ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.

Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back of the machine and try to
locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find
the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor. Once you have located the heating coil, remove
the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it
is faulty. If the heating coil is ok, then: You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing
the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape. If the coil heats up then replace
the thermostat/thermistor. DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause
a fire, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine. I will include these two web
sites for parts and further help:

Good Luck, Hope this helps

Why contactor on heat pump will not energize heat mode?


Heat pump and AC are basically working the same principle. When you turn on the heat pump is just like to turn on the AC. The main contactor will energize to turn on the compressor. The only difference is the 3 way valve, either switching to AC mode or heat mode. It is the most commom problem for heat pump. Check the thermostat wires for heat mode and defrost control.

No heat turned on but no heat coming out


Try turning on the heat and see if heat comes out? If you turn on the heat and cold air blows you may have a bad heater core. More than likely a repair shop would need to fix it.

Hi, If I turn my 2010 GMC Terrain on , the heat


The heat shouldn't have anything to do with your car turning off and on. If there is a knocking while the heat is on then you probably have a heater motor going out in you.

Furnace switches to auxiliary heat while in cool


It's likely a bad tstat. Turn the power off to your air handler. Remove red , green, yellow and orange wires inside the tstat and wire nut them together. Not sure if your reversing valve energizes in heating or cooling but, turn the power back on. If the unit is heating turn the power off and remove just the orange wire and turn power back on. Let this run and see if it you are ONLY getting cool air ALL the time. If so you have a bad stat. If still getting heat possibly you have a bad control board in the air handler. Good Luck!!

What does the "auxillary heat"


Auxiliary Heat is used to turn the electric heat strips ON, If the heat pump is not working. Or if the heat pump can't bring the space temperature up to Set Temperature it will display Aux Heat ON....... Assuming you have a Heat Pump System with Auxiliary Electric Heat as Back up...... If the tech didn't install a jumper wire from AUX to W on the subase which is in back of the Display on the Thermostat.....you won't get Auxiliary Heat if the Thermostat is set for Auxiliary Heat. Other wise the thermostat will turn the heat pump on first and then the electric heat (Aux Heat) if it needs it to satisfy the set temperature....... Hope this helps

Central air and heat unit heat turns on for 1min and then heat turns on aux. heat


All aux. heat comes on when the thermostat calls for more than 2 degrees of the ambient temperature. Once the 2 degree gap is closed, aux. heat drops out of the circuit.
Some installers wire the thermostat to activate aux. heat every time heat is called for.In this wiring configuration the aux. heat stays on.

Rheem heat pump. blower will not turn off


The fans are set to delay for 60-90 seconds to remove all heat from the heat exchanger/heater elements.

If the fan runs any longer than 3-4 minutes after the Emergency Heat shuts off, you may have a bad sequencing relay in the air handler.
