I have no heat but dryer runs.
Answer Hello Mark. 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
Dryer runs/spins, but there is no heat. I have checked the thermostat with a multi-meter and everything seems to be fine. The vents are clean, air flow is fine. Do I need a new heater element? If so, what is the part number?
Answer Hello Tim,
First you should check for 240Vac at the terminal block. If this is present, you need to open the unit with the power dis-connected to it and use an ohm meter to test the thermal cut-out, cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat, heating element, motor centrifugal switch, timer, and associated wiring. This will pinpoint which component is causing your issue.
