This 1995 dryer blows the circuit breaker after running a few minutes. Wiring diagram shows a control thermostat, and a high limit thermostat. Is the latter the same as the thermal fuse? Could either of these be causing the problem? Thanks 'loads'.
ANSWER Dick, I doubt if either of the thermostats or thermal fuse are causing the issue, there is a very remote possibility. You most likely have a "weak" circuit breaker in your power/breaker box, or a loose connection in the wiring to the machine. The thermal fuse would not reset so the dryer would'nt start or run if it opens. the thermostats would have to short to chassis ground to trip the breaker(pretty rare occurrence). Good Luck and Thanks
