Help Wiring a Heating Element
« on: June 27, 2013, 04:46:08 PM »
I have a Samsung DV219AEW/XAA I replace a few components and disconnected the wiring to the heating element.  I made a bone head move and did not take a picture of the wiring before I disconnected everything. 

Is there a proper way for the heating element to be wired.  Right now I have a red wire coming from the control board that ties into one post of the heating element coils and the other blue wire coming from the control board is connected to the furthest back thermostat.  The other wires are simply jumping from one to another... is this good enough or is there a specific wiring diagram that has to be followed.

Thanks!

Your red wire should come from the centrifugal switch on the motor directly to the heater.
The Blue wire from the control goes to the thermal fuse,out of the fuse on black to the hi lomot stat then to the heater.

Jump,

That is how it is wired, I guess my next question would be, does it matter which posts of the thermostat, heating element, and thermal fuse the wires are connected to? 

My dryer is running but no heat, the heating element has continuity along with the other thermal fuses and thermostats so I was thinking my wiring was incorrect thus not heating the coils.

JW,

I've tried to attach a crude drawing of the wiring.  Sorry, I don't have photos, I'm still living in the stone age with a flip phone that seems to only make phone calls.  The attached drawing is the general premise of the wiring set up now.

Thanks fellas for your inputs!

If your wire drawing is correct,you are wired WRONG.
In your drawing why is the blue and red connected on the left side?
Blue should come from the control panel and red from the motor.

Sorry the red and blue are not connected... I was just trying to illustrate that those were the two main wires coming to the heating element, they are in fact not connected to one another.
