Question about Dryers
My Kenmore series 80 dryer was overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. I have replaced the fuse twice. I also replaced the heat fuse that sits next to it. I was going to replace the overheat fuse on the coil vent but it seemed to correct the problem. I just came home today and now the motor doesn't turn, yet the dryer coil heats.
If coils is heating are you sure motor isn't running or just the drum not turning ? if drum not turning suspect belt ..if motor not running but element still heating suspect element is contacting outer case ..with coil touching case 110 volts is present even without motor turning if timer is turned to heat position element will not heat to capacity but will get hot enough to eventually blow element fuse
