Question and Answers

Q:

My temperaturre selector does not appear to be wired correctly from the factory 110.66722690

A:

According to your details, the blue and violet wires are correctly connected to the temperature selector switch. The blue wire provides line voltage to the thermostat heater circuit. The temperature selector switch is a variable resistor that controls the thermostat heater on the operating thermostat. A wire runs from the timer to the theromstat heater on the operating thermostat. The other wire on the thermostat heater is connected to the neutral side of the dryer circuit. The thermostat heater heats up to "fool" the operating thermostat into cycling the dryer heater at lower temperatures when the variable resistor is set in a manner that allows that thermostat heater to be heating. Your details seem to indicate that the circuit is wired correctly. If the dryer is not cycling at lower temperatures, then the reisistor or the thermostat heater could be defective.

I hope that this explanation helps. If you need further assistance, let us know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.

maybe you didn't understand that the violet wire is only electrically connected to the timer switch - there is NO connection between it and the temperature selector.

Hello Scott. Here is a link for the image of the wiring schematic for that dryer: http://s29.postimg.org/62mm2439z/Dryer_Wiring1.jpg That diagram may help you trace the temperature selector circuit. Unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. You can check for continuity between the violet wire connected to the temperature selector switch and the thermostat heater that is on the top of the operating thermostat at the bottom of the dryer. Remove the back panel to access the operating thermostat/thermostat heater. The thermostat heater should have 2 violet wire connected to it. You should measure continuity between one of the violet wires on that thermostat heater and the temperature selector switch in the console.

I have the wiring diagram and understand that the purple wire should have continuity with the thermostat heater, but my concern is that the violet wire going into the white plastic plug that plugs into the back temperature selector switch makes NO physical connection to any of the pins that come out of the back of the temperature selector switch - it does not go into the correct hole in the white plug, so it would be impossible for the selector - working or not - to add any resistance between the blue and violet wires - the violet wire is not and evidently never has been connected since 1997 when I purchased the dryer new. I don't know how to say it or ask any other way, but when only one wire connects to a switch and the switch is not connected to ground (as is the case here), the switch cannot switch or vary anything it is electrically a dead end and it has evidently been this way since 1997. Whether or not the blue wire has voltage or the violet wire has continuity with the thermostat heater is irrelevant until the violet wire actually has continuity with the selector switch, which is not the case now and never has been. Is it possible to call you, for you to call me, or to send you a picture that would be worth a thousand words.

Q:

Kenmore dryer wont start

A:

It can be frustrating when you open the dryer door and find out the towels still not dry and the dryer won't restart. There are several components that may be the cause of the dryer not coming on, like described in the link below. Hope this is helpful while waiting for an expert response.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the dryer is getting the proper voltage I suspect the thermal fuse has failed. The thermal fuse is connected a series circuit with the voltage supply to the motor. If the thermal fuse fails, the drum light will work but the dryer will not start.

The thermal fuse is located behind the panel at the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is mounted on the blower housing. I added an image below of the dryer to reference the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is labeled key #59 in the image. The thermal fuse can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel.

If you find the thermal fuse faulty, the thermal fuse #3392519 for model 110.66722690 Kenmore dryer can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.
