Question about Kenmore Dryers
I think it is the High Temp Stat in the heating chamber. It tests open. Does it actually cycle during the run? The thermal fuse is closed. I have read that they need to be replaced together. Why. I know it would not be recommended, but can I jump this switch to get the wet clothes dry for tonight before replacing?
If you bypass the hi limit thermostat you will blow your thermal fuse within minutes. The hi limit thermostat is a bi-metal thermostat which warps when heated to kill power to the element. If its bypassed then the element will not turn off.....which will in turn blow your thermal fuse which is rated at a higher temp than the hi limit. So unfortunately it will not work.
Hope this helps _MJ_
