Question and Answers

Q:

thermal fuse keeps failing 11062064100 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model number 11062064100; check the air flow from the exhaust vent to the outside of the house. Also if the heating element is broken and the wire is touching the housing than half the element will heat and it will short the fuse.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Please reread my original question. I checked the lint screen, air way, and exhaust system. All clear! Disconnected the heating element and checked leg to ground. No grounding. I have since checked the thermistor using a glass bulb thermometer at three heat settings. It was on target to spec. I also mentioned the first fuse blew within 5 minutes and the second one blew on the second load which means it ran at least 30 minutes. If part of the heater element was shorted to ground, I believe the fuse would blow immediately. Is that not correct? I even removed the mother board and cleaned it to be sure it was not running hot. I am out of options???

Q:

failed thermal cut-off fuse 11062064100 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 11062064100 and a few things will cause the thermal cut off to blow. The first and most common is the lack of airflow. If air is restricted, the element will over heat. I recommend cleaning the lint filter, pull the dryer out form the wall, and disconnect the vent. Then start the dryer on high heat. The exhaust temperature should rise to about 160 or so and cool down to 120 then back on. If this is what the dryer does, we know the dryer is functioning properly and the problem is the vent. If the temperature does way above 160 degrees, I suspect a shorted element or shorted heater relay in the console. 


To check the element unplug the dryer and remove the wires from the element. Then ohm each terminal of the element to ground. You should not get a reading. If you do, the element is defective. If the element checks ok, move to the heater relay on the control board. I have provided you with the instructions for accessing the relay below. With the dryer still unplugged, remove the wires from the relay and ohm the terminals. You should have an open or ol reading. If it shows closed, the relay is defective. Here is a link that will help troubleshoot the issue you are having.
