Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
Previous problem repaired by tradesman , want to do it myself this time. Where do i find the thermal cut-out?
BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN WORKING ON ANYTHING WITH AC POWER CONNECTED !!
There is at least one thermal cut off switch.
It is a two terminal device usually mounted near the heating element or in/near where the hot air exhaust leaves the dryer.
It should be closed (shorted) all of the time. It should ONLY open when dryer overheats. Check it with an ohm meter with AC power disconnected. It should be a short. If open replace it.
You can also check it with power connected but you must be VERY VERY CAREFUL !!
Connect an AC voltmeter set to read 250 VAC across the switch.
Run the the dryer.
It should measure zero VAC.
If the switch opens it will measure about 220 VAC.
If it opens when it has not overheated, replace the switch.
