Power cord replaced, was melted. Kenmore a/c # 580.7112100
The person that replaced the power cord removed the old cord from the unit and does not remember which termnal on the cap the second power lead connects to. The cap has three term's marked: fan, C and Herm. Its a 6/45uF 270vac cap.
I got stuck trying to repair this thing, and any help would be great.

there is approximately one OME of resistance per foot of power cord. the power cord must be sized according to the amps drawn. if the cord is undersized the motor will not get enough power. the results are a hot cord and probably a hot plug. a loos plug will also over heat, you may need to replace the outlet in the wall as well, get a 12 AWG cord if you are using a 100 foot cord. I personally would never use a 14 AWG if I had a choose, but if the cord was 25 feet or less that would probably be ok. if you are still using the old cord or if the wall outlet is damaged this could cause the ossolating current.
There should be a cover where the cable goes into. Look at your old dryer - notice where the red, black, white and green cables go to - they should be marked. Compare those to your new dryer. With the power cord unplugged from the wall, remove the cord from the old dryer and install on the new one. The cord should have terminals already installed - you will need a socket to remove the nut holdng the terminals down.
If the power cord is really old and the insulation cracks when you bend the cord, replace the cord.
Hello, i have replaced cords on many window units so yes you can replace the cord. I believe if you go to a online appiliance website they will have the cord you need. I have found this website online with frigidaire parts http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts?s=t-faa065P7a-==
This may not be tour only but I would inspect the junction block on back of unit where power cord is wired on .sometimes these terminals work loose and start arcing melting the junction then causing a short. UNPLUG UNIT BEFORE INSPECTING. you will have to remove a small inspection cover to see this block, Hope this gets you in the right direction
This is extremely distressing to me. If someone advised you to jump acoss (bypass) the thermal fuse on the dryer then I am in disagreement. My advise is to trip the breaker at the house power center, remove and replace the dryer main power cord, and replace the thermal fuse. Something is causing the dryer to pull more amperage than it should be, which is what resulted in the melted cord to begin with. You may want to contact a qualified appliance technician to assist in throughly checking the electrical system on the dryer. Until this condition is properly addressed there is a very real safety issue. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
