Question about Dryers

Answer 1

My admiral dryer LNC7753A71 just stopped working. Turning the timer only produces a clicking noise but all else appears dead. I checked the 240V outlet and its producing 240V and 120V on each side. The door switch appears OK. I performed a continuity check for when the door is closed and opened and that appears OK too. The light does not come on when the door is opened. I checked the voltage at the light connector and got 35V with the door closed and 45V when it is opened. The bulb is a 120v bulb. Is this voltage at the light connector correct? What should I check next to get this dryer running?

Your dryer is equipped with a thermal fuse located behind the drum seat on the heating coil.

There are two white wires connected to the fuse. Pull those off and connect together. Your door light will come on if that is your problem. There might have been a problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for kinked dryer hoses, dirty lint traps or anything that might have caused it to overheat. You must replace the fuse or you risk catching the dryer on fire.
