Thermal fuse for Whirlpool Quiet Partner II

I have replaced the thermal fuse for the dishwahser above twice now. First time i did not replace the wires and it went out again. Next time i did replace the wires and it just went out again. What could be causing our thermal fuse to continue to blow?

    I have noticed that mine goes out only when I use the delayed start.

While it is possible that something could be drawing too much current, it is not likely to cause the "thermal" fuse to blow. what i would like to know is, did you use the wiring kit made by whirlpool to replace the wiring? if not then you probably arent getting a good enough connection on the thermal fuse itself.
what causes a thermal fuse to fail is ... get this... too much heat. so a loose connection is the most likely cause. check with your parts house and see if they can find the right repair kit that comes with a wiring replacement with the thermal fuse.

Mantal, first thing I would check would be the power connections. I have seen a lot of these fuses blown because of loose wire nuts to line and nuetral. If that is ok, suspect one of the componets overheating. Ohm out the motor windings, with the capacitor disconnected. Should be around 3-7 ohms, run windings, 6-10 aux. windings. Check the tech sheet behind the toe panel to make sure. Next, heater element. Look for damaged element. Should ohm at 10 to 30 ohms. Leads disconnected, power off on all tests. Look for any loose connection on any harnesses. Catriver

Are you sure the buttons were the problem?
The problem with mine was the thermal fuse in the transformer. The hard part was taking the darned thing apart. I found instructions here. I couldn't find the replacement part, but I did find an alternate replacement. The NTE8020 is a good substitute. I just ordered one from Mouser for $6.25.

After installation and first test all went well. The next morning however had revealed it died again.

Round two.

So by this time I'm confident the transformer is getting warm, though 130F isn't really hot for a transformer (which is the limit of the thermal fuse). So instead of replacing the fuse again with a higher value, I decided to simply install a switch in place if the thermal fuse. I only turn on the unit to make my coffee/tea so there's no time for the transformer to get too hot. It has been running great for 3 months now.

The Breville BOV650XL will not power on.


I had the same problem with my Breville B0V650XL. It worked fine at breakfast, then wouldn't turn on the next time I tried to use it. Judging by the comments on this site, this appears be a common problem with this and many other Breville products.

I fixed my toaster oven by replacing the thermal fuse assembly. This part costs $4.39 on ereplacementparts.com. It's a shame that an expensive toaster oven is rendered useless by the failure of such a cheap part.

Replacing the thermal fuse itself is very simple - you'll need a small wiring nut and a phillips screw driver. Unfortunately, getting to the part requires removing the oven cover and about 40 screws. A long, magentic scewdriver is essential for parts of this job. It took me about 1 hour to fix my oven - two minutes to replace the fuse and the rest of the time to remove and replace the oven cover.

Washer went dead. replaced thermal fuse and it worked for about a week and went dead again. Before going dead it seemed to take it a long time to do a load of dishes. The last load ran 1 1/2 hours and...


sounds like you have a bad control board on unit.and the reason the thermal fuse went out is one of the relays are getting stuck on unit. before long the fuse will go bad again when the resistance level gets to high again. i would replace the control board and you should be fine...good luck to you...

well it to me sounds like the AF, interface on the Brain board is faulty? I mean if you have replaced the thermal fuse, twice, & I guess you replaced it and it worked... for a while or? I mean thats all there is, sensor.... to ... Interface ....to.... Brain (to interpret and action.)
If it is the thermal fuses alone, perhaps they are too low a temp setting? you could safely try the next range up?

It is a gas dryer and I have had a tech out twice to replace a part to make it heat up and now it is doing the same thime again (not heating up).


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. If you have poor or no airflow this is why your thermal fuse has blown out. Poor venting of dryer causes overheating and therefore blowes the thermal fuse. I Hope I have helped you, Tim.

Whirlpool 27" wall oven. no heat after self clean


Self cleaning features are not recommended by most appliance technicians. The ovens are not constructed satisfactorily to expel the 1000 degree heat, Therefore the thermal fuses blow as well as other parts failures.
Remove the oven. Remove the rear panel. Replace the thermal fuse in the back of the oven. Use Easy Off next time.

No heat


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse and or heater element, both very simple and affordable to replace. Try replacing the thermal fuse first to see if that's the problem. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. If this don't solve your problem you will need to replace the heater element. To replace the heater element, with the back cover off of your dryer just look down and to the right of were the air blows out. You will see the electric heating unit with two fat red wires plugged into it. Unplug these wires and you will see on the sheetmetal housing two screws that hold it on, one on each side. On older elctric dryers there is only one screw that holds element in place, it is on the bottom center of element screwed in from behind. Remove screw(s) and remove old heater element. Now, lay the new element next to the old one and take notice that there is a heat sensor attached to the old element where one of the red wires unplugged from. Gently remove this sensor and install it onto the new element in the same location as the old one. If you have an older electric dryer, the old heater element doesn't have the heat sensor on it, just skip this step. Now, plug in your two red wires and re-install your heater element. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Whirlpoool dryer not heating replaced the thermostat


Dont know the model number you have, but most of your items are located in the back of the unit. You need to make sure you replaced the thermostat, and not just the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse sits on top of the element shield, the thermostat is lower, down where the wires go into the element. You may have changed the thermal fuse, but the thermostat may be out. You will need to check (with an ohm meter) all the componants to find the trouble. If that thermal cut-off has went bad again, change the thermostat with it. Be sure you have very good ventilation all the way through, bad vents will cause problems like this all the time. Let me know if you need parts info. Let me know a model number as well.
