Overheating is almost always an airflow problem. Check airway before the place the fuse is located and the vent pipe and vent after the fuse to make sure they are open, If the airway is clear, the thermostat may be allowing the heating element to stay turned on until the dryer gets too hot,

Make sure air duct inside dryer and also going outside is clear. Make sure heating element is not grounded to housing.

SOURCE: Can anyone please tell me where the thermal fuse

Hello Tom, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Maytag MDE9700AYW dryer. I'm not sure if you know this, but this particular Maytag is built by Samsung.


To address your question as to where the thermal fuse is located on your dryer, it is one the heater housing, there is a hi-limit and a thermal fuse. If the Thermal fuse/safety is gone, replace the hi-limit as well.


Here is a chart to identify which thermostat is which and it's location, the resitance value to check for and part number for replacement.

Once you've gain access to them you'll need to remove at least one wire to check the continuity...the values are shown in the above chart (basically it's either open or closed)
As far as part, there are a couple of places I prefer, on-line at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com".

**unplug the appliance and turn off the gas supply before attempting any service...safety first**


Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance and I'll do whatever I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Maytag mde9700ayw thermal fuse on heater box blew. replaced it and blew again. will an open safety thermistat cause this


No. A short in the heating element is more likely to blow the thermal fuse. If the thermostat was open, there would be no power applied to the element

Where is the thermal fuse located


The thermal for the entire dryer is on the blower housing and the one for just the heater is on the heater case.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse help


Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

THE DRYER IS NOT PUTTING ANY HEAT OUT.


ften a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Hi, my Maytag Neptune gas dryer will not heat up anymore. When the machine start to run, you can hear the gas is burning & the heat is blowing from hot to warm to cold in about 60 to 90 seconds that is...


The thermal fuse is NEVER at fault, it is only a symptom of some other problem and is a serious safety warning. Check that the exhaust vent is clean and not kinked or otherwise obstructed. When WAS the last time you cleaned the vent??

Maytag Dyer model # MDE9700AYW wont heat it blows cold air


Ohm out the thermal fuse, if it is ok, then you can ohm out the heating element, be sure to visually check the element as well becqause it could just be shorted out internally giving you a reading, but first and foremost check your voltages be sure you are getting 240 across the outer plug spades and 120 volts from left to common and right to common, unplug this thing before you get into the element area or you could end up with a smokin fro !
