How do you replace a thermal fuse


If the fuse inline in the wire(s) to the heating element, simply cut off the old fuse, strip back the wires a little and insert a new thermal fuse using either but crimp terminals or screw terminal strips.

My Saeco Armonia machine stopped working--no power. (Yes, it's plugged in, and I tested the outlet). How/where can I fix the power? The machine is about 4 years old, and had no other problems.


Hi
There is a thermal fuse on top of the boiler. It is in a brown colored cover held on by a clamp. You can get a new thermal fuse, they are a 182c and are put on with grimp tubes(no soldering) Slide the cover from under the clamp and slide the cover off the wire to expose the thermal fuse. cut out the old fuse but rember to leave about 1/2" of wire to crimp the new fuse on to. Then slide the cover over the fuse and under the clamp. Don't leave any exposed wire showing.

Dryer quit heating


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. I'm assuming that you have a standsrd model Whilpool dryer. You didn't specify if you have a gas or electric model so I have given you the basic instruction to repair both models.

IF GAS DRYER FOLLOW THESE STEPS: You're dryer needs a thermal fuse and or gas valve coils, and maybe an igniter all three are very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Now, if this don't solve the problem you will need a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new, if it doesn't then you will need to check the igniter. The igniter is attached to the end of the burner assymbly by one screw and a simple two wire plug. Inspect for breakage, and replace if needed.

IF ELECTRIC DRYER FOLLOW THESE STEPS: Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse and or heater element, both very simple and affordable to replace. Try replacing the thermal fuse first to see if that's the problem. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. If this don't solve your problem you will need to replace the heater element. To replace the heater element, with the back cover off of your dryer just look down and to the right of were the air blows out. You will see the electric heating unit with two fat red wires plugged into it. Unplug these wires and you will see on the sheetmetal housing two screws that hold it on, one on each side. On older elctric dryers there is only one screw that holds element in place, it is on the bottom center of element screwed in from behind. Remove screw(s) and remove old heater element. Now, lay the new element next to the old one and take notice that there is a heat sensor attached to the old element where one of the red wires unplugged from. Gently remove this sensor and install it onto the new element in the same location as the old one. If you have an older electric dryer, the old heater element doesn't have the heat sensor on it, just skip this step. Now, plug in your two red wires and re-install your heater element. Your dryer will run like new.

Happy to help, Tim.

Replacing Thermal Fuse in Sony Grand Wega KDF-E55A20


The PROPER way to replace the thermal fuse is to remove the optical block first. There are at least two recessed screws holding the block in place. BE VERY CAREFUL removing the block as it is very easy to tear/rip wires when doing so. I cannot emphasize enough NOT TO JUST THROW THE NEW THERMAL FUSE INSIDE THE CABINET!!!! The thermal fuse is a safety device mounted near the lamp to prevent overheating. Those that choose to just let the fuse "sit out in the open air" are risking greater failures and the possibility of fire.

I have a kenmore dishwasher and it stopped in the middle of a cycle and water is in the bottom. No response from the dishwasher, plug is ok and not tripped. Is there a reset button or not?


When the dishwasher stops in mid cycle and there is no console lights illuminated, then more times than not the thermal fuse has gone out. The thermal fuse is located on the power supply board which is located inside of the console. you must remove the console in order to gain access to the power supply board. the thermal fuse is white and has to wires connected to it. a black wire and a black wire w/white stripe. disconnect the power at the panel box first, before you start. you then remove the old fuse, by "plucking it up" w/ a small flat head screw driver. then you remove the two wires connected to the fuse and place the new fuse in the spot ot the old fuse and place the wires on the new fuse. any order of placement will work. There is a fuse kit that will handle the electrical surges that may have cause the fuse burn out in the first place.

Sony model KDF55WF655 blinking light 6 red flashes,no picture,no sound....
I just replaced my thermal fuse for $4.80 plus shipping handling.Took me 30 minutes to fix and 30 minutes to get dust out of TV.Take off the back of the tv about 8 screws,then remove the fan housing on the right hand side about 4 screws.If you have the new fuse you will know which wire it is ..grey and white.I found it easy to get to the other end through the front panel of the tv only 2 screws ,remove front panel and then remove cover on projection bulb and you will see the other end of the fuse clipped on.Remember to unplug tv. TV is working excellent now .
Thanks to everyone on this website.I have pictures if anyone needs them to repair it.

Pwer flashes 5 green 6 red


6 blinks is most likely thermal fuse failure. parts should be available through sony. thermal fuse is a 2 pin device under the lamp cartridge(looking from back) metal oblong looking peice that is screwed into the bottom of the tv. the new thermal fuse sent from sony will look completly different and as long as you cut the wires on the old one you can leave it in the tv and position the new fuse around the old one.
