The conservator electric dryer that I have won't heat. But here's the REAL mystery. It has power to the heating coil, and power coming out of the heating coil. (110 vac)We checked with multi-meter. We have continuity with all the wiring and the limit switches. Replaced the timer. Has power coming from the house, checked the fuses and all that, The dryer is tumbling and moving, the start button works, blower works... END result no heat! Any help or advice you can give will be very much appreciated. Thank You. (Model number is CEDx463MQ1 if that helps)
I recently got burned with this one and well I know you checked the fuses but did you check the house fuses/breakers? Sometimes one blows and the other doesn't and this will only let 120v through.
Jess, the model number comes up as a Crosley electric dryer. Start first at the terminal block where the cord attaches. Should read 120V from each end to center and 240V across the two outer. If this is ok, check the thermal cut out, this will be the top limit switch on the heater housing. Should read closed. Ohm out the element itself with the wires off, should show continuity. You should have 240V across the terminals on timed dry. If that checks good, go to the motor harness. One leg of power to the element goes through that switch. Check that all the wires are intact in the harness and reseat it. Check these things first...Catriver...post back.
Dryer heating elements come in various shapes and sizes. They are all strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to heat and dry the clothes in your dryer.
