If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a Thermal Fuse in the back of the dryer that, if blown, will prevent the dryer from running. To access, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG dryer and SHUT OFF gas supply.

2. Locate and remove the rear panel screws on the back of the dryer.

3. With the rear panel removed, the Thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing on the left-hand side of the dryer (as viewed from the rear). It is a small plastic looking component with two wires attached.

4. Disconnect the wires to iosolate the fuse and measure across the leads with a multi-meter. The fuse should read a short (0 ohms) if good. If it reads an open (infinite), the fuse is bad.

NOTE: If you do not have a multi-meter another simple way to prove the fuse bad is to make sure the dryer is UNPLUGGED and disconnect the two wires from the fuse and jumper them together. Plug the dryer back in and, if it runs normally with the fuse by-passed, the fuse is bad. CAUTION: DO NOT leave the dryer by-passed in this manner, Use only as a TEMPORARY means to troubleshoot your problem.

If the thermal fuse is blown, it generally blows for a reason. Most commonly, this is caused by a dryer that is overheating. I would recommend that you fully inspect your dryer ventilation ducting inside the cabinet and from the point where it leaves your dryer to where it exits you home. Make sure there are no kinks, clogs or choke points that will keep the dryer from ventilating correctly. A dryer in a clogged state will not heat efficiently and will eventually overheat to the point of failure. This will result in repeated failures of any components you may replace.


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifing any parts you may need. The Thermal Fuse part number is 3392519 and is listed as item 7 under the "Bulkhead" parts listing.


If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Goldwing won t start


Check for any blown fuses or relays, check the starter switch to make sure power is going into the switch and out to the starter solenoid, if there is power coming from the switch to the solenoid but the starter wont turn you will have to have the starter checked or replaced.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.



Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.



Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.



Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.



Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.



Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.



Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Simpson espirit 750 won't turn on


Hi, This may sound obvious, but have you checked the fuse? if the machine is completly dead this may be the problem or the ON/OFF switch is faulty. If there is life in the machine the problem could be the door switch. If the fuse has blown then there could be a fault such as heater element blown, is the most common to blow a fuse.

Our Whirlpool 27" Built-in Combination Microwave Oven and thermal Oven won't work after self-cleaning model # RM770px882 Serial # XE1401024 Part # 3185651


This often is a stuck or faulty door switch and it has blown the interior microwave fuse.

Q-- My microwave is completely dead.
A - House fuse has blown or interior fuse inside the microwave has blown ( usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow ) Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well.

Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.

Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section

Q - I burnt something in my microwave and now it is dead...help!
A - The fuse inside the microwave may have blown, but more commonly the flame/oven thermostat has sensed the over cooked food and the flame/oven/cavity thermostat has opened up - Info on that

also look for this electric wiring chart given in this link below just click on the link
