Question about Refrigerators
The first thing you might want to check is the thermal fuse. It is VERY common for these to blow due to age, but while you have it apart, it will be a good opportunity for you to use a shop vac to clean out all of the lint that gets packed in there. :) To access the thermal fuse on most models, UNPLUG THE DRYER, shut the gas off (for added safety) and remove the back panel. They (the thermal fuses, or cutoffs) commonly look like one of these:
Again, with the dryer unplugged, disconnect the two wires going to the fuse. Next, with a volt-ohm meter set on OHMS or CONTINUITY, check to see if the fuse shows little or no resistance. If not, (which it probably won't) replace the fuse. It is VERY easy to replace and best of all, most appliance parts stores sell them. You can also order them online. Open the dryer door for the actual model and serial number and you should be able to find a replacement with little effort.
I hope this helps! :) Let me know if you need any further assistance in this matter.
