Question about Dryers
I have changed the thermal device #279816 and still no heat
There are several devices in your system. You replaced the the thermal cut out designed to interrupt power when the temperature reaches 250 deg F. A thermal fuse is also installed which "blows" at 390 deg F. A third control device is the thermister which signals the control board to control air temperature. When it fails the system is designed to generate signal such as beep-beep-beep. To test the heater itself you can disconnect one end and measure resistance to determine that the heater is not burned out. Also you can read the voltage applied across the heater (if there is voltage but no heat the heater need replacing)
The control board gets a signal from the sequencing system. The manufacturer will provide a schematic for your machine if you ask.
