    Yes its helpful as you said that, and i have done bypass it the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat 250 F then i start to turn on let it run about less than a minute and i see it heat up. At this time i'm still waiting for both parts ordered online to come and receive. When i receive the parts and will put on then i'll let you know the result, but i am sure 100% that will fix it and its the problem with thermal cut-off (it cut-out) and high-limit thermostat as you said, right. May i appreciate and thanks you very much, Jahn27 and this Service as well.

The problem is in the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat located on the heating element housing. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Disconnect power then access the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat. Disconnect the wires of each component then connect them together and insulate it properly. Reconnect the power then start the dryer. The problem is indeed in the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. Replace both parts and it should solve the problem. It is an easy and cheap repair to make. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Electric Water Heater blows fuse, but only every few years


Your residential water heater is not 9000 watts. Or it would blow the fuse every day and melt the wire. Instead, you have dual-element non-simultaneous 4500 watt water heater.
http://waterhatertimer.org/How-it-works.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Figure-Volts-Amps-Watts-for-water-heater.html
Look at label for 'total connected watts'
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Whirlpool-energy-smart-watt-rating-IMG_2600.jpg
25 amp breaker or fuse and 10 gauge wire is minimum acceptable for 4500 watt water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-code-wire.html
Troubleshoot blowing breaker or fuse:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#trip-breaker
Why does it blow fuse once each year?? I don't know.
Fuses and breakers trip when overheating occurs on wire.
Each fuse or breaker is rated for heat, and over time, it will get hot and then cool and then get hot again ... this action weakens fuse or breaker.
To solve problem: install 3500 watt elements (and clean sediment out of tank). Wire will run cooler, and fuse will last longer. Whole fuse box will demand less power, and run cooler, and will last longer as a result. So there is less stress on electric service panel.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html
3500 watt element will heat water to same temperature, but takes longer. For example: 4500 watt heats 21 gallons per hour, while 3500 watt heats 17 gallons per hour.

Sounds like a bad thermal fuse or thermostat, check all of them with a multi meter for continuity. as for the heater going out I would check ur venting inside and out the machine. the fuses and heater blow out for a reason? Usually due to overheating issues? I suspect ur lint build up is the problem?

The heater is less than two years old and it blows cold air, and not heat!


Make sure with a multimeter that the heater is having the continuity and the switch is contacting correctly . If so the heater must work.
If not the coil can be faulty or the switch can be defective.

Hi, I have a Brivis Buffalo. The heater will not run when the fan is set to auto even though the pilot light is on, and the wall controller shows heat on. When I set the fan to on, it just blows cold air....


My buffalo heater has just started doing the same thing about two hours ago, so will watch for any answers you get. My heater is over ten years old, maybe the heating element has "died"?
PLEASE can someone out there help us????????

No heat


Yes it is is a heater element problem. YOu have to access from the back panel. There are screws need to be removed. Once the panel is off, you can see the Blower and the heating element assembly. Take off the housing so you can replace the heater.

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

Auxilliary heat just started blowing cold air


SOund like you heating element has a open limit or the sequencer is bad. Another thing that it may be is the element wire has broken. Either way it sounds like you need a technician to come out and repair.
