I bought my dryer for $30.00 and when I first used the dryer it seemed to get too hot and I took it apart to see if I could fix it. The terminal L1 is melted out so I rigged it and tried to use it then and still seemed to get way too hot,but before I rigged it I cleaned it on the inside and found that the squirl's cage or circular fan that hooks to the motor is cracked and comes off the shaft, could this be the cause of the dryer over heating and not drying the clothes good or in a timely manner?
ANSWER Hello Bruce! Yes, if the blower assembly is cracked and coming off the motor shaft it will cause the dryer to start overheating as it is not circulating the heat within the product as it should. You will need to replace the blower, it comes as an assembly, part number 131775600. Thanks!
