Kenmore 70 Series Dryer has no heat?
My Kenmore 70 Series Dryer (Model No. 110.66742500) has quit producing heat, and everything else seems to be functioning fine. We have a roof vent and I have inspected it on the roof and from the inside up to the roof with my duct cleaner/sweep. I went to the Sears Parts Store and purchased a new heating element, thermal cut-off, and fuse (as the rep told me the thermal cut-off could be the problem and/or possibly the fuze). I have removed the back panel of my dryer and have tested wires with my volt-meter and have taken apart the the heating element. All connections/wires seem to test good. The heating element coils are black, but I did not see any breaks in the coils, although the coils seem to be more frail than the replacement heating element I purchased. Attached are a couple of pictures I took with both heating elements in the picture for comparison. Would it be recommended to replace the heating element? How do you know if you need to replace the Thermal Cut-off or the Fuze? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, Ian
