Burnt stove element

Hi there, My 15 year-old GE basic stove has a burnt element. The stove has been discontinued; I looked in Canada and the States. Surely a stove should last longer than this? My husband bought a different element and wants to adapt it. Is this safe?
Many thanks,
EB

I need a thermostat and an element for a GE Medallion 850 Electric dryer repair man told me we can no longer find parts for this model it's too old. Anyone know of a website i'm having no luck.


Try calling GE Appliance Parts at 1-877-959-8688, or Sears Parts Direct at (888) 930-1491. If they don't have the parts, you probably are out of luck.

Maytag Dryer MDE3706AYW has a burnt black wire, did the wire just have a bad day or do I need to replace the heating element and the wire?


All should be good. I think the element had run on due to a bad hi-limit thermostat that you said you replaced.

My speed queen aem497w is 15 years old and quit drying recently, no heat ,drum spins as usual, vent is clear , what gives ? Dave from Canal Winchester,Ohio


Hi - I am not too familiar with Speed Queens, I work a lot on Maytags, however the principals are the same.

So here goes - there is most like to be an open circuit due to the following , bad/burnt wire or terminal somewhere close to the heat elements, open circuit on the two thermostats & the over-temp fixed close to the elements, the outside chance of the thermal fuse blown.

One would noramally gain access thru the front (Best) and often from the back, sorry I cannot guide you on this as stated earlier.

Hi my dryer is only just over 1 year old so of course warrenty is up and it wont heat. it runs and circulates but no heat, my husband cleaned out the vent tube what else can we do?? it cant be major its...


it could be the heating element even though it is just over a year old, i have seen heating elements go out on 3 month old dryers, it also could be a thermostat the best thing to do is make sure it is getting the full 220 volts going to it, if it only has 110 volts the motor will run and have no heat and vise versa, then if that is good get to the heating element and look it over real good most of the time the heating coil will be broke into it wont look burnt just broke

I have a GE profile 3 years old. It won't heat


There are many things that can cause a no heat symptom in an electric dryer, here is a list of possible causes in order of likelihood or ease of access.

1. An open fuse/breaker in the house fuse panel.
There are 2 fuses or breakers for the dryer, both must be good in order for the dryer to function properly. If one is open, it is possible for the dryer to run but not generate heat. In the case of breakers, try resetting them as sometimes one of the two can open but not physically tip the mechanical lever.

2. An open thermal fuse in the dryer.
Some models use a thermal safety limiter or thermal fuse which could open the circuit to the heat element. These are used to prevent a runaway or over heat condition and are often found mounted to the blower or heater element housing (see the links below for examples). These devices are a fairly current development and may not be found on very old dryers.

Note: If this is the cause of your current problem (pardon the pun), I strongly suggest you check the vent for obstructions and ensure its length meets the manufacturers recommended limitations, the shorted the better. Failure of this part could be the first indication of a potential fire hazard in the dryer!

3. The element coil is burnt out.
Dryer elements are bare wires coiled like springs, when they fail the wire will break opening the circuit. This breakage could be intermittent, only opening as the element expands as it heats. Sometimes the element coil has to be physically checked for breakages, especially where the coil goes through ceramic insulator which could hide a breakage from plain view. Depending on the brand and style, the replacement element may be just the coiled wire that has to be mounted into the original element housing. On other models the element assembly comes already mounted on a frame that then in installed into the element housing or directly into the dryer. Whichever the case, the element coil has to be replaced not just joined together using connectors.

4. A burnt wire or wire connector. Replace the burnt wire connector and/or wire and inspect the component terminal it was attached to. If any sign of charring or discoloration are visible on the component's terminal or repeated failures occur at that same location, replace the component the terminal is part of. Such items can include the main power junction terminal block (very common), thermodiscs (thermostats), heat selector switch, centrifugal switch (on the motor) or the timer.

Trying to determine if it is worth replacing the heating element on a 12-15 year old electric dryer?


Are you kidding me? Light bulbs don't last for 15 years, why would ya think your dryer heating element would last longer. Me I replace the element every time. Todays newr electronic **** is worthless.

GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot


The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
