Question about Dryers
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
***If there are no blockages in the ventilation system and blower wheel assembly and, the thermal fuse is ok as well, this will confirm an issue concerning the control sector. replace the Board or timer in this case. Most common issue will be a blown thermal fuse but, a faulty control sector is possible. It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse
