SOURCE: Thermal fuse keeps blowing

Mr. Larry (guru?)
The thermal fuse is just that It doesn't protect the circuit from over current although it certainly can open in that case. It is there to protect the board from overheating , thus the term thermal. The dishwasher could be allowing the water to heat too hot or the water heater in the home is turned up too much. The heater could also be shorted to case thus allowing it to be on even though the control is not calling for it especially if the polarity is incorrect to the dishwasher or the relay on the board could be welded closed so that the heater can't turn off even though the thermostat is satisfied. The best thing is to get a person who can check these things. You don't necessarily need to change the board with a fuse. I have changed many fuses with no other problems and verified that the machine was still working years later. sometimes the fuse just blows!

SOURCE: thermal fuse has blown 2 times

Check for a bad ground wire. Also while you are check the ground check all the other wires to make sure that they are seated properly and nothing has come lose or te wire plastic has come off or rubbed off and grounding itself out

SOURCE: The thermal fuse blows out midcycle. It used to occur about every 6 months but is getting more frequent

The first thing I would inspect is the heating element for damage that may beginning to short out.

If the element checks out good, a failing motor could blow the fuse.

If the motor checks out, look for shorts in the wiring both in the door and under the unit.

It is hard to be more specific without knowing the make & model and the dishwashers approximate age (years.)

Good Luck! Please report back what you found, OK?

Thermal fuse blown on kenmore dryer what is the cause


The thermal fuse blows when the vent gets restricted and builds up too much heat. After it gets to a certain point the thermal fuse blows. Clean out the vent, keep the lint trap clean, and hopefully your problems will go away.

Thermal fuse keeps blowing. Dryer heats up too


The problem will be either your vent is stopped up or the cycling thermostat and the high limit thermostat are bad. If the vent is clean, both the cycling thermostat and the high limit thermostat are welded closed. Both are supost to open to avoid over heating. Go to www.partselect.com and enter your complete model number. It will bring up diagrams of you machine. From there you can find the parts ans also order them if you want to. Good luck.

Model 110.68622700 keeps blowing thermal fuse.changed fuse a month ago


If the thermal fuse is blowing, it's because the inner dryer is getting too hot. The control thermostat is the likely culprit. It's not cycling the heating element is staying on continuously. I would change the operating thermostat. If you go to repairclinic.com., put in your make and model, it will pull up all the parts for your machine.

Keep blowing fuses


hi, make sure you are using a time delay fuse and not a regular fuse. this may be the reason why the fuse keeps blowing out on your dryer.
