Is the top heating element inside the oven supposed to get hot even if not set on broil?

Yes the top element does get hot even on bake but it does not get red hot just hot. It will get hot enough to burn you so be very carful.

Dryer will not start ., only get a click when you push the push to start button.model 110 6499 4301

Sounds like a failed thermal fuse and unit got too hot and this problem must be address to ensure that it will not happen again. Check you venting system to ensure proper air flow...

Heating element stays on, even at fluff air no heat setting. Replaced high limit thermostst and thermistor Air flow good

If your heating element is grounded (wire burnt in half and is touching metal) the heat will stay on forever, even in air fluff. This is your most likely problem.

The dryer stoped heating its like its only cold air

I will assume this is an electric dryer.

When asking for help, you should include the brand and model number to help get a great answer.

In my experience, these are the possible problems in order of how often they happen.

1) Thermal overheat sensor fails. This is a small electrical device that will turn off the heating element if it thinks the dryer is getting too hot. It will have 2 wires connected to it and a silver colored round metal piece that senses the heat. When this part fails, the heater will not turn on. Disconnect the wires from this sensor and verify that it has zero (0) ohms across the two connectors.

2) Heating element could be burned out. Disconnect the two wires from the heating element and verify that it has a low resistance. Replace it if there is no resistance.

3) The thermostat has failed. There is a part that monitors the heat in the oven and turns the heating element on and off. You test it the same way you test item #1 above.

4) Some dryers have a FLUFF setting where the dryer only blows cold air. The switch that selects the heat settings could be broken. You will need to test this switch by looking at the electrical schematic for the dryer and testing the switch as indicated.

5) The knob on the switch that chooses the heat setting could be pushed onto the shaft in the wrong position so it points to "hot" when it is actually set to "fluff." The simplest way to test this is to choose a heat setting one click, either direction, from the one it is on now. If you get heat, the knob is pointing to the wrong place.
