after running 2 minutes in heat cycles only stops can be started up
G.E. DRYER MOD. DCVH680EJ1MS stops after running 2 minutes in heat cycles only ,but can be started back up only to stop after another 2 minutes. Dryer will run fine in non heat cycles.What's up with that?
@kjim check the cycling thermostat (outlet thermistor). It cycles the heat on and off to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective, it may keep the heat on too long, causing the dryer to get too hot and to shut down. You can test the thermostat by using a multimeter to check it for continuity. If it does not have continuity, replace it. You also want to check the outlet thermistor resistance to make sure that it is good. The resistance at 69 degrees would be 118k-122K ohms, at 77 degrees would be 98K to 102K ohms and at 86 degrees would be 78k to 82K ohms of resistance. If the thermistor does not fall into these ranges then the thermistor would be faulty and need to be replaced.
