SOURCE: Thermal limiter stops dryer; replaced multiple times. Dryer dead.

I think you are working on the wrong end. Check the fan and inlet ductwork of the dryer, if the air isn't moving properly, it will not move enough to keep the coils and limiters cool and they will fail after working properly a few times.

Replace fuse dryer model GEQ8821LLO


Hello;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You never explained what the problem was. Dryer not running? No heat? Dryer shutting down. It could be as simple as cleaning out your dryer hot air distribution manifold. A dryer will not run if you do not have good air flow due to lint blockage. A dryer will not run if you have a bad door switch. You can Ohm components out with a multi-meter, setting the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). You should get a reading of "0" if the component is good.


1.) Dryer Door Switch - This switch replaces your dryer door's switch.
  • You may need to remove your dryer's lint screen and lint screen housing before lifting its top panel to reach its existing switch.
  • Be sure your dryer is unplugged during installation.
This Dryer Door Switch part #3406107 Cost $20.00

Dryer Door Switch - Unplug the dryer before replacing the door switch.
This Dryer Door Switch part #279782 Cost: $22.00


Thermal Cut-Off- This component is located on your heating element housing,. you may be able to access it at your hot air distribution manifold in the back of your unit.
  • When replacing your dryer's fuse, replace its thermostat, too. The thermostat should have prevented the dryer's existing fuse from blowing. The high-limit thermostat is functional to 250 degrees (Fahrenheit) and the thermal cut-off fuse to 360 degrees (Fahrenheit).
  • Install the fuse in your dryer's heater element housing box. Be sure your dryer is unplugged during installation

  • Part #: 3977394 Cost: $33.00
    25432459-jpgjqed1aonpcy4b0i04xdgb-5-9.jpg Cost: $34.00
    The high-limit thermostat replaces your dryer's thermostat.
    • The thermostat is functional to 250 degrees (Fahrenheit).
    • Install the thermostat in your dryer's heater element housing box. Be sure your dryer is unplugged during installation.
    This High-Limit Thermostat part #3390291
    Hot Air Distribution Manifold:
    This is in the back of your dryer and easily unbolted. If you are plugged up with lint your unit will shut down. Remove this component and clean the lower discharge end.

    Fde546les0 frigidaire dryer blowing thermal limiters


    If the fan is running and all duct work is clear, the control thermostat/s will need replacing as they are not switching the heaters off when up to temperature, the dryer then overheats and the thermal limiters blow.

    Error Code E65 on Frigidaire Front Loader Model #LTF2940ESO


    Thermostat issue - need a professional to complete the following:

    For electric model, check inlet thermal limiter for continuity. If thermal limiter is open, check for evidence of high temperature event and any resulting damage. If no further damage is evident, replace thermal limiter. If no problems are found with the thermal limiter, check exhaust vent system for air blockages. If no problems with vent restrictions, check/replace high limit thermostat, and retest.

    I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


    The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

    Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

    Now that I have replaced the thermister on my Frigidaire Gallery Series 2004 electric dryer not only does it not produce any heat, though the blower works, the motor which turns the drum is not working...


    Do not replace the control board unless the necessary troubleshooting is done to eliminate the other possible causes of the problem. The dryer will not heat if the motor doesn't run because the heating circuit is completed by the motor centrifugal switch which the motor activates. The problem with the motor not running must be determined and addressed first.

    Disconnect power and with the top panel removed, locate the thermal limiter, a non-resettable fuse, mounted on the rear wall of the dryer.
    jahn27_108.jpg

    Bypass the thermal limiter by disconnecting and joining the wires together. Reconnect power and start the dryer. Replace the thermal limiter along with the high-limit thermostat if the dryer starts and the problem with the motor not running is solved.

    Let us know if the dryer still doesn't start and/or the drum lamp doesn't turn on when the door is opened with the thermal limiter bypassed for further advice.

    Dryer overheats, already checked venting


    Does the unit shut off when it overheats? According to the wiring diagram it could be the Heater Relay or High Limit Thermostat. See the wiring diagram for instructions on error codes and how to obtain them. It is easily found on their website. Hope this helps

    Frigidaire dryer overheats, already checked venting


    check upline from the thermal limiter, to the temperature control.
    it's elementary, but double-check the right part number with the folks who sold you the limiter.
    after that, it's hard to say- possibly you got a bad limiter.

    My dryer will not blow hot air


    Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

    Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
