Frigidare Dryer Model Number leq1442es0

The dryer runs but will not heat. In a trouble shoot section it says there are two house fuses, if one is blown this could be the cause of the problem. I have been through the online documentation and also taken a part portions of dryer trying to find these fuses (just not seeing them) need help on location?

    I have a Frigidaire FEQ1442S which runs but with no heat. It is only a few years old. It had a habit of switching to cool down prior to the clothes being dry. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem w/my unit where the drum will turn but the heating unit does not come on. Then after a while the unit will just stop and the four-five green lights on the right side of the panel blinks.

    There are no fuses in it that I can tell either. I've looked everywhere as well.

    I just had a service tech out to do a diagnostic on the's the problem. The circuit panel in the dryer is bad and needs to be replaced. Cost of the panel is $140 and change. Labor to replace the circuit panel is $150. Overall cost of the change out of the panel...$307 and change with tax. This has been going on intermittantly for the past month or so on my dryer. If you stand there and hit the button a few times...sooner or later it will heat. I don't have the time to do that.

    This problem sounds more like a defect in the materials of the circuit board. I believe that this should be a recall situation.

    I agree, check to see that your receptacle is running 240 into the dryer first. More than likely it is the circuit panel on the dryer. I had a tech come out today to check the same thing on mine. Circuit panel costs about $140 w/labor to replace about $150. It sounds like there are a lot of people with the same problem. It's starting to sound like a recall problem if you ask me.

They are refering to the fuses in the breaker box of the house not the dryer, verify that you have 240 volts at the terninal block on the back of the dryer, you must have it there it is ac voltage.

if you do then you may have a heater, a thermastat, a safety limit a motor a timer a heating selector issue too many coulds to tell you right now need to be more specific if you have the proper voltage

Our dryer was running fine and now it wont turn on.

It could be the timer or a safety switch that keeps it from over heating.Sears used to sell a home owner repair manual.You can call Sears Parts Central or go to the web site and give them the model number and see if they have the manual. It is a pretty good easy to follow manual with a good trouble shooting section.

Dryer ran for hours and did not stop automatically, now runs but wont heat?

Good day,
If set to automatic and there is no heat it will run continually run without shutting off. You'll need to trouble shoot the heating problem.

A lot of the problems are due to limit fuses and limit thermostats located in the back. Beyond that you'll need to supply the model and whether its gas or electric.

No heat

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing while the thermal cut-off is located on the heater housing. If the dryer is electric, runs but doesn't heat, the thermal fuse is not the problem; otherwise the dryer will not run because the thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and cuts power to the motor when it fails. The problem could the heating element, high-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off, or cycling thermostat. These components can be found in the blower housing and the heater housing depending on the model of the dryer. Specify the model number of the dryer for a more specific advice.

No power of any kind

This is commonly caused by a blown Thermal Fuse. The fuse is a small white component mounted on the blower fan assembly. There should be two wires running to it. UNPLUG the dryer and disconnect the component wires before taking any resistance readings. You should read something close to 0 ohms with a multimeter if the fuse is good. If the fuse reads bad, you must replace it.

The location of your blower fan housing depends upon the MODEL NUMBER. Since you posted no model, the easiest way to determine where these components are is by the location of the dryer lint screen.

If the lint screen is on TOP of the dryer, all your heating circuits are BEHIND the dryer. Just remove the back panel to access. The blower fan housing will be located on the lower left hand side.

If the lint screen is in the DOOR of the dryer, the heating circuits are INSIDE the dryer cabinet under the drum. You will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door for access. If the dryer has a solid front with no lower panel, you must lift the dryer topand remove the entire front panel for access. The blower fan housing is on the left hand side of the cabinet under the drum.

The following link can give you some more guidance on dryer no power issues:

Refer to the section that explains the possible components for "Dryer Does Not Run At All". The Thermal Fuse is the most common cause, but there are other possibilities to consider.

Now...if the thermal fuse has blown, it usually blows for a reason. The most common cause is poorly installed, kinked or clogged exhaust vent ducting. I would strongly recommend you thoroughly inspect the ducting, air blower and cabinet interior before replacing any defective components. Otherwise, these same components will fail again.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do you replace the fuse when your dryer tumbles but does not heat? it is a front load frigidare affinity electric dryer model LEQ700SE0

The fuses or breaker is located in your homes fusebox. An electric dryer requires 240 volts and 2-30amp fuses, or 1-30amp breaker. Locate your fusebox and determine if you have fuses or breakers. If fuses, then I recommend changing both 30 amp fuses to eliminate any possibility of being wrong. If it uses a breaker,(If not labled, look for the number 30 on a breaker). Flip the breaker to the OFF position, then back to the ON position. Repeat this action if there are more than 1-30 amp breakers and your dryer still doesn't heat.
