Think of it as a link, a wire, that in a dryer typically connects power source to heat source (heating element). A thermal fuse is there as a safety device to prevent dryer from overheating (or worse). When it senses that the temperature went over a certain limit, the wire will break, thus cutting power to the heating element.

Common causes for a thermal fuse to break:

1. Clogged dryer vent - will cause overheating and raise temperature inside the dryer, triggering the break in the fuse.
2. Faulty hi-limit thermostat
3. Nothing lasts forever. Sometimes a bad fuse is just a bad fuse.

So, if a fuse goes out, check the vent. You may want to replace the hi-limit t-stat just in case also.

Hope this helps.

Hi Vonda,

The piece you are talking about is a timer resistor. It has nothing to do with the heating problem.

There are three parts which you have to check for continuity:

The hi-limit thermostat (#3 on the break down diagram).

The thermal fuse (#5 on the break down diagram).

The cycling thermostat (#14 on the break down diagram).

If any of these parts is open - it has to be replaced.

- The part number for the hi-limit thermostat is AP311455

- The part number for the thermal fuse (including the hi-limit thermostat) is AP415996

- The part number for the cycling thermostat is AP311676

Gene.

I have a Frigidaire Dryer Model CER3600AS1 that is still blowing out air, but it's only cold air. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this so I can try and get it fixed?

Default Lubrication for Drum Bearing?

I just bought the AP2619300 drum bearing kit for a GE DS4550 dryer. I replaced the original bearing a few years ago, but didn't replace the front slides and I think that contributed to the recurring bearing failure. The instructions with the kit say to clean all old grease off the diffuser. They don't say anything about greasing the new bearing, which is dry. Has something changed, i.e. if there was originally grease and now there isn't, or did they forget to say to grease the bearing? If it is supposed to be greased, with what?

huha69,

The first thing I would check is 240V at the power outlet. If one of the power legs is missing - the motor will still work, but the heater would not.

If there is nothing wrong, you have to check for continuity: the heater (#15 on the break down diagram), the hi-limit thermostat (#33 on the break down diagram) and the cycling thermostat (# 15 on the break down diagram).

Any part with an open circuit has to be replaced.

The following article on our forum will explain in detail how to run a continuity test using either an analog meter or a digital meter – How to check continuity with Ohmmeter.

- The part number for the heater assembly is AP2107129

- The part number for the hi-limit thermostat is AP2131477

- The part number for the cycling thermostat is AP2106564

awaschka,

Even the new redesigned GE drum bearing does not need any lubrication, you can use a grease to lower a friction.

- The part number for one of a good lubricant is AP3140802
