Sure can!
Most Kenmore style dryers have a heating element that has a long wire coil inside it, (often there are two wires or elements inside one housing). Regardless, if you have carefully checked the air exhaust, and you find it is "perfect" ( means no back-up heat from a plugged or impeded air flow) and you have determined the air flow inside the machine is like new, ( no back up there either), then what has possible happened is the wire heating element has wiggled loose and is touching itself, thereby shorting out and making super heat.
The wire coils are usually held loosely in place with white ceramic rings, to keep them from touching the metal housing. If you carefully remove the heating element "box or "tube" and look inside , you may be able to see the problem. Testing it with an ohm meter will not work, it will simply test OK. The element is made to heat at a certain temperature according to it's length, if it touches itself, the elecrttricity will take the shortest route and may make your element glow white hot in one spot. Be blessed.

My heil heat pump is not blowing warm or hot air


Assuming that the fan is okey, there's only one item to be checked, and that is the HEATING ELEMENT.
This answer is based from your comment that it is not blowing warm or hot air. So, I conclude that it is blowing air but neither hot or warm, only ambient air. So, unplug it, and check the heating element. It may need to be replaced to make it work. May this will
help you.

My heat pump package unit compressor draws high amps and keeps going up until it blows the 40 amp fuse on heat only. and on cooling only works for a minute or two and shuts off and starts again but draws...


This could be many things, but check the following:

1. The reversing valve - make sure it works and is in the correct position for the selected operation (heating or cooling)

2. Turn off the power to the system. Megger the compressor - this takes special instrumentation, but if you don't have it, set an ohm meter to Ohms x 10,000 and check each lead to ground as well as phase to phase. Look for shorts or open windings. You will need to disconnect the compressor wiring

3. If the unit has auxiliary heat, make sure the elements or the controls for them aren't stuck on - this could be a control board problem.

4. Check the outdoor unit defrost cycle for stuck heating elements or a faulty control board/stat.

5. I'm not sure if this unit has hot gas defrost, but if it does, that should also be checked.

6. Check the compressor contactor and make sure the contacts are transferring the power to the compressor. Amp check each leg to determine this.

The Dryer is starting, but shuts off after 10-15mins. It seems to be very hot. Is there an overheating element or something that can be easily replaced?


This certainly sounds like an overheating element. The problem is that the element is working. Something is allowing the element to get too hot. Then your over-limit switch is sensing the fire hazard and shutting down the system. Safety in action.
I suspect your blower fan is not running. This fan keeps the heating element from over heating by blowing the heat to the clothes in the drum. This is easily checked. The very next time you attempt to dry a load, start it and go to the exhaust vent outside. Put your hand close to it. See if it is blowing air or not. No air blowing = shut down in 10 minutes.
The blower motor should not be too hard to replace. Surely easier than the element itself. Before you pull the motor, use a multimeter to confirm that power is getting to the motor first. Power yes, motor running no, replace it.
Could also be something simple, like a wire broken or pulled off of the motor. That is why you check first. Good luck

Smell of electrical burning.. no more heat in house!


First of all keep this in mind.
You will need to locate the wires that got hot. If you can't or if your not sure, I suggest that you call a service company. If they ok the unit and it catches on fire after wards, their insurances will cover you unit and or home if god forbid it burns. This is to be on the safe side.
Now, this is where I would look. Your element should be on it's on circuit. There should be a disconnect within reach of the air handler. Some are fused and some are not. The wires that got hot enough for you to smell them should show signs of being hot like the plastic will be melted around the wire. You said that the heater was running. Was this the first time you have used it this year? If so, are you sure it was not the dust burning off the elements? They will smell like something burning when you first turn them on each year. Although if your sure you smelled wires getting hot, please continue looking for just that. Keep in mind that the elements have 220 volts coming to them. It comes into the unit and go to a switch or relay. From there the power goes to the elements and then to a neutral. These are the wires you will need to pay the most attention to. Good luck.

Heating Element on my A/C not getting hot


It definitly did not open the element the 24vac isn't enough. I would go back over the wiring.When your t- stat calls for heat you want it to energize both sequencers. the easist way to assure this is to connect the whiet and purple two gether at the a/h.

Air Conditioner malfunction


Hi, Sounds like you have a short in the control circuit to me. Turn off all power going to the unit. Write down or otherwise mark the wires leaving the control board going to the thermostat. Remove them from the control board. Replace the fuse. Turn power back on and see if the fan still runs. If it does, check and or replace the heat limit switch that brings the fan on during the heat cycle. It may just need adjusted. If the fuse blows, I would think that the control board is probably bad. If it doesn't blow, Remove the thermostat. Leaving all thermostat wires open check them with an Ohm meter. There should be no continuity between them. Twist all the wires together at one end and ohm them again at the other end. You should have complete continuity on all wires. If the wiring checks out, down power the unit. Double check your wire colors and rewire the control board. With all wires open at the thermostat, turn the power back on. Touch the RED wire to the YELLOW wire. The Condensing unit should come on. Touch the RED wire to the GREEN wire. The fan should come on. Touch the RED wire to the WHITE wire. The heat should come on. Down power the unit. Replace the thermostat. Test unit. If the fuse has lasted ok but blows now it is either wired wrong at the Thermostat or the thermostat is bad. I hope I have helped. NOTE: If you can not understand these instructions. Call a licensed Heating / Air conditioning company. kstfas

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryier (aquarius 1200)


i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe

Not blowing hot air anymore


there are two thermostats..one above and one below the heating element..they probably need to be replaced..about 30 bucks canadian..have the shop check your heating element for resistance I had the same problem with my Whirlpool, when I called around for prices one shop suggested the thermostats and then tested my element for conductivity. When it passed he sold me the thermostat replacements(they are sold in pairs) They were very easy to install, just make sure the wires are on correct..Check for small marks beside the leads and then match them up while removing old and installing new. I hope this helps
