Hi. The heating element quit working on this unit. A local appliance man sold me new thermal cutoff kit for 279816. It worked a few weeks and went bad again! I typed in my model number and it said this part is not compatible. Could this be the reason for early failure? Vent is clean and free flowing! Thanks Art.
ANSWER Hello Art. No, the kit he sold you would work, but your model does call for 279769. If the vent is clear, you may need to replace the thermistor [8577274 ] on the unit. Also, make sure the element is cycling on and off during the cycle.
