GE Dryer not heating and need service manual
« on: December 12, 2009, 07:07:08 PM »
Have a GE Dryer, that runs but does not heat.  I have cleared all air ways.  I am stumped on how to get to thermostats fuses and heating element.  Also I noticed that a new element with housing is $140.00.  Any ideas on what the problem could be and how to get into it.  I am not able to locate a service manual.  Thanks.

Model DBSR453EA1WW

You think I need to replace the element?  I am trying to save on having to replace too many items.  Fuse or element would be the most common I assume.

You will not know until you break it down and check it.

First check the power with a meter you have to have 240 volts across red and black...next you will have to get into the machine to check the heater and fuses.
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
