Sime ecomfort plus 30 HE keeps cutting out and shows a flashing green light. Sometimes it will run ok for a couple of hours before cutting out.


I had the identical problem with the same model. Technician eventually diagnosed faulty fan; the fan cools the heat exchanger. When fan fails, exchanger overheats and boiler automatically shuts down. It is possible to restart the boiler when it cools down but when the heat rises again - off it goes! Only answer is to replace the fan. My technician did the same as yours - on first visit he got the boiler running and left. Half hour later, boiler shut down. I read the installation manual and operating instructions and when he called again I pointed him in direction of fan, which had failed completely. These guys!

I have a Kenmore Dryer Mod#110 62722101. It will run about 10 minutes and shut off, after a cool down period it will restart but only run about 10 mins. Heats, fine, tumbles fine. A few days before this...


If it runs after a cool down period, then the high temperature limit is part of the cause. What is causing the high temperature limit to overheat is next.
Strong stream of air should be felt coming out the exhaust, make sure this exhaust air works or the burner part will overheat and cut out the flame/burner on hight temp safety.
With good exhaust air varified, the drying air operating temperature sensor needs to be checked, this cuts power to the burner. The sensor must open electricaly when satisified on temperature and should be properly mounted for proper sensing of temperature.
Bottom line: Check the hot air and its control

My electric Kenmore dryer model # 96591210 shuts off after approximately 15 minutes, and will not restart for at least an hour. If I try to restart it after it shuts off, it will make a humming noise, but...


The first things I would do would be to disconnect the dryer hose and make sure that it is not clogged, and that you have good air flow through to the outside. Then I would check to make sure that your lint trap is clean and able to pass air through it. If you use fabric softner dryer sheets make sure you do a water test on the screen to make sure that it is not blocked.

Then I would try it again. If the same problem occurs then there is a thermal cut off fuse in your unit http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Dryer-Parts/279769/0026/110/Model-11096591210/0582/0151200?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=0151200&searchModelNumber=11096591210&subCompDesc=Bulkhead%20parts&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=ELECTRIC-DRYER&blt=11

I replaced a bad 325 degree thermal cut-off on my kenmore dryer and 30 minutes it went out again. any suggestions?


Two cut off units will not be bad, and they should reset when cooled. Check your air flow. pull the hose off of the back of the machine, turn it on and form an opinion of the volume and force of the air flow.....Hook everything back up, turn on machine, go outside and verify VERY SIMILAR air volume and force.

If the air is restricted, the system will overheat and the limiters will trip.

Dryer will run for about 20 minutes then it cuts off.


Are you able to restart the Amana dryer right back up when it shuts down? If you can, there is a short issue. If you have to wait a few minutes and you might even hear a faint click, then it will start, your motor needs replaced.....If Ic an help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,
