Most common cause is burn out of the thermal cut-out. These are a small screw on device on the exhaust duct, when exhaust air reaches too high a temperature, like a blockage, they fail before a fire.
Clean the exhaust ducts all the way to the outside wall, lots of vent hoods block over time. then examin the exhaust duct for devices that look like this My tumbledryer doesnt want to - b786ce3.jpg or like this b95c837.jpg with wires connected to the terminals. there may be 2(hi lo), test with a flashlilight bulb or meter conductivity good, no conductivity replace.
there are only a few different kinds the local parts guy will have them all. take the dud one for him to match.

I have a frigidaire FEX831CS0 that doesnt get hot while drying. Just blows cold air. Im assuming heating element...


Before you reinstall the part, have your ducts and air vents cleaned so it won't burn out again. It only costs around $150.00 but will make a huge difference in your air quality as well as heating and dryer issues.

Heat doesnt work in my jeep cherokee when driving but when sitting heat works


Put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator. Only if it's cold out though, Usually in really cold weather, the cooling affect of the cold air circulating around the radiator keeps the fluid from getting hot enough to produce heat unless your running in park.

Hi, The tumbledryer is only flowing cold air? Could you help, please? Thanks, Chris


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

2001 dodge status rt 3.0 engine will blow out cold air sometimes. It doesnt seem to be overheating. Do I need to change the therostat.


Thats a very inexpensive route to start with. It blows out cold air when you put your heat on?If so it could also be in the heating unit itself. If your car makes a clicking noise when you switch your heat over from the AC, it could be your temperature contol unit. My wifes car had that issue, and hers is a a mits Galant, but is set up the same as some stratus's.

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with automatic climate control. The drivers side blows cold air constantly. It has no heat.


sounds like the blend door motro may be bad, this motor is screwed to heater box, there are a few of these motors one for pass/side for hot/cold air then one to control position of air like defrost or vent or floor, then the driverside cold/hot air, i think this motor is on driverside part of heater box, to make sure locate each motor while moving all controls until you spot the one that doesnt move, then remove it and move door manualy to see if you get heat, then replace that motor, hope this helps,

Heat in a Econoline 150 just stopped. Blows out cold air. Dont have fuse diagram where do I find one


I'm not sure your problem is a blown fuse. If the blower motor is running and pushing out air, then it's working normally. First check would be the thermostat, let the engine warm up and feel the radiator hoses. If 1 hose gets hot and the other is cold, most likely you have a bad thermostat. If thats ok, make sure you dont have any vacuum leaks, as most of the blend air doors that allow heat into the van are vacuum operated. It doesnt take much of a vacuum leak to lose your heat. Finally, make sure the control cables behind the head unit are in place and not kinked or broken.

Blows cold air , it still spins, but doesnt heat up.


Is this a condenser dryer or vented?

On the condensers, if the water collector is full it will only blow cold air. Sometimes the water pumps that bring the water to the collector bottles can go and it makes the dryer think that the bottle is full, therefore it will blow cold air.

Hope this helps!
