Hotpoint TDC 30 not getting hot

Having 5 mins to check it I tested that power was going through the thermostats so thought must be the heater ordered one quick and fitted it and still the same when I test it with a meter there is power going to it?

Fan is spinning and makes no difference if set to low or high just will not heat.

You need to check ALL your thermostats. There are typically three to four on most dryers and they should be 2ohms or less. Make sure there are no clogs in the vent, this is most of all heating problems.

2000s-10 4.3l temperature control how to make it push warm air when you select warm air only pushes cool air

First let your vehicle warm up to operating temp. At idle usually takes about 30 mins or take a drive for about 5 to 10 mins. With caution check your heater hoses. Should be 2 hoses going into your fire wall. Be careful cause they might be hot. Make sure both hoses are hot by gently touching the hoses. If not thermostat by be stuck open or closed. If they are hot to touch then could be your blend door not opening from your heater core. Now if one hoses is hot and one is cold your heater core could be plugged up. Hope this helps

Water only stays hot for about 5 min or

Gas or electric?
Electric water heater ... then test for crossover, check for water leak, replace thermostats, test elements
Gas water heater ... test for crossover, check for water leak

water leak: turn off all taps and put ear against pipe and listen for water leak... check if water meter advances when all water taps are off.

We have installed a Lowboy L56 50 DOLS 1026T449635. The breaker is new and is a 30 amp. The wire is 10 gauge. The wires aren't crossed and each shows 120 volts when tested. The panel shows 120 on each...

Question: Do Low boy heaters, have a heater at the bottom, AND at the top?--- and are BOTH of the heaters working, on the 'either/or thermostat?
(By 'either/or'-- I mean, that it first turns the top element on, and when it is satisfied, THEN it turns the bottom on, until the whole tank is heated..) -- I would say this is an advantage of the taller tanks...

The taller tanks stratify VERY WELL--- (And the incoming cold water stays right at the bottom, and you take the HOT water off the top-- until suddnely it all goes to COLD.

I am wondering if the Low boy heaters might MIX more thatn the tall ones,-- thus going to WARM water sooner--- due to poor stratification.
Could you test that out, and try to folow the cold water line up the tank, as the Hot water is drawn off?

Another thought:
The Cold Fill tube, does go all the way DOWN to the bottom of the tank, right?--
And does it gently let the cold water flow across the bottom, and not 'rotatee the waer in the tank, as it replaces the hot water being used?
Otherwise the cold water will mix very early-- and give this same problem...
(I have heard of those center tubes falling off in shipment...
Did you by any chance check that, when you installed it?)

A final thought: What if the water draw was extremely fast?-- (Like if the water pressure is exceptionally HIGH--) might that upset the stratification, and cause the same problem, too?

If the hot water is drawn more slowly, can the customer get 30 or 4 gallons of HOT water, before it all goes cold?

Water may stay hot for 5 minutes then gets cold. water heater often blows breaker or pop out switch.

I suggest taking 30 minutes and testing water heater parts.
Right away we know 2 things:
-Electricity to heater is good.
-Upper element is receiving power because you have some hot water. If upper element was burned out, you would have no hot water.

That leaves 5 suspects:
Upper thermostat.
Lower thermostat.
Loose or shorted wire.
Upper element shorted to ground near center of element.
Lower element shorted or damaged in some manner.

Buy $10 milti-meter from Home Center or hardware
When test calls for testing voltage, rotate multimeter dial to 240-250-277 VAC.
When test calls for testing elements or continuity, rotate multimeter dial to Ohms.
Take 30 minutes and go down page.
Test will identify problem(s) and show how to fix it yourself.

No hot water. Circuit breaker not the problem. Which plate do I open to check the eco?

Remove access panels on water heater's side the top thermostat has a red reset button on it.
Press reset button and it will take about 30 mins or more to get hot water. If you have a meter or test light check wires to elements for power.

This would be the first thing to check on the water heater.

Does your temp gauge read normal? if it does then the thremostat is ok,but sadly the water pump is going bad this is typical of jeeps at an idle the heater cools off because the water pump fins are worn enough to not circulate through the heater core and when you step on the gas the increased rpm move the water fast enough to circulate through the heater,it is possible that the heater core is plugged but I doubt it as a plugged heater core would not get hot either it would be cold or just luke warm all the time.

Hotpoint condencer dryer TDC62

Several reasons for it not to heat.
Obviously faulty heater, and or thermostat(s). You need meter to test. Heater and stats are located at the rear of the m/c behind a removable panel.
Faulty programmer, faulty heater relay.
Check filters etc, refer to instructions for this.
Plz leave feed back on this .

TDC 30 Dryer starts but after 5 mins "clicks and stops"

its probably the relay (brown plastic box at the front under lid)! Symptoms are usually.... the dryer will go for a few minutes then shut down.... then you have to wait for it to start
