Q:

crosley dryer no heat all sensors check good CEDS832VQ1 Crosley 29" electric dryer

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry for the problem with your Crosley Dryer CEDS832VQ1 Electric Dryer.  If the dryer runs but does not heat then the thermal fuse is okay.  If the dryer does not run then checking the thermal fuse would be the first step.  If the dryer runs but does not heat then the usual suspects would be the thermal cut-off, high limit thermostat and operating thermostat.  Each of these parts can be checked for continuity if a meter is available.  There is also a trick to checking these three particular parts if no meter is available.  The wiring diagram in the image below may be helpful to you.  The three parts to start with are locatd behind the rear panel.  Unplug the dryer first before removing the rear panel.  If you have no meter and are curious about the trick then let me know and I will provide more information.  You can also consider having the dryer repaired in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Dryer Repair.   I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional details or questios for further assistance.

I have checked all of that with my ohm meter. it all checks good. the only problem I can find is one wire coming out of the thermal fuse is grounded. the fuse is good. what can I check now?

A:

The thermal fuse should have two wires but if the electric dryer motor is running then the thermal fuse is okay. If the thermal fuse is bad the motor will not run. If all the thermostats check okay then one test you might try if comfortable doing so is voltage at the terminal block while the dryer is running. You should get 120 volts from black to white and red to white. You would get 240 volts from black to red. If you check live voltage please use extreme caution.

A:

The thermal fuse should not be grounded but if the dryer is running then the thermal fuse does not come into play as a possible problem. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing.

I would suggest you start with the thermal cut-off, the control thermostat and hi-limit thermostat. Each of these has two wires. A trick would be to remove the two ones from each part, one at a time, and join the two wires together to bypass that particular thermostat. The thermal cut-off and hi-limit would be the easiest to start with. Unplug the dryer and loin the two wires and wrap with electrical tape so nothing touches metal and run the dryer to see if it heats. If it heats then the thermostat you just bypassed is the problem. The control thermostat will have two heavy red wires and two smaller violet wires. Join the two red wires together to bypass this thermostat. If the dryer still does not heat then the problem will be with the timer or element. Only try this trick if you understand fully. I hope this helps. You can reply below with any additional details or questions.

Q:

I replace the thermal static control on my dryer now it only drys on more dry. But its not drying good, can you tell me what the problem is

A:

I can appreciate your concern over your dryer not drying well. Is your unit heating? The most common reason for a dryer not drying well is a lack of air flow. If your venting system from the back of the dryer to outside of the house is restricted due to lint, your dryers ability to dry plummets. Of coarse the lint within the dryer must be addressed as well. I've located a link that will discuss venting as well as other possibilities you should consider. Click on the link below to view the page. Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this information will be helpful and have a nice day.

Thanks for the informatio0n about your dryer model CEDS832VQ1; sorry you are having a problem. Based on your description I believe that the problem is not the dryer but instead your venting that takes the warm moist air out of your home. Here is a simple test you can perform that will determine if indeed the vent is your issue. Access behind the dryer and remove the vent hose or vent pipe from the dryer. You will have the dryer pushed away from the wall and can leave it in that position for this test. Move the vent out of the line of air flow and set the dryer on high heat and put in a load of clothes from the washer. Set the control to a standard setting you normally use and allow it to run the full cycle. If your clothes dry properly this indicates that the venting is clogged and will need to clean the vent or contact Sears Services to arrange cleaning. Your dryer is not malfunctioning, with the vent clogged no air is being moved through the clothing and the heating device short cycles to prevent damage. I have also attached a wiring diagram for your model below for your convenience. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_I hope this helps solve your problem .if you need additional help please reply with more details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.Ron H.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to check is the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. Locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both off and on 2-3 times and then see if the dryer heats. If it does not heat, the power supply should be measured where it connects to the back of the dryer. The voltage supply must measure 220 volts when measuring across the two outside terminals. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring the voltage supply unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If the voltage supply is correct (220 volts) the next thing to check would be the thermal cut-off. The thermal cut-off is located behind the rear panel. The vent hose and rear panel must be taken off to access the thermal cut-off. The thermal cut-off will have a red wire and red wire with a white stripe. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power supply before removing the rear panel.

The thermal cut-off is located on the side of the heater box near the top. The heater box will be on the right side when standing at the back of the dryer. Disconnect the two wires from the thermal cut-off and then measure across the two terminals of the thermal cut-off for continuity with an Ohm meter. If does not measure continuity, replace the thermal cut-off.

The thermal cut-off kit #279816 for Crosley dryer model CEDS832VQ1 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
