Question Fire Hazard?
Model Number: 11067732794   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This drier stopped working for the second time - I had replaced the non-resettable thermal fuse about 4 years ago and all had been well.

Two days ago the same thing happened - except this time. after it stopped, my wife checked a couple of things then walked away from it. About 30 mins later, she smelt 'hot metal', checked it and discovered it was extremely hot. To cut a long story short, I unplugged it, went and got a new thermal link, replaced it then plugged it back in. The heater IMMEDIATELY came on - the door was open and the motor was not running. I pressed the start button - the motor started and the drier appeared to work.

Apparently the interlock that prevents the heater from being powered when the motor/fan is not running is dead.

Where is that interlock? Is it part of the motor switch? Is it an airflow detector vane in the fan path? The diagram I have is not specific. Wahat do I need to buy?

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks!

Your motor switch shorted and they do not sell the switch, you have to buy the whole motor. That part # is AP3094245

Thanks! I'd kind of figured that out - went to Sears this lunchtime - found the motor with the pluggable switch securely attached. Why? The motor still works - ah well!

I'm now deciding whether I want to invest the $110 or so in the motor plus the aggravation of installing it - or just give up and get a gas dryer!

Thanks for the help, tho'

I share your disgust; I pull the switches off these when I junk them, have a few lying around; would never sell one, but would use one in a repair!
