Bosch HBN7052 - main fuse tripping even after replacing the heating element


It appears there is too much current (electricity) being drawn towards the element, seeing once you replaced it, it worked fine for 5 minutes and then tripped again...I believe the problems lies within the wiring going towards the element, or the thermostat that controls the amount of current coming towards the element. Instead of turning off at a desired temperature, its not and continuing to heat up to the point of tripping the fuse. Try replacing the thermostat.

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine WT761? The original fault on the machine was that it was tripping out and taking out a resetable fuse in my fuse box a few seconds after turning the machine...


If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

Not heating


Hi, Check the thermostats and the fuse. Make sure the 4" vent to the outsideis cleaned. If it is plugged, it will cause elements and thermostats to go bad.
The thermostats and the fuse must have continuity. If they are open, replace them. All these parts are located in back on blower housing and element housing.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Now no heat after working for a few weeks with a new heating element.


By the time a dryer has worn out a motor and element, the wire connections are old too. You are going to have to check every connection, especially the push-on type for tightness and corrosion.

Thermostat & Fuse Wiring


The heating element failure along with the symptoms you are now experiencing, may indicate blocked or restricted air flow through the exhaust. If airflow is poor, the heater will overheat and eventually fail.
Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and at this web site: http://www.linteater.com/.
