The dryer blew the thermal over load on the heater coil I replaced the over load and therostat and it blew the over load again. What should the ohms be on a good heater coil kenmore dryer model...


Hello, The ohms rating on the heat element should be appx.10-20 ohms. The reason a thermal cutoff would blow and the replacement also blow was a poor air flow issue, so to much heat was being retained in the heater housing. What ya would need to check is for lint build up in the lint filter housing and also a blocked or restricted vent tube.

Hello,

A typical reason the thermal cutoff would go out so quickly is because of a poor airflow so the heat is being built up in the dryer instead of being vented out.
What to check is for a blocked/restricted vent,lint built up in the blower housing that is restricting the airflow& or a broken blower wheel that isn't moving the air from the dryer.
