Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    I have to much heat not no heat. I have replaced the high temp cycling theromostat, but now one of the 2 Heat relay and contactor assemblys attached on the right upper rear inside of the dryer is arcing and buzzing. Also the automatic overheat thermo cut off never trips

    when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and as you have already replaced the cycling thermostat then just try to clear the lint. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    Do you have specific knowledge of the Asko T701 dryer or is this just a generalized computer driven response system?. You have not addresed my specific problems ie.Heat relay and contactor assembly attached on the right upper rear inside of the dryer is arcing and buzzing. Also the automatic overheat thermo cut off never trips.

    Thanks for the model no#, if you have already checked the heater assembly then it seems to be a temp. sensor issue. The heating element is really hard to get to - you have to remove the entire back cover (all screws) and maybe the top 3 screws and clean dryer. And yes this is not a computer generated response.

  • kschwepler May 15, 2010

    Okay. Can you tell me why the Heat relay and contactor assembly attached on the right upper rear inside of the dryer is arcing and buzzing (there are 2 and only one of them is arcing and buzzing) Are they defective and need to be replaced?

    Check the wire harness to the heat relay if that seems to be fine then you have to replace the Heat relay and contactor assembly

Electric dryer..have heat on auto heat cycle, but no heat on timed cycle why?


If you have normal heat on Auto cycle, I have seen a few times that these new dryers channel the heat circuit separately through the timer for auto and timed cycle's. This isn't normal but you have a bad timer. But for any other readers this isn't a common problem generally the timer use's the same heat contact for auto and timed cycles, this is the exception.

Frigidaire electric dryer error code AD


Hello - Typically error code AD indicates that the Auto Dry option has been selected. Using no heat in any Auto Dry cycle will result in long drying times and/or wet loads at the end of cycle. I would suggest selecting other option or resetting the unit. You may either unplug it or flip the household breaker off for approximately two minutes. Restart unit, select a normal cycle and verify if it will heat. If the dryer does not heat the unit it could possibly have a faulty heating element, blower assembly or a communication problem with the control panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

How do I connect my Jandy AE-TI heat pump to my intermatic T104P3


1) Copy following link for wiring illustration ... assuming timer is supposed to control pool pump:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T104-to-contactor.jpg

2) T104P is 240Volt (208-277V) SPDT timer in P plastic outdoor enclosure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

3) Jandy AE-TI is 208/230V pool heater.
http://www.bestbuypoolsupply.com/media/aemanual.pdf

4) Page 13 of Jandy manual shows single-phase residential wiring diagram.

5) First of all, power to main contactor is not interruped by timer, since this powers 24Volt transformer that controls the chip board and general operation.

6) The timer is connected to 'Auto-heat contactor.'
The confusion is what Load connects to this contactor? The water pump? Load is shown on diagram as 'pump time clock.'
I assume the load is the PUMP??

I have a roper electric dryer model # rex3514pqu. The dryer doesn't heat at all and the timer will not move, it stays where I set it. What could cause this problem?


If you have a TIMED cycle,the timer should advance heat or not. In the AUTO dry cycle the timer will not advance without heat. Unplug the dryer. Remove the rear panel of the dryer and check the heat element, relays and thermostats with a volt meter set for ohms. No reading indicates a bad part. Remember to remove at least one wire from each component before testing.

Dryer runs 15 min. or so then motor starts to vibrate and then it dies push to start right away and it just buzzes but let it cool and it starts again. also the timer won't advance in auto


Hi,

Another one ! I just had one of these today in my real live service calls. What you are describing is almost certainly a broken blower wheel assy. With the blower broken the auto cycle won`t advance and the unit can`t exhaust the heat and moisture sufficiently and consequently overheats and shuts down, hence the motor buzzing when you attempt to restart the dryer. Pull it apart if you can and inspect the blower wheel. Its at the front of the unit attached to the motor shaft.

Hope that explains something, or helps move you forward. Let me know.

Good Luck,

macmarkus :)

Intermittent operation


This sounds very simple. If the dryer vent hose is partially blocked, the unit will overheat and shut down on thermal lockout. This is an auto reset limit switch. After the unit cools down, it will reset on it's own. This will be very intermittent. Clean the vent real good and be sure to clean the vent inside the unit as well. Then retry.

No Heat from Spa


Tcarrigan,

Heater contactors "buzzing": Do you mean normal buzzing or extra loud buzzing? Loud buzzing or chattering can be caused by low voltage to a contactor. If normal sounds, then probably the relays on the contactors is working, but the contacts may be stuck, or burned enough so as not to make contact. First, get a voltmeter and check for 240 volts AC at the heater contactor terminals. If the voltage is low, most likely you need to check the contactors further. Check for dirty contacts, clean if needed. If the contacts are not moving when energized, then you will probably need to replace one or both of the contactors.

Hoover hdv fm tumble dryer


only thing may make a buzzing sound is a relay not making up or a motor contactor not closing all the way.
