Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer
I have removed the front access panel but cannot locate the thermal fuse and I do not have a manual.
The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,take off the bottom panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean the duct out,while you have the duct off on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing you'll see a 3390719 thermal fuse,remove one of the wires and check it with your meter to see if it's good,most of the time if the dryer hasn't been cleaned out the fuse will blow,the dryer runs to hot and the fuse is a safety so you don't have a fire and so the dryer doesn't run hotter than it should. vac out the inside of dryer and if you have a shop vac it blows on the other side,blow off the motor and blow the lint from the back forwards so you don't have to remove the drum,next you have to clean out the vent line,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside flapper i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,you should clean the dryer once a year,if the fuse is good you need to check with your meter the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils to see what's bad,if you need anymore help let me know,good luck,when you're reading anything out with the meter make sure you remove at least one of the wires or you'll get a false reading
