I don't know what you mean when you ask about fuses since a blown fuse would stop power to the dryer, but I do know a common reason for a dryer to run and not produce sufficient heat is that it may be cycling on the "safety" thermostat. One common reason for this is that the "cycling" thermostat (which is the thermostat which the dryer should cycle on), located in the exaust air stream, is insulated with collected lint, which also lowers the air flow through the ducts. You may just need to thoroughly clean the accumulated lint. I would suggest buying the service manual for your dryer, if available, and go to the manuals troubleshooting guide.
A test for cycling on the safety thermostat is to run the dryer with a damp load and watch the flame through the small service door at the bottom of the dryer; if the flame stars cycling on and off every, say 15 to 30 seconds, then the dryer is cycling on the saftey thermostat, if the flame repeatedly burns for close to a minute or longer, than that is not the problem.

Why wont my dryer stay running?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not stay running. Please check to make sure the door is staying closed. If the door is opening in mid-cycle, then the dryer will stop running. Also, make sure the plug is in the socket tightly. Your dryer could be shaking the plug loose, which could possibly be causing it to stop running. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Where can I locate the blown fuse/s of a frigidaire dryer?

There are no user servicable fuses in the machine, I believe they are talking about your breaker box.
A 220 dryer requires two 110 volt circuits to run the 220 volt heater
The motor and control circuits only require 110 and are run from only one of these two lines. If the other line blows the dryer will still run but there will be no heat.
Good Luck
