.will not get hot no heat al all gas good vent


Slope front dryer manual

Once you get into the machine first check the temp control on the blower housing then the fuse beside it for continuity. The the dryer cold the control should ge continuity. open control and no heat.open fuse no heat
Any open safety no heat. If all the safetys is good nest take a look at the gas assembly. The gas assembly components all are powered up at once in an elaborate wiring scheme. The ignitor draws a lot of current, so much so that the coils will not yank open the valve till the ignitor is shut down. That is the job of the flame sensor. It shuts down the ignitor allowing the gas coils to do they job and yank open the gas valve, and the gas hits the ignitor and fires off a blast of hot air. It take only a moment to get the temp in the drum to 160f. And then that control I spoke of earlier shuts down the gas assembly. The clicking on and off and the whoosh of the blast of heat is repeated throughout the drying process. themobilian_2496.jpgthemobilian_2497.jpgthemobilian_2498.jpg
If the heat works some but dies then them solenoids is old and tired. A bad blower wheel could blow safetys themobilian_2499.jpg

My ge dryer DBVH512GFOWW quit heating how do i fix


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
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.

GE dryer won't heat, Has 240 volts at dryer plug and the heating coils have continuity.


You need to check the thermistor/thermostats...that may be your problem.
When they go bad, the will not let the heating element heat up to proper temp.
Good Luck,
Hope this Helps

MY GE GAS DRYER WILL NOT HEAT UP


check an pop the lil plastic cover on the front of the dryer an then turn the dryer on an see if the igniter glows after 30 secnds if it glows........** you probably have bad coils****if it doesnt then check the thermal fuse for continuity if is not checking ok replace it , that is one of the most common causes,
steps
1 check igniter for glowing
2 check thermal fuse for continuity test
3 if they both check ok an still no heat change the coils

good luck!

How do I test for bad thermastat or heating element on GE dryer


well the fact that hte heating elemnt is glowing tells me that all the thermstats are working, i would check for a blockage/restriction in the venting. looking at te diag, its possible that only 1 of the 2 coils for the heate are actually going on, check the coils for continuity( may be a small break that separates when gets hot)
