If that is a gas dryer then I suspect them coils are working when cold but failing when hot
it heats up then goes - themobilian_2103.jpg
If it is electric it could very well be a blockage OR a bad breaker

If it's a gas dryer and the heat works for the first 15 to 30 minutes then no heat you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve.next time send the model number and brand name so i can help you better.

Why does my PTHP. shut off and switch to electric resistance heat?


im guessing its there way of defrosting the coils , as with this type (small) its tough to defrost the coils in an efficient way , hp runs normal to within one or two degrees of setpoint , hp shuts off or reverses in low speed , back up heat comes on to complete the room heat and to generate the heat needed to defrost the coils , entire unit shuts off when set point is reached , reversing valves set for heat and wait till next cycle

now mine does something slightly different : it runs for fifteen minutes and if set point is not reached it switches to back up and reverses the coils ,leaves compressor on (low speed) , this heats the coils up and defrosts the outdoor unit , and if it runs long enough twenty minutes total time , it goes back to normal and aux heat shuts off . this drives me insane thinking how much im spending on heating the outside !! but im sure its needed to prevent ice build up on outdoor coils ,and I sure don't want that cracking with ice formations

Why do my honeywell thermostat blow cold air?


Either your fan Tstat setting is set to "on" instead of "auto" or your furnace is going off on a limit switch when this happens it automatically runs your fan for safety reasons. Check your Tstat setting then check and change your furnace filter if neither solutions work time to call a pro.

Kenmore classic bottom freezer refrigeration warm but freezer is cold


I would guess you have just caused a build up of ice to block the air way, which normally takes cold air into the fridge. manually defrost (unplug and wait until the ice goes away) then restart and it should be fine

My furnace light is telling me that the limit swich is open so what can I do it is starting to get cold in here. Help please?


on most furnaces the limit switch will reset its self.not knowing which furnace you have i will guess that there is maybe a resetable switch in the fan compartment or the roll out switch at the burner opening. either of these problems need your furnace looked at. the limit switch is over heating,bad motor dirty filter blocked air return, and the roll out switch would mean something is wrong in the combustion chamber

When furnace goes off after heating the house, it will come on again for a few seconds then shut off. It usually does this once but sometimes twice.


This is usually nothing to worry to much about. What is happening is that setting for fan off on limit is set a little high which will cause blower to shut off while there is still some heat in heat exchanger. If this is a older unit you can set the fan off setting on limit switch. If it's a newer unit and you have the manual you can change setting on control board. If you can tell me more about age of unit I would be happy to try to tell you how to set limit. Thank you

No heat in 98 jimmy. Replaced water pump,


Possibly.. the actuators which operate the doors actually have a position signal for reference, but the actual motors inside the actuators dont realize there is a limit and overshoot their limits causing the fine wires inside to rip apart rendering the actuator scrap but this happens when actuators are still plugged in to the connector while being taken off the heater door, and they can and will still move with the key in the off position if the actuator thinks it not in the proper position..thats how they work anyway.hope you had them unplugged untill the last, then this would'nt happen....hope this explaination helped

Limit switch burns out


Bravo on your troubleshooting, however, it is strongly recommended that if the hi-limit thermostat and/or the Thermal cut-out are defective that you replace BOTH components at the same time. That's why they are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so can result in premature failure of the components you just replaced. In addtion, before you replace any components, make sure the dryer exhaust vent ducting is clear and free of obstructions. This is usally the cause of most dryer failures. This will cause the heating circuits to overheat, which is usually why the TCO or hi-limit thermostats fail. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Honeywell manual fan switch broken


The fan limit switch is basically like a thermostat. When the plenum heats up to a certain degree it turns on the fan to start heating your house, and turns off when the fan off when the plenum gets around 80-90 degrees so that you’re not pumping cold air in to house. It also acts as a safety switch if the fan does not come on the plenum will get way to hot so this fan limit will kick the furnace off before that happens. As far as that little white button it should always be on auto you can try to use needle nose pliers to get it back into the auto position, or if you have the broken piece you can try to glue it back on. The white button goes in and out it does not turn or anything just make sure you turn the power off first and if u can’t fix it replace.
