Kenmore 110.66812690 electric dryer wont spin, heating element works
Posted 16 February 2012 - 12:24 PM
Our dryer is not working.
Then heating element is on with the door open or closed.
The motor does not run under any circumstance.
I have checked several components with the multi meter
Door switch - works properly
Start switch - works properly
Thermal fuses - work properly except the one that looks like this http://www.repaircli...er=110.66812690 Which i will replace.
The motor spins freely when spun by hand.
The thing that concerns/puzzles me is that the heating element is coming on even with the door open or closed. The only way to make it turn off is putting the timer switch in one of the "off" positions or unplugging the whole unit. One of the wires that connects to the heating element appears some what melted or that it has been overheated.
Any suggestions appreciated.

(bad) Heater Element partially shorted to chassis (ground)
... heating element is coming on even with the door open or closed.
That will cause that Thermal Fuse to blow (preventing Motor run)

I will replace the heating element and the thermal fuse.

Boy I'm lucky my wife figured out that something was wrong before it caught fire.
I'll try and post a picture.
