Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
There is one Safety Thermostat which will not reset Once it blows it is bad and must be replaced. The Safety Thermostats function is to stop the heat when the unit is to hot because of inadequate ventilation from a clogged filter or vent. I usually find the Safety Thermostat on the back of the drum since it will not rotate once you open the back of the dryer. It should look similar to a Power Transistor shaped like a disk with two mounting holes where it is screwed to the drum and two lead wires attached to it. Make sure when you check the resistance of the Safety Thermostat one lead is removed to isolate it from the rest of the circuit. If it reads open (no continuity) it is bad and needs replaced.
