Runs fine just doesn't get hot, could this be the coils? Sometimes it gets hot for about 5 minutes then goes cold.
Answer Hello John. If the dryer is igniting and then shutting off, your coils may be bad. There is a test you can do to determine if the coils are bad. You can test the coils using a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. The two prong coil will read 1,000-1,300 ohms, and the three prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1&2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1&3. Hope this helps.

Everything works fine just no heat, took off the vent to see if it was the vent clogged and felt back of the air flow still cold. Is it the coils only that could be the problem?
Answer Hello Shannon. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
