Question about Dryers
Not heating is really a common accurance.
The first thing to check is your voltage.
Make sure you dont have a kicked breaker
as this will cause the dryer to run but
not heat. Check the cord for burns or
broken wires, then check the terminal block.
next I would check the heating element. This
can be checked with any multitester. Simply
remove one of the wires from the heating
element and read accross the heater for
continuity. Then check to see if the heater
is reading continuity to ground. If the
heater is good then move on to the thermostats.
remove one wire from the thermostat and then
check for continuity. If you find one that is
not getting continuity then you have found the
problem. If you have not found the problem by
this point is is usually best to call for service.
Misdianosis can get expensive so dont just run
out and buy that $130.00 timer unless you know
its bad. Good luck and I really hope this helps.
