No you should be able to get one at Lowe's or Home Depot. Call them and give them the the part number before you go to get one.

You should get a electrician to check it out before you change it. If it has a burn mark and it keeps tripping you must have some type of dead short. Changing it may not fix your problem.

Keeps tripping the breaker


You have an opencircuit possibly at the wall outlet. Shut off breeaker, pull off outlet cover and take out plug unit. Check to see all wires are secure and no indication of burning or melting. Any black marks indicate an arc of electricity has occured. If suspicious, replace plug with new one.

Dryer has lost heat.


Hi
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
Electric Dryer---
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Gas Dryer---
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there.
3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary.
4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter.
5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible.
Hope this helps...

I have a sears kenmore gas dryer model 87592820 it keeps blowing the breaker. It was running about 1 min. then a spark flew out and it tripped the breaker. When I reset the breaker it continues to trip it....


Hi,
This sounds like you have a wire that rubbed through and is shorting out...
open up the back or where you saw the sparks come from and you will easily see the burnt mark...then you can fix it...

Do not keep trying the breaker... it is tripping to protect you and keep you safe.

Adding a larger plane to my yamaha motor to keep the bow down


I do not recommend changing the original design; you may face issues when you speed up and the bow start hitting the water for been too low… However, you can do as you please by adding more weight in form of Ice chest or you can find a plastic devices that you can fill with water up to the level you like…again it may be too danger.
