Heating coil won't cycle.
Answer Hello Jacko. Check and see if the element is touching metal and is grounded out.
Dryer symptoms are intermittent hot, warm or cold air at the start of the drying cycle. The startup temperature will remain through the drying cycle. I've changed the cycling and hi-limit thermostats but sysptoms persist. What should I try next?
Answer John, Check and make sure the line cord and wiring at the termunal block on the back of the dryer is all proper and tight. Make sure you have the proper voltage from L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, while the dryer is running and heating. Check and make sure the vent hood flapper is not stuck open and allowing cold air to blow back into the blower assembly.
dryer won't start up. I replaced switch and I hear the click when I turn on, but nothing else happens.
Answer Andy, The 279816 Thermal fuse kit controls the power to the heater, so the dryer should run, but no heat. The other thermal fuse 3392519 is located on the blower housing and controls the power to the motor. You need to check or replace this fuse first for a no start/run complaint.
I have replaced element hi line themostat kit and still no heat.
Answer Hello John. 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
