Check for a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is located inside the rear of the dryer usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a blown thermal fuse. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Fan Will Not Run


There are several reasons why a Maxim-X fan might not run. One reason might be that the fan fuse has blown. The fan has a 10A fuse all its own which is located under the cover for the indicator lights by the ignition keyhole (there are four #2 Philips screws that need to be removed before the cover can be removed to access fuses and indicator bulbs).

If the fuse is OK, then the next possibility is that the 'Thermo Switch" which trips the fan isn't making a connection. The Thermo Switch is threaded into the thermostat housing and has a push-on wire connection. Actually, the temperature sensor is also threaded into the thermostat housing but it is the smaller of the two sensors/switches. The larger of the two, which I believe is accessible from the left side of the thermostat housing, is the switch that trips the fan. Often the push-on connection gets oxidized and needs cleaning. Often the wire connection becomes loose and can simply be tightened and pressed securely back into place to restore the connection.

Another reason the fan might not spin is that the power connector has a bad connection. From toward the right side of the fan you'll see a short length of wire (maybe a foot) with two conductors leading to what I seem to recall is a red plug. Like all the other plugs, that can oxidize and create a bad connection. The plug can also come loose if someone before you has broken the locking tab or maybe didn't plug the two halves properly together again. You'll find the plug end up around the right side of the thermostat housing.... between the thermostat housing and the right frame rail. That's also where one white and one yellow plug are tucked away (the yellow is the power plug for the left coil and the white is the power plug for the right coil). It's a pretty tight cluster of wires and plugs but finding the red one for the radiator fan power is fairly easy because tracing the wire back to the fan is fairly easy.

So, if the fuse is OK and the thermo switch is working, and the connection from the thermo switch is a good one, and the power connection for the fan is solid.... then the fan might be burnt out. If so, they come up on eBay often enough so it shouldn't be too difficult to find a replacement.

But, from my experience, my money is on the fuse first, the bad thermo switch connection second and possibly a failed thermo switch third. That's what I've seen most often. Whatever it is, it's a reasonably easy fix.

The dishwasher will not turn on. I've already checked my breaker box, and nothing seems to be wrong there with the dishwasher. It worked a few days ago, but now all of a suddden seems to have died.


I would first take a look inside the junction box were the power cord connects to the dishwasher. The junction box is located at the bottom of the dishwasher and can be access by removed the toe plate.
I have seen were one of the wire nuts that connect the power cord will come loose or burn off.
If the power cord is connected ok then I would check the thermo fuse with a ohm meter to see if it's blown.

Does thermal fuse burn out only because of temp.?


Possibly or the thermo fuse just went bad normally if the thermo-fuse blows its a venting problem warm moist air back builds into the dryer which in turn blows the thermo-fuse to save the dryer from further damage and also keeps from starting a fire in your home a big saftey feature that has saved many homes.

My dryer stopped heating up, the power ans element are ok,i think the thermo fuse is bad there are two of them in the exhaust what is the resistance supppose to be


They should have almost no resistance. One of them is actually a high limit thermostat cutout probably. It resets, the thermo fuse doesn't. If the fuse is bad, the cutout may be too as it should cutout first. Also, check your vent as these are often blown due to a restricted vent.

Motor cycle over- heating, cooling system problem


it could be a few different things, first thing i would check is the fuse, if the fuse is ok, unplug the fan and jump it stright from the battary to make sure your fan is still ok. if the fan dont turn stright from the battary then replace the fan. if it does turn ok then you have a thermo switch that sences heat and tells the fan to kick on, what you need to do to check this switch is, unplug the switch, take a peice of wire maybe about 4 to 6 inches long, strip both ends and connect them to the leads inside the plug.. kinda like direct connect, turn on the ignition and see if the fan turns.. if not, replace the thermo switch. the only other possibility is in the cooling system wireing witch i dont know much about.. i just went threw the same thing with my 2001 yamaha r6 and i changed the fan and it was still popping fuses when the fan was supposed to come on. After 2 days of checking and trying i made the descovery that a wire harness was hitting the fan blade causing it not to turn.. i hope this helps you out and good luck..
