Clothes Dryer Repair
Before you call Appliance Repair Pros Chicago for service, there are a couple of things you must examine to see if you can figure out the issue with your dryer.
Is your dryer getting hotter than normal? Have a look at the lint filter. Clean it out, and start up the dryer and permit it to heat up again. If it is still getting too hot, then let it cool, unplug it, and pull the dryer out from the wall. Check the vent hose for any lint accumulation. Be sure to clean it all out before reattaching the vent hose to your wall connection.
If you have an older vent hose made of plastic, you must change it with corregated metal vent hose. Plastic vents can cause a fire if overheated.
Test the dryer out again by running it through another heat cycle. If it is still running too hot, then call us at 312-614-1677 you could have a heater element issue.
Other Symptoms with your dryer:
-If your dryer is making a loud thumping and/or squealing sound, you probably have to have the drum roller changed.
Gas Dryer Repair
When a gas dryer breaks down, there are various repair issues.
- Thermal Fuse
- Gas Coils
- Clogged Vent
A complete analysis of your dryer will figure out if the thermal fuse is running like it is suppose to and if it is drawing enough amperage. If not, then this could be the issue of not getting heat or enough heat in your dryer.
When a dryer overheats, the safety fuse will trip. Typically the thermal fuse will shut down the dryer when there are clogged up vents.
It’s is likewise possible that the vent hose is kinked and not allowing air to flow through correctly, or there could be lint accumulation in the lint filter housing at the rear of the device.
Symptoms of requiring an igniter replacement, usually consist of tumbling garments without heat, and excessive time drying and/or periodic heat.
