's going to catch on fire - I was told to try to replace the belt - will that help? How do you put it on?
First check you vent system it must be four inches all the way to the end not a lot of hose behind it just enough to reach the outside vent housing im going to give you the procedure for the belt but consult your owners manuel for proper venting as this will make the drier to hot if not vented prioperly unplug the drier pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .once you get in there see if the drier is full of lint
