Thermal cut-outs or thermal overloads are normally located inside appliance to the rear next too or around heater and best to get an engineer to help with this problem, only ones I know with switch outside are Whirlpool, WhiteKnight and some old Bosch Dryers.

Roper dryer wont start, do it have a reset button


Check the door switch. With the door open, press the button in and the light should go off. If you don't have a light, listen for a click form the switch as you push and release it. If you don't hear a click, you will need to replace the switch. If the switch is good, then problem will be with the thermal fuse located on the rear of the unit.

Brand new dryer keeps shutting off. not tripping my breakers I don';t understand


There is a thermal cutoff switch in all hairdryers. If you by accident block the air intake or the filter is dirty, then the heat from the nichrome wire is not sufficiently cooled to keep the thermal switch from tripping. After the dryer cools down then the thermal switch resets and allows operation. Be sure the air flow into the dryer is not obstructed

I have a Hoover Mach 2.7 Windtunnel that shut off during use and wouldn't turn back on. Was doing kitchen floor and running fine. Though a breaker tripped but didn't...what could it be?


Hello,

It sounds like your thermal reset switch inside of your Hoover may have gone bad. When a vacuum cleaner doesn't turn on it, it's either caused by one of four things.
  1. Electrical Short in your Cord.
  2. Plug has gone bad.
  3. Motor of your vacuum is faulty
  4. The On / Off Switch has gone bad, and/or your Thermal Reset Switch has gone bad
Since this happened while you were vacuuming, I would guess that this is either your electrical plug that's shorted out, or that your thermal reset switch has shorted out. Your model Hoover was built with a protection system that is supposed to automatically shut down your machine if it senses any excessive heat. This mechanism is controlled by a Thermal reset switch which is located in motor compartment. This part is notoroious for failing, even when there's no overheating that's occured.

Before you disassemble the entire machine to check this part though, I would try testing the On / Off switch in your machine, as well as testing the electrical cord, which will also let you know if your plug has gone bad.

Here's a link to a solution I've done here on FixYa explaining how to check the On / Off switch;
http://www.fixya.com/support/r4530569-replace_off_switch_hoover_windtunnel

While you have this apart, you can use the same electrical tester to test your cord. Simply put one end of the test into the terminal from the switch, and the other end of the test on one of the metal prongs that plugs into the wall. See if you have continuity here, if not, switch to the other prong of the plug and see if this helps.

If not continuity, this means your plug, or your cord has failed. If you do have continuity, this means that it's either the On / off switch, or the Thermal Reset Switch that's gone bad.

Here's a link to the solution that I've done on here showing how to replace the Thermal Reset Switch on your vacuum cleaner:

If you'd like some more help diagnosing this vacuum, please feel free to just use the comment field on the bottom of this page. I'm always happy to help you do some more advanced diagnosing, or answer any questions you may have.

If you found this solution helpful, please be so kind and rate this repair helpful, or leave feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated by the FixYa community. Thanks so much,

I have a roper dryer that was working fine than all of a sudden just stopped turning. I've checked everything I know circuit breaker. Does the roper dryer have a reset button???


No, reset button on these. It may be the lid switch or the thermal fuse. This is what I find most of the time. Check out the diagram on apwagner.com and you'll see the parts locations. Oh, if it's not the thermal fuse of the lid switch it may be the timer. I've seen this a couple of times.

Pilot wont light


If the pilot went out it could be hard to see the pilot. If you have a model that has a sight glass the pilot will be up and to the left. Knowing where to look may allow you to see the pilot easier.
Some models may have a white thermal reset switch which is located to the right opposite of the sight glass. If your model has this you will see it after removing the outer door. The thermal switch has two wires connected to it and in the middle has a small reset to push. After pushing the thermal switch you may relight the water heater.
If this does not work the manufacturer can offer technical support. Their number is 1-877-817-6750.

Thermal Fuse/No Heat- Where is it??


We were drying pillows and the thermal elements tripped. I took the panel off of the back of the dryer. The screwdriver uses a hex head (Lee Valley Tools). There are 3 thermal switches. Pushing the button at the center of each switch resets the unit. Our Miele is now running again which saves me a $200 service call.

There's no reset button, only a a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and see if ti works.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

How to replace thermal fuse/flame sensor


GE JES 1358 WK 01 microwave:
I recently had the same problem with a "flame sensor, " aka "thermal switch." My microwave is a "throwaway" model, very few repair parts available. I didn't want to replace it, so I did a little bit of research into thermal switches. I actually found one that would replace it for about $5 (plus $5 shipping).
Mine uses a "bimetal" thermal switch. There are three kinds of bimetal thermal switches: automatic reset, manual reset, and "one time use." The really interesting thing is this: the "one time use" resets (!!!) if the ambient temperature is below 0 degrees C, or 32 F (freezing); or, in some cases, -31 C, or about -22 F.
I put my "dead" flame sensor in the -10 F part of the freezer for about 20 minutes...
Checked it with my multimeter, and the once-dead sensor now read continuity (zero ohms)!!!
Reinstalled it in the microwave, and now it works fine.
So if you have a dead sensor- try freezing it...
