Blowing thermal fuse means it's getting too hot. Almost always due to blockage. Thoroughly clean ductwork and dryer. You will have to partially disassemble dryer to clean blower housing, etc.

SOURCE: Thermal Fuse

First of all stop replacing the fuses and using the dryer it could burn down your house. The problem is the vent is clogged (not necessarily in the dryer) make sure also that the vent flex is not excessively long behind the dryer and is not kinked when the dryer is pushed back.

SOURCE: keep blowing fuses

hi, make sure you are using a time delay fuse and not a regular fuse. this may be the reason why the fuse keeps blowing out on your dryer.

you have an airflow problem. Check the vent hose all the way out and the outdoor vent hood.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal limiter fuse or switch,what ever it is called.why?


Hi candwloc..
If the thermal fuse /thermostat overheats the dryer will not operate.
It's located on the blower housing and it cannot be reset.
A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat and keep blowing the thermal fuse/thermostat.
You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it.because it is faulty.

I have a Kenmore 110.63032102 dryer and I put a pair of sneakers in it. It shut off and now it wont even turn on. What's wrong?


Drying a pair of sneakers causes the dryer to overheat and this causes the thermal fuse to blow. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor circuit and if it blows, power to the motor is terminated causing the dryer not to turn on. Disconnect power then Pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct to expose the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards. Let us know if you need further advice.

Maytag dryer is less than 3 years old. Blew thermal fuse. Cleaned all of the venting inside and out. dryer still overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Replaced the thermal fuse and the high temp sensor...


Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

My kenmore 70 dryer quit heating but runs like it should, does it have fuses inside the dryer? we have a breaker bos and breaker not tripped.


Hi,

Hi,

Thermal Fuse is located inside the dryer, If the thermal fuse gets too hot, it will blow, and completely shut down your dryer until it is replaced. This fuse is often mounted within the exhaust duct in the back panel. It’s about an inch long, and is usually found within a white plastic housing. When fuses blow, it means they have no continuity and no power will flow through it. A bad thermal fuse needs to be replaced. When replacing this fuse, check the dryer vents to make sure there is no lint buildup which can cause the heat to stay trapped and blow the fuse again.

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse


I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
