Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire dryer model #GLER331AS2 and the dryer is no longer heating. I've contacted customer service to no avail. I'm pretty confident that all newer dryers have fuses; however they don't show a fuse listed anywhere on their diagrams. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there. You are indeed correct in your assessment of this unit having a thermal fuse. The terminology dealing with this particular unit it quite different than the others. The actual fuse is called a thermal light(thermal fuse/limiter). It is located inside the cabinet, mounted on the upper left or right side(depending on the orientation of the cabinet in your view sight) of the rear panel. I will post a link to an exploded diagram that will help you locate this particular limiter(thermal light). Once you have gained access to the limiter, simply, preform a continuity test to confirm the damage to the fuse. Replace the fuse if damage is indeed confirmed.

Click Here to access the exploded diagram of your unit. The thermal light(fuse) will be labeled number 36 on the provided diagram. The internal terminal box, which is in close proximity to the fuse, will be labeled number 52 on the diagram provided. additionally, there is a second running thermostat that will be mounted on the top right or left corner of the heater housing. It will be labeled number 33 on the diagram provided. The housing will be labeled number 15. i would advise to test this thermostat as well. it may have shorted out when the thermal light blew, possibly, adding to the ho heat state. Replace both thermostats if there are apparent damage.

Testing Procedures for most thermostats and fuses(limiters):

  • To test the thermostats or fuse, set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, the thermostats should have a reading of zero. When the thermostats are heated to their limit temperature, they should switch off and you should get a reading of infinity. The fuse should be tested at room temperature for continuity

Frigidaire dryer model gler331as2 wont do I trouble shoot it

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Based off what your describing it sounds like a possible issue within your control board or door latch assembly. Is your washer receiving power into it? If not it could be an issue within the power cord or house wiring. Since it could be any of these possible issues I would personally contact a profession to come and accurately diagnose your washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. -Matt

Replaced the heating element of our Frigidaire Gallery Dryer, model # GLER331AS2 and still not heating. What next?

The next thing to check is going to be the HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT it fits onto the outside of that round housing where the element is.To check it DISCONNECT POWER TO DRYER open up the dryer as you did to replace the heat element and remove the 2 wires from it,use a multimeter set a low ohms rating and check thermostat for continuty with ZERO ohms resistiance on the 2 terminals on that t-stat. IF that t-stat checks good, next check the cycling t-stat in same manner. IT's going to be in the housing where the blower wheel goes and not on the round housing. If that too checks to be good replace timer

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

Wires came unplugged from behind control knob

Below is the link to the wiring diagram to your dryer, it should help some. In addition what I can tell you is that most appliance components have initials next to the connections that indicate what color wire is supposed to be connected to them, this is where the diagram should help. In cases of things like switches, buzzers, thermostats, things that only have to do with circuits being open or closed they will not have an initial so therfor it doesn't matter what wire goes to what connection. Post again if you need more help.
