Where is the thermal fuse located on this dryer? please


Hello Leslie

I don't know what is the brand of you dryer. I will make you a preference this brand.

In GE dryers, the thermal fuse--sometimes called a safety thermostat--is located behind the drum on the inside of the dryer. To access the thermal fuse you will need to open the dryer from the top. Though it may sound a bit daunting, opening the top of the dryer to reveal its inner workings is surprisingly simple. To open the dryer top you will need a flat-head screwdriver, putty knife or similar tool. Insert the screwdriver or putty knife underneath the dryer's top panel. Slide the putty knife along the bottom of the panel until you locate the two clips that hold it in place. These clips are usually located about four inches in from either side of the top dryer panel. Apply pressure to the clips to release them. Once the clips have been released, lift up the top panel and use the supports to keep it upright. Look inside the dryer, behind the drum, to find what looks like a round metal pan. This metal pan is actually the dryer's heating element housing. The thermal fuse will be located next to the heating element housing. Look for a white strip with two wires connected to it and you've located the thermal fuse in your GE dryer.

Push to start switch only works when held in.


Hi, THe control panel has an end cap that needs to be popped off. Just pull the end cap from the top and it should release. Then you will find a screw on each end that needs to be removed. Now the control panel will raise up and rest on the hinges.
This switch should not have an effect on heating.
Remove the front lower front panel and you can test the heating element. Check voltage to the element and you should get 240V. If there is now voltage, check each of the thermostats and the fuse for continuity. If the thermostats or fuse have no continuity, replace it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Go thru the back to access the push to start via 1/4 inch screws. More than likely the push to start isnt the problem with the heat issue. i would lean towards the motor relay and the heater relays that are on this unit

WIRING DIAGRAM


The following link explains the proper wiring scheme for installing a 220VAC power cord to an appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

Make sure you also have a dedicated outlet and power source for your dryer. This means a single outlet with a single circuit breaker. Most homes are constructed this way to ensure safe operation of the appliance and to prevent improper loading. If you have questions, please let me know.

As far as a wiring diagram is concerned, most manufacturers place a schematic drawing inside the operator console of the appliance for troublshooting purposes. I hope this helps.

depending on your dryer make and model, you may have a thermal limiter or a high temp fuse that went out. Also, you may need to look into new thermostat for it. If I had the make and model of the dryer, I'd be able to be more specific.

Need to Reset Fuse


It is possible that there is a wire touching when the dryer vibrates while running. The dryer top on some models opens by inserting a screwdriver or other thin object into the seam between the dryer to and the front of the dryer. It will hinge open. There is a door switch with wires running to it. Sometimes these wires rub on the drum causing a short. Also check for other wires that may be touching inside of the back of the dryer. Your heating element could be going bad or there could be a loose connection with the wires going to the element. Also some models will trip the circuit breaker if a load is really wet. Check to see if your washing machine is not getting enough water out of the clothes.
