Where are fuses located in Frigidaire front loading dryer?


No fuses. Probably Heating element or one of the thermal switches. Electric dryer I am assuming

Dryer is not giving off any heat. Drum spins


Most likely it is a thermal fuse. Go to this website and enter name and model of dryer. Look for video explaining thermal fuse location.
About $15 at most appliance parts stores. Easy installation.

Hello Rick, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I understand your gas dryer spins but it is not heating. It sounds like your dryer may possibly have faulty fuse(s), gas supply or ingitor. Generally speaking, the fuses are located on the heater housing and the other near the blower housing. Typically, both thermal fuses are closed circuits. One will prevent the dryer from coming on and the other will prevent the motor from turning. However, regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. Generally, qualified technicians often perform these complicated parts replacements. I would personally suggest reaching out to a professional to accurately assist with the repair of the part(s).

Heat doesn't work ..dryer spins but no heat is produced


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Fridgidare dryer spins but no heat.


If the dryer runs but doesn’t heat, don’t even think it’s the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse was the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run at all.
First thing to do is verify your source voltage for the dryer; for those of you in Manhattan, this means to use your multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v. Y’see, Slick, the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.
If the source voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are listed below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (and cleverly hidden inside the control panel) to verify:
1. Even Heat Board
2. Heater Relay
3. Thermostat
4. Sensor

DRYER SPINS BUT DONT HEAT UP


Right on the back of the machine. It is the size and shape of a 1/2 dollar coin held in place by 2 screws.
