Q:

how do i know if my non-resetable thermal fuse is good 11073912100 Kenmore Gas dryer

A:

Thank you for being a valued Sears member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the non-resettable thermal fuse in your Kenmore Dryer model 11073912100. I will be happy to help you with this.

Safety Warning: Be sure to disconnect the power supply to the dryer before beginning this test to prevent the risk of injury from electrical shock. 

If the dryer drum is turning, but there is no heat, then the problem is likely the fuse. It is located on the blower housing. The thermal fuse can be tested with an ohm meter for continuity. Set your ohm meter to the Rx1 scale. Remove the wires from the thermal fuse terminals. Touch the leads from the ohm meter to the thermal fuse terminals. An infinite reading means the fuse needs to be replaced. The part only needs to be replaced if it has blown. I recommend testing it before ordering it. I have included the link to order the part in case you need it.

Thank you for your question.  This information helps when shopping for a replacement dryer.  Information on this dryer is sparse due to the age, but it appears your super plus capacity dryer is 7.0 CU FT.  If you would like to shop other super capacity dryers, Sears is a good place to start.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer not heating. Here are a few troubleshooting tips that may help you. First try drying a load in a timed cycle to see if it will dry normally. If it does, then you could have a problem with the moisture sensor or the electronic control board. If you experience the same drying problems in a timed cycle, then I recommend checking the venting. Make sure that the lint screen is clean. Check the flexible vent hose in back of the dryer for kinks or clogs. Check the exhaust duct to the outside of the home for clogs or restrictions. To eliminate venting as a possible cause of your problems, you can run a short test cycle with a medium load of damp towels.

Although a gas dryer should normally always be properly vented to the outside of the home for safety purposes, you can temporarily disconnect the vent and allow the dryer to vent directly into your laundry room to check for proper cycling of the burner. Check the temperature of the air coming out of the exhaust vent. Measure the temperature at which the burner cycles off. Wait for it to cycle back on and check the cycling temperature. Check to see if it is drying the towels properly. If the burner is cycling off at about 150 to 155 degrees and back on about 10 to 15 degrees below that, then the operating thermostat is working properly. If the towels are drying properly, then a problem with the exhaust vent duct system is causing your drying problem. NOTE: Reconnect the flexible hose behind the dryer to properly vent the dryer exhaust to the outside of the home following this temporary test.

If the dryer temperature goes up to 200 degrees before shutting off, then you will need to replace the operating thermostat (Key 42 on the BULKHEAD subcomponent page on the parts diagram at Sears Parts Direct ). To access this component, unplug the dryer, shut off the gas supply and remove the bottom front service panel. There are clips between the front panel and bottom service panel that are about 4 inches in from each side. Push a putty knife or flat tip screw driver in between the panels to release these clips. Pull the service panel out and off of the dryer.

If the burners ignite the first time and then do not ignite on subsequent ignition attempts, then it is likely that you have weak gas valve coils (Keys 13 and 14 on the BURNER ASSEMBLY page). If you need to replace these coils, I recommend using the kit (part number 279834). It is less expensive and has both coils. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, just click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
