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.

Thermal fuse in dryer keeps blowing out


Hi Janet Douglas
Check to make sure your vent is clear, this can cause the overheat problem and blow the thermal fuse.
Also check to make sure the blower is not full of lint also as this can cause the same problem you are having happen.
Another thought:
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element and thermal can burn out very quickly.

My dryer wont start at all. what could it be? a thermal fuse?


It could be either the thermal fuse or the door switch. You can check the door switch usually by just pressing it in and listening for a click to know that it is engaging. Here is a link to replacing the thermal fuse.

It doesn't work at all If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with: Power from the house Door switch Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing

Keeps blowing thermal cutt-off fuse


You need to remove the front dryer panel clean dryer completely of lint . Even where the lint filter is . Also make sure the vent hose is not kinked or filled with water and lint . I changed a thermal cutt-off 3 times in a dryer within about 2 weeks time . On the last time , removed the front panel and filter housing , and a big ball of lint fell out . Cleaned vent housing and inside of dryer and no more problems since .

It is most likely a blown thermal fuse. There is a set of instructions available at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com for this problem. Specifically at:
http://www.anyonecanfixit.com/household.htm

It's a quick and easy fix. If you don't keep your lint filter cleaned out, you will likely get the overheating problem, causing your thermal fuse to blow.

Thermal Fuse


First of all stop replacing the fuses and using the dryer it could burn down your house. The problem is the vent is clogged (not necessarily in the dryer) make sure also that the vent flex is not excessively long behind the dryer and is not kinked when the dryer is pushed back.
