No, this is the way in which your unit was designed. You could adapt a 2 coil system, but that would be extremely complicated and expensive.
If you really need that output modularity it will be much cheaper to purchase a second unit of a much smaller power and use it on its own than to modify the existing one.

Well for some models and makes, these one are clearly indicated, say in/on the units rear, or manual, if it doesn't specifically indicate that it does, then NO, you cannot retrofit a dual coil, in place of a single coil.

Heating element on frigidaire dryer keep burning out


How many times???

Did you replace the Heating element with the housing or did you purchase the coil and ran through the old element housing. If you did the latter, make sure it will not touch the element housing and short out. This case you will see a black burn spark on the housing close to the element broken point. Did you lock in the heating element ends to the ceramic plate.

Sounds like one of your heating elements is not heating properly.
Check to make sure you are getting power to both of the heating coils, you can check that by removing the two covers over the heating elements and checking with an electric ohm/volt meter for power to the elements. If you have power going to both elements then you will need to check the elements themselves.
Unplug the water heater and then check the two heating coils to make sure they have continuity across the two terminals. You probably will find only one is working, replace it with a new element and enjoy all the hot water you can use.

Doesn't get hot, runs fine no heat


It is possible that the heating element has burnt out or a high limit switch (safety device to prevent overheating) has gone out. Element is located at the bottom of the dryer on the oppisite side of the exhaust. Looks like a toaster coil. Any break in the coil and no heat. New elemenrts can be purchased at an appliance parts house with the serial and model numbers for your unit to ensure correct part.

I have an older GE Profile side by side not defrosting, have continuity in element when warmed thermostat kicks off and I have replaced the timer, still not defrosting. Model #THP21PBSMWW S/N SL238841


Need to check and see if the element is heating up when it goes into defrost. If the thermostat is bad it will not go into defrost. I purchased a new heating element for my GE and it came with the element and thermostat together. Also make sure the fan is running in the freezer this moves the heat through the coil as well as the cold temp when in freeze mode.

Unit is not heating but fuse is good


Heating element inside of unit has overheated and is possibly burnt out. This isn't an easy fix for a novice due to the location of the heating coils located behind the a/c evaporator coil. The coil looks just like the coils in a toaster and can be seen if you pull the unit out of the casing. The part can be purchased at any appliance parts house if you take the model and serial number with you. Good Luck on your repairs

How do you replace a bad heating element? I purchased a replacement set of elements but the old elements appear to have been welded to the wires and the new ones would need to be welded also? No...


Hey Bill,
The few things I know about heating elements is for 1, they can be a pain to replace, if you put them on wrong or have any of the element touching itself, there will be problems.2, It doesnt necessarily need connectors, it just sits on the metal post that stick out, thats what supplies the power to the coil. Hope this helps.

Need to Replace Heat ELements


you remove the screws that hold on the base plate that has the sequencers mounted on it. pulling it out so the elements clear the sides of the unit. once you remove it you can easily see the heating element coils which you can purchase a restring kit fairly cheap at your local appliance parts store. just remember to stretch it out uniformally the same length as the old one, reinstall the heat kit the same way you removed it. kit comes with new ceramic gromets if some are damaged. these units do have a 5 yr warranty on the heat strips.
