My husband just replaced the coil on our dryer. Now every time we try to dry our clothes the back of the dryer you can see the coil turning bright orange. Is this normal? We replaced it cause I saw bright orange in the top right and now the whole thing is doing it.
Answer Hello Megan,
This may be an indication of a lack of air flow. You should first check the ducting all the way to the outside for crimps and/or obstructions. If good, check the inside of the unit for a bad blower wheel or an item wrapped around the inside of the blower wheel which would hinder its' ability to move the air.
The outside cabinet of dryer is hot to touch when not running dryer for hours
Answer Hello Scott. Check the element and see if it is grounded and staying on. If so, you will need to replace the element in the unit.
