Question about Excalibur Electronics Excalibur 5 Trays Food Dehydrator

Open Question

My Excalibur ED600 stopped heating. I assume it's the thermal fuse. I have a fuse ranked 117C. Can I use that? Also no instruction manual. How do I do it as the fuse I have is longer. Thanks.

If your Whirlpool dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers, thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F. Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer is easier than it sounds. Instructions:

  • Clean out the lint screen in your Whirlpool clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryer to overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer's heating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and wash it in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.
  • Look behind the dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions. Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lint that has built up.
  • Go outside and check your Whirlpool dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, bird nests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger your dryer's thermal fuse.
  • Disconnect your dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.
  • Access the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer by removing the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in place and it should easily come free.
  • Look between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wires connected to it.
  • Bypass the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer while you perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together the two wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it back in. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start." If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermal fuse needs to be replaced.
  • Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer. Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape that you used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from the thermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer and discard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing and tightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

    Roper electric dryer will not heat after replacing heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong.

    It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when the dryer stops heating and the thermal fuse is not part of the heating circuit, it is part of the motor circuit. The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

    My dryer is working, but not heating what can I do?

    assuming you have checked the outlet for 220v, it could be either your thermal fuse or the heating element itself.  if you have power and thermal fuse is good, odds are the heating element is open. you can check both the thermal fuse and heating element with an ohm meter, AFTER YOU UNPLUG IT.

    My whirlpool gas dryer will not heat. It only spins.

    If the dryer won't heat but does run, it is more likely to be the gas ignitor assembly, assuming there is gas available to the dryer. If the thermal fuse was bad, the dryer wouldn't start at all.

    Turn the foam knob, nothing happens most of the time. If I leave it open, it will pizzle and fizzle warm, low pressure air that takes 7 minutes to warm milk to 160 degrees. Bah! I miss my lattes!!!

    That sounds like your Steam thermostat needs to be replaced. There are 4 thermostats on the SL70. The rear one is your brew thermostat (92c), the one in the front is your steam thermostat (117c). The one in the center is over temp thermostat, (136c) and it screws in to hold the other thermostats in place with a thermal fuse held also. You need the 117c thermostat and maybe the 136c also. You will also need an new O-ring for the steam wand.

    Dear Paireyes,

    Things that can stop electric dryer from heating are as listed: house fuse or breaker, heating element, burnt wire, thermostat, thermal fuse (not all models), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug

    To check various points here are the simple tips:
    1. To check the thermal fuse - You can bypass the thermal fuse (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
    2. To check the thermal cut-out - You can bypass the thermal cut-out (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
    3. To check the thermostats for continuity - - You can bypass the thermostat (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
    4. To check the Element: Try removing element and physically looking at the element wire for a break in the wire.

    Here is the link for the dryer and how to disassemble the dryer along with the images:

    Let me know if that helps. All the best :)

    Maytag LSE7806ACE dryer stopped working

    pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.

    Whirpool dryer won't heat up

    You need to replace the thermal fuse and the timer. A bad timer will over draw a thermal fuse and cause it to blow.

    Please remember to unplug the dryer before servicing

    House fuse

    If you have a two pole circuit breaker
    there will be no fuses
    the breaker replaces the fuses mentioned in the manual

    Most common cause of dryer running but no heat is a blown thermal fuse. a protective device that fails if airflow is restriced and temperature rises.
    the thermal fuse is mounted on the fan body or exhaust duct and looks like one of these
    ac65851.jpg ce345c9.jpg wired in the heater circuit
    explicit instructions to open the case/body of the dryer depend on make and model which are not stated.
    If the thermal fuse has blown the dryer needs to be cleaned of the lint that got past the screen, into the fan and exhaust duct all the way to the vent on the exterior wall 2092f63.jpg thermal fuses are ~$14

    PT-40LC12 fuse problem

    I went here for a tech manual for the Panasonic tv.
    then ordered
    Manufacturer: Panasonic
    Part Description: FUSE
    Part Number: LSJA0411-1
    it was mounted to the case that holds the lamp. had to remove the back panel, etc. Also think I had to splice in the fuse or something. was a while ago.

    mine is broken again. this is getting old between lamps and repairs.
