Frigidaire stackable dryer FEQB4000FS1 runs but no heat

11 posts in this topic

For last 2 years it has beeped while running. It would dry fine, so I ignored it. Moved into an apartment where the beeping went all over the house so I took the circuit board out of the control panel, found the speaker and removed it. Now it runs and starts but won't heat. Is there anything that I may not have hooked back up right that would cause this? Or do I need to just get a new board (please don't say that) Thanks!

READING ERROR CODES

1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.

2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.

3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.

4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.

The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid (Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter

will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code

and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.

Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.

The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash.

Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2

and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4.

The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time.

The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

Should I put the speaker back in before trying to read the codes? Or would that not make any difference?

Well, I put it back together last night, and just for grins, I put the speaker back on the board. It works fine now, no beeping or anything. I don't know what the deal was, but I'm not gonna touch it again as long as it keeps working. Thanks for the help! :thanks:

ok, it's gone back out, this time acting different. I tried to pull the codes, but nothing happens when I follow the instructions. I tried it several times.

Now, it will run for 20 minutes or so, never heating up, then stop and the lights on the right will blink repeatedly, but not in any order, like a code. Any thoughts? Am I doing it wrong, or should I just try to buy a surplus hand grenade and finish this thing off?

... lights on the right will blink repeatedly, but not in any order, like a code.

should be similar to reading the codes on a Frigidaire Washer .

I tried to hold them down like in the video, but when I let go of them, all the lights go off. It makes me wonder if there's no code. But then, my next question is, why won't it heat up? :banghead:

Never did get a code. My suspicions were correct though. It's been making a bad scraping sound, so I took the drum out and it had rubbed against the element, which split. Twisted it back together for now, going to replace the bearing and the front felt seal. Thanks for the input guys!!
