Make sure all air flow passages are clear. On both sides of the fan, the incoming air vent and the exhaust air vent, all the way to out side of the home.

SOURCE: where is the thermal fuse located?

In the back of the dryer. Look for the coiled heaters and follow the lead wires back to the fuse.

SOURCE: Maytag performa Keeps blowing Thermal Fuse. Vents

something is still plugged with lint,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is on top remove the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the lint filter and the two screws in front of it and remove the four screws and clean out the duct,if the filter is in front take off the bottom panel,remove the filter and clean the duct,also vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,when the dryer gets to hot the thermal fuse pops as a safety so you still have a block somewhere

The air flow past the thermal fuse is too hot. The air flow cools the heater coil area. Check the air passages from the lint filter to the heator coil housing for lint balls blocking the flow and letting the area around the fuse get too hot.

My gas clothes dryer is working,but it is not blowing hot air


The thermostat or thermal fuse could be blown. Usually happens when lint buildup blocks the exhaust exit & the heat stays inside the machine. So to prevent a fire, the thermal fuse or thermostat blows. You would have to enter your model # on google to find links to parts breakdown.

Neptune dryer MDE6700AZW over heating and blowing the thermal fuse.....air flow is good no blockage what so ever?


You will need to check the air passage on the incoming side of the fan also. Most will check the exhaust side and clear it out, but if the incoming side has obstructions it will not allow air flow either.

Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

Your unit has a thermal fuse on it, that blows when it gets to hot. BUT that is an indication that something else is wrong. A blown thermal fuse would cause your symptoms.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

My dryer smells hot and shuts off it is a Maytag model LDE8406ACE


This happens when the dryer gets too hot and a thermal breaker (or thermal fuse) kicks in. The most likely problem is that the exhaust vent for the dryer is plugged up with lint either within the dryer itself or in the part that is in your wall and exits someplace outside (could be as far as the roof). When the hot air can't escape the dryer overheats and shuts itself off to prevent a fire.

Dryer Thermal Fuse


air flow could be the issue or if your heater itself is grounded against the cabinet i think your unit is getting to hot check all your vent lines if you have good air flow check the heater try taking the vent totally off for a few cycles and see if the fuse blows agian
