Hi I am Kelly. What you should do is first turn off input power and perform resistance readings.

1. Unhook one wire of the heating element and read each of the element end terminals ONLY to the chassis and the outside cover of the heating element.(not to each other) If the element has failed internally they are notorious for tripping circuit breakers or burning out thermal links. Make sure to reconnect the heating element terminal if it reads correctly.

2. Make sure the circuit breaker is OFF and then test each of the input power terminals to the pump / motor case. Only the ground should read to the pump motor case. If either of the other 2 leads read to the motor case then most likely water has leaked into the motor and caused a short.

These are the 2 most common dishwasher shorts. There is always a possibility of a chaffed or broken wire somewhere but it is not nearly as common as the first 2 above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to replace dv7 1130us cpu


When replacing a CPU. Make sure the new CPU is compatible with the device you are trying to upgrade. You are going to enter into the BIOS. Download this PDF manual to be aware on how to get into these settings. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02642701.pdf

The physical part with replacing the CPU hardware. CAUTION!! DO NOT FORGET TO HAVE THERMAL COMPOUND BEFORE PLACING THE HEAT SINK ON THE CPU. IF YOU DO NOT APPLY THERMAL COMPOUND, THE CPU WILL OVER HEAT AND MAY CAUSE YOUR UPGRADED CPU TO BURN OUT.

Replaced thermal fuse after self clean burned it out, now upper oven works fine but lower oven won't bake or broiler


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The High Temperature limit switch is the week link in the system. This component will fail first causing the thermal fuse to fail. You need to replace both components.

Also check your temperature operating switch. You should get a reading of '0' Ohms if it is good.

Still having problems? Remove the oven thermocouple and test it. You should get a reading between 1000 to 1100 Ohms if it is good.

No heat in dryer


Check your exhaust leading from your dryer because kinks and lint blockage are the leading cause for exhaust high temperature thermal fuse to burn out causing it to run with no heat. The thermal fuse for a front loading 110.88752791 is part number=> 3399849 Thermal Fuse

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.
Please take time to rate me

If the thermostat is sticking could it cause my thermal cut off to keep going bad


That could be the case also if you aren't getting the proper flow out of the dryer because of lint build up could also cause the problem. The thermal cut off switch is activated when the temprature at the coils reach a certain heat limit then the switch burns out.
Hope this helped

Dryer keeps burning out thermal fuse and thermostats


If the thermal fuse and thermostat are bad,something is causing them to overhea,t before tackling the heating element, you should check all connections to the stat and fuse as a loose connexion could be the cause of the over heating.
