Unhappy GE gas dryer control panel fails (dead/shorted)
Model Number: DPSB620GC3WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The control panel became flaky after about four years. I replaced the panel and all was well.

Fourteen months later the panel died. No indicators (LEDS) were lit and no control had any affect. I discovered a blown fuse on the control board. Determined that there was a hard short by temporarily jumping around the fuse on the control board with clip leads and another fuse. Big spark if the wires were touched so it was clear there was a short on the board.

The replacement unit later failed in the same way. The dryer worked fine after each control board replacement.

What causes this type of failure of the control board on a GE dryer? Is there anything that I should check on the dryer?

Thanks,
Dennis
