Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer
I have taken the dryer apart to get to the hardware. I have applied power to it and turned it on now I can see that the blower is not running and also the heating element dosn't seem to be warming up. 1st, how do I check the fuses and where are they? 2nd, if the heater is not working will that cause the blower not to run and vise versa? I could also hear a sound that sounded like a quiet little beep intermitten down near the motors.
Electric dryers are equipped with a thermal fuse or thermal cut-out. They are usually located near the heating element next to the thermostat, and typically blow when there is an overheat condition (usually caused by poor air flow attributed to clogged ducting and/or lint build-up in the dryer). The thermal fuse (or cut-out) is a one-shot type of fuse. Once it blows it is non-resettable and must be replaced. In some model dryers when the fuse trips it will only disable the heating element and the dryer drum will still rotate. However, in some dryers when the fuse trips it will also disable the drive motor. I hope this helps.
