SOURCE: thermal fuse

Luke, before doing this, please disconnect your dryer from the electrical service. With the back panel removed...The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing, (lower left) and is white in color. If you have a multimeter, remove one of the 2 wires and check OHMS. If you read continuity, it's good. If it checks OK, go to your element can. There are two t'stats there on the left above the connectors for the element, check those the same as the thermal fuse. If any of these tests show anything other than OHMS, that's the problem. DOING THIS IS DANGEROUS. EXERCISE CAUTION. If you don't have a multimeter, you can pull both wires off of each of the t'stats individually and connect them together... essentially bypassing them one at a time. Then plug the dryer in and test it. If there is heat, you have isolated the faulty component. Let us know what you find.

SOURCE: Thermal fuse for Whirlpool Quiet Partner II

while it is possible that something could be drawing too much current, it is not likely to cause the "thermal" fuse to blow. what i would like to know is, did you use the wiring kit made by whirlpool to replace the wiring? if not then you probably arent getting a good enough connection on the thermal fuse itself.
what causes a thermal fuse to fail is ... get this... too much heat. so a loose connection is the most likely cause. check with your parts house and see if they can find the right repair kit that comes with a wiring replacement with the thermal fuse.

pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.

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.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

    Removing a part form a Whirlpool Electric Dryer


    The thermal fuse is located on the outside of the blower housing. To get access to the thermal fuse you will need to remove the back panel of your Whirlpool dryer.

    How do you check it:
    Before you do any repairs on your dryer, you will need to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet.


    After removing the back panel, remove one wire from the Whirlpool dryer thermal fuse and take a reading between the two terminal on the thermal fuse.
    The reading should be 0 ohms, if the reading is infinity, the thermal fuse is bad and it must be replace. When you find a bad thermal fuse, you will need to replace the operating thermostat too.

    The operating thermostat opens at 155 degrees and the thermal fuse blows at 196.

    These means that operating thermostat did not open at 155 and that is why the thermal fuse failed.

    Sony Grand Wega 55 inch LCD Projection TV, the red light in the ffront keeps flashing "6" times, and the TV won't turn on.


    6 blinks is an indication of a missing voltage. It's not the lamp or balast. It may be an indication of a thermal or heat trouble. These sets have thermal protection because of the heat created by the lamp. The thermal fuse may have opened. If this has happened you should have professional check it out. This set has 3 or 4 fans. These should be checked out or replaced. I suggest a Sony authorized repair. This is not a repair I would recomend for you to attempt. This set keeps a record of it's falures and the pro can check for any other trouble also.

    Just replace the thermal fuse for now. You have gotten good use from this machine. But, this is also may be the beginning of the end. Thermal fuses are not expensive either. These things just go out at no uncertain times.
