Access to blower

Problem: Sometimes the dryer heats, sometimes it doesn't. The GE repairman came by today and hooked up his computer to the dryer. Without opening the machine, he told us that the blower was not working... and for $700, he could fix it. Because it works sometimes, and doesn't work at other times, I'm hoping it is a loose wire or something. Even if I have to replace it, I can get the parts for less than $200. However, I cannot find a way to access the blower without taking the whole machine apart (ie. top panel, then side panels and drum). Anyone know how to get to the blower in a relatively easy way?

    Okay - here is the scoop. I did manage to do it myself and it worked!!!! Yes, it was complicated - mostly keeping track of the screws and where they went (after I removed a piece, I put the screw back in the hole). I had to remove the top panel, followed by the front panel. Then, the duct work had to be removed. I finally had access to the blower. I think the hardest thing was loosening the bolt that held the fan to the motor. Replaced the motor. Put it all back together (with only a few back-tracks) - and it worked. Praise God!

No on the harmony there is no easy way to take it apart. And pretty much no repair is easy on it especially the blower sorry for the bad news its a pretty advanced repair.

I have a GE DCVH660GH0BB gas dryer.That doesn't heat or sometimes heats for a short while then stops heating.

You will need to check the thermostats on the blower housing for continuity.

I Have a GE monogram 1989 refrig. Model BISB42EKB

The defrost thermostat is located at the left rear side of the evaporator coils. Sometimes you will have to deinstall the fan blower to access it and sometimes you can get your hands around the fan. Watch out for the plastic clips because if they are cold, they will be brittle. You can access through the front, after removing the fan and the shields surround it. Try the shields first, and then see if your hands are small enough to fit around the fan motor. Just warm the clips with a hair dryer so you don't have to replace.

Dryer runs but no heat. My husband is pretty smart with appliance fixes. Do you think that this thermal fuse solution would be easier enough for him to fix or should we get a repairman?

Hello,
The thermal fuse is not going to be the problem...when the thermal fuse has gone out the dryer will not start so since it runs the thermal fuse is good. The number one thing that is wrong with a gas dryer when it doesn't heat is going to be a broken igniter,this tip i wrote explains what to check when a gas dryer doesn't heat http://www.fixya.com/support/r10293028-gas_dryer_not_heating

Hooked up ge dryer 463eg6ww serial number sr746394a The electricity works but no heat? Used a voltage meter and the voltage is correct

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...

Dryer will not start

You can access the front thermal fuse if you remove the four screws holding the front panel on.((two in door and two opposite) Pull out on front top of panel, and pull off hooks on bottom after getting pulled out on top. sometimes door can stay on on its hooks, but need to take out four screws. There is a white one inch long fuse by blower that may have opened, another on heat cone which is less likely. Clean venting if this is the problem. Have unplugged, and watch out for sharp edges.....
good luck

GE Profile Dryer. Sometimes fails to heat or just air dries.

Cold solder joints on blower motor coils. Needs re-soldered. I suggest finding a buddy who knows how to take the dryer apart and knows how to solder. Luckily for me, I know how to do all of that, I had the same problem you have.

Ge harmony dryer not heating up dpgt750ec1pl

If you hear the blower ramp up when you start the dryer and if slowly ramps down or quits all together then you need to replace the blower. If the dryer heats at all then look at the blower.
