Question about GE DBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer overheating but not drying clothes!

The dryer works and heats up, but gets too hot. At the same time, the rubber seal on the dryer door has cracked. I don't know if replacing the seal will fix the problem or not! The lint collector is clean and there is no noise or other issue. Please help! Only two or three years old!

Kenmore elite electric dryer runs but then gets hot and then shuts off, replaced thermal fuse, dryer vent and tubing not plugged, dryer runs gets hot blows thermal fuse again.


DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Cant get the lid over the rubber on the older saniplus to seal unit


Sure hope you got that fixed. If not you can try to make the rubber more flexible with heat, either a towel/rag soaked in hot water and then applied to it for a few minutes or a hair dryer on low blowing on it for a few minutes (be careful you don't burn the rubber).

The freezer keeps on frosting up ,and ice dispenser over flows don't know if that is related or not.Have to defrost every 2 weeks. Thanks.


Check the seal on the door.. Make sure the door closes all the way. Take piece of paper and put it on the surface that touches the refere and seal and close the door and slowly drag the paper out of the machine. Note how much drag is applied to the paper. It should be equal all the way around the door seal. If it is not, then either the seal is damaged or needs to be reheated. If it is damaged, then replace it. If it is distorted, then take a hair dryer and heat the rubber seal, careful to not get it too hot, and work the rubber so it will return to its original form. Recheck with the paper drag test and you should be good to go... Lemme know how it goes... 765d50e.gif

I get excess frost on things in the freezer of my frost free refridgerator


Hello Monkeyhouse,
I live in a monkey house of my own with two little girls climbing on everything. If your house is like mine the main reason for frost build up is warm moist air entering the freezer. My children love to open the door all the time so I get some frost from that. If you are really getting alot then you may have a crack in your seal around the door. or the door is not sealing completely. To solve the problem you can adjust the door or you can replace the seal. Replacing the seal is really harder than most people would care to tackle. But if you discover a bad spot on the seal this is the best way to replace it. First would be to buy you a seal and start it soaking in hot hot water. This will loosen the rigidity of the seal and help with seating. Once the seal is soft begin removing the old seal. You can do this byraising the inside of the seal and loosening the screws. Do not remove the screws completely just loosen enough to remove and replace a small section at a time. work the new seal around and once you feel it is perfectly centered on all sides tighted the screws. If you still have waves or the door is not sealing you may need to reheat the seal with a hair dryer. Use caution not to burn the seal or overheat the seal.. Over heating will cause it to shrink and it will never work. Good luck to you and please let me know it this helped. MCA0824@aol.com
