If you look at the connectors the wires that connect to the heater are larger and the wire is thicker,it doesn't matter what wire goes where on them,also the heater wires should be red and the other is red with a white stripe and like i said it doesn't matter what post on the heating element the wire with the stripe or the solid red wire connects to.the same with the thermostat

No Heat? Everything else works


Dear Judi,
Using an electric meter, begin checking the various thermostats and the fuse for continuity.
Also, check the heater coils.
In all cases, remove the wires from the part before checking it, and be certain to remember from whence you took teach wire.
You should find one of the the thermostats, or the fuse, or the heating element is "open" and needs replacement.
God bless your effort.

I have a Goodman a/c, furnace outdoor combo unit the the fan won't come on for the furnace. When I set the thermostat to heat, I can see the two heating coils come on, then glow bright orange for about 20...


To me it sounds like you need a fan limit switch to sense temperature increase and turn your fan on. At least you know that everything else is working. With out a schematic I can not tell you what type of limit this would be but I would look for a sensor either mounted right above the coils or beside them.
Have you looked on the inside of cover plate for heating and blower compartments.Often times they will put a wiring diagram there. Wished I could be of more help. Thank you

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. 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 one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape and running the dryer to check to see if the element is red or not,
or with an ohm meter check the two terminals of the thermostat/thermister
after you have removed the wires, the thermostat/thermistor should have/show continuity across the terminals.
If the coil heats up, or the thermostat/thermistor shows an open circut
then replace the thermostat/thermistor as it is defective.
If it overheats the dryer will not operate properly.
It's located on the blower housing.
It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
You can test it with an Ohm meter/continuity checker, if no continuity,
replace it)
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.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Check for power to the unit. If power exists, check your low voltage. Do you have 24volts to R & C at your thermostat?

Our dryer will not not heat up to its full heating potential anymore.


Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
You should also check the thermostats/thermistor, you can remove the wires from them one at a time and tape them together using electrical tape, then check the heat. If it heats properly, replace the thermostats/thermistor that is faulty.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER YOUR TEST! This could cause a fire
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.
Good Luck,
Hope this help

MY HEAT PUMP SYSTEM WILL NOT WORK IN EMERGENCY MODE


the thermostat sub base has a place to connect a wire usually white to energize the heat strips when you push the stat way hotter than the house temp. that is why the strips come on in normal heat. it also has a terminal that is only energized in emergency heat and it also should have a wire connected to it so that terminal can supply power to the strips when the stat is switched into emerg heat . you can identify the terminal from the wiring diagram and if need be jumper w2 wire over to the aux terminal and it will work. they both go back into the airhandler and power the same strips. w2..................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips or w2...jumper to aux......................................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips.
