speed queen dryer help
« on: August 21, 2017, 03:37:40 PM »

Hey guys i have a speed queen dryer i'm working on and the heating element would kick on then kick right off then not come back on so i replaced the high temp thermostat and it worked fine for about five loads. now it heats up stays on for about 4-5 mins then kicks off and wont turn back on. im thinking the timer any ideals?

Possibly a regulating t-stat is not working within its normal temperature range. If the other items including the blower fan  are working to deliver the proper amount of air flow suggest you temporarily jumper the t-stat in question to see if that will fix the problem. Keep in mind that the  heater will turn off when it senses the proper temp. I doubt you have a timer problem.
