Q:

High Limit Thermostat 11067832794 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Here is the link that Yadira B. posted in the above response: Dryer not heating with new heater element. High Limit Themostat Open but what caused it to open? . That previous answer covers a failure that appears to be different than yours.

The damage that was caused to that high limit thermostat in your dryer could have been caused by a short circuit to the cabinet ground that caused high current flow through that high limit thermostat. I recommend that you unplug the dryer (or leave it unplugged) and check the heating element for damage. Measure the resistance through that element using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure between 7 and 13 ohms through the element. If it is electrically "open" (measures OL -- open load or infinite resistance) then the element will need to be replaced. In that situation, the element may have shorted out to the metal cabinet when it failed. That could have caused the high limit thermostat to melt.

If the heating element is okay, then may have a short to the metal cabinet in another part of that heating circuit. I posted a wiring diagram for that dryer in the image below with the heating circuit traced in red and green. The red line traces the 120 volt L1 leg of 240 volt power. The green line traces the opposing L2 leg of 120 volt power. You can check for a short to the metal cabinet by measuring the resistance between a leg of that circuit and the bare metal cabinet. Place one probe of your meter on a component lead and place the other probe on a spot of bare metal on the cabinet (such as the heater housing). If you need more help understanding how to check for a short in that circuit to the metal cabinet ground, let us know and we will assist you further with that test. If you do not find a short to the cabinet ground in that circuit then the high limit thermostat or one of the wires attached to it may have shorted out to the metal cabinet and could have caused this failure. I definitely recommend that you check for a short to the metal cabinet in that heating circuit before replacing that high limit thermostat.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Dryer Model 110.67832794 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the dryer (or leave it unplugged) when accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Q:

Heating element always on even after door open and dryer not tumbling, clothes very hot 11067832794 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

The thermostats will not cause this failure. You either have a broken heating element that is shorting out to the cabinet ground (metal in the dryer cabinet) or you have a defective motor centrifugal switch.  (The motor centrifugal switch should only be electrically "closed" from M1 to M2 when the dryer is running to complete the L2 circuit to the dryer heating element.)

I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the heating element first.  Here is a link for a Sears PartsDirect Repair Guide that shows how to access and replace the heating element in your dryer: How to Replace the Heating Element in an Electric Dryer.

If the heating element is physically broken, replace it as shown in the above repair guide.

If you see no physical damage to the heating element, check it using a volt/ohm meter (with the dryer still unplugged). The heating element should measure between 8 and 13 ohms of resistance. If the heating element is "open" (measure OL -- open load or infinite resistance) then replace the heating element as shown in the above repair guide.

If the heating element is okay, then you will likely need to replace the drive motor as shown in this repair guide: How to Replace a Dryer Drive Motor.

If you need more help, let us know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.
