THIS link will explain how to get to the thermal fuse.

Don't forget to check fuses in house fuse box and confirm that you have 240 volts to the dryer main connection. Do this only if you have experience in electricals and dismantling electrical goods:
Test for 240 volts to the heating element, 240 volts to the element and no heat = bad element. The element must be physically broken to be bad. If you have no power at the heating element, remove power, remove wires to the heating element and isolate them so that they can't touch anything. Reinstall power and check each wire for power from the wire to the dryer cabinet, one wire will probably show 120 volts and the other will show zero. Make note of the color of the wire that has no power, remove power to the dryer and check the wiring diagram to find out where that color wire goes to. Example: - wires might be black and purple, if the black wire (example only) was the one that had no power, look at the wiring diagram to find out where that goes to and check only those parts, no need to check the other colored wire parts as they are working. If live volt testing scares you, try the ohm check instead.

If you do not have experience, I strongly suggest you get a professional to check the machine for you, as a lot of testing dealing with high voltages is involved.

All the best!

Location of fuse model WER211ESO dryer


The fuse is probably related to the mains plug fuse and unlikely to be this as the machine switches on. Possibly the heater or heater thermostat. You may need a engineer to confirm which one.

I have an Oasis elite electric dryer model #110.6706 and I do not have heat even the drum is turning.I allready read in the troubleshooting book about fuses or breakers.I check the breakers but I can not...


if you have circuit breakers in your panel, you won't have fuses also, if you have turned the one controlling the dryer completely off and back on again, thats fine, what your going to have is a burned element on the heating coil,

Dryer works but no heat. In book it says it may be fuses. Where is fuse located?


There is no fuse in the dryer. What they mean is the house fuse or breaker.

Model: 110.70212990 Dryer functions but does not dry. Book has a fuse is out but nothing in the drawings about fuses.


Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If the fuse is ok, check the thermostats and the heating element the same way.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Dryer has no heat on any setting after house fuse blew.


We got the problem with our dryer figured out. After checking possible solutions on-line, we checked the power going into the dryer with a ohm tester and discovered we weren't getting full power that we expected. Just after changing the fuses in the house the first time we heard a snap sound but the fuses appeared to be fine, but no heat to the dryer. When we discovered we weren't getting full power we used the ohm tester to test the fuses indiviually and discovered one of the fuses were bad. Put in a new fuse and wala! the dryer is putting out heat. Thank you so much for the service you provide to "do-it-yourselfers" like us!

Electric Dryer Model No# FDEB23RGS0


Your issue is as follows;
"We have a dryer that will rn, however the last three days, it is not heating. We read the book regarding the house fuse in the dryer circuit and was wanting to know if there is a circuit in the dryer somewhere, or if it is the fuse in the breaker box."

Thank you for providing a valid model number!

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Temperature Switch; make sure a positive heat selection has been made. Then check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Tip: A volt-ohm meter is a valuable tool for diagnosing circuitry concerning this issue.
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element: Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Thermal fuse change on Kemore 970.c85042-00


First you need to know your dryer over heated and the thermal fuse tripped for a reason.

You will need to replace the thermal fuse, thermal fuses are there to protect the dryer. When you have the dryer apart clean all the venting and vacuum out the dryer. Look online for a parts supplier in your area, you will need your model and serial number to order the thermal fuse they are about ten dollars.

how long is the venting, does it exceed 20 feet, how many elbows. Make sure the outside hood is clean
