By now it has to be frustrating that you cannot get the Kenmore dryer working. The kit you received should have been replaced as a kit. The expert will be with you shortly to confirm what may be happening with the dryer.

Hi Anthony,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

If the thermal cutoff has opened again the most likely cause of this is a restricted vent. If the exhaust cannot get out of the dryer, the thermal cutoff will blow due to high heat. I recommend cleaning the dryer vent to the outside of your home. You will need to replace the cutoff again, and it is recommended to replace all parts of the kit.

The part you ordered appears to be correct per the model number you listed.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to purchase the Thermal cut-off fuse kit for your Kenmore model number 110.66612690 dryer .

I hope this is helpful, and if I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.

I know how discouraging it is when your spending a lot of time and money on parts that are not fixing your dryers heating issue. I researched your question and was able to find a couple links that will help you further diagnose your dryer that is not heating. I attached both links below. I hope all goes well.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I added an image below of the wiring diagram. I traced the heating circuit in Black and Red. I circled the components in Red which has the potential to fail and break the electrical circuit to the heating element.

The thermal fuse (key#9) is connected in series with the motor and if it had failed, the motor would not run. In order to diagnose which component is faulty will require testing the component for continuity with an Ohm meter. You must disconnect the wires from the component before placing the Ohm meter leads across the male terminals and checking it for continuity.

I also circled the location of the components in red which will need to be disconnected and tested for continuity. Whichever component you find that does measure continuity, replace that component. NOTE: Be sure to disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Joe. The part i replaced blew again after 3 days of use. The kit came from parts select http://www.partselect.com/PS334299-Whirlpool-279816-Thermal-Cut-Off-Kit.htm?SourceCode=7&SearchTerm=11066612690&ModelNum=11066612690 it came with 1 other part that i did not change as mine appears OK on the ohm meter. My question is what would cause the Thermal cut off to fry again? was it my fault for not changing both parts that came in the kit?.

A:

Anthony: Always replaced both parts that come with the kit. Be sure to check the vent hose, vent screen and the outside vent cap for any blockages or restrictions too. You should also check the heating element too. Make sure it's not broken and shorted to the heater housing or it will heat, but the element will stay on when it should turn off. Disconnect the power cord from the dryer before making a visual inspection of the heating element.

Hi Tykara,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From your description you likely have a bad heating element. The heating element should have a red wire and a red /white wire. The plain red wire is the L2 side. If the red wire is burned off the element you can replace the spade connector on the wire. I am including a wiring diagram in the images below. But first I recommend checking the breakers (or fuses) in your house electrical panel first. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, then the dryer will not heat.

If the breakers are okay, then I recommend checking the voltage at the outlet using the image in the diagram below. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage yourself if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it using a volt/ohm meter. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

If the outlet voltage is okay, then I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking the wiring connection on the terminal block on the back of the dryer. Check the continuity through the power cord as well. Then you will need to check the red wire from the heating element to the motor and from the motor to the terminal block.

Then you can ohm the heating element. You should read between 8 and 12 ohms if the heater is good. If the element is open, you will need to replace the heater.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details, in a reply to this post.
