Thanks for the inquiry about your dryer model 11070901990, I will be glad to assist. If you are asking the location of the thermostat, it depends on which one? There is a high limit thermostat located on the burner tube inside the dryer. There is a thermal fuse and a cycling thermostat on the back of the blower housing. When the dryer is cold all these should read infinity on your volt/ohm meter. I hope this helps, if you need additional help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.Ron H.

Thanks Ron for the quality of your reply. As you mention several thermostats, I question if they can all go bad. What we have is a dryer that stops before a cycle is completed. it cannot restart before at least 30 minutes cooling. This happens every time, on any heat cycle.It seems that the dryer gets very hot before stopping but I do not know the exact temperature. What could the problem be? I assume that a heat sensor is shutting down the dryer. is the sensor bad? is the thermostat bad? Also, can we still find spare parts for a 13 year old dryer?

Hi John, It sound like the motor is cutting off on its internal thermal protector. The thermostats that control heat will not cut the dryer off; there is however a thermal fuse that will shut the dryer down but it will not reset itself. Because of this I believe the motor is overheating, It may just need cleaning. Lint will collect around and in its air vents this will make the motor get to hot and shut down until it cools then it will restart and cycle the same way again. Try cleaning the motor> Ron H.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have problems with your dryer. The key to diagnosing a non heating gas dryer is knowing what the ignitor is doing. If the ignitor is not glowing the most likely cause is an open thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse can be access with the rear panel removed. This video will show you how to access it Gas Dryer Thermal Fuse . The fuse can be checked two ways. The proper way is to use a meter to check across the fuse for an open circuit. Checking continuity is what this is called.

Another method is to simply remove the two wires on the fuse, while the dryer is unplugged, and join them together. Put a little electrical tape around the connection and be sure it doesn't touch anything. You can carefully plug the unit in and run it to see if the ignitor glows and the unit heats. If it does then you will need to replace the fuse. If it does not then you need to replace the ignitor. This video will show you how to do this: Gas Dryer Ignitor . If you need to order parts, just click on this link: Sears Parts Direct . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
