Question about Kenmore 64902 Electric Dryer

Thermal fuse keeps blowing

I have replaced the thermal fuse 4 times. Sometimes it lasts several months, but most recently I replace it and it blew the first time I turned the dryer back on. How can I check the heat element? I have a multimeter and would like to know what I can do

No power. Will not turn on


It may have tripped the internal breaker, and or the house circuit breaker. Go tot the house fuse box and check that first.

Replaced 20A fuse - now have blinking lights


either the cutoff is open circuit or closed circuit if you get any reading at all it is good. I would look at the control panel look for overheating components. Tap any relays to release them if they arced inside. Whenever a microwave blows a fuse it is time to replace the huge capacitor at the back and possibly the magnetron. I resurrected my Sharp R9H66 Microwave Convection Oven easily. Had to replace the magnetron twice in the last 5 years

The thermal fuse keeps blowing


If you pull it out of closet and replace fuse and it works even after turning off again etc for several times--something is happening when it gets put back---did you disconnect venting connection when you pulled it out?

Pioneer m-770 will not turn on


you probably have a short in the circuit some where. you need to replace the transistor and look at all the solder joints to make sure there not damaged or cracked. i have the same amplifier and i replaced the fuse several times and it blew every time up until the last time when the 4 of the power output transistors blew. what ever you do do not try and power it on till you do all the things i told you or you will have sparks and fire. my mistake cost me my amplifier. but might help you get yours repaired
