You might have a clogged or obstructed vent. There is also a high limit thermostat that is located on the heater element (electric) that sometimes goes bad. There is also a bias or running thermostat. If it's a gas dryer, I would suspect one of the coils on the gas valve, that holds open the gas, is bad. They're cheap to replace.

Will not heat water


You have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

Maytag neptune dryer doesnt heat


On the housing the element mounts in is a couple of safetys The smaller one is rated for 300f and the bigger one is rated for 250f. If the smaller one is tripped obviously you replace them both, making sure the vent to outside is clear. Them fuses blow or trip because of air restrictions.

Dryer is spinning but doesnt have any heat


Has zero heat or just warm? Does it get hot then cool off? There are three safety devices in this model that shut the element off. If that isn't the problem then it is the element itself.

After the humidifier runs for a few minutes it just shuts off.


You might need to clean around the heating element...
we have very hard water and calcium builds up on and around the heating element and all the surrounding parts. I take it apart and pour CPR around the element and scrub with a brush .. once you get it clean it should stay running.

Coffee maker DCC-2000 will not keep coffee hot,have change the auto off time no effect.


Hi,

Well the procedure to set the auto button off would be as follows. First set to 0 so it shut off as soon as it started brewing. Once the switch is turned to auto off, then when the numbers are blinking hit the hour button until you get the desired hours you want the heating element to stay on. If this does not keep the coffee warm then most likely you have a heating element down and will need to replace it. Please let me know if this does not help else please accept it.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Dryer element stays warm


If it heats w/ the timer in off position whenever plugged in the the element is shorting to ground, its most likely due to either a broken coil or a cracked insulator. If heating w/ timer set for drying but motor is not running, the heat circuit thru the centrifugal/start switch on the motor is stuck closed.

Sounds like a shorted element. This can happen if the element shorts to ground near the middle of the element. Current will then flow from the unswitched side of 240 VAC to nuetral or ground, heating up the same as if on 240 VAC.
