The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer no heat

unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,take off the bottom panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean the duct out,while you have the duct off on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing you'll see a 3390719 thermal fuse,remove one of the wires and check it with your meter to see if it's good,most of the time if the dryer hasn't been cleaned out the fuse will blow,the dryer runs to hot and the fuse is a safety so you don't have a fire and so the dryer doesn't run hotter than it should. vac out the inside of dryer and if you have a shop vac it blows on the other side,blow off the motor and blow the lint from the back forwards so you don't have to remove the drum,next you have to clean out the vent line,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside flapper i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,you should clean the dryer once a year,if the fuse is good you need to check with your meter the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils to see what's bad,if you need anymore help let me know,good luck,when you're reading anything out with the meter make sure you remove at least one of the wires or you'll get a false reading

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

My Kenmore series 90 Gas dryer doesn't heat up.


This dryer is what I like to call a 4 wheel drive model. Because it has wheels on the front as well as the back. To access the gas assembly you pop open the bottom panel. Strat the dryer and observe the gas assembly. You should hear a click and then the ignitor should glow. Next the flame sensor should trip and cause the ignitor to shut down. The gas will now be allowed to come out and fire off a blast.I have 2 home videos. on shows the operation and replacement of the coils. The other is of an electric model but shows how to put the dryer together.

Dryer barrel turns no heat this is a gas dryer 90 series kenmore


remove front cover, this will allow you to remove top cover, then take off drum belt and you will see the gas valve,follow the gas tube to the fire funnel and you will see the ignitor, check for continuity, if its good, then it could be a flame sensor or the control board at fault

My Kenmore 90 series dryer's pilot light is out. What can I do? I have a Kenmore 90 series gas dryer and its not getting heat.  If I look at the igniter which is a carborundum igniter and I don't see...


Hi, You should first check the fuse. If the back comes off try this:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. If the rear panel does not come off, please get me model # and I can assist you further.
Please let me know if this helps you.

Thanks
Vic
