Have a dryer that is not heating up. Have watched several of the videos and believe the thermal cut-off is bad.(no continuity)...am I correct. Also I'm not sure what terminals to test accross for continuity on the heating element.

Randy for Model Number len1000hq1

ANSWER Hello Randy, If no continuity is read through the thermal cut-out, it will need to be replaced. Be aware that the thermal cutout is included in a kit which also includes the high limit thermostat. The reason is because the high limit thermostat should open before the thermal cut-out. If the thermal cut-out is opened, it indicates a failure of the high limit thermostat and they both should be changed to avoid the possibility of a fire hazard. Also, be aware that the thermal cut-out will often fail in cases of a crimped, clogged, or excessively long exhaust duct.
