Default Replaced heater, now melting smell + sparking sound
Model Number: MDE2400AYW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years

Hello everyone,

I have an electric Maytag MDE2400AYW dryer who's heater (coil) went. I purchased a new one using the part number obtained from sears' parts department (the original retailer for the dryer). The part number used is 34001073. The heater coil looks very similar to the one removed in that they are both 240v, 1000w specifications and have the same plug connections assembly, etc.

After installation, which is simple on this model dryer, the a sparking sound came from the dryer as well as a pungant burning smell. I immediately shut off the power, let the dryer cool (just incase) and took out the heat coil. It looked fresh from the package. The wiring as well showed no signs of burning. The burning smell was throughout the dryer's interior.

Here's the user manual:

Here's the installation manual:

I can supply images of the new installed part and the old part.

I'm just confused as to why this is occuring since installation was rather easy and no issues occured prior to the heat coil going. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Steve
