Question and Answers


Dryer is not heating 11076902693 Kenmore Gas dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer not heating.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Gas Dryer model number 11076902693.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

All items can be checked with a volt meter for continuity.
When a gas dryer isn't heating there are a few things to look at.
In the burner system you have
1.  The ignitor key number 4 on burner page
2.  The pair of coils 13 & 14 on burner page
Behind the blower there is
3.  The thermistor key number 42 on blower page
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs. "Please resubmit" if there are any further questions or statements.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our

When it comes to locating parts on your appliance owners manuals are the best thing to have. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I found your owners manual in the Manage My Life website. I have attached the link below. Have a nice day!

Hi Ricardo,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing. Here is a video that demonstrates replacing the thermal fuse in a dryer like yours; Video . You do not have to remove the front panel if you can reach around behind the lint screen duct. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The dryer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to purchase the thermal fuse for your Kenmore model number 110.76902693 dryer .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.

Why does my Kenmore gas dryer 11076902693 runs hot?


The clothes getting to hot is usually caused by a faulty operating thermostat or a venting problem.

Check your lint screen and exhaust vent system for restrictions. If you use dryer softener sheets, I recommend washing the lint screen with water and drying it thoroughly. This will remove softener residue that can build up from these dryer sheets. Check the flexible vent hose behind the dryer for kinks or restrictions. Check the exhaust duct to the outside of the home for restrictions.

The dryer will need to run through the cycle and shut off in a normal amount of time. If it runs for 5 hours then it is not the thermostat causing the clothes to overheat.

If you have a thermometer you can check the temperature in the exhaust. Remove the vent hose and check the temperature coming out the back while running the dryer on high heat with a medium load of wet laundry inside. The normal range is 150 degree for the high temp. This can vary by 5 degrees plus or minus. If the dryer is cycling properly with the vent removed, then the problem could be caused by restricted venting to the outside of the home. Although a gas dryer should always be vented properly to the outside of the home, I recommend letting the load run for a while with the laundry room ventilated to see if it dries normally and does not overheat. If this happens, then you will need to thoroughly clean the ducts to the outside of the home. This should fix your drying problem in these circumstances.

All parts on this dryer are accessed from the front of the machine. Unplug the dryer from the wall so there is no power. The access panel across the bottom of the dryer can be removed by pushing down on it to clear the clips on top of the access panel and tilt it out.

With the panel removed you will have access to the thermostat. It is located on the back side of the blower housing. It has two red wires on it. It is mounted with a 1/4 inch nut.

The part number for the thermostat is 3387134 and is available online at Sears PartsDirect .

Fred, thank you for your helpful comments. I think the dryer is running within spec and it's likely my venting layout (can not be changed) while in spec, is at the limit with length and 90 degree bends. The easiest solution is probably to change the thermostat to one that operates slightly cooler. Can you advise the best part to use?
