Clothes dryer blowing thermal fuse - help
Posted by Eiron [Email] (more from Eiron) on Thu, 23 May 2019 21:21:49
I've got a 3-1/2 yr old Samsung dryer that has started behaving badly. A few months ago it tripped the high-temp thermostat. I checked the vent hose for blockages (it's only about 3 ft long), ensured the flaps on the outside vent cover were opening freely, and reset the thermostat. A few months later the thermal fuse blew. I went through the same checks, but this time also opened the tube housing the heating element. The element ohmed fine, but the plate it was mounted to was cracked. I ordered a new kit containing a heating element assembly, thermostat, and thermal fuse. It worked fine for a few weeks, but then the thermal fuse blew again. This time I added verifying and cleaning the thermistor and its companion thermostat to the list. (The thermistor had a coating of lint covering it.)
I hate to keep throwing parts at it without knowing what's causing the fuse failures. Before I install another thermal fuse, is there anything else I should check?
