Probably the heating coil has failed.
It is a simple, plug-in replacement.
To locate it, unplug the main power cord then remove the lower back panel. The heating coil is located in the air intake path and secured by 2 screws. Remove the 2 screws, remove the 2 power wires. Take it to the local appliance repair parts shop and get a replacement. Should be up and running for under 35 dollars.

I have a Garland Mater 200 electric oven and the fan continues to run even with the door open. Is there a switch / sensor that controls that?


https://www.manualslib.com/manual/55869/Garland-200.html?page=103#manual
This web site had a manual that may answer you question. It seems that here is a heat/cool switch. The cool switch is designed to function to cool the oven down by running the fan with the door open. If you close the door, it will heat so the door has to stay open.

My Whirlpool duet sport dryer got hot and shut off after running 20 minutes.


Sounds like you may have a bad heating element that has grounded. You should have this looked at to make sure if you aren ot handy to open the dryer up and inspect the heating element your self. make sure the element wire has not broken and fused itself to metal inside the dryer heater housing.

Why is my frigidaire dryer quitting after running a few minutes. It runs fine on the no heat so the motor is alright.


Not neccessarily the cool cycle uses less power and pressure from the motor, the winedings on motor may be bad or going out? does it shut down after 20-30 minutes of running? u may also want to check ur venting and ur thermostats the cycling and the thermal cut off, if ur having an over heating problem they can and will shut off the cycle as a safety precaution

NO HEAT WHEN CLOTHES ARE ADDED


Check to see if vent hose is not restricted. If it goes up inside wall, it could have lint clogging it. Most dryers regulate heat with air flow. Wet clothes can restrict flow even more if vent is clogged or pinched. Air flow is crucial to heat cycle. If the vent is resrticted, heat will rise quickly, but not cool down fast enough to allow heat thermostat to cool down and turn on heating element again. It may seem hot inside dryer but if no air flow it will increase dry time or not dry them at all before timer shuts off. If vent goes up inside wall, buy a small chimney brush and try cleaning out vent from attic if you can.

Dryer continues to run.


barnardfl
look for a cool down thermostat on the fan body. this thermostat opens on cool, and is in the motor circuit, not the heater circuit as the other thermostats are. After the timer switches off the heater and motor, this thermostat keeps the motor running until the temperature drops below ~45C, drawing unheated air through the dryer. when they fail they weld closed and do not switch off

If knob does not move, there is likely a stripped nylon gear in the stepper motor for the timer
timer motors cost $~14 if available in your area, and attach to the timer body by two screws
rebuilt timers can be purchased at many parts stores, labelled as almost anybrand as many are interchangeable $~40
new timers are around $~60
