SOURCE: heating element continuity?

Unplug the dryer from the wall. There are 2 wires connecting power at the heating element. Take one of these wires off, doesn't matter which one, but take at least one of the 2 off. Then put your meter probes across the terminal of the heating element where you took the 1 wire off and the other terminal of the heating element that still has a wire on it. Your meter will pretty much read full continuity if good, no reading at all if bad. Also check from one of these terminals of the element with one meter probe going to the metal frame of the unit. You should get no reading. If you do the element is shorted and would have likely tripped your house breaker.

Better to test a heating element for voltage with your meter like I described to you in your other question. I've seen heating elements read good when just doing a continuity test, however once voltage is applied and they start to heat they can expand and open up, thus not work, even though testing good when doing just a continuity test. Not always, but sometimes, it does happen enough to note to you.

Several things to check. Be sure you have the correct voltage to the unit.
Since this is an electrical heated device, it is loaded with safety switches. There is sometimes a thermal overload,or clix-on bimetal device in the exhaust inside the rear of the unit. If your exhaust becomes restricted, it will take the heater out of the circuit. If you do not have enough air flow, the element would burn up/ out. I would look around again as I'm sure there are other safety devices as the one I mentioned as well as one near the element to prevent overheating.
The timer is also responsible for sending power to the element as well as the motor.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

Replaced heating element/worked for 10 min now doesnt


Howdy: Check the thermostat on the inside in the back. If unpluged or lint is clinging to it , the unit will shut off heat. Please inspect. Good luck - It also could be defective. - Doug

Electric kenmore 90 series working but no heat?


Most likely that is the heat element. Some dryers have the element in the front but most of the time yours can be accessed from the rear.
