Question about Kenmore Dryers
For the past two years, our Kenmore electric dryer, Model 110.62982100, which we have used for six years, continues to have a problem with the thermistor and thermal fuse needing replacing--a total of five times we have replaced ourselves in the past two years. The metal flexible venting has a 20 degree turn at the bottom of the vent from the dryer, up approx 2 1/2 ft. into hard metal which vents to the outside. The distance from the back of the dryer to the outside vent is 12 inches. There are no kinks, no lint anywhere-allventing clear. Have cleaned the inside of the bottom of the dryer--everything cleaned out-continues to fail after using for about three to four months-last time lasted six weeks. We have also replaced the thermal cut off and the thermostat once, about a year ago when the thermistor and thermal fuse were replaced. I measured the ouside vent and it is 3 1/2 inches across-blows well. Any suggestions of what else to do? My husband says to get a new dryer, but other than this problem it looks brand new.Thanks
How about bypassing the thermistor,you really only need the heater box fuse and high temp. cut out thermostat-mike
