The service tech shorted and melted part of the wall outlet while checking across the partially exposed plug for 220 voltage. When he came to, he told me I needed a new board and heater relay. I replaced the board and the dryer now works fine. I can not find the relay anywhere. There are 3 unused terminals on the board. Is it likely that the tech took the fried relay with him? Would the dryer still work without the relay? I can not find any unattached wires, any screws or any place the relay would go inside the control panel. Is it safe to run the dryer? Thanks, BARRY
