overheating 7E error code
« on: November 20, 2008, 03:49:36 PM »
My dryer is showing the 7E error code.
My kid started the dryer without any clothes in it and it is now stuck on this code.
Is there a way to re-set it?

Model S1000

Fault Error Codes

7E = Temp control error - overheating


Check:
venting for restriction
thermistor
control board
cycling thermostat (regular)

I must not understand, I saw the codes but I know it is not caused by most of the problems listed  (restriction, etc) since I know what likely caused it (running with nothing inside). I was thinking it was the control board...so that is why I was asking what to do with on control board to re-set it...
thanks, ali

I usualy solve this problem with a new temp thermister. A good thermister has about 100,000 OHMs resitance at room temperature. This drops to about 18,000 OHMs at 140 degrees running temp.If this does not fix it , the control is bad. There is no re-set. Use your exact model number to look up the correct thermister.


The thermister is covered very well in the manual (Section 3-2) as well as the  control board and other sensors on the dryer. Be sure the vent is not restricted, as this will cause a 7E as well. To eliminate this as a cause, disconnect the vent completely and run the machine.

running a Dryer with nothing inside won't make it overheat.
