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...

How to fix Whirlpool duet dryer runs but does not heat?

The element is broken, you can pick up a replacement from any wholesaler of plumbing/electrical/appliance parts. Otherwise, there could also be an in-line fuse. if you look up your appliance on the internet ( a silver sticker on the lip or groove around the perimeter of the door has the serial number and model number) you can search the exact model number and find the manual, and then see if an in-line fuse exists. Otherwise, replace the heating element

No heat but blows cold air

Not if the engine is getting up to normal temp. Could be low on coolant or a problem with the heater core or a blend door under the dash.

Check your thermal fuse, if that is ok make sure that your heating element has continuity. Also check your cord you need 240vdc at machine to operate, it will run with 120vdc but needs 240vdc to also heat.

Warm Mist HWM-2030 Humidifier: DOES NOT GIVE OFF VAPOR...

If the unit runs normally otherwise, but doesn't give off vapor, then your heating element is the culprit. i.e. if fan runs, switches in normal positions, indicating lights on, etc.and restart slide switch depressed and no mist, then, yes the heating element is the source of the problem. It may be bad, or otherwise it may just be scaled up from hard water, and require cleaning.

You may refer to your users manual, or if you no longer have a copy, you may download one at this link:

Hope this answers your question.

My Frigidaire gas dryer isn't hot. Otherwise it runs fine.

it could be either your ignitor(glow coil) flame sensor control, or a defective thermal switch telling dryer its at temp and shutting off gas supply before it even fires initially

The frizer outside is very hot. kenmore model 71192107 year7/02

The condensor coils run around , up , down , the sides of the freezer . This heat is the heat being pulled OUT of the inside , which makes the freezer cold . Freon (refrigerant) attracts heat , which causes the frost in refrigeration . But , the heat has to dissapate , otherwise , hot gas would pump thru the system , and , no cool . A freezer does not get cold , Heat is pulled out , causing food to freeze . So , hot is good .

It wont heat up

Check to make sure that both legs of the 220V feed are presnt. The motor will run on only one leg. Otherwise, on that model, check the thermal overloads mounted on the heater box, and also check the heating element for continuity.
