I see that someone asked about dryer shorting / tripping breaker after changing heating element. You responded that heater may be grounded...how do you check for this?
To check for a shorted heater you will want to check the heater visually to make sure that it is not touching metal casing. If it is then it would cause to trip breaker.
I have a kenmore dryer that I just replaced heating element. It heated for almost 30 minutes then quit blowing heat. What happens if you cross the wires and do I need a thermostat now??
Answer Hello Marie,
If you cross a wire it can cause the element to burn out. You will want to test the element to make sure that it is still good. Also check your thermal fuses and thermostats by doing continuity checks on then to make sure that they are good. 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
