Everything works except dryer will not heat up, is this just the heating element or could it be the thermal fuse?
Answer Hello Thomas. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Have a frigidaire dryer. Lights wont come on. Dyer wont turn on.
Answer Hello Andrea. You will need to test the thermal limiter 134120900 and see if it is good. It should read closed for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Dryer not turning on, the lights on front panel do blink but that's it.
Answer Hello Jeff,
You will want to do a continuity check on the thermal fuses. If no continuity then the fuse is bad. Also check the door switch for continuity with door closed there should be continiuty. If not then the door switch is bad.
My dryer does not have power. I have checked the breaker and connection. The dryer is approx. 7 years old. Could this be the thermal limiter?
Answer Hello Neal,
You would want to do a continuity check on the thermal limiter. If it reads open then you would want to replace the thermal limiter 134120900.
Washer\dryer approx 5 years old When I press start button on dryer, it buzzes - then stops when I release the button, but does not come on. Can you help?
Answer Hello Chuck. Opent he dryer door and tape the door switch closed. The press the button and turn the drum by hand and see if the unit starts. If so, the motor is bad and will need to be replaced. If the buzzing is the end of cycle buzz, you will need to replace the timer on the unit.
I need to know what do I need to take off in the back of my dryer to get to the thermal limiter Because my dryer has stopped heating
Answer Hello Ethan,
You would access the thermal limiter on the heater assembly by lifting the main top on unit. To do this you would use a putty knife in between the main top and the cabinet of unit on either side. There are clips to depress and lift top. Once top is lifted the thermal fuse is at the back of the unit.
