Changing the thermal fuse was a good idea but if the dryer runs for 20 min. then shuts off that is generally the motor going into thermal overload....thus meaning you would need a new motor.

Samsung r40 shuts down after running for about 20 mins, was told cooling fan was not working so stripped down laptop cleaned fan (was full of dust) reasemmbled and ran all day yesterday, switched on this...


The CPU fan may be faulty and not spinning freely.
If you had removed the heatsink off the CPU did you place new thermal grease/paste on the CPU before installing the heatsink back on the CPU?

I replaced the thermal fuse because there was no heat. Now the dryer over heats and shuts off. Everything checks ok on ohm meter. The timer works in the "no heat" mode. Could it be the timer...


after you changed the thermal fuse did you clean out the dryer and the vent line?if not you blew the fuse again and it will keep doing this until you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac and blow out the motor and the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower.the dryer went over 300 degrees from lint buildup and popped the thermal fuse,it's a safety so the dryer doesn't run hot and start a fire.if the dryer is running and sfter like 20 minutes it shuts down and won't start for a while until it cools down then the motor is bad also probably from the dryer running to hot from the lint build up.

My Hoover U6458-900 shuts off after a few minutes of vacuuming. I let it set a few minutes and it will start up again.


It sounds as if the motor has overheated at some point, and damaged the thermal protector fuse in the motor compartment. Clean the filters thoroughly, change the bag, and try to operate it. If it still shuts down, the thermal protector will need replacement. ( Part # 47534032 )

We have model 11502 air purifier. Recently turned it on and it ran for a few minutes and then stopped. Motor sounded fine- no squealing, didn't slow down before it went off- just stopped like it was...


Yes there is a thermal cutoff that will shut the motor off for a period of time to protect it from getting to hot. If this is what happened after 20-30 mins. the motor should come back on and run again. If it does I would try to clean motor as best I could using a soft brush, vacumn, and blow out with air if possible. Clean fan of f as best you can to help motor run cooler.Hope this helps.Thank you

What will cause the thermal fuse to continually blow.


shorted motor or heating element, which causes excessive current draw would be the cause, replace the heating element first.

Drier shuts off


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement. The elecment has a contact in

the 'timer'circuit too.

It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

restricted.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Oven won't heat


Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

Dryer runs for about 20 minutes when good and hot then shuts off.


suspect motor overheating and shutting down on thermal..if dryer does not have good air flow through vent to outside lint can accumilate around motor causing overheat and motor failure try cleaning around motor but i suspect it's too late damage has probably already been done
