The start capacitor on the motor is bad. Replace it and it will stop activating the thermal cut out.

A Carrier mod # 24ANA760A300 Infinity with an error code #72 high stage thermal cutout, What causes this?

if it's a thermal cutout that's mounted on the circuit board you may have to replace the whole board. I don't have the carrier error codes at hand. But a "thermal cutout" is normally found on the compressor. One advantage of the old (before digital) systems is that the controls were all separate. So you could replace a bad high pressure switch or contactor. Without having to replace a expensive circuit board that held most of the controls.
Not to mention being easy to damage by power surges and lightning

Drum will not spin

While most Samsung dryer component failures will generate a trouble message on the display, a failure of the hi-limit thermal protector won't. If the hi-limit thermal protector has opened, it directly interrupts power to the drum motor. As a result, you can start a cycle using the buttons, the 'brain' will turn on the relays controlling the motor ( the faint clicking sound ) and run the cycle timer, but the motor can't actually run. And without drum rotation being sensed, the burner won't turn on either.
Solution is to replace the hi-limit thermal cutout, which is located on the 'nose' of the blower assembly next to the dryer temperature control thermistor ( which is slightly larger than the hi-limit thermal cutout ).
Also note that the usual cause of a hi-limit thermal cutout failure ( or a thermistor failure ) is ducts restricted by lint ... both the burner exhaust duct as well as the blower intake duct. Both should be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned while you have the dryer apart.

I recently purchased a 20 gal/1.5 HP, model 921.166420. The reset button on the side of the motor, (thermal overload Protector?) cuts out repeatedly. The few times where the motor did run and the pr

Could be weak thermal cutout or actual problem with unit. Thermal cut out easy to check with amp meter. Connect meter as required to monitor draw as unit fills and make sure that it stays at or below usage stated. If amp draw stays below stated usage and thermal cuts out, replace the part. If amp draw goes over amount stated turn off compressor and listen for air leaks (usually check valve will leak back pressure to pump causing extra load on motor).

Check the thermal fuse, the heating element, all thermostats and the thermal cutout. If these are all right could be the centrifical switch on
the motor.Or wiring of course.Hope this helps

Hotpoint tdl30p thermal cutout required-no heater element working but heater element is fine when cutout is temporarily bridged-need part nr of cutout

Usually, there are 2 or 3 thremal cutouts in these machines (Side by side).

They should be changed together. I'm not sure if THT1001 is a hotpoint part number.

If you're in the UK, then go look at: where you will get the pair for £8.95

My searches get drowned by UK entries because that's where I am!) If you're in the US, just google "hotpoint tumble thermal cutout" and you'll find loads (Note that proces vary hugely from $10 a pair to about $25!)

Maytag electric dryer keeps shutting off.Dryer gets hot. Repairman replaced the motor but still having the same problem.Could it be a sensor?

Generally if the motor shuts off it is because of the overprotector on the motor opening up to save the motor.When the motor cools down the overload will close and the motor will work again.

If the unit is getting so warm the motor is shutting off check to make sure the rollers are working properly and moving freely.

Will be using my dc07 for about 10 mins then it cuts out i leave it to cool then it goes for about 5 mins and carries on like this

There is a thermal cutout on the motor causing this problem because it is overheating. Either it needs the filter replacing and a good blowout with compressed air or the thermal switch is faulty. Try replacing the filters first and if the problem persists it is probably a faulty thermal cutout. Dyson can either replace under warranty or an engineer will call and do a home refurb for a fixed price of £60

T700 Dryer Won't heat

not turning off, is caused by a small stepper motor attached to the back of the timer, that actually moves the timer (if a mechanical knob, my memory for obscure (sorry) models isnt perfect) they fail and are replaceable, separately to the timer, or the timer can be replaced with a rebuilt one, at approx the same cost as buying a stepper motor,

No heat is caused by the failure of a thermal cutout(thermal fuse overtemp cutout or any of a dozen other names) a small device like this 5850e1d.jpg or this 4947033.jpg screwed on the ducting between the fan housing and the exhaust, with wires to the terminals.
when you stopped the unit while it was very hot, heat built up enough that the thermal cutout melted. test with ohmmeter or bulb and battery, no conduct -replace

There are only a few cutouts common to most dryer models the local parts guy will have one to fit, even if marked with a different brand name,

Guy at Sears parts said

safety thermostat, IS, thermal limit, IS thermal fuse, IS overtemperature cutout,
and probably half a dozen other names for the same item
The most common cause is burn out of the thermal cut-out. These are a small screw on device on the exhaust duct, when exhaust air reaches too high a temperature, like a blockage, they fail before a fire.
Clean the exhaust ducts all the way to the outside wall, lots of vent hoods block over time. then examin the exhaust duct for devices that look like this 2832e78.jpg or like this a5b1531.jpg with wires connected to the terminals. there may be 2(hi lo), test with a flashlilght bulb & battery, or ohmmeter
conductivity good,
no conductivity, replace,
they are not resettable.
There are only a few different kinds the local parts guy will have them. take the dud one for him to match.
Remove the plug from the wall before doing anything, remove the wires from the terminals before testing.
This a187dee.jpg is is the circuit for a kenmore dryer 24032,
220V overtemp cutout in the bottom right corner, is NOT connected to the 110V motor circuit.
The motor still runs when the cutout has blown
Sears sells you a $20 part,
arranges a $200 home service call,
somebody gets an attaboy for upsaling
