Dryers - Dryer No Heat

No heat - electric dryer
  • Dryer should be on a separate 220 volt outlet.
  • Check circuit breaker and fuses.
  • Dryer requires a 30 amp dual breaker or two 30 amp fuses.
If you have a circuit breaker:
  • Turn the breaker to the OFF position and then back on again. (This will eliminate a problem associated with the breaker being partially tripped, but appearing to be ON.)
Note: An electric dryer may run with a partial voltage of 110 volts, but it will not heat unless it has 220 volts, 30 amps.

No heat - gas dryer
  • Dryer should be on a separate 120 volt outlet.
  • Check circuit breaker and fuses.
  • Check glo-bar behind trap door on lower front corner of some models.

  • Note: For those models without a trapdoor, the dryer front will have to be removed to access the burner assembly.
  • If glo-bar does activate when heating cycle is selected, GE recommentds to contact service. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service or schedule a service appointment on-line.
  • There may also be shutoff valves in the gas line before it connects to the dryer. Check to make sure they are turned on.
  • Make sure that a heated drying cycle has been selected, not Fluff or Air cycle.
