I have a Frigidaire Affinity dryer model # FAQE7017KR0.
At the moment the dryer runs fine except it has no heat. What could cause this to happen? Thanks for the help in advance.
Answer Hello Brian. 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 and 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
My son said dryer won't work, runs but won't get hot . I said reset the breaker dryer started working. We just had a thunderstorm, breaker is working, dryer runs but no heat. Do I just install a thermal device same as a fuse or could it be something else ?
Answer Bobby, The thermal device/fuse is in the motor circuit. If it were at fault the motor wouldn't start or run, so that's not it. If you're sure you have 220 VAC to the dryer then you will need to check the control board 134208151 for a faulty heater relay, check for a broken heater element 131553900 or wire to the element assembly, or thermostat 3204267.
This dryer is overheating. As soon as it is turned on it gets very hot. Sometimes your can smell the clothes burning and in the back of the unit you can see burn marks. What could be the problem? thanks.
Answer Hello Phillip,
You either have a bad thermostat 3204267 or a shorted heating element 131553900. Of course there could be an issue such as a shorted wiring harness or bad timer, but this is much less likely than a thermostat or heating element failure.
It keeps displaying door open. What could be the issue?
Answer Hello Nikole,
Either a wire has come loose in the door switch circuit or the door switch 134813600 has failed.
Drys 1 load, than will not start again, also smells hot. Wait a day it will start for 1 load. Thermal limiter??
Answer Hello SM. The motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. It is over heating. Also, make sure the venting is not clogged on the dryer as well.
Is there a video for the new style dryers as well ?
Answer Hello Shawn. Sorry, we are adding videos daily, but we do not have one at this time. Thanks.
Is the cycling thermostat and the thermal limiter the same thing?
Answer Hello Shelley! No, they are not the same. The cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing and is part number 131298300. The thermal limiter is also known as the thermal fuse and is located by the element, part number 134120900. Thanks.
