GE Prodigy dryer not heatijg
My GE prodigy dryer has stopped heating. I have pulled it apart and checked heating elements and thermostats for continuity and everything is checking out ok I believe.
The heating elements are reading 20.0 ohms wiring diagram calls for 19.2 ohms
There were 3 thermostats on the drum. 2 - 2wire and 1 4wire. The 2 wire ones had continuity between the terminals, the 4 wire one had continuity between the outside terminals with all wires removed. The wiring diagram calls these safety left, control inlet, and thermo hi-limit.
I also checked 1 thermostat (4wire) on the exhaust by the fan on the motor, removed all wires and tested the outside terminals for continuity. Checks ok. The wiring diagram calls this one drum outlet.
I vacuumed out all of the lint in the bottom of the tray (there wasn't much) and on the motor then blew the motor out with compressed air and vacuumed up the mess.
Tested the dryer and still no heat. What else do I need to check? I have heard there is a switch on the motor that activates the elements when the motor is up to speed, how do I test this?
I guess the last thing to do would be to test the timers, how should I go about this?
