Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer
My dryer stopped and won't turn on. Nothing happens at start switch when pressed. I opened back gray panel but see no fuse, only three wires coming off the main electrical connector into the machine from the power cord.
The problem you are having may be caused by a blown thermal fuse. You can check by performing the following steps:
1. Unplug the dryer.
2. Remove the back panel.
3. Look for the thermal fuse which is usually white or black in color (plastic) and mounted on the air blower housing on the left side of the dryer (viewing from the back). There will be 2 wires attached to it. The other device mounted near it is the operating thermostat, is thicker in shape, and may have 4 wires attached to it. The dryer will usually still run if the thermostat is bad, but won't heat properly. The thermal fuse should read a short (or fairly low resistance). If the fuse is blown, it must be replaced.
Keep in mind, if the thermal fuse has blown it is usually for a reason. You could have an overheating problem in the dryer causing the fuse to trip. If you haven't cleaned the dryer vent ducting, or air blower housing any time recently, it may be worth an inspection to verify you have good air flow and no clogs.
If the thermal fuse is good, carefully plug the dryer back in (with the rear panel removed) and take a voltage reading across L1 and L2 (Red and Black) wires in the rear at the terminal block. This is where the power cord terminates at the dryer. You should get a reading of 220 to 240 VAC. If you aren't getting the proper voltage, check the voltage at the wall receptacle. You could have problems with the receptacle and/or power cord.
If the voltage at the terminal is good, carefully remove the back of the console on the top of the dryer and look for a wiring diagram. All dryers should have one inserted inside the machine somewhere. On this model it is usually placed inside the console. Verify you are getting voltage to the timer and/or start switch. If you are getting voltage to the timer and/or start switch, the problem may be the timer or associated wiring.
Post back with comments if you need further assistance on how to troubleshoot. I hope this helps.
