Question about Dryers
Dryer runs but does not heat. had overtemp switch replaced. ops ok now. is there a reset botton on this switch? repair took only 10 minutes.
All of a sudden there was no heat. I turned the knob a few times, sometimes it would get hot and then the next time it wouldn't. Help! Last year, the thermostat was replaced. Once the heat went, it never came back.
There is no reset button on these thermofuses unfortunatly. Sometimes you can have a timer go out and cause a fault in the thermostats, thermofuses, etc. Doesnt happen to often, but it does happen. Be sure before you spend a lot of money, that you thoughly clean and check you dryer vent tubes or pipe. A clogged vent tube will normally cause major league problems (i.e. burned thermofuses, busted elements, out-of-temp thermostats, slow or no drying conditions, etc.). You can replace these yourself pretty easy if you have some hand tools (call Sears to fix and you can buy a new one) and a couple of minutes. Let me know if you want further instructions or help. Good Luck!!!! JIm

Sounds like there is dirt and or lint in the fire eye that is used to keep the gas on. Find that, clean it, and try again.
