Question and Answers

Q:

What is the difference between different thermostats on a Kenmore Gas Dryer?

A:

That thermostat on the inlet drum from the gas flame (part 279048) is a high limit safety thermostat that is rated to "open" at 205 degrees. The other 2 thermostats (part 694674) are operating thermostats. Those replacement thermostats are adjustable. The original 2 thermostats on that outlet were rated at 140 and 150 degrees. The adjustable replacement thermostats need to be adjusted to those temperatures using the information that was included with that part. If the high limit thermostat is switched with one of the operating thermostats, this could cause heating problems in the dryer. If the two operating thermostats on the blower housing are switched between themselves in that same location, then that should not have much of an affect as long as they are adjusted to the proper temperature. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

NOTE: Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.
