Re: Checked the fuse it's ok but the dryer still won't...
Hi Westam - It sounds like you are a pretty mechanical guy so let me quickly list and briefly explain all of the possible reasons why your dryer won't work. I hope you will then be able to isolate the problem and fix it. Let me know if you need more information
If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

I would like to assist you but I am confused as too your model and fuse you refereed too. Is this a Kitchen-Aid or a Jen-air model? Where is this fuse located? If I remember correctly in the Kitchen-aid model there was a single unit that had fuses with the harness and not on the lookup when you seek parts. But without more information I don't want to lead you down a goose chase. Get back to me and I will be glad to help. Thanks
first check the fuse if cutoff, replace it. if ok, then check for any broken wire. if all connections are intact, then test the heating element for continuity, if no continuity, then the element is bad and needs replacement. try these steps
Based on your brief description, I'd suggest you likely have a faulty thermal fuse in the control board as you alluded to, but it is not resettable unfortunately.
It's pretty easy to replace or to check, I've attached a link below to change the fuse, but you can also use the link to access the thermal fuse to check it.
With the aid of an ohm meter, remove one wire and measure across the two contacts and it should show continuity, otherwise it's open and therefore no good.
The part is available at most brick & mortar part places or on-line at vendors such as "repairclinic.com" or searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple. Part number 8193762...looks like this image and retails for about $15-$20USD based on the model you provided.
This is the youtube link to help with the repair "how to".
This is most often caused by a bad thermal fuse or thermostat high
limit cutout. Check them for continuity (with the machine unplugged,
of course) They should have continuity -- replace them if open. They
should be available at www.appliancepartspros.com Also, if one or both
are bad, check the dryer vent as they often are damaged by high heat
due to a restricted vent pipe. The website above also has diagrams to help find the parts on the machine.
If you have no power and no lights at all,you may have blown the fuse. There is a non-resettable fuse in the top right corner of the control board.Remove the 6 screws across the top of the console panel to access the board and fuse. You can check the fuse for continuity with a meter set for ohms or continuity. Al;so check the door switch below the open/close lever for continuity.Check incoming power under the dishwasher were the incoming power wires connect.
Check for a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.
Hi does this range have a fuse for the circuit/timer board its not on at all but burners still lite and starter works if the is a fuse will you tell me where its at or is the top board fryed or the bottom board yes there is a bottom board on the right sie base in draw area dont know what to change i thought maybe it was only a fuse but can't locate it thanks for your help with this . model kgrc608lss0
