My dryer starts and runs about 30 seconds then turns off. It's like went it get hot, it turns off.
Answer Hello Thomas. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the motor is bad and will need to be replaced if it is overheating in the unit.
Hello My dryer is running and blowing but is not heating. I have tested every part there is to be tested and each has buzzed when using the ohm meter. Any other suggestions?
Answer Hello Karen. If the heater and all thermostats are good, you will need to test and see if there is power coming from the timer or the motor on the unit to the heater. This will determine if the timer or the motor is bad on the unit. 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
Have a dryer that is not heating up. Have watched several of the videos and believe the thermal cut-off is bad.(no continuity)...am I correct. Also I'm not sure what terminals to test accross for continuity on the heating element.
Answer Hello Randy,
If no continuity is read through the thermal cut-out, it will need to be replaced. Be aware that the thermal cutout is included in a kit which also includes the high limit thermostat. The reason is because the high limit thermostat should open before the thermal cut-out. If the thermal cut-out is opened, it indicates a failure of the high limit thermostat and they both should be changed to avoid the possibility of a fire hazard.
Also, be aware that the thermal cut-out will often fail in cases of a crimped, clogged, or excessively long exhaust duct.
I have replaced the thermal fuse and heating element but the dryer still isn't heating up. Which thermostat should be replaced? Or what else should I check?
You will want to check the high limit thermostat to make sure that it is not showing open. Also check to make sure that you are getting power to the heating element. Check each leg of the heater to see if you are getting 120 vac. If not then you will want to trace back to find where you are loosing power. Check the motor switch to make sure that you are not loosing power at the switch.
