and Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

And can you tell me where in the cycle does it heat and where in the cycle does it not heat?

I will have to ask my husband about the OHM meter......There is no consistency to where it heats or not....Just whenever it wants it seems.

ok just from what your saying it sounds as if you have a loose electrical connection some where either to the unit or in the unit.

Possible it is a thermostat but not very likely if it is very erratic .
