Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse

Dryer get too hot and blows the thermal limiter fuse.
Vent is clear and it blows good air. I put the new thermal fuse in and it ran for a bit then popped.

Could it be the thermostat?

    I too made sure that the line is clear. It blow a ton of air out the vent, it just gets too hot. There are two thermostats, a safety that mounts on the heater coil housing, the other is the control thermostat that mounts in the blower housing. I think one is not working right, but which one is the problem?

I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.

Lg dryer is overheating blowing the thermal fuse


you have an airflow problem. Check the vent hose all the way out and the outdoor vent hood.
a simple verification can be performed by disconnecting the vent hose from the dryer and see if this solves the problem.

Thermal cut-off


when the thermal fuse or the high limit pops it's because the dryer is running to hot,all a dryer does is move air,when one of the fuses pops it's from a block from lint either in the lint filter duct or the vent line,if the air can't blow outside or out of the dryer the fuse will blow.if your vent line is long remove it from the back of dryer and stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint outside,make sure there isn't a cage or anything blocking the outside hood,then pull out the lint filter,take the dryer apart,remove the lint filter duct and clean it out,also vac and blow out the cabinet and motor,you should do this once a year,your clothes will dry on time,less parts will get damaged from overheating ,your electric bill will be less and most important you won't have a dryer fire.hope this helps,the fuse will keep blowing until you clean out the dryer and vent line.

Dryer is only 5 yrs old. Started to blow cool air. Not heating. Vent was blocked from outside. Cleared vent, flab is open, but dryer still not blowing hot air. Is there a reset on this machine? Why...


There is a device in the circuitry for the heating element which shuts off power to the heating element when the dryer gets above a certain temperature which is ealsily reached with a clooged vent hose. This device, a thermal limit switch or thermal fuse, cannot be reset, it has to be replaced.

If you want to do this yourself, let me know -- if not, you will need to arrange for someone to repair the dryer. The device costs about $20 -- a service tech will probably charge up to $150 for the repair.

Will dryer still run and heat if one of the thermostats (cycling[internal bias], high limit, and/or thermal cut-off) is faulty? Would it simply 'blow' the thermal fuse (that i just replaced) again?


if the thermal fuse keeps blowing it's because the dryer needs a cleanout.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor,there's alot of lint stuck inside it that the vac can't get out,you can blow the lint from the back of dryer to the front so you don't have to pull the drum to clean it.if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean out the line,i've blown out bird nests and big balls of wet lint after people told me the vent line was clear also make sure the outside vent is clear no screens or cages if there is remove them all they do is catch lint.do this once a year so you don't have a fire and you won't have to replace parts from overheating,thermal fuse is a safety that will pop if the dryer runs to hot mostly from a clogged dryer

My dryer will not blow hot air


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

I have a May Tag dryer which blows the Thermal Fuse.


I am not 100% sure, but I think that the model that maytag had with that dryer. When I was working for my local dealer I had to change several of those, and it about 2 weeks time they blew.

IT RUNS BUT DOES NOT PUT OUT HEAT


Check the following to combat this issue.


Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Dryer Thermal Fuse


air flow could be the issue or if your heater itself is grounded against the cabinet i think your unit is getting to hot check all your vent lines if you have good air flow check the heater try taking the vent totally off for a few cycles and see if the fuse blows agian
