First find the Mfr/Model number of your Dryer, and then phone your favorite local
major appliance parts store and ask them what's their price and part number for a
replacement heating element for your Dryer. Then you have 1 price/pert number for
one replacement heating element (from one Mfr that may not be the manufacturer of
the dryer itself). Phone another major appliance part store, and ask them the same
question, and you'll have another price/part number, pick the one you like best.
Then, post another question on FixYa, about how to install it - I (or you) may
then hunt down YouTube videos on how to install a Dryer Heating Element.

Electric range heating elements don't work at all for "bake" function, but "broil" function works (top element) & stovetop works.


The bake (bottom) element has probably burnt out. It's very easy and inexpensive to change them.

First order a new one. Get the range model number and search Google for the element part number. You will get a number of appliance parts suppliers. Check a couple of them for prices and record the part number. (A few suppliers use private part numbers. Most use the manufacturer's part number which will be the one which appears most frequently.)

You could then order from the least expensive supplier, but don't do so. Now search Amazon and eBay for that part number. You will find the part for less than half the price. Order one.

When it arrives, do this:
  1. Unplug the range or make SURE it is turned off.
  2. Remove the old element. It will be held in place with a single Phillips head screw or a hex-head screw. Use the right sized screwdriver or nut driver or socket-wrench as appropriate. The screw will be tight after years of baking. After removing the screw, pull and wiggle the element until it comes unplugged.
  3. Push the new element into the socket and secure it with the screw.
Turn on the oven and let it heat for 5-10 minutes before baking to burn off the bad-smelling coating on the new element.

You probably need a new heating element. Type your model number + Heating element into Google search. and it should bring up several retailers that carry the part. It's not a hard job to do, just labor intensive. Unplug your dryer, remove the back plate, disconnect element wires (remember where they go or mark them with lettered pieces of tape) unscrew the element. Install: Put wires on new element, reattach element, reinstall back cover, and you're done.

WHY WOULD IT NOT BE HEATING UP


This means your heating element has burnt out. Usually they consist of a coil, much like you can see on a hair dryer, in line with the air intake. Most common cause is the coil burning out due to excess lint and severing itself. When the coil breaks electricity cant travel from positive to negative so the coil stops heating up. Look online, try sears, type in your model number followed by - heating element - . You should be able to find your model number in the manual or by searching the name of the dryer. If you get the heating element and pay someone to install it, you should not have to pay more then getting a new dryer.

Whirlpool Gold Electric convection oven does not heat up.


Check for a broken wire or even broken element on top and bottom of unit. To do this, the unit must be unplugged or otherwise removed from power completely, then remove the screws that hold each heating element in place and gently pull out and inspect the wire connections. You should have just enough slack to check them. There should also be just enough slack to strip the wire clean to make the new connection to the heating element.

If the repair has been done before, you may need to fish a new lingth of high temp wire into the location.

Dryer only heats for 10


I am sorry that you have had to replace so many components. Since you didn't leave a model number I have to answer generically. The symptoms you have would lead me to check out the thermal switch. If it is sensing a too hot condition it will cut the power to the heating element.

My dryer turns on and runs but the clothes are not drying. its a crosley dryer and relatively new. checked lint filter and vaccumed up dust and lint and made sure that the screen and exhaust were clear


Sounds like the heating element or a fuse for the heating element. Impossible to tell you how to troubleshoot though unless I have the model type. Use google to type in your type and model number along with heating element (i.e., GE XXXXXX heating element troubleshooting) and you'll likely find some instructions for troubleshooting.

Oven won't heat, all burners work


I suggest that you remove the upper and lower heating elements to the oven, turn the oven switch to on, then use a good digital voltmeter, and check the plug that the lower heating element was in. If you have good (200 volts or more) then purchase and install new heating elements. Turn the oven switch to Broil setting and check the same way for the top heating element.

My dryer will not heat up


most commonly its a fuse, but it could very easily be the heating element. but more tro the point, this is a site for computer problems, not anything else problems. for this kind of thing look up the manufactors' website for a phone number to contact. then ask them the problem. incidentally, if the element has gone, throw it out and buy a new one, as the element will cost you more than the rest put together. silly, but true.

My 7 year old Malber WD 1000 won't dry - Where to order heating element?


pete5runner back again: The check you should make is to disconnect the two wires to the heating element carefully (with unit unplugged). Then connect a 110 voltmeter to the two wires. The plug in the machine and start a dry cycle. If you see 110 volts on the voltmeter, then you know that power is getting to the heating element, and you have isolated the heating element as defective. If you need a heating element, I got one in NY by calling 718-767-7396. New element was $29, shipping included. I don't know if he will ship to where you are located. Good luck, and let me know what happens.
