Dryer won't come on. Wire block burned. Wires test good. Heating coil lookes burned


A good heating element should have continuity. When the heating element breaks, there is no continuity between the heater terminals. But sometimes, the broken ends of the heating element can make contact with the metal heater housing (from vibration) and draw a large current, causing the symptoms you have described.

To confirm a "short" between the heating element and the heater housing, check for continuity between the housing and each heater terminal. (The shorted part of the heating element is usually welded to the housing.) Occasionally, the short will not be welded, but a visual inspection will verify (welding scars and black soot) that a short has occurred, intermittantly.

Replace the terminal block, heater, damaged internal wiring, and possibly the thermal fuse, thermostats, and power cord.

Good luck

We're is the fuse located for the electric water heater I have hot water on gas but the electric heater just stopped when I'm plugged in


It is not fused, they don't use fuses and haven't for decades, it is hooked into the house current at the breaker box for the house.

Hot water heater will not turn on


You need to have the unit checked. Two possibilities come to mind if it is an electric water heater. 1. Burnt out heating element. 2. Failed thermostatic element switch located in the unit. Many water heaters have two elements.

No heat, but dryer turns.


There are three common causes of a dryer not heating. First is a busted heating element. Second, the thermal cut-off has blown. Third, the high limit thermostat is not working.

Disconnect power to the machine and remove the screws at the bottom of the lower front access panel (toe panel) holding it in place. Pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You now have access to the heating circuit.

Remove the heater shield by removing its mounting screw and pulling it off the heater housing.

The heater terminal block is located at the left opening of the heater housing. Disconnect the wire from one of the heater terminals and measure the resistance of the heating element using an ohmmeter set to X1. The resistance should read 7.8 -11.8 ohms. Replace the heating element if the resistance reads open.

Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the heating element and remove the screw securing it to the heater housing. Slide the busted heating element out of the housing and install the new heating element. Secure it with the screw and put the terminal block in place. Connect the heater wires and reinstall the heater shield.

Slide the lower front access panel up into the cabinet and secure it with the screws.

Heater not heating at the right temperature?


Sir,

Your heater is only a 21K BTU heater. It is not meant to heat a whole house. We don't know how big you house is, however a 21K heater will not heat 4 or 5 rooms. The best you could expect out of a Rinnai 556 would be to heat a couple of rooms that are next to each other. You will never be able to heat rooms in your house that have doors or are down the hall a ways.

Good luck,

Dryer won't dry - no heat


Make sure you have 240 volts going in. If you do, then it can only be the heating element or the thermo cut off located on the heater housing. Also could be the thermostat on the housing as well. The heater relay is possible, but check that last, it's most likely the element.

Heater problem model PHK 080-1


THE BURNING SMELL IS NORMAL. BEFORE HEATING SEASON OPEN ALL DOORS AND TURN THE HEAT UP AND LET RUN TILL ALL DUST IS BURNT OFF. IF BLOWER IS NOT COMMING ON NOW. THERE ARE 2 TIME DELAY RELAYS, AND ANOTHER RELAY FOR "FAN ONLY OPERATION". ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT THE PROBLEM BEFORE REPLACING AN EXPENSIVE MOTOR.
