Default Dryer Thermal Fuse
Model Number: ALE643RAW   Brand: Amana   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The thermal fuse on my amana dryer is blown. I have tested it with a multimeter and I am certain it is the issue. The heating element and high limit thermostat are showing resistance and continuity respectively. My question is . . .what do I need to do to make sure this does not happen again? There is a reason the fuse blew, right? I know I need to clean out the vent, but I am nervous that this will keep happening because our dryer vents to the roof and everything I have read states that those get clogged easily. Do you have any suggestions or tips before I replace the fuse and hope this does not keep happening. Thank you.

The dryer vent, especially if it goes on top of the roof, must be cleaned professionally all the way though the outlet at least once in five years. So you have to hire a pro to do it for you.

The dryer itself has to be cleaned inside once a year. It is very important for safety and its good performance.

Would not hurt if you will replace the cycling thermostat together with the thermal fuse. It is located on the blower housing cover.

Keep the dryer vent and the dryer itself clean and everything should be fine.
