It is mounted to the case that holds the lamp.. Its specs read something like L3 250V, 5A, 115C. You can replace it provided you can locate it

How to check door switch for being bad

Hello Don;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You need to purchase a multi-meter. This is a tool that will save you a lot of money in your self repair off all of your appliances. They Cost $20-25.00.

The two primary reasons your dishwasher may not start is your Bi-Metl thermal fuse and the door switch.

1.) Bi-Metl Thermal Fuse:
This is a thermal safety device that installs in the console. When the temperature inside the dishwasher gets too high, the bi-metal fuse burns out and breaks the circuit that allows electricity to flow to and from the main electric control board.
Substitution Part Number: W10258275 - Cost: $25.00
It is located next to your control board. Caution: Before touching you control board ground your self by rubbing your hands on bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board.

a.) Turn power off at the breaker box.
b.) Disassembly the control panel to access the thermal fuse.
c.) Disconnect the two leads from the thermal fuse.
d.) With your multi-meter set on the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol), put one meter lead on each contact.
e.) If your get a reading other than, '0' then the thermal fuse is bad.

2.) Door Switch:
This is located in you door handle assembly.
a.) Lift the switch off the two retaining pins.
b.) Disconnect the two contact wires.
c.) Using your multi-meter the same as above - hold the switch button in with the two meter leads on each contact. Here, you also are looking for '0' Ohms if the contact switch is good.

Is there a thermal fuse reset on electrolux Ew30gs65gs?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know if there is a thermal fuse reset on your Electrolux range, model# EW30GS65GS. Typically, this is not something that anyone other than the technicians would know. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is going on with it, as well as answer your question. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dryer has power wont start

Hello Dom - Being that you have narrow down some possibilities, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause:

1. Make sure the dryer is plugged into outlet, and plugged in correctly.

2. Is house fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker.
3. Make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. I would recommend reaching out to a Licensed Electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself.

4. Thermal limiter tripped or an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor (electric dryers only) in the unlikely event of an overheated situation.A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault.

If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

How do i replace the thermal fuse

Hello there
Unplug your dryer from its electrical outlet. make sure that all electricity has been disconnected from your dryer before moving on

turn off the gas valve that supplies gas to your dryer. Remove the gas flex line at the shut-off valve using an adjustable wrench.

Remove your dryer's back panel. take out the screws on the back of the dryer and the panel will come free. set the panel and screws aside until you are ready to replace them.

locate the thermal fuse between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust. the thermal fuse looks like a white plastic strip with two connected wires.

unplug the wires connected to the thermal fuse.

remove the screw that secures the thermal fuse to your dryer. set the screw aside and discard the broken thermal fuse.

replace the thermal fuse screw to attach the new replacement thermal fuse to your dryer.

reconnect the wires to the thermal fuse.

My lg gas dryer doesnt get hot.


As first thing try replacing the thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is located in the blower housing, near to the exhaust at the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse cost is only few dollars. Before replacement it can be tested reading Ohms with a multimeter. If the multimeter set on impedance reads infinite Ohms (No continuity, same as on air), then the fuse must be replaced. A good fuse must read low or zero impedance.

If the thermal fuse is OK, the next parts to test are the thermostats. On GE gas dryers there are at least two thermostats. One is a control of themperature, the other is an high limit. High limit is hosted on the blower housing, near to the thermal fuse. There is one or two thermostats near to the blower wheel. Often there is a safety thermostat near to the burner. To get details on the specific model check the schematics tucked inside the appliance or available online.
The thermostats are tested reading Ohms at room temperature. If any of them returns no continuity at room, then the thermostat is faulty and must be replaced.

If the thermostats and fuse are OK, then the next step is checking valve and igniter. The igniter or glowbar is tested energizing it and observing if there is spark. The valve is tested reading Ohms on solenoid with multimeter set at Rx1. If the solenoid has no continuity, then the valve is faulty. There is also a flame sensor that can be tested reading impedance or jumping its contacts.

If all the parts listed above are OK, then wiring and electronic timer control board must be tested reading voltages at contacts.

The problem is likely the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats.

Apart replacing the part, ensure that the hoses are not blocked , and that there is no lint inside the machine. This may have caused the fuse blowing.

Here a general diagram that can help you in identifying parts.

All tests must be done by a trained technician.

To get a technician on site , or to get a quote on repair ring the number listed on the owners manual.You can also get an US technician contact using our directory:Contacts.

To get parts ring GE at the number on manual.

No heat but have strong air..

Test and eventually replace the Dryer thermal fuse
The fuse is located on the blower wheel cover.
The fuse can be tested using a multimeter.
If the fuse has continuity , then is good.

Test the heating element and the thermostat Thermal cut-off .

Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.

To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.

The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.

If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.

All test and repair must be done by a technician.

If you need to contact a technician you can call the number listed on the owners manual.

Screen goes black, 5 blinking red lights, screen back on for 20 seconds....cycle continues

Let me first say that if you are getting 5 blinks its not the thermal fuse. Your problem is your Lamp. You have what we call an intermittent Lamp. The only way to fix this is to replace the lamp. Part Number A-1085-337-A. Average cost $217.00
