Re: Thermal fuse location
It's a dime sized button about an eighth of an inch thick located behind the drum. If I recall it's got a red and green wire connected to it. To test it Put a continuity meter across the teminals when it's cold and you should get a full reading.

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. I am happy to assist you!
The thermal fuse on your Frigidaire dryer (FAQG7021WL0) is typically located on the outlet duct. However, I show that this model also has another thermal fuse located on the flame housing. Hope this helps!
If your Kenmore dryer has stopped producing heat, chances are the problem lies with the dryer's thermal fuse. A fire-prevention safety device, the thermal fuse is designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to the dryer's heating mechanisms if the dryer temperature reaches a predetermined maximum. Once activated, the thermal fuse must be replaced to restore the heat to your dryer. In Kenmore brand residential dryers, the thermal fuse will be located in one of two places.
Front Panel Access 1 Unplug your Kenmore dryer from its power source. Make sure that the appliance is unplugged before proceeding. 2 Use a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to remove the dryer's bottom service panel, sometimes called the toe panel. Slide the screwdriver or putty knife along the top of the toe panel until you've located the toe panel clips. The clips are usually located about four inches in from either side of the service panel. Push down on the toe clips with the screwdriver or putty knife to release. Remove the panel and set it aside.
3 Locate the thermal fuse on your Kenmore dryer. Look for the thermal fuse directly above the dryer's motor; it looks like a white strip with two wires, and is usually mounted off to one side. See Resources for a diagram of thermal components. Rear Access 4 Disconnect the Kenmore dryer from its power source while locating the thermal fuse. 5 Move the dryer away from the wall so that you can access the back of the appliance. 6 Use a screwdriver to remove the dryer's back panel. Set the panel and loose screws aside until you are ready to replace them. 7 Locate your Kenmore dryer's thermal fuse just above the exhaust port. The thermal fuse looks like a white strip with two connected wires.
Tips & Warnings
Clogged exhaust ports are a common cause of thermal fuse failure. While you've got your Kenmore dryer in pieces, clean out the exhaust ducts to keep it functioning at its best.
Take all proper safety precautions when working with electrical appliances. Make sure that your Kenmore dryer is unplugged before attempting to service it.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
1 the thermal fuses are located in the cabinet of the dryer under the drum they can also be located on the front of the blower wheel housing. on the back wall of the dryer or along the heating element can. 2. some kenmore, whirlpool machines have these fuses located in the rear of the machine.especially when the lint filter is located in the top of the dryer. 3. the heating element can also be bad. 4. if you have an ohm meter you can check the continuity of the thermal fuses,as well as the heating element.if there is no continuity on any of the above mentioned parts. Replace the faulty parts.
The thermal fuse for your dryer is located behind the rear panel. With the rear panel removed, you can locate the thermal fuse as a small white plastic device located on the blower fan housing on the lower left-hand side (facing from the rear). A resistance reading should indicate close to a short (0 ohms). If the thermal fuse IS defective, the replacement part number is 3392519. You can find all this information at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Bulkhead" heading on the next page. The thermal fuse is listed as item number 7. There's also helpful part locator diagrams to assist in troubleshooting. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know.
