The heating element is always 120 volts.

the two lines from the breaker box to the dyer consist of two 110 volt lines which one runs the motor and one for the heating element

I have a Frigidaire smooth top range. Burners heat, EOC as no power and thebake and broil elements therefore can't be turned on. I ordered and replaced the EOC. I am getting 240 volts from the wa

I'm assuming you're in the US, and the regular power outlets should have 120v AC.
Check your neutral at the power outlet. Between any of the 2 hot wires (your 240v) and neutral there should be about 120v AC.
If the neutral there is ok - check continuity between a white wire in a 6-pin plug on your board and neutral on the range plug.

If all ok there - check continuity between a black wire which connects to "L1" on the board and black wire from the power cord at the terminal block.

Good luck,

Heating element is not working

I would say it could be one of two things. The heating elements could be bad, not likely though as the were working when the dryer was reset. You may want to try changing your circuit breaker, as your heating elements work off of the 2 phase 240 voltage while everything else in the dryer works off 120V. Check the voltage on each phase of the breaker in your electric panel see if your putting out the full 110-120V per phase.

My Frigidaire dryer has no heat. It was working fine last week and I could look inside and see it was ''red'' around where it was heating from the back part. 1 day later, no heat & no ''red'' ring in...

Check your breaker box. Dryer will run on 120 volts but will not heat without a full 240 volts. If that's not your problem, it's best to hire someone. I only say that because this brand of dryer is not easy to work on.

Oven and burners will not heat up

have you checked your fuse/breaker panel for 120/240 volts and again at unit plug,sounds like you lost one leg of the 240volts and you only have 120volts and if its on the clock and timer side they will still work,but need 240 to heat elements fully

Luquid crystal television set - 125-240 AC

You have basically 2 options available to you:

1) Contact Sharp at the address you listed and they will instuct you on what you need.

2) Purchase a power conversion transformer. This will convert the 240AC to 110 AC and you can use the standard 110 AC cord.

How do you replace the fuse when your dryer tumbles but does not heat? it is a front load frigidare affinity electric dryer model LEQ700SE0

The fuses or breaker is located in your homes fusebox. An electric dryer requires 240 volts and 2-30amp fuses, or 1-30amp breaker. Locate your fusebox and determine if you have fuses or breakers. If fuses, then I recommend changing both 30 amp fuses to eliminate any possibility of being wrong. If it uses a breaker,(If not labled, look for the number 30 on a breaker). Flip the breaker to the OFF position, then back to the ON position. Repeat this action if there are more than 1-30 amp breakers and your dryer still doesn't heat.
