If the dryer inside light comes on can the thermal fuse ok


No relations at all......

Light comes on means there is power and your door is open.

Thermal fuse failure means there is no heat. No current going through your heating circuit. Most models and brands will still turn the drum without heat. But there are some models thermal fuse will completely shut the power to heating circuit and drum motor. Like KENMORE certain dryers made by Whirlpool corporation

Why thermal fuse is blown


If you have no power to your machine and the power is on it is the thermal fuse. If the fuse is blown you will get no power at all. To my understanding after talking to many people the thermal fuse is likely the first thing to go bad on a whirlpool dishwasher. A power surge to your unit would cause the fuse to blow or the control board to go bad.

My Breville BOV800XL doesn't have any power.


My BOV800XL did the same thing. Of the three parts you mention the thermal fuse is by far the easiest to test and in my opinion the most likely to go out first. Check it with a meter. If you have trouble locating it read the FixYa solution for "The Breville BOV650XL will not power on." Check it for continuity like you would any fuse.

I found replacement parts at ereplacementparts.com. The thermal fuse assembly was $23 when I checked. Or you could just replace the actual fuse portion of the assembly with a comporable fuse such as http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/NTE8213. Basically you need a 216*C thermal fuse. These can be had for less than $2 plus shipping. Buy a few just in case.

I just ordered my fuses today so I can't report on the success of my repair, but I am confident the new fuse will solve the problem.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

Cabrio electic dryer has power but will not run


There is a thermal fuse wired in series with the motor and if it is blown, power to the motor is cut and cannot. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. The thermal fuse usually blows due to a failed exhaust thermistor. Check for clogged lint filter and/or restricted vent system then replace both the thermal fuse and the thermistor if the thermal fuse is found blown open. This is a DIY repair which only requires very minimal effort with a screwdriver.

Disconnect power then remove the back panel and locate the thermal fuse and the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)
$10.70

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

    Our Whirlpool dryer model #LER7646AQ0 will not start. Door switch checks for power with a power tester. Put new start switch in and still doesn't work. Do I need to use Ohm tester or will power tester...


    This problem is commonly caused by a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and the motor activates a centrifugal switch for the heating element when it runs. These setup makes the dryer fail to start and the heating element not to turn on if the thermal fuse is blown. The dryer seems to no work at all. Verify the condition of the thermal fuse by bypassing it and starting the dryer.

    Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the rear left bottom of the dryer cabinet. Remove the rear panel to access the blower housing and so the thermal fuse.

    jahn27_41.jpg

    Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the cycling thermostat if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.


    The thermal fuse and cycling thermostat are part numbers 3392519 and 3387134, respectively.

    "No Power"


    I've never known anyone that has "just changed a fuse" in a HP and have it spring back to life, I do know if a fuser or thermal fuse go you would still have display, I would check the switch, display connections then maybe pull the power supply out and check for damage, but in reality if got down to power supply one would write it off.

    The fuser not coming on isn't a problem, missing supply voltages from power supply seem more likely.Check if fan powers on at start up.
