Thank you very much for your reply. I tried switching the trip switch off and On but still no luck. I have to go get the Ohmmeter so will be able to check the circuit and reply today evening. Also how do I check for the loose cicuit breaker? I have been suing this dryer for the past 1 1/2 year and have had no problem. Also, when the second load did not heat I discovered that the lint trap had a lot of stuff as I had forgotten to clean it from ladt time and cleaned it up.
