No power to unit at all light will not even light up could this be the thermal fuse? There is 220Vac going to the dryer ok. Thanks!

Will for Model Number lnc7764a71

ANSWER Hello Will, This sounds like the thermal fuse LA-1053. Be aware that if the thermal fuse has indeed blown, it is blown by high temperature. This means that if you do not correct the issue with the exhaust duct, the thermal fuse will just blow again. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. Be sure to clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. Make sure if there is flexible ducting in place that it has not become crimped. If the air flow is not good, the unit will recirculate moist air causing the clothes not to dry.
