Sensor light comes on when you push the start button but does not start spinning

This is a problem commonly caused by a blown thermal fuse due to a faulty thermistor or cycling thermostat depending on the model of the dryer. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing and wired in series with the motor. The motor cannot therefore run when the thermal fuse blows open and no dryer functions works.

Unplug the dryer then remove the bottom panel and the lint duct and check continuity of the thermal fuse. You can also bypass the thermal fuse for troubleshooting purposes. Check for blocked lint filter and restricted vent system if the thermal fuse is indeed blown then replace it including the thermistor/cycling thermostat.

There is power to the dryer and there is no fuse on the circuit board is there a fuse any were else please help

There is a "white" thermal fuse in your dryer that may be stopping it from running. Unplug the dryer before you make repairs. How to open a dryer cabinet: How to test and replace a thermal fuse: This repair is a very easy fix. Cost is usually between $10 and $20 on the internet for the part. You will need model number to get the part. Usually takes just about 10 - 15 minutes to replace. Takes more time to take dryer apart than it does to remove the one screw and two electrical spade connections. Very easy here!!

Proper Voltage

Here are three ways to make surepower is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is pluggedin. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuitbreakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure nofuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain whypower is not getting to your dryer.

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heatingelement is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours hasceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open yourdryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributedto a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it isno longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have toreplace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse sothat you can test it.

Thermal fuse change on Kemore 970.c85042-00

First you need to know your dryer over heated and the thermal fuse tripped for a reason.

You will need to replace the thermal fuse, thermal fuses are there to protect the dryer. When you have the dryer apart clean all the venting and vacuum out the dryer. Look online for a parts supplier in your area, you will need your model and serial number to order the thermal fuse they are about ten dollars.

how long is the venting, does it exceed 20 feet, how many elbows. Make sure the outside hood is clean
