There are two thermostats..one above and one below the heating element..they probably need to be replaced..about 30 bucks canadian..have the shop check your heating element for resistance I had the same problem with my Whirlpool, when I called around for prices one shop suggested the thermostats and then tested my element for conductivity. When it passed he sold me the thermostat replacements(they are sold in pairs) They were very easy to install, just make sure the wires are on correct..Check for small marks beside the leads and then match them up while removing old and installing new. I hope this helps

Maytag MDE4658AYW electric running hot on all settings, even on air fluff

If your Maytag MDE4658AYW electric dryer is running hot on all settings, even on air fluff, it is likely that the heating element is not working properly. Make sure that the heating element is securely connected to the dryer and that the power switch is in the "on" position. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the heating element or contact the manufacturer for assistance.

I have a Frigidaire Window AC Heater combo the cooling works but the heat does not blow hot?

It sounds like you may be experiencing issues with the heating element on your Frigidaire window AC/Heater combo unit. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the problem:
  1. Check the thermostat: Make sure that the thermostat is set to "Heat" and that the temperature is set to a level high enough to activate the heating element.
  2. Check the air filter: A dirty air filter can restrict airflow and prevent the heating element from functioning properly. Clean or replace the air filter if necessary.
  3. Check the heating element: The heating element may be faulty and needs to be replaced. Consult the manufacturer's manual or contact the manufacturer's customer service for further assistance.
  4. Check the blower motor: The blower motor may be malfunctioning and needs to be replaced by a professional technician.
  5. Check the wiring: Check the wiring and connections, ensure that all the wiring is securely connected and that there is no damage to the wires.
  6. Check the fuses: Make sure that all the fuses are working properly and that they are not blown or tripped.
Keep in mind that attempting to repair an AC/Heater unit can be dangerous if you are not familiar with the proper procedures and safety precautions. It's best to let a professional technician handle the repair.
If the problem persists, it's recommended to contact the manufacturer's customer service or a professional technician for further assistance. They can inspect the unit and determine the cause of the problem and provide a solution.

Dryer heats in a 'no heat' selection

it sounds like you have a grounded heat element and the heat will stay on all the time,very easy to check,unplug the dryer,pull the two wires off of the heat element,with a meter touch one lead to the outside metal cover of the heater and the other lead to one of the element,then check the other side of the element the same way,if it shows continuity on one end of the element it's grounded and needs to be replaced with a new heating element.and every year or 18 months you have to clean out the dryer,i use a shop vac and a leaf blower,unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,remove the lint filter and the metal duct that the filter slides into,vac up all the lint you can see,brush out the hole where the filter goes and with a long thin screw driver dig out the lint that's in the right and left sides of the plastic slots where the filter slides in,now with the shop vac set it to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and blow the motor off and vac up the lint,after you clean out the cabinet go to the back and remove the vent line from the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,if you do this every year you'll have less problems with the dryer,your clothes will dry on time and you don't have to worry about a dryer fire.

My LG Tromm electric dryer won't heat - again.

if the high limit is popping the dryer is getting to hot,i know you say you checked the vent line but i've heard that before,when i get out i remove the vent from the back of dryer,change out the t-stat and run it with the vent line off and it runs fine,how long is the vent line?if it's a long run remove it from the back of dryer and stick a leaf blower into it,blow it out to the outside and see what comes out,also first run it on air fluff,if this is a newer dryer set it to timed dry and then you can set it to air fluff,go outside and feel how it blows,then after you blow it out check it again,if you see alot of lint blow out and it's blowing harder your all set,you should take the dryer apart and clean it and the vent line once a year and you won't have any problems like this,also you won't have to worry about a dryer fire,your clothes will dry on time and less parts will have to be changed out,also when you get it to heat again run it on air fluff,if it gets hot on air fluff you have a shorted heater,one of the coils are touching the metal box on the heater and the heater won't shut off,also you have to clean out the duct where the lint filter slides down into,if this is blocked the dryer can't push the air out the blower wheel is blocked with lint.hope this helps you out happy holidays

Dryer does not get completely hot. Kenmore 110

most likely this is due to a build up of fluff in your filter, when this happens air can not escape and youl find your washing to be warm but still wet and far from dry.
Sugest you clean your filter, any problems feel free to get back to me

Dell inspiron is turning off randomly

Sounds like overheating, daughter had same problem. Don't blow air thro cooling element on the back of the laptop, you'll blow any accumulated dust/fluff back into the fan, which will just blow back into the cooling element when the fan switches on or it'll stop the fan from rotating altogether. First turn it over and take the battery out, then remove the big L shaped cover from the bottom. There's a thick copper conductor leading to the cooling element' GENTLY lift the cooling element clear of the laptop base, using a soft brush remove any dust/fluff from the element. Then using canned air blow from the bottom of the laptop thro the fan to clear any dust/fluff. Once cleaned GENTLY push the cooling element into position and replace L shaped cover, replace battery and away you go. Daughters has been OK for a few weeks now, amazing how much fluff collects in those fans.

Hope this works! Gaz P

Lasko heater shut down

The 5840 has a problem with dust getting on the heater element and turning itself off after 2 minutes running. HERE IS THE FIX. Unplug the unit from the AC outlet, Then using a can of dusting air ( the kind you use to clean a computer key board) aim the compressed air INTO the middle louver of the upper adjustable heater vent and blow out the dust that has gotten on the heater element. ( You are actually blowing into the unit, clearing off the lint/dust that has gotten on the backside of the heater element that you can not see without openning the entire case).You can see the front of the heater element inside the louvers, It's the shinny metal part that looks like a small radiator.It sits behind the middle louver. After blowing out the dust, shake the entire unit to allow the dust to settle to the bottom of the case. Using a vacum cleaner try to vacum out any dust from the LOWER FRONT intake. Once the dust has been blown OFF the heater element, the unit will work just as new and not shut itself down!

Heater wont blow hot air anymore.

Hello,
In all probability the heating element has failed and the cost to repair would be more than the cost to replace it. Inexpensive heaters do that over time.

The dryer is not getting hot anymore

Three things usually contribute to this:

The air (lint) filter not clean of fluff. (Is the air still blowing strong from the air vent (front or rear)?)
A faulty heating element.
A faulty thermostat
