Re: No heat when drying clothes. Where is the fuses on a...
There are two thermal fuses, but if the fuse has gone - there will be another fault Replacing them without sorting the fault will only lead to them going again.
Fuses will blow if -
The fan motor stops working
The vents are blocked
The heating element overheats
There is an electrical fault
These need checking first.
The fuses are usually clipped into a metal frame over the heater coil - which is on the top of the drum.
Disconnect the machine and remove the top cover to see them.
Look for a picture of replacements online so you know what to look for.

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer heats and will occasionally not heat when drying the cloths. This could be a possible issue with your thermostat or control board. I would recommend performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to have a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help your avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
Hello - Typically it indicates a faulty issue with the timeout program. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. Technician will check for anything that would cause extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closet with solid door, bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If dryer operates normally after it has be diagnose and code returns, the main control will possibly need replacing.
* Volt meter * Clean cloths * Waste bin * Replacement fuse (optional)
1. Secure the power cord in the Frigidaire dryer as well as the power outlet if the dryer does not start. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker if necessary. 2. Check the fuse if there is power but no heat, as dryers need two fuses in order to operate properly. Replace the fuse if necessary. Select heated cycles if items are wet and cold after drying. 3. Open the dryer door and slide out the lint screen if the dryer seems to be taking a long time to operate. Clean off the lint and return the lint screen to the unit. Use a volt meter to check the power outlet for proper electricity, which should be 240 volts or more. Clean the exhaust hood outside the home and straighten the exhaust vent if bent. 4. Keep the load size medium and distribute pieces evenly inside the drum if items are wrinkled or damp. Increase drying time or temperature as necessary. 5. Check pockets for hard objects before putting pieces in the dryer, as items can create scratches or chips inside the drum and cause a clinking noise during use. 6. Contact Frigidaire for assistance if the problem continues.
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things— Electric Dryer--- 1.Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. 2.Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively. 3.Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker. 4.Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Well first of all you can check out power from the house - check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. After then you can check the heating element - Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it, note: electric heating elements are not repairable. Further you can check the thermal fuse - On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse which is about an inch long, is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it.
Hi Thanks for
using FixYa. Error code AD means air/auto dry. This
type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break
disengaging the heating element, there for the dryer has a busted heating element,
you’ll need to replace it then it should be good to go. Normally runs parts and
labor about 150. Please do accept the solution if the issue is
resolved or else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
Is it gas or electric? It could have a bad timer, heating element, power problem, circuit breaker could have tripped, or blown fuse or burnt wires inside dryer. I believe the top pops off from inserting a screw driver between the top and front dryer frame and pushing in 2 clamps located near each side. Then the front unscrews from the inside. Or a bottom panel might come off same way underneath the door.
1. Gas valve coilsIgniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.
Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.
2. Thermal fuse Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
3. Igniter Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.
Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).
4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor) Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
