Hi We have restrung a new heating element , now the dryer will not start. It ran fine before there just was no heat . We have tested everything with meter an all test o . We also put a new pig tail on, tested the breaker and where you plug it in to the wall. Could this be some kind of grounding issue.
ANSWER Hello Jane,
If you are testing the thermal fuses 134120900 and they are reading O then that means that they are open. They should be reading closed or should have continuity through them. If they are open then the unit will not heat. You should also check your venting from the blower motor all the way to the outside of home for restrictions that would cause thermal fuse to fail. When you test the thermostat 3204267 or thermal fuses disconnect the wires and test from each terminal on the part. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
