Model ogf41101 fuse blown cant read the number all works but dont heat the fuse goes to the high voltage need size of fuse


From user abu_abdillah351 has mentiond this before

the problem is the high voltage fuse, incapsulated between the transfo and the magnetron. This supports up to 5000V and usually rated something like 0.65A/0.7A/0.8A and even 1A.
When you open the capsule, you'll see it sitting there between its two connectors

Dryer not heating


Hello there and welcome to fixya

Here are the most common things that will need to be checked with a meter to ensure there is continuity on these parts no continuity means that the part is bad and needs replacement ok?

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn't heat, but the drum turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is blown, it will have to be replaced.

Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner assembly. If the dryer doesn't heat one or more of the solenoids may be defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame doesn't light, replace these coils as a set.

Dryer Igniter

If the dryer doesn't heat, the igniter might be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.

Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn't heat, the element should be checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Heating Element Assembly

The heating element assembly on an electric dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn't heat, the element assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor

Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn't heat, the flame sensor might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.

High Limit Thermostat

Although not common, if the dryer doesn't heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn't heat.

Cycling Thermostat

The cycling thermostat regulates the temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn't heat it may be caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.

Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at fault when the dryer doesn't heat. Check all of the other components in this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is defective.

How to replace the heating element


your problem could be in the heating element.

if it heats but takes along time then check your venting.

if no heat then it oculd be the element, thermostats, possibly thermal fuse..

the sides and back are one piece, so u will have to go through the front by removing the front assembly . you can go to sears.com and go to the parts and service far upper right and parts section, and enter your model number to get a breakdown on this model and get part numbers...I would check those parts with a meter first for continutiy before buying that heating element as most people cant take returns on electrical parts,, hope this helps

Had new element but still no heat


First, you must test to make sure you have full 240 volts to the dryer across the two outside terminals where the cord connects onto the dryer. If you only are getting 120, the dryer motor may run fine, but you will not get any heating. If getting 240, list your model number so we can tell you where that thermal fuse might be on your machine.

NOT BLOWING WARM AIR


Most dryers have a thermal cutout, a non-resettable overheat protection, take the model and manufacturer details to your local repair store and you can buy one easily.
then its, take off the rear plate, and trace the exhaust air ducts back till you find an identical item screwed to a duct, unplug its connectors screw the new one in place, plug in the connectors.
Exact info cant be given as you did not tell what make and model the affected dryer is
