Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer blows the thermal fuse. The vent is Clean. The vent is Clean. 11072082100 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model11072082100; If you have access to a thermometer you can jump the thermal fuse out and run the dryer and check the temperatures. Be sure the dryer is unplugged and no voltage is present. By jump I mean remove both wires off the fuse and join them together and wrap with electrical tape. On high heat in the exhaust the temperature should vary from 160 on the high side to 130 on the low side. The fuse can be jumped for a moment to check the dryer but do not use the dryer with the fuse jumped out. The thermal fuse is a safety device and the dryer is not meant to be used without it.

Overloading the dryer can restrict the air flow and without good air flow the thermal fuse will blow.

The dryer should not heat when the motor is not running. If the dryer heats when the motor is not running then the motor switch is bad but if the heat comes on and the blower is not then the fuse will blow.

Q:

blown thermal fuse 11072082100 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model 11072082100; Clogged or restricted exhaust vent air flow is the most frequent cause of a thermal fuse blowing. Check the lint screen for lint or a build-up of debris that could be inhibiting air flow through the dryer. Wash the lint screen with water and a nylon brush and then thoroughly dry it and replace it in the lint screen housing. Check the flexible vent hose behind the dryer for kinks or clogs. Check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of the home for restrictions. You may need to have a service clean the duct system.

Q:

What portions of the model number matter?

A:

I know how important it is to have as much useful information about your appliance as possible so that it is easier to find replacement parts and part numbers. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I did manage to find a link in where you can enter your model number and the owners manual from the Manage My Life website. Hope this helps!

That's the same link that I posted on my original question. I have a model 110.74082201. The web site shows this particular manual applying for 11072082101, 11074084200 and 11074082200 (and others) One model ends in 2101 instead of 2201. One model ends in 84200 instead of 82201. One model ends in 2200 instead of 2201. The manual seems close, but I'm not sure...

Hi John,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

The first 5 digits after the "110." are the ones that really matter as far as for the Owners' manual. The link you added is to an Owners' Manual for the same type of dryer.

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

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
