Check for continuity (~zero ohms) from one side of the fuses to the other side of the thermostat. Most likely it will be open (infinite ohms), which indicates that one of the components has gone bad.

Where is the alternator fuse for a 2005 mod landcruiser sahara?

Hi Charles
I haven't seen an Alternator with a Fuse.
They Generate 35-55 or more Amps and are usually connected directly to the Battery Positive. Check at Alt. Main Terminal with MultiMeter. Check for Good Ground.

The small wire on the back of the alternator often comes from Ignition Key + to control the charge rate.
The Modern Alt. also has an internal Regulator Circuit to control charge rate.

If trying to save money.... Alternators can be split open on the Bench and repaired. Just put a mark across joint before opening.
Use a brush hook (make one) to hold brushes back while re assembling.

Items to watch for:
Brushes Worn Out - no juice to Rotor to excite (generate)
Diodes Blown - (Multimeter Test on Diode Function for shorts / open. Simple Unsolder, Press out & replace
Regulator Blown - Buy replacement
Stator Coils Corroded or Shorted/Open or bad solder joints.

Remove Alternator & Bench Test.

Good Luck

My whirlpool dryer comes on and runs good but it wont get hot can you tell me whats the problem

Hello there and welcome to fixya there are several things that could make this dryer not heat up
Here are the most common things

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, but the drum
turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer
from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is
blown, it will have to be replaced.

Enter your model number to see parts for your dryer.

Help me find my model number

Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric
solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner
assembly. If the dryer doesn\'t heat one or more of the solenoids may be
defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame
doesn\'t light, replace these coils as a set.

Dryer Igniter

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the igniter might
be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer
igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.

Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can
burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element should be
checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must
be replaced if defective.

Heating Element Assembly

the heating element assembly on an electric
dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element
assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly
cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor

Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the
heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the flame sensor
might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not
as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.

High Limit Thermostat

Although not common, if the dryer doesn\'t
heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for
continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn\'t heat.

Cycling Thermostat

The cycling thermostat regulates the
temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn\'t heat it may be
caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.

Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at
fault when the dryer doesn\'t heat. Check all of the other components in
this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The
main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is

The timer is normally not at fault if the
dryer doesn\'t heat. In many situations where timers are replaced they
end up being returned. Check all of the more common components in this
troubleshooting guide before replacing the timer

I have a whirlpool le6150xsw1 dryer and its not getting hot

For this job, all your work is going to be behind the machine. Tools you'll need is: 1/4 nut driver or drill with 1/4 adapter and a multimeter with ability to check continuity. With the machine unplugged, remove the back cover of the dryer. Once done, the heating element will be located on the right hand side with two fuses on the housing of the element. Test the element and each fuse seperatly by removing the wires and checking for continuity on each component. All parts should show continuity, so if one doesn't its bad and needs to be replaced

No heat cleaned all filters

Either the element has failed, or one of the thermal button fuses has failed open circuit. Either way the back has to come off the dryer.

Propain gass dyer. runs but very little heat. replaced gas valve coils and no change. Now I believe I have to check limit switches, but not sure how to test..What about the RADIANT SENSOR? NEED...


More than limit switches if burner is turning on but heating is poor you should check cycling themostat and then blower motor, lint filter and parts comprised in blower assembly.

When the problem is the high limit, there is no heat at all.
When the problem is radiant sensor, there is no heat at all.

Poor heating means either: defective cycling thermostat; clogged air ducts; defective blower system, problem with timer or temperature selector.

If the heating turns off in the middle of the cycle check also door switch.

Here Cycling thermostat:


The cycling thermostat is located in the blower assembly. Here removal instructions. Disconnect power first:


The thermostat can be tested using a multimeter. Set the multimeter on impedance (Ohms). Good thermostat will read about Ohms at room and will read open (infinity) at 150F.

Once in there also check the thermal fuse and check blower assembly. Remove lint and make sure blower is working. Thermal fuse is tested reading impedance across its two contacts. Remove fuse from circuit and touch with multimeter probes fuse's contacts (same for thermostat). If fuse is good it will read zero Ohms or very little impedance. a bad fuse reads infinity.

Check also the exhaust. Make sure there is no blockage.

Operations are illustrated from page 72 of service manual: Here the service manual.


About the flame sensor, that is a part that rarely fails. If the dryer ignites the radiant sensor is not responsible for the fault.
The radiant sensor is mounted in parallel with the coil.

When temperature is reached the sensor opens up allowing power to burner valve (valve 2). Testing the flame sensor like a thermostat is difficult because it opens up at high temp. I read volts while operating. I suggest users carrying only maintenance that can be performed with power off.


If the burner shuts down at random more than the sensor check the door switch. Run a cycle with door switch contacts jumped.

Start checking cycling thermostat and air ducts, those are problems that usually cause low heating.

Kenmore Electric Dryer , 700 series, MOD 64722400 , SER MR4136705 , Type DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM64 . Dryer is not heating, checked fuse it's fine, cleaned every nook and cranny with a swifter duster and...


Be sure that you have checked the thermal fuse. The part is tested using a multimeter set on Ohms (impedance). Remove the fuse from dryer and read impedance touching the fuse contacts with the two multimeter probes. If impedance is Ohm infinity (open), then the fuse is bad.

If the fuse is OK because tested good or replaced, then the problem is either one of the three thermostats located in the heating group, or the heating element. All parts are tested similarly to what described for the thermal fuse. If any of the parts read open (infinity), then the part is faulty. After finding the defective part remove all the lint from heating assembly and air duct. The lint causes overheating and blows thermostats, fuse or element.

MY dryer no longer generates heat. I would like to find and check the fuse before I call in a professional. I have it half taken apart and I still can't find it! Any help would be much appreciated.

check the Heating element thermal cut-off (thermal fuse) 309 degrees and high-limit thermostat 250 degrees use a multimeter to test the continuity

Kenmore 110.72822101 dryer does not heat. Need schematic

Parts to be tested:
Thermal fuse - test continuity with multimeter at Rx1 (Ohms) Heating Element - Same Thermostat-High limit - read Ohms, must have low impedance at room, and infinite at limit temp. Fan - Check if it is running Timer assembly - Difficult to test in full, look for faulty parts at a glance - read volts out.
always disconnect power when testing the appliance.
Here below the schematics and illustrated parts breakdown:

Please, do not forget to leave feedback.
Many thanks.

Coffee perks luke warm

Your heating element is toast! If you want to risk taking it apart, there is a fuse inside that can be replaced and if the fuse is still in working order, (test it using a meter), the heating element is dying.
There is nothing else to do, but buy a new coffee maker.
