A fuse is tested using the continuity or resistance (ohm) setting on a multimeter.

Disconnect the power to the dryer. Disconnect the leads to the fuse. With the meter set on continuity, the meter should beep - if you set to ohms, you should read 0 ohms across the terminals of the fuse. If you read infinity, the fuse is bad.

I need to replacement fuse for Kenmore electric dryer. model number 110.62212101

Sears Parts Direct lists all of the parts for the 110.62212101 here: . If you need the dryer thermal fuse (3392519), that is part 9 on the Bulkhead diagram. The direct link to the part is . They also sell thermal fuse kit, .

Other vendors will have the part since the dryer is made by Whirlpool. Whirlpool used the parts in many models.

I hope this helps.

Kenmore elite 110.7703 no heat

Hi there

From the model number it seems this machine was made by Whirlpool for Kenmore. The thermal fuse is on front bottom near the blower wheel.
a) Pop open the front panel.
b) Then remove front door panel by removing the two secrews
c) Remember to disengage the door switch wiring
d) you will see the thermal fuse near the blower compartment.
e) If thermal fuse is burned out then it should not have continuity on OHMS scale on a multimeter.

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

Have a Kenmore model # 97591240. Dryer is not

Hi, if the igniter is not glowing then the problem will be with the thermal fuse. I'm going to assume this is a whirlpool made Kenmore since you did not provide the full model number so please remember this when rating. If you remove the back from the dryer and look down and to the left you will see the thermal fuse it looks like this:

Pull the wires off and test it with your ohms meter. If as I suspect it reads open replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Kenmore gas dryer model #76812690 will not heat.

does the dryer heat initially when you first turn on the dryer Or no heat at all?

the first thing i would check is tthe thermal fuse thats located on the back of the unit. test it with a multimeter and see if it has continuity, if it doesnt then replace that and your operating thermostat. the check to be sure you venting to the outside of your house is not clogged
