Check the main power at the terminal block and make sure you have 220 volts.If that is good then you need to look at all of the thermal fuses and check them for continuity if you find one that has no continuity then replace that part.

We can't get our hot tub to heat. The heater light comes on but the heater still won't heat.


heating elements are resistors that get hot
one end will have 115 volts but the other end should be considerable less because the resistance of the heating element drops the voltage
if you used a ohm meter you should be reading a resistance of 500-1000 ohms for a good heater element but with your readings , there will be no resistance so the element is faulty

Dryer won't come on. Wire block burned. Wires test good. Heating coil lookes burned


A good heating element should have continuity. When the heating element breaks, there is no continuity between the heater terminals. But sometimes, the broken ends of the heating element can make contact with the metal heater housing (from vibration) and draw a large current, causing the symptoms you have described.

To confirm a "short" between the heating element and the heater housing, check for continuity between the housing and each heater terminal. (The shorted part of the heating element is usually welded to the housing.) Occasionally, the short will not be welded, but a visual inspection will verify (welding scars and black soot) that a short has occurred, intermittantly.

Replace the terminal block, heater, damaged internal wiring, and possibly the thermal fuse, thermostats, and power cord.

Good luck

How do I check my hot water element?


1)Locate the upper heating element in the top access. The heating element is above the thermostat, and all you will see is a round disc with two wires attaching to the disk.
  • 2)Set your ohm meter to the X1 or RX 1 scale to measure the continuity of the heating element. Touch each of the ohm meter probes to each of the terminal screws on the heating element. A positive reading indicates a good element. If there is no reading, the element is faulty.
  • 3)Test for a possible short in the heating element with the ohm meter. Touch one ohm meter probe to one of the heating element terminals. Touch the other ohm meter probe to the bracket that secures the heating element. If you get a reading of zero, the element is good. If there is any positive reading on the scale, the element is grounding itself and will require replacement.
  • 4)Test the lower heating element exactly as the upper heating element.
  • 5)Place the access doors back on the water heater tank, and secure them with the screws.

  • Good luck

    Oven won't heat, all burners work


    I suggest that you remove the upper and lower heating elements to the oven, turn the oven switch to on, then use a good digital voltmeter, and check the plug that the lower heating element was in. If you have good (200 volts or more) then purchase and install new heating elements. Turn the oven switch to Broil setting and check the same way for the top heating element.

    No heat


    if it's a gas dryer, it's the thermal fuse. if it's an electric dryer, it's the thermal cut-off located on the heating element housing. good luck bud :)

    Heating element continuity?


    Unplug the dryer from the wall. There are 2 wires connecting power at the heating element. Take one of these wires off, doesn't matter which one, but take at least one of the 2 off. Then put your meter probes across the terminal of the heating element where you took the 1 wire off and the other terminal of the heating element that still has a wire on it. Your meter will pretty much read full continuity if good, no reading at all if bad. Also check from one of these terminals of the element with one meter probe going to the metal frame of the unit. You should get no reading. If you do the element is shorted and would have likely tripped your house breaker.

    Better to test a heating element for voltage with your meter like I described to you in your other question. I've seen heating elements read good when just doing a continuity test, however once voltage is applied and they start to heat they can expand and open up, thus not work, even though testing good when doing just a continuity test. Not always, but sometimes, it does happen enough to note to you.

    The dryer works but does not heat


    Before you buy an expensive heating element change out the thermal fuse. It's only about 15 dollars for a fuse as opposed to around 100 dollars for a heating element. Both can be purchased at a appliance repair shop. The thermal fuse is usually located near the heating element housing and has two wires coming off of it. Make sure you unplug the dryer first though. If the thermal fuse if dead then your heating element will only heat for about a second or two at a time. The way to check this is to open up the dryer so you can see the heating element. While it's running watch it and it the heating element comes on and then turns off then the thermal fuse is bad. If it doesn't come on at all then the heating element is bad. Wait a good 5 minutes though before determining if the heating element isn't coming on. Sometimes it takes a bit before it engages. I hope this helps you and if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.
