Dryer too hot

Issue description:

The reasons listed below, which occur when the dryer overheats, are listed from most likely to least likely. Check or test each cause, starting with the most probable cause.

Heating element

Heating element block

Airflow problem

Cycling thermostat

Felt seal

Impeller

Dryer too hot

Solution:

A heating element (ten) heats the air before it enters the dryer. If the heating element is partially closed, then it can heat up continuously, even if the dryer is heated enough. When this happens, the dryer overheats. To determine if the heating element (heating element) is defective, use a multimeter to check each contact for integrity. If the heating element is shorted, replace it.

The heating element heats the passing air. If the heating element is partially closed, then it can heat up continuously, even if the dryer is heated enough. When this happens, the dryer overheats. To determine if the heating element (heating element) is defective, use a multimeter to check each contact for integrity. If the heating element is shorted, replace it.

If the air vent is clogged or partially clogged, this will restrict air flow through the dryer, significantly increasing the drying time. To ensure proper performance of the dryer, you must clean the ventilation system of the dryer at least once a year.

The circulation thermostat cycles heat on and off to maintain the correct air temperature. If the thermostat is defective, it can retain heat for too long, causing the dryer to overheat. However, this is rare. Before replacing the thermostat, check for increasingly frequent breakage parts. If you determine that all other components are working correctly, then check the thermostat with a multimeter for continuity and if it is broken, replace it.

Most dryers have a felt seal on the front and back of the drum to prevent heat leakage from it,. If the seal is worn or missing, the heat will not pass through the drum properly, resulting in too high a temperature in the dryer. Check the drum seal to make sure it is securely attached around the drum. However, this is rare. Before replacing the felt gasket, check for more and more frequently breaking parts. If you determine that all other components are working correctly, replace the felt pad (seal).

The impeller works with a drive motor to supply air to the dryer. Lint clots, socks, and small items of clothing can escape from the lint strainer and enter the impeller. In addition, the impeller sleeve may wear out, allowing it to loosen on the motor shaft. If something is blocking the impeller or it is damaged, it may take too long to dry the clothes. To determine if the impeller is working properly, open the air vent and evaluate the air flow. If the air flow is weak, check the impeller for obstructions. If there are no obstacles, then try to manually rotate the impeller and if it dangles, then replace it. If you need help with dryer repair around me, call us right now!
