Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
Opening the cabinet of Frigidaire models
Note: Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you begin to open its cabinet. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel. There should be a removable kickplate found at the bottom of the dryer. Remove this kickplate by removing the two screws found at the bottom. Let the kickplate drop down just a little to disengage the two pins found on its top.
If your dryer has an enamelled top, you can raise it by releasing the two spring catches found under it. Use a putty knife (or some other thin and flat object) to push in on and disengage each catch.
Remove the two screws (some models will have four) that secure the bottom of the front panel. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
If your dryer has a galvanized top, remove the screws from the front panel, and then remove the front panel itself. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
Testing a thermal fuse
Note: Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
Testing a dryer's thermal fuse is much like testing its thermostats. Follow these steps to replace your dryer's thermal fuse.
The wires leading to the thermal fuse are connected using metal slip on connectors. Remove the wires by pulling on the connectors, and not the wires themselves. It may be a good idea to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.
Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermal fuse should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. We strongly recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.
If the test you conduct with your thermostat does not produce these results, then you should replace the component
