Default Heating element replace--clothes dryer
Model Number: YE20HV3   Brand: Magic Chef   Age: 5 - 10 years

I replaced the element and high end limit switch. When I started the dryer up it will heat for about 5 seconds, and off goes the limit, when it cools down try again with same results.

Thanks

Soupy

Check the EXHAUST coming out of the dryer, Does it blow strong? if not, check the BLOWER WHEEL!!!!

Are you checking this with the door open? The door must be closed for the heat to cycle correctly!!!

So what you're telling me is, that the element cycles during the drying time. I thought that the element would stay on for a longer time during drying. So at that rate it seems to be working fine as there is plenty of heat and air coming out the discharge.

Thanks

The door needs to be closed so that the airflow across the heater and the high limit thermostat keeps the high limit from opening. It sounds like your all set!!!
