1 Answer

I have a leisure range cooker. model number CMTF99R.The oven RHSis not Heating up. the fan is working and the thermostat light is coming on.

I have checked the heating element and got a reading of 43ohms continuity and a reading of infinity down to earth. what else could it be?

Check for voltage at the element, could be a hi-limit thermostat or a failure at the control board.... You may find you are missing one leg (half) of the 240VAC required to power the elements

Timer ticking and heating element activating when dryer is off


One thing to check is if the heater is shorted to frame.Remove the wires and do the checking. If that is fine then the only way the heat can come on at all is IF the motor is running. So check between terminals one and 2 for continuity with the motor NOT running. If you get a reading then your motors cent switch is stuck. You can sometimes oil the springloaded sliding switch but most times the springs have broke on it.

Hotpoint wf860 flashing f-03


Hi.

F-03 means that there is an heating system problem.

The heating system consists in the heater element and in a thermistor, located near to the element. The parts are located behind the panel at the back of the washer. Both element and thermostat can be tested using a mulitimeter to check if they have continuity (Ohms reading across part's terminals returns infinity).

Here a movie showing how to reach the heating element:

I have a Whirlpool electric dryer MOD WED5540S!) SER MU2124790 TYPE DWJR-ELE-2406026-FM54 the dryer runs good, but will not heat. I have checked the air flow and its clear. I've checked all...


Limit thermostat , heres how you check thermostats Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. I strongly recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.

Dryer will not produce heat to dry clothes


you first need to access the heating element case and with a multi-meter check the element for 50-250 ohms,then the hi-limit switch and cycling switch on this case,then on the dryer exhaust vent housing theres a thermal-fuse,check this for continuity all components will check 0 or near 0 ohms=good/infinity,no reading=bad/except the element and the above is just an approximation as each element has its own resistance

My Belling E641 keeps tripping out. Now the trip


You evidently have an earth fault on the cooker i.e one of the heating elements has failed and the trip switch is operating to prevent you getting a shock.

Most likely it is one of the radiant rings that is at fault but it could also be an oven element.

There is no easy way to tell without checking with a multi-meter for earth continuity between each element and the cooker frame, you can do this with the power off and the meter set to resistance or continuity test.

There should be no reading between healthy elements and earth but a faulty element will normally show a reading when the probe touches the cooker frame.

I need to replace the bottom element in my oven


You need to check the heating element for continuity and the thermistor for continuity. Use an ohmmeter or multimeter to check. The element should not be any reading over 24 ohms for a 220-250V supply and not over 12 ohms for a 110Vac supply. A good tip is to take digital photos of the job before starting on removing and testing wiring etc so that you can refer back to it if you have to replace any items or forget which wires attach to any particular terminal etc.

To test and replace the element:

  1. Turning off the mains power to the oven.
  2. Remove the lower back panel. Fan assisted ovens will have a coiled 2 or 3 turn element around the outside of the fan.
  3. Remove the 2 power connectors to the grill element if one is fitted.
  4. Check the element resistance reading on the main oven heating element and not the grill element.
  5. The thermistor or fusible link is located on top of the oven cavity if fitted and has two wires attached to it - most likely to be red and black or both white wires.
  6. Remove the earthing wire to the main oven heating element screw terminal.
  7. Unscrew the grill element securing screws(s) - there will be 1 or 2 depending on the element fitted to your oven. Do this from inside the oven cavity itself.
  8. Refit the new element (make sure it has the same mounting screw holes as the one you want to remove) then secure it.
  9. Reconnect the earthing wire to the element screw post.
  10. Make sure that neither of the element tags touch the chassis - check with a continuity tester of ohm meter and adjust if required.
  11. Reconnect the power cables to the main oven heating element.
  12. Reconnect the power cables to the grill element if one is fitted.
  13. Reconnect the power and check that the element works correctly.
  14. Disconnect the mains power again and replace the rear panel(s).
  15. Reconnect the mains power and recheck that the oven, and if appropriate the grill, functions correctly.

F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine WT761? The original fault on the machine was that it was tripping out and taking out a resetable fuse in my fuse box a few seconds after turning the machine...


If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

My 700 series dryer 67741600 will not heat is it the heating element or could it be something elsse


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.


To test the thermostats or fuse, set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, the thermostats should have a reading of zero. When the thermostats are heated to their limit temperature, they should switch off and you should get a reading of infinity. The fuse should be tested at room temperature for continuity.


Additional Check points.

  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the timer motor

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Working but no heat


it sounds like your heating element is gone bad. there is no heat if they burn out or get corroded

Dryer turns on doesnt dry


Suspect heating element or thermal fuse. The heating element and fuse can be checked with an ohm meter. The reading should be 0-2 ohms on both devices. If heating element reads infinity (nothing) replace heating element and fuse. If the fuse reads infinity then replace the fuse.
