How do I repair a dryer's thermal fuse?

I have a Kenmore 90 Series.

Unplug the dryer. Under the main panel you'll find the thermal fuse. You will have to unscrew the panel with a flathead screwdriver. Check the connections, two wires that are clipped to the fuse. Carefully pull them off. Once they are unclipped you can check them with your voltage meter. If the reading isn't Zero, the fuse needs replacing.

Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you conduct repair. Remove the wires leading to the thermal fuse by pulling on the connectors. Remove and discard the faulty thermal fuse. Replace it with a new one. Reassemble your dryer and restore power to the unit. Run your dryer through a cycle to make sure it is functioning.

Well you repair a dryers thermal fuse by replacing it. It's not really safe to do it by yourself. The best thing you should do is take your Kenmore series back to the store you bought it from. You should use your warranty to get them to replace it for you.

The Kenmore 90 series has a problem with the thermal fuse. The electrical circuit fuses or circuit breakers may have tripped. Heating element thermostat is faulty. Heating elements are faulty. Heating overheat cut-out switch has tripped out or is faulty. Some machines also have a replaceable thermal fuse that should be checked. Call a mechanic.

If the thermal fuse has gone out on your dryer then you will have to find the fuse box and remove it.
