Sorry, didn't realize you had a gas dryer. (Dissregard looking for 240 volts, only need 120 for gas model) There are still two thermostats on the back area I described, but not at top center. They both should have continuity. Again, make sure belt is not broken as this would kill power to motor, as would a door switch problem.

    to remove top: use a putty knife to push the clips back, releasing the top. Push in the seem where the top meets the front panel, about two inches in from each side. Swing top back. An unbroken belt will be visible going around the drum. No belt there = broken belt. Thermo's (other than the cycling thermo) are near the top back wall of the dryer, right side.

    should be continuity across thermos if they are good.

    About the size of a half dollar or smaller ones are dime sized, with two wires cliped onto them.

If the dryer inside light comes on can the thermal fuse ok

No relations at all......

Light comes on means there is power and your door is open.

Thermal fuse failure means there is no heat. No current going through your heating circuit. Most models and brands will still turn the drum without heat. But there are some models thermal fuse will completely shut the power to heating circuit and drum motor. Like KENMORE certain dryers made by Whirlpool corporation

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.

Dryer won't start

This usually caused by a blown thermal fuse on the blower housing located behind the rear access panel. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and if it blows, power to the motor is terminated and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run.

Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then remove the rear access panel. Locate the thermal fuse then bypass it for troubleshooting purposes.


Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and joining it together. Insulate properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

Clean the lint filter and make sure the vent system is not restricted then replace the thermal fuse including the cycling thermostat (thermistor for other models) as a standard operating procedure and preventive measure. The thermal fuse usually cuts out due to a failed cycling thermostat(thermistor for other models).

If this is a gas dryer the MOST COMMON problem would be a thermal fuse usually located in the back of the dryer. you would have to remove the back panel their is only 9 screws securing it. The thermal fuse is going to be white with 2 wires and 1 screw . Unplug the dryer remove the wires from thermal fuse and put them together temporary using tape make sure metal ends make contact and they do not touch any thing else. plug dryer back in and turn on. if every thing works than replace the thermal fuse and clean out your duct

GE DVLR223 Not Heating--Is there a reset?

There is no reset. What he did was probably replace the thermal fuse. Why did he not clean it out for ya? Anyway when the thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer or the heat won't work. If you can open the dryer up by removing the front panel, you can test your thermal fuse for continuity. If none replace it. While you have the front off undo your belt and remove the 3 screws that secure the rear of the drum (inside drum in middle at back) pull drum out and make sure heat element is not broken. Here is a site for your dryer check it out. Good Luck

G.e. Profile gas dryer, wont turn on but has power

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.
