1993 Chevy lunimina Broke down 2 times in 3 days done pretty much the same thing both times ill be driving down the road and the car will just stall out while driving changed a blown fuse fir the dis and...

I don't want to seem like a smart ****, but the blown fuses were telling you that something with the component that it was protecting is going bad. So changing the fuse the first time was a go idea, the second time was not. It told you, that something was failing and you refused to pay attention.

But at least you know which fuse blew, so now all you have to do is find out what it was protecting and replace it or what feeds it.

Dryer Won't Start

most common problem with the dryers is blown thermal fuses, something gets too hot and for safety reasons the thermal fuse blows. You can also check your incoming power supply make sure the breakers havent tripped. part num( LA-1053 )about $30 comes with directions to install. its located under main top towards the rear of unit moundted to the side of heater.BE SURE TO TURN OFF ALL POWER BEFORE CHECKING ITS LIVE!!!!!!!!!

The thermal fuse is blown its mounted on the heater with the two smaller white wires. Check the vent for restrictions (since overheating is what caused it to fail) Was the dryer taking long time to dry before it stopped?? If so there is a definate vent restriction. Part number LA-1053 comes with new high temp thermostat too (recommended).
