Question and Answers

Q:

How do I check the thermal fuse and heating element for my dryer model 110.66652501?

A:

Your question suggests that the dryer is not heating even though it is running. Before checking the heating element and the thermal fuse, I recommend that you check the breakers. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of the 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer (shown by the red line in the wiring diagram below). If the second leg (yellow) of 120 volt power is missing, then the dryer will not heat. If the breakers are okay, I recommend checking the voltage at the outlet using the diagram in the third image. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to properly measure it.

If the breakers and the outlet are okay, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. Pull one wire off of the heating element and measure the resistance through the heating element with a volt/ohm meter (make sure that it is set properly to read resistance). The heating element should measure between 7.8 and 11.8 ohms. If the element is open (measures infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced. You can order the element from the Sears PartsDirect website.

The thermal fuse would keep the motor from running. It is not the other component that you need to check. You probably meant the thermal cut-off fuse. The second image below shows the location of this fuse. You can check it in a similar manner to the heating element. Remove one wire and measure the resistance across the leads of the thermal cut-off fuse. You should measure near zero ohms through these components. If it is open (infinite resistance) then it is blown and will need to be replaced along with the high limit thermostat (this component should have opened to prevent the thermal cut-off from blowing so it is assumed to be bad). If the thermal cut-off fuse is okay, you can check the high limit thermostat and the operating thermostat in the same manner. This may help you determine the cause of your dryer heating failure.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

Replacing thermostat on dryer. Is substituted part. Installation page that came with it shows one wire to harness... I have two... three wires total to therm.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Where did you come up with the part # 3390291 because I do not show this a substitute for any of the thermostats for your model dryer?

Based on the model number of the dryer provided, the 3390291 does not appear to be the correct part for your dryer and this is likely the issue.

Part # 3387134 is the operating thermostat that mounts on the blower housing.

Part # 3977767 is the high limit thermostat that mounts on the heater housing assembly near the element leads.

Part # 279816 is a substitute for part #3977393 which is the thermal cut-off thermostat that is mounted at the top of the heater box.

 I added a link to Searspartsdirect.com where you can view the parts for your Kenmore model 110.66652501 and see it is the wrong kit. Look at the "Bulkhead" page for the thermostats.

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

Thank you for your queston. I can understand the concern if the dryer continues to run with heat. When you replaced the timer and start switch, did you notice any corrosion or burned spots on the contacts or any damaged or burned wiring in the control panel or from the timer?  I would double check that and the connections at the motor as well. If the motor is not receiving the signal to shut off, that would be wiring.  I would also recommend checking the cycling thermostat and the thermal fuse, key#42 and #59 in the image below for resistance, One or both may be the issue. If the problem continues, please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.
