I have low to no heat in my dryer. I've replaced the heating element and the thermostat. All ready so what do I look for now?
Answer Hello Clockman,
First, verify there is 240Vac supplied to the unit where the power cord connects. If this is good, check the exhaust duct for crimps or clogs. This will cycle the thermostats off prematurely and it takes a long time for them to turn back on when the duct is the issue. Let us know what you find if further assistance is necessary.
Heat not working. What should I check first and second?
Answer Hello Glen. 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
I have an amana electric dryer everything works but theres no heat model # ned7200tw what should I check first and second thanks
Check to make sure that you are getting 240 vac to the unit from the power supply. Check the thermal fuse to make sure that it has continuity. If there is no continuity then replace the thermal fuse. Check the heater to make sure that it is good by visually checking to make sure that it is not broken. Disconnect the power and remove 1 wire from the heater and plug unit back in and turn the unit on and test each wire to the heater to chassis ground. Whichever side does not have power. That is the side that you want to trace back.
