Hi i have a candy 580c condensing tumble dryer no heat when running checked element got continuity checked the stats one is closed ctt the other is open cct ?? any ideas please


CHECK THE THERMAL CUT OFF, THE HI-LO AND THE CYCLING THERMOSTATS BY THE WAY U ARE GETTING THE FULL 240 VOLTAGE, IN SOME UN ITS IF UR ONLY GETTING HALF THE VOLTAGE DUE TO BAD TERMINAL BLOCK OR HOME OUTLET? SOME MACHINES WILL USE 2 SPEED MOTORS IN OTHER WORDS IT USES 120 TO RUN THE MOTOR AND ANOTHER 120 TO RUN THE HEATING CYCLE THUS IF U ONLY GET 120 AT UR TERMINAL U MAY ONLY BE ABLE TO RUN THE MACHING BUT NO HEAT WILL BE GENERATED

I moved my Cabrio electric dryer to another room. A new outlet was installed in the new room. When first plugged in, the dryer runs and tumbles but will not generate heat. Suggestions?


Your electric dryer uses110vac to run the motor which makes the drum turn. It uses 220vac to run the heating elements. I'll assume you had a qualified electrician add the new outlet. If not, I'm betting whoever did the install used the same electrical phase for both 110 sides of the plug. You can't use an electrical tester to test this as both sides will read the same. Manually trip the breaker (should be a double breaker) and then check the outlet. The wiring to the hot leads should be black on one phase and red on the other. Let me know what you find out

Run the dryer for 2-5 minutes. Check to see if it has heat inside. If not, you have an internal problem.
If heat is generated, check your dryer lint trap. It must be clean before every dry cycle to dry properly and efficently. If the trap is clean and heat is generated, check the tubes behind the dryer for disposing of the lint.

Will not generate heat runs fine-it's only done about a 100 loads


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

No heat in the dryer! The dryer runs and air has free flow to the exit vent but still not heat being generated


check on rear of dryer, as many have a small reset button for heater.If this is fitted then gently oush it inwards and this should solve the problem

My dryer does not not produce enough heat when in operation. It seems like it is just running and generating very low heat. Please help.


Really sounds like an element is burnt out or a safety has malfuctioned. Possible loss of power so check plug, recept., and breaker. Look for burnt terminals and reset breaker even if it does not look tripped. Dryer usually have 2 elements. One for low heat and both for hi heat. May want to check this out. Please keep in mind that some repairs can cost more than buying a new dryer. I got one at Lowes for about $200 and it works great. I don't think you can get a repair guy out and to the repairs for that amount. Just depends on how many whistles, buzzers, and bells you want on your machine.

Good Luck.

Dryer runs but will not generate any heat...


If not generating any heat then element is probably burned out- close visual inspection will general reveal break in element coils

If some heat then probably on of the thermostats gone bad. Will power off test for continuity with meter--if no reading replace

Good luck

Dryer shuts off when releasing start button. Will run while pressing down start button, but no heat is generated. Sears repair man wanted to replace Even Heat Control Board for $350. I bought the part...


replace the motor, as you are holding in the start button you are making the dryer run in the start winding of the motor, it is designed to only stay in this winding untill the centrifigual switch on the motor automaticaily switches it to the run winding, when the motor switch knows that it is using the run winding it closes the motor switch contact for the heater to come on, replace the motor
