This thermastat was just replaced last week and used a couple of times. Now its has the same problem. I suspect its open again. Should I replace or is something causing it blow?
Answer Dave, If the thermostat has failed again, check and make sure the exhaust vent duct and vent hood are not restircted,clogged,or kinked. Check the inlet duct under the lint filter and remove any lint build up in the housing. If the unit is in a closet, make sure the doors are remaining open when the dryer is in use.You may also want to consider a new thermistor 35001191, it could be irratic due to the heat stress. Thanks
Electric dryer, comes on but does not heat up.
Answer Hi Christina. I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. There is a thermistor part # 35001191 on the blower housing cover. It should read 10,000 ohms at room temperature of 77°. If not within 5% then change it. There is a safety fuses to the left of it. Make sure it is closed at 0 ohms. Not open or infinity. This will stop the heat. Check the thermostats on the side of the heater assy. part # 35001119. All fuses need to be at o-ohms, closed. They will open in a over heat or a shorted circuit or wire. Make sure the heater ohms out between 10-18 ohms and is not shorted to the casing. Ohm one side terminal to the casing at a time to make sure.
