LG Dyer blows 30amp fuse frequently

After only 1 year of owning and using lightly our LG Electric Dryer Model DLE2514W began to blow the 30 amp fuse for it in the fuse box. We love this Dryer best we ever had and at a great price. I replaced the fuse box with a circuit breaker rated for 30 amps a week ago and so far have had no problems. I check the lint trap and ducts frequently and keep them clean and lint free.
Should I assume that it was just the 30 amp fuse that had caused this problem.?? Has anyone else had this happen to them with a LG Electric Dryer blowing out 30 amp fuses frequently? When it got to the point that I was replacing a 30 amp fuse 3 times a week I decided to replace the fuse box with a circuit breaker. That seems to work so far. Any help/thoughts appreciated alot.

    Thanks Rickzilla. It is working now with no problems and I figured it saved me money by replacing with a circuit breaker. Those fuses were costing me about $3 each and I was blowing 3 sometimes 5 per week. It was getting old replacing them and costing money. The Circuit Breaker parts cost about $48. My best---

Hello davidkado,
There is a high probability that when you replaced your fuse box to circuit breakers that the wiring at the fuse box was retightened. If your dryer had been operating Ok for the better part of a year and then you started to blow fuses on a regular basis.. chances are the wiring coming from the fuse box tap was becoming loose from thermal expansion and contraction and that by changing to a breaker system.. your wiring was cut and reterminated to fit the breaker tap. I suspect you won't be having any additional problems...
Regards,
Rick

The fuse for the heat keeps blowing but dryer runs


if its an old round buss fuse that screws in the panel(especially an old 60 amp panel),sometimes the center where the fuse lands the insulation gets weak in this area and lets it arc over when the dryer calls for current to heat the element replace this with a sub box and breaker set-up.the other thing it can be is the element is touching the units case and grounding out causing the same problem

My hotpoint tc71 drier blows the plug fuse when switched on what is the problem please


boy the list could be very long but this dyer draws a large amount of current (amps) it should be on its own circuit nothing else on the line at least when the dryer is running you said "fuse" if it is blowing a fuse as opposed to a breaker you could try a Time Delay fuse 15 amps might help please do not put a larger fuse in (even though it fits) the wire size dictates the size of the fuse and increasing fuse size with out changing the wire size to accomodate will create a fire hazzard good luck

New dryer keep blowing 30 amp fuses


your problem (especially if you are using screw-in "plug fuses") i.e. BUSS fuses and cartridge fuses they get hot and with time the insulating disc that insulates hot from neutral (grnd) breaks down and with dryer current draw it arcs over and in summer its more humid which contributes to moisture,have a new sub(pony) panel if you have no room for another 240volt circuit in your main panel,that should cure your trouble

Wiper fuse keeps blowing intermittently.


It looks like the wire circuit for the wiper motor is touching the car body when shaken so the only thing you can do is shake the wires and terminals yourself while engine is running then maybe you can pinpoint where the earthing is.

How do you replace the fuse when your dryer tumbles but does not heat? it is a front load frigidare affinity electric dryer model LEQ700SE0


The fuses or breaker is located in your homes fusebox. An electric dryer requires 240 volts and 2-30amp fuses, or 1-30amp breaker. Locate your fusebox and determine if you have fuses or breakers. If fuses, then I recommend changing both 30 amp fuses to eliminate any possibility of being wrong. If it uses a breaker,(If not labled, look for the number 30 on a breaker). Flip the breaker to the OFF position, then back to the ON position. Repeat this action if there are more than 1-30 amp breakers and your dryer still doesn't heat.
