Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Electric dryer Kenmore 80 series electric dryer. Quit in the middle of a drying cycle. Does nothing -- even the light inside is not working. I checked to be sure we didn't trip circuit breaker - no such luck! Wondering if it would be worth having serviced or should I purchase a new one.

Most dryers have two fuses in them, one inline with the heater element and another thermal fuse in the main circuit. The one inline with the heater element can blow and the dryer will still run, but will not heat. If the dryer gets too hot it may blow the thermal fuse and kill power to the entire system.

Depending on your level of handiness, you may take the cover off (make sure the unit is unplugged from power) and look for a blown fuse. Most dryers have a schematic for repair somewhere on the unit, usually in the top control area.

Kenmore Electric Dryer Series 80 110.86980800 burning smell


If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.
