Default Short-circuited something while cleaning heating element
Model Number: DDP1275FAWAD   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

My GE dryer (Model DDP1275FAWAD) was working fine. It's over 20 years old. I opened up the front lower panel to access the guts of the dryer in order to clean out the lint built up within, from years of use. Pulled out fistfuls of lint. As I was reaching into the heating coil 'barrel' with a paintbursh to get out the lint within, the metal part of the brush touched the heating coil, and that set off a spark. I didn't think much of it. Finished cleaning the thing, put it back together, and put some clothes in to dry. The dryer tumbles, but there's no heat. I believe I short-circuited something and blew a fuse. I just don't know which fuse I blew. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
