Question about GE 5.8 Cu. Ft. Extra-Large Capacity Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer keeps blowing the fuse

I had to take my dryer apart and clean all the lent and dust out. I put everything back as it was but when I went to start it nothing. Then I checked the fuse box and the fuse had blown, so I replaced it but it blew when I was putting it in. So what exactly could be the problem? Did not have this problem before I cleaned it out. Did I do something wrong? Thank you for any advice

Sears 417.80042990 keeps blowing thermal fuse


Did you clean out the lint filter at the front, heat is the enemy. Clean out all lint from front, if you are handy, get around back and remove all lint and dust by blowing compressed air.

I have a kenmore elite model 110.8586 or 8587 anyway I cleaned my lent screen put it back as I always do after every load and know it say check lint screen


Possibilities

The sensor is dirty..remove the lint trap and clean the orifice with a Swiffer duster. Dryer sheets can clog the lint trap use a tooth brush and detergent to clean the lint trap. Alternately see if it presents the same issue operating it without the lint trap. If you have an air compressor blow out the slot too. Make sure the main exit hose is cleared also *vent duct*. Tip the unit and blow the air in too.

Or a melting type fuse mounts on the blower housing and is tied into the same circuit as the door switch. When it melts it shuts down everything and this keeps the lint from catching fire.

Also check the belts.

You can turn off the beeping if you would like. Instructions are in the manual. By Pressing the buzzer button it has Loud medium low and off positions.

Remove the rear vent and try the unit...

I'm thinking that your sensor is probably the issue here.

Your duct fuse looks like this: themobilian_972.jpg
The white skinny fuse will blow if junk is inside the filter housing

Right below that fuse is the control. It maintains the temps inside the drum

My dryer is working, but it's not heating


pull the vent line off the back of dryer and see if it helps,also the duct that the lint filter slides into could be loaded with lint,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?sounds like from what you said when you had the top off it worked better because you had better air movement with the top off.go out side and check the vent,if it's a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,you also need to vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,if you have a shop vac blow off the motor and blow through the inside vent to clean out the heating duct and vac out the back of the drum,you should take it apart and clean it out once a year so the dryer will run correctly

Lent seems to be going all over the house. The lent is very fine almost like dust. The discharge vent pipe is not leaking.


when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,remove the vent line from the back,if it's a long run blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,before you blow it go outside and make sure the duct where the flapper is isn't blocked with anything,and then vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year so the dryer works properly and your clothes will dry on time
