Dryer keeps tripping the circuit breaker. I believe it is caused by a faulty limit switch, Part # 279054. Does this sound possible?
Answer Hello Chris,
The thermostat will not cause the circuit breaker to trip unless it is shorted to ground. Normally a thermostat will just go open, which will not trip a breaker. I would first check the terminal block and your receptacle. Let us know if we can assist further.
My dryer has run super hot the last three times used. Now it will not start. Help!
Answer Hello Leon,
Sounds like your exhaust duct may be crimped or the cycling thermostat 3387134 has stuck and the thermal cut out 279816 has now opened. We have an excellent manual for the do-it-yourselfer that explains how to troubleshoot and repair the unit yourself. Let us know if you require any more assistance.
