Unable to find a replacement for Frigidaire heating element 131475400 4.5 KW 240V. What element can I substitute?
Answer Hello Dave. Based on the part number you provided, you will need to order and replace part number 131553900 for the element in the unit.
The dryer is heating but have to run the loads twice to get them dry. Should I replace the Heater Assembly (131475320) or is it something else?
Answer Hello Ian, It is more likely a retricted vent problem. Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged. We sell a cleaning brush TJ103 that works great for getting into the duct to clean out lint. Here's a link to help you look further if you still have an issue. Hope this helps! http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/dryer-repair-help.html#electric
Dryer had no heat. Bought the heat element and still no heat. Checked 240 wiring. Wiring is right...help !!!
Answer Hello Connie. 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 thermostats 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. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
