Question about Dryers

Open Question

My Frigidaire Crown Series electric dryer (model # FSEB39RGS0) is getting hot on the outside and shutting off mid cycle. After about 30 minutes I can turn it back on and finish drying the load before it shuts off again. I have checked for lint in the exhaust hose and into the dryer opening and it's all clear and air is coming out. There is also a brown burn mark on the back of the dryer in the center, close to the top. How can i fix this?

SOURCE: Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.

Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: Frigidaire dryer overheating and shutting off mid cycle

Usually dryers have the exact opposite problem where the heat does not come on. Because most dryers have thermocouples (rated at 150 & 185 degrees) to prevent the dryer from getting too hot. You may have the blower fan come off of the motor. Check and see if you have air moving out of the vent. Also unplug the dryer and take the back off and inspect the area where it is getting hot. It may be some wires touching the case. Sometimes you can see the problem or smell something getting too hot. Either way be carefull. A dryer that overheats is a fire hazard!

Hi, Here are the obvious parts to check: Heater, High limit, Thermal fuse or thermostats...these are all generally located in the back but some models you access them from front. the most common cause is either heater or thermal fuse, I will include a picture of the thermal fuse. If you test these parts and find they all work you may be looking at a centrifiacal switch problem.

Here is a picture of the thermal fuse check this part first:

Please feel free to contact again if you have any other problems.

Hope this helps.

Excessive lint on or near the heater coils will send smoldering lint onto the clothes. Use a flash light and go inside the drum to see the heating coils or lifting the top up who should be able to see the lint build-up on the coils. These need to be cleaned.

Why is my dryer shutting off half way through and smell hot


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FFSE5115PW, is shutting halfway through the cycle, and smells hot. Please make sure that the lint filter, lint trap, ducting leading outside, and the outside ducting are free of lint. What can happen, is there is not enough air flow if these are clogged with lint, so your dryer will become hot and smell hot. This could possibly cause it to turn off as a safety feature. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Why is my frigidaire dryer quitting after running a few minutes. It runs fine on the no heat so the motor is alright.


Not neccessarily the cool cycle uses less power and pressure from the motor, the winedings on motor may be bad or going out? does it shut down after 20-30 minutes of running? u may also want to check ur venting and ur thermostats the cycling and the thermal cut off, if ur having an over heating problem they can and will shut off the cycle as a safety precaution

My dryer is getting so hot that it is shutting itself off mid cycle. I can restart but it only runs a short time....gets really hot and shuts off again!!


Check your entire vent tubing from the outside vent to the line coming out of the back of the dryer.
Overheating indicates low air discharge flow. The air in the dryer must move out quickly so the heat doesn't build up too much.
Try that & post back.

Dryer gets hot and shuts off after five minutes,


Check your vent tube to make sure it is clear. It is probably getting to hot because there is no ventilation to the outside. When you have the front off, check all the way from the lint filter to the outsid of the house.
