Thank you very much!!!

I have an open Thermal fuse. I jumped it and everything fires up fine.

I cleaned and vacuumed the entire unit, and will pick up a new fuse on tuesday.

Any other ideas why this opened?

Again, thanks very much....the small investment in your site is pricless!!!

Check your vent system completely from the dryer lint filter housing all the way to the outside of the dwelling. A restricted vent is the # 1 cause for this fuse to blow.

Dryer Vent

Vent should be rigid metal.

Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK, if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.

NO plastic

NO PVC

NO screws

Foil Duct Tape is OK.

With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F

Check / clean the Dryer Vent

Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.

Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.

If you have a Harbor Freight Store near you,

click on picture $ 4.99  sometimes on sale for $ 2.99
