If you have a voltmeter or friend with one, check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted connections in the power socket for the dryer. If zero, check the house electrical panel for tripped breakers (dual unit) for the dryer. If they are ok, then you have tear down the dryer to get the drum out. Once the drum is out, you have access to the heating elements and a thermal fuse or switch.

My Chrysler 300 won't start. Problem is not battery or fuses. Not getting 12 volts to 5 amp fuse (fuse is good) for control voltage to starter relay. Applied 12 volts to fuse socket with ignition s

PLease, check if the check engine light lit up when you turn the switch, if it doesn't lit up, your EMC (computer) is not getting any electricity. And that could be the reason that you the fuses are OK but it won't start.

What is the problem when fuses get burning hot

The problem is most likely a short/breach somewhere in the line. If the fuse hasn't blown, make sure you are using the proper size fuse to prevent damage to wiring in hard to reach places. Some fuses will naturally run hot depending on the application. If this is an automobile, check under moving parts like electric seats for a cut or exposed wire.

Ignition wire is getting hot and melting the ignition switch. The longer the bike runs the hotter it gets. I've replaced the ignition once already last year and just replaced the starter relay switch...

Why has the fuse not blown? If the wire is getting this hot then the fuse if correctly sized should blow to prevent a burnout. You failed to give the year of the bike so cannot help any further. Check all fuses for correct rating. Have you installed extra electrical equipment incorrectly? Overload on the system perhaps? Unless you understand auto electrics and have access to a DC clamp meter to check all circuits then I sugest you bring your bike to a dealer before it goes up in smoke!

Electric stove

Check the thermal coupler a copper thermometer for your stove after checking all the fuses in stove and circuit breaker box of house to see if any have tripped. Circuit Breakers should have the switches all in a line. Any not in the lie will be tripped. Fuses in your stove are usually in the top part of the stove where the instruments are and fuses screw out and visually are easy to detect if they are blown or not. Remember all ways Unplug what you are working on to prevent shock

Amp getting hot sound distorted fuses blown wires not touching

make sure that you have installed a wire fuse inbetween your battery and your amplifier that is the most common reason for blown fuses. without that extra fuse your amp is getting a non limited amount of power from the battery.

Injector not getting signal, no votalage to the injector hot side

Check your fuel injection fuses. If the fuses all look good, replace the ECM. The ECM output drivers to the fuel injectors may no longer be working. I see this alot on these cars.

Ground zero amplifier overheating and going into protect.

Since you changed the amperage of the fuses and the cable, you allowed the internal problems of the
amplifier to get worse than they were before the original fuses started blowing.

A fuse is a safety instrument that blows instead of your amplifier.

The problem is NOT the fuses frequently blowing, as such events warn you of internal problems with
the amplifier which you should have had serviced at the time to prevent them getting worse.

It is very much like the persons who replace the fuses in their household wiring with pennies, to prevent
frequent fuse replacement only to have their house burn down from overloaded circuitry.

Service your amplifier immediately.

Revert to the original amperage on all fuses in your vehicle to prevent a car fire.
