This is either a fuse ,relay or heater problem your best to call for a technician unless you can measure continuity between each of these with the power off .90 % of the time this is due to a build up of lint inside the dryer

Dryer will heat but seems to overheat and shut off.


If that is the style with the small heater in back up top the blower wheel is probably slipping.

GE( 2-door) ref portion door left open the whole night,it's not working now except the freezer. Tried unplugging it for 24 hrs, but still not working.


the air ducts could still have ice in them,remove the bottom kick panel,you should find a tech sheet either on the kick panel or taped in the cabinet area down there and it will tell you how to manually put your fridge into defrost, you don't want to work on it while it's running or you'll make it worse,you'll know it's in defrost when the compressor shuts down and the fan in the freezer stops blowing if you can't find it shut down the fridge or unplug it again,remove the food from the freezer,if you're handy remove the back inside wall of the freezer and with a hair dryer melt out any ice up in the vents and blow the air from the hair dryer up above the fan motor and in the corners, ,you'll see water dripping where the ice is,heat it up until no more water drips down,hit one side for a few minutes and then the other side for like 5 minutes at a time so you don't damage anything from heating it up to much,or if you have another fridge leave it unplugged for a couple of days.if you can't remove the wall blow the air into the air slots in the back wall panel,in the right and left side corners and then in the middle,have a light or flash light,you should be able to see water dripping down,keep blowing the air in until no more water is dripping,might take you like 30 to 45 minutes to do this,then turn it back on and see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge section,if not shut it down and heat it up again,if you see water dripping there's still ice in there,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air up nto the fridge section and the air returns to the freezer through the air ducts,when the door was open warm and cold air meet and forms ice in the air ducts,if the fan is working and depending on your model and next time you write send the model number you could have a damper it could of got damaged but it sounds like all you have is frozen air ducts

Kenmore series 80 heats and turns fine but stops after 30 minutes or so at any heat setting


Does it restart after it cools down? If so your motor may be overheating and shutting down.

Drys for a few minutes them shuts off Still hot


what shuts off the heat or the dryer?what kind of dryer and what's the model number?i can tell you that if it runs and the motor shuts down,after sitting for a while it will run again and do the same thing you most likely have a bad motor,there's an overload that pops if the motor is running to hot then when it cools down it resets itselfbut next time send the brand name and model number.

No heat in gas dryer, gas good, elec good??


if the heat is on when the dryer is cold then shuts down after 15 to 30 minutes and doesn't lite for a long while you have bad gas coils,the gas should come on until it hits temp. then it shuts down,when the dryer calls for heat it will turn back on,if it stays on for short periods of time you might need to clean out the dryer,this will shut the gas down to soon,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line,make sure the air is blowing outside with nothing blocking it and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

Gas Dryer Stops after 30 minutes.


Your problem is caused by a motor overheating causing its internal overload to shut it down until the motor cools. If you truly have thoroughly cleaned all interior areas of your dryer and the vent leading from the house to the outside there are only two possible problems that can give you this failure.
  1. The dryer motor bearing is failing (tightening) causing the motor to be harder to turn. This will force the motor to draw more current to keep it running and this generates more heat than usual. The additional heat opens the thermal safety on the motor until it cools down. Motor needs to be replaced
  2. The air holes at each end of the motor are clogged with lint that needs to be cleared out. The body of the motor may also be coated with lint. Both these conditions will cause the thermal overload in the motor to open until it cools. Motor needs to be fully vacuumed.
Good Luck.
