Some GE dryers use a non-resettable thermal fuse. It is a dime sized object with two wires attached on the top of the element housing. (Unplug dryer, take screws out or push in clips holding dryer top down at the front of the dryer top, swing top back, see thermal fuse near very back) Newer dryers use an automatic resetting thermal fuse. The replacement part for either will be the same auto resetting one. Your problem could be several other spots, however. Check for 240 volts at dryer. (not just 120) When you swing that top up, make sure the belt is there going around the drum. (if belt broke, it switches off power on most dryers) Could be a door switch, internal motor switch, timer contacts, bad start switch, burnt off / broken wire, maybe just a stripped over start knob.

If you find that the thermal fuse was the problem, you still should clean out the vent and eliminate all or as much flex duct as possible to prevent the thermal fuse from tripping again.

Whirlpool Duet Gas Dryer won't start


Appliance Repair Forums Possibly the thermal fuse.

There are alternative routes such as following toubleshooting guides or putting the dryer into diagnotic mode in order to narrow down the problem but it will may boil down to being the thermal fuse.

Appliance Repair Boise - Whirlpool Duet Dryer clicks but doesn't work.


If your Whirlpool Duet Dryer makes a clicking sound then nothing happens, you most likely have a blown thermal fuse or the control board is bad. It is possible the lid switch is bad but I haven't seen this yet.

Please be aware that sometimes a blown thermal fuse indicates a overheat condition most likely caused by a restricted or blocked vent. Get your vents cleaned every 3-4 years. Lint buildup wreaks havoc with dryers and keeps me in business.

When pressing the power button to switch on, nothing happens


You have not given us much info to work on Errol, such as what make/model you're having the problem with? Also, what country are you in?
Going back to basics, you need to check two things first.
1. does your wall-socket outlet work for other things?
2. Assuming yes to the above, the appliance fuse is of course in your plug (unless your country has different arrangements to the UK). The appliance itself will have no other 'user replaceable' fuses that are accessible.
If 1 & 2 are unsuccessful at resolving your issue, then you've likely suffered a control panel failure in your appliance (an expensive repair unless you have insurance).
Good luck

GE profile gas dryer wont turn on. There is power to the unit.


The service manual is here:
http://www.affordableappliance.com/Download%20Folder/GE_Harmony_Dryer.pdf

Things to check
1. Belt switch and belt on page 26
2. Door Switch on page 25
3. The inlet manual; (reset) safety switch on page 30
4. The outlet thermistor on page 31
These 4 switches and thermistors control power to the control panel. Find out which one has failed.

My salton iron model SCI2009 has suddenly stopped working


What usually happens with irons is that the thermal fuse blows. Before going to those lengths, do a systematic continuity test all the way along, starting with the cord and the temp control switch. Getting to the thermal fuse/s entails a complete strip down of the iron as the fuses are located on the element plate and are in fibre glass sleeving held down bu a screw and a clamp. (Some irons only have one - more expensive makes have two). check the fuse/s for continuity and replace them if they are open circuit. They are not expensive and are available at most appliance spares places. Check the heat rating on the fuse, there are different temperature fuses.

When I try to turn my dryer on, it just clicks - nothing starts up. The light turns on for a second, while I'm engaging the "start" dial, so i know there's power, but after that, nothing.
