Frigidaire affinity dryer only heating to 130 degrees
« on: December 22, 2010, 03:08:49 PM »
I have a Frigidaire AEQB7000EG0 Affinity dryer and in test mode it's only heating to 130 degrees. Manual says max heat should be 190. I replaced the high limit thermostat, heating element, and the thermistor checks out ok. Is 130 the hottest it gets, and if not what could be wrong?

is it 130 with or without wet clothes in the machine?

it's 130 on test mode, nothing in the machine. hold select and cancel, then CCW 5 , then hold option and cancel. Then rotating the knob CW goes through each test. First of which spins and heats the dryer while showing the temp on the LCD. I would think it would heat to its highest temp, maybe it's not supposed to. That's way I'm here :)

I don't know, I'll try putting a thermometer in front of the exhaust vent and see. 130 is what's shown on the LCD. It heats the element to 130, then shuts it off, temp drops to about 124, then it turns bad on the HE to 130. Does it indefinitely.

Is there a problem with how the dryer operates that you decided to check the temperature?

The girlfriend felt it took too long to dry, and when I checked the error codes I gave me an E04(longer than normal drying time). Manual says it's supposed to get hotter,190.
It would be awesome if someone could run a test mode on their Affinity dryer and tell me how hot theirs gets. Cause if theirs goes up to 190 then the only thing left for me to change is the control board.

First determine if the washer is spinning the laundry out relatively dry.
Next remove the exhaust vent from the rear of the dryer and run a load at least 50 minutes.
Then report back to us.
