The wire connecting to the heating element keeps melting/burning. Ive replaced it twice, each time it melted, how do i fix it?


What size wire? When you replaced the heating coil, what did you use? Was it OEM? What part number? Do you have an ohm meter?

WHY WOULD IT NOT BE HEATING UP


This means your heating element has burnt out. Usually they consist of a coil, much like you can see on a hair dryer, in line with the air intake. Most common cause is the coil burning out due to excess lint and severing itself. When the coil breaks electricity cant travel from positive to negative so the coil stops heating up. Look online, try sears, type in your model number followed by - heating element - . You should be able to find your model number in the manual or by searching the name of the dryer. If you get the heating element and pay someone to install it, you should not have to pay more then getting a new dryer.

Not getting hot


Hello there and welcome to fixya
There are many things that can cause a no heat symptom in an electric dryer, here is a list of possible causes in order of likelihood or ease of access.
  1. An open fuse/breaker in the house fuse panel. There are 2 fuses or breakers for the dryer, both must be good in order for the dryer to function properly. If one is open, it is possible for the dryer to run but not generate heat. In the case of breakers, try resetting them as sometimes one of the two can open but not physically tip the mechanical lever.
  • An open thermal fuse in the dryer. Some models use a thermal safety limiter or thermal fuse which could open the circuit to the heat element. These are used to prevent a runaway or over heat condition and are often found mounted to the blower or heater element housing (see the links below for examples). These devices are a fairly current development and may not be found on very old dryers.

    alertbubble.gif Note: If this is the cause of your current problem (pardon the pun), I strongly suggest you check the vent for obstructions and ensure its length meets the manufacturers recommended limitations, the shorted the better. Failure of this part could be the first indication of a potential fire hazard in the dryer!
  • The element coil is burnt out. Dryer elements are bare wires coiled like springs, when they fail the wire will break opening the circuit. This breakage could be intermittent, only opening as the element expands as it heats. Sometimes the element coil has to be physically checked for breakages, especially where the coil goes through ceramic insulator which could hide a breakage from plain view.
  • Depending on the brand and style, the replacement element may be just the coiled wire that has to be mounted into the original element housing. On other models the element assembly comes already mounted on a frame that then in installed into the element housing or directly into the dryer. Whichever the case, the element coil has to be replaced not just joined together using connectors.
    Open switches.These can include the heat selector switch mounted on the console panel, one of the thermostats (from 2 to 5 on some models) mounted in various locations of the internal dryer ducting, the motor switch or the heater contacts of the timer or a 'heater relay' on newer models with an electronic heat control mechanism.

    They dryer wont get hot. the drum still operates but will not heat up to dry. need information on part cost and how to fix.


    You first need to know, is it electric or gas. If it is electric, you more than likely have an electric element burnt out. Most dryers have one element and can be accessed sometimes through a small door in the front of the dryer (depending how old). An "element" is a long coil looking wire that looks like a real long spring. It gets hot and air passes over the element into the dryer. If the element burns out, the dryer will come on, but no heat. You can visible look at the element and sometimes you can tell if its burnt in two. Be sure to unplug the dryer before inspecting.

    Polohunt1@aol.com my bionaire bch9221 120 volt heater does not produce heat anymore.....i'm thinking that maybe an element within the unit is burned out.


    Mine was doing the same thing. Took it apart and found that the white wire which hooked up from the circuit board to the heating element had burnt which broke the connection...hence no heat....replaced burnt wire and resoldered to heating element...put it back together and voila I have heat once more....still doesn't solve why the wire fried though....

    No heat


    Most likely you have a burnt element....A good handy man could replace the element fairly easily.. Cost of a new element about $50-$75

Whichever the case, the element coil has to be replaced not just joined together using connectors.

    4. A burnt wire or wire connector. Replace the burnt wire connector and/or wire and inspect the component terminal it was attached to. If any sign of charring or discoloration are visible on the component's terminal or repeated failures occur at that same location, replace the component the terminal is part of. Such items can include the main power junction terminal block (very common), thermodiscs (thermostats), heat selector switch, centrifugal switch (on the motor) or the timer.

    No heat in dryer model # 96591420


    Check the following to address this issue.




    1. No power to the dryer
    Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

    2. Heating element
    A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

    3. Thermal fuse
    Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
