Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with the dryer. The part that has failed is called an M.O.V. (metal oxide varistor). The manufacture does not give the specifications of the M.O.V. I recommend closely looking at both sides of the M.O.V. to see if you can find any numbers. You can also check with an electronic supply store. They might be able to match it up for you. You can try to replace the part but the dryer could have another problem, which shorted the M.O.V. in the first place.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thanks for the reply but since the part also blackened the electronics and as you say, it may have also damaged other parts so, the decision was made to junk it and purchase new which I was going to do anyway.

Q:

Why does my gas Kenmore model 110.97595520 dryer run but not heat?

A:

When a gas dryer runs but doesn't heat the most likely cause and the first thing to check is the thermal fuse.

If the igniter is not glowing and the dryer is running then I'd recommend checking the thermal fuse first.

The thermal fuse, and the valve, is accessed by removing the lower access panel. The first thing to check is does the igniter glow. If the igniter is glowing then the heater relay, thermal fuse and hi-limit thermostat are all okay. See the wiring diagram for this dryer in the image below to help with this.

If the igniter is glowing and then clicks off but there is no flame then the gas coils or valve is most likely the problem.

If the igniter doesn't glow then the heater relay, thermal fuse, hi-limit thermostat, flame sensor or igniter is bad but the most likely is the thermal fuse.

The fuse can be checked with a volt/ohm meter if you have access to one and are comfortable and confident using it.

The 2nd image shows how to access the thermal fuse and thermostats on this dryer. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

The thermal fuse can be checked without a volt meter if extreme caution is used. Without a meter you can remove the red and red/white wires from the thermal fuse and join (jump) them together. Put some electrical tape around the connections and don't let the wires touch any metal then very carefully plug the dryer in and run it and see if it heats. The hi-limit thermostat can be checked the same way.

If everything below checks okay then the problem could be with the heater relay in the console.

I hope this information helps to resolve this particular problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore solid-state electronic gas dryer start?

A:

I don't see the operating instructions available online and the hard copy is no longer available. Although I cannot specifically advise you on setting a new cycle, I recommend attempting to start a cycle without the custom memory. Set up a regular timed cycle and see if the dryer will start.

Make sure that the door is closing properly. The door switch could be preventing the dryer from starting. More advanced checks of the door switch on this dryer would require the ability to safely access the switch and the technical ability to test the switch using a volt/ohm meter.

I provided a wiring diagram for your dryer below. You indicated that you are not a technician. With the limited technical information available on this model of dryer, it may be difficult to diagnose and repair. I recommend contacting a technician in Brazil to diagnose the dryer. The technician may be able to test the door switch and other dryer components using the wiring diagram below.

If the door switch is okay, then you could have a problem with the motor relay or the belt switch that is preventing the dryer from running. You could also have a failed electronic control board or a bad motor. A wiring failure between the components could also cause this problem.

If you cannot find a technician to help you and you need to continue to diagnose this failure yourself, resubmit your question with additional details.
