Look on the hot air exhaust tube for a small white plastic module with two small wire leads coming off of it. It will have only one mounting screw holding it on. This is your thermal fuse and all dryers will have this plus a hi-temp sensor mounted fairly close by on the blower exhaust tube usually on the left side of the dryer when your looking at the back panel area. Use a multimeter or ohm meter to check to see if you have continuity between the terminals. Should be less than .5 ohms or almost showing a dead short. Be sure to remove the wires to test this. Also, before doing any work on a dryer or washer, UNPL:UG IT!

Can a GE electric dryer Thermodisc be tested by cogtinuity?

That picture looks like a thermistor of some type. If you have the wiring diagram (usually inside the control panel) it should tell you the resistance it should be at different temps. If it is a thermal fuse or hi limit it will read like a switch. Closed if good---opened if burned out from too much heat.

Can a Thermodisc thermal limit switch be tested with a volt ohm meter

yes but you will need a heat source to activate it but before you do this check the part number printed on the device with thermo disc web site as it may be a single activation type ie trips and stays tripped. If it is it may reset with a co2 blast from something like an air duster

Dryer not getting hot why

Both the flame detect0bbc370.jpg and the igniter has to have continuity. 98f97da.jpgIf it work a little bit but quits then the solenoids are getting hot and failing. A common problem on gas dryers89b9845.jpgIf you aint got any heat at all and all of the gas assembly stuff is fine, then you needs to check the safetys thermodiscs for continuity. These thermodiscs called Klixons mount where the air temp can effectively bend the bi-metal inside and kill the circuit. Any of these sensors trip the circuit if an overheating situation should occur during the heating cycle.ec94686.jpg

Whirlpool gdb307 oven display not working after storm

Some things to consider:

1. There are two thermal fuses on this unit
- one fuse is in the bake/broil element circuit and if blown, would cause no-heat but the display would still light.
- the other thermal fuse is in series with power to the control board, if blown the control board display would be dark and no oven related functions would work

2. There is a low voltage transformer that supplies power to the control board that sometimes gets damaged by lightning surges. This would also cause the display to be dark with no oven functionality.

3. We repair a number of these control boards that are damaged by lightning storms. Here's a link to a related article that might be helpful:

Yesterday, my sharp carousel r-1460 went dead. I took apart the front keypad and replaced the 20amp fuse behind it. the microwave light and fan work.But, when I start microwave to cook something, pop! fuse...

If the 20A fuse is blowing, it is often the high voltage transformer or magnetron. If this is the case, and the microwave is not under warranty, replace it. Residential microwaves are generally considered disposable. Parts and labor are just too expensive. A magntron or transformer can cost more that half the cost of a new microwave.
