The dryer runs fine, just never heats. What should I check for?
I'm guessing easiest/most likely would be:
1. Thermal fuse (should read 0 ohms if OK?)
2. High limit thermostat (though I wonder if this failed it wouldn't allow the dryer to turn the drum at all)
3. Heater element (what is the typical resistance of a good element?)
Let me know please.
ANSWER Hello Pop Pop. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater Y308612 and thermostats 303396 and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
