Dryer runs but no heat Part #163297. The thermostat shows no continuity but shows 24 ohms. Should it be replaced? Don
ANSWER Hello Don,
The thermostat 163297 should read Zero resistance. Reading a resistance through a thermostat is the indication of a bad thermostat and yes, it should be replaced. As a note, 24 ohms of resistance is 24 ohms of continuity. No continuity shows up just like not touching the meter leads to anything.
