The hosts, who had lost only once in their previous 16 games, came closest after a huge goalmouth scramble after an indirect free kick from Leon Bailey.
Heynckes also scored in 11 consecutive home games for Borussia Moenchengladbach in 1972/73.
Bayern Munich shrugged off the absence of flu victim Jupp Heynckes to record a battling 2-1 win over Schalke and re-establish their 18-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.
Schalke refused to buckle, however, and was rewarded for its intensity when Franco di Santo equalized before the half-hour mark.
He sprinted onto a Arjen Robben pass in the area, but instead of passing inside as the defence expected, fired home from the tightest of angles past the despairing Faehrmann.
Well earned. It's good to have you back.
Mueller said it was a lucky strike. He played in just 17 Bundesliga contests last season.
Dortmund signed the 24-year-old on loan for the rest of the season after selling top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal last month.
He started as an attacking midfielder behind Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi, who is on loan from Chelsea and scored twice on his Dortmund debut a week ago.
"We're happy we won", Stoeger said.
Batshuayi made the breakthrough with Dortmund's first shot on target and he celebrated his first home goal for the club with a somersault celebration that echoed one of the departed Aubameyang's favoured ways of marking a goal.
Dortmund lived dangerously with Hamburg threatening an equalizer, but substitute Mario Goetze sealed the win in injury time after Andre Schuerrle played him in to lift the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.
Simon Terodde equalized for Cologne with a penalty wiping out Ante Rebic's early score for Frankfurt, but quick-fire goals from Marco Russ, Simon Falette and then Marius Wolf ended the visitors' hopes of any points.
Bayer Leverkusen dropped to fifth after a shock 2-0 defeat at home to Hertha Berlin as Valentino Lazaro and Ivory Coast veteran Salomon Kalou scored.
Hannover 96 beat Freiburg 2-0 in the other game.
