Question about Dryers
Without knowing the model, I would assume that the "One Time" limit has blown.
It is basically a thermal fuse. Some models require a matched set in which both limits
must be installed as a set. This often is done from the back of the machine. Unplug machine
after shutting off breaker, remove back panel for most units that have the lint
filter on top, and for others with the filter inside the door the limit is accessed by
sliding a putty knife between the top and front and press the two clips back and lift up
the lid. The model and serial number are inside the door to order the part. To test the
limits you can check them by unplugging the wires to them and using an Ohmmeter
(across the terminals)
they should read zero ohms or almost zero on a digital meter, for an analog meter the
needle should move towards the right. Note: on dryers with the lint filter inside the
door the internal ductwork may be blocked causing this problem to occur and will
need cleaning by removing the two screws and cleaning out the duct with a vacuum
and/ or duct brush. Hope this helps.
