Dryer thermal fuse located on the blower housing. If the dryer overheats, the thermal fuse blows cutting off power to the motor or the heating system. When the fuse is bad the dryer won't start or will run but not heat. The thermal fuse cannot be reset. Fuses often blow due to a clogged dryer vent.
Dryer heating element thermal cut-off (thermal fuse) 309 degrees and high limit thermostat 250 degrees, with wiring kit. If the dryer does not heat the thermal cut off may have blown and a new high limit thermostat is needed.
Dryer thermal fuse (or thermal limiter). This fuse is located on the exhaust duct. If the dryer overheats, the thermal fuse opens to cut off power to the dryer. The thermal fuse cannot be reset--if the thermal fuse is open, it must be replaced.
Dryer high limit thermostat and thermal fuse kit. If the dryer does not heat the most common cause is a blown thermal fuse. Both the thermostat and fuse can be tested to determine if either is defective.
Heating element thermal cut-off (thermal fuse) 360 degrees and high-limit thermostat 250 degrees. The thermal fuse is a safety device designed to protect the dryer from overheating. A multimeter can be used to test the fuse. Always check the dryer venting when replacing a blown thermal fuse.
Dryer thermal fuse. Located on the blower housing. If the dryer overheats, the thermal fuse blows to cut off power to the dryer. If the thermal fuse has blown, the dryer won't start. The thermal fuse cannot be reset—if the fuse has blown, replace it. Thermal fuses often blow due to a clogged vent.
