Default Kenmore 90 dryer keeps blowing fuse
Model Number: 110.60902990   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

Kenmore 90 series dryer runs but does not heat up. So, I took it apart and and found a lot of lint clogging the machine. Cleaned it out completely and replaced the Hi limit fuse. It ran for 2 weeks (10-loads) and the fuse blew. Thought my mistake was not replacing the Hi limit thermostat, so I replaced both on the second go. The fuse blew on one load. In taking it apart again noticed that there was a gap on the O-ring foam gasket (because I put the assembly together incorrectly) So, this time I checked the cycling thermostat on the stove burner (a 4 on a 10 scale) The cycling thermostat opened with a click and the multimeter showed no continuity. Replaced the fuse and the Hi Limit Thermostat and put the assembly together correctly. Fuse blew on one load. I also checked while the dryer ran and the flow coming out of the vent was good. I also ran the dryer with the bottom panel off and watched the coils turn red as they should. I also checked the felt gaskets which were good and the drum screws which needed to be tightened.

I am at a loss as to what to try next. Any ideas would be welcome. The wife is going to want to buy another dryer when she hears today's news.

Hi.

Which fuse are you talking about?
The thermal cut off kit Part number: 279769

Part number: 279769


Or the thermal fuse Part number: 3390719

Part number: 3390719


Check if the heating element not damaged or touching the housing.

Simon.

Hi,

I tested the heating element and it looks good -- no breaks or damage and no spots on the sides of the housing, no burn marks. It does not appear to be grounded in any way. It tests at 10.2 ohms. It tests open from each terminal to ground.
Perhaps it is the cycling thermostat? Part # 3387134. There are 2 pair of wires going into this device. The large pair tests at .4 ohms (on 200 ohm setting); and the small pair tests at 6.97 ohms (on the 20K setting).

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, my prior post did not go through.

The fuse that blows is the thermal cut off kit Part number: 279769
The other fuse tests as good.

One more question on the cycling thermostat part number 3387134. The replacement part has a 250 degree cutoff. The one I took out of the machine is labeled L 155 - 25F -- so it cuts off at 155 degrees. Wouldn't that make a difference? Shouldn't I get a part with the same 155 cutoff? I read somewhere that the exhaust from a dryer is between 140 - 150 degrees, no where near 250.

Hi.

Did you remove and clean the air duct asm.?

Part number: 3387911

Part number: 3387911


Did you clean the filter housing?

The thermostat 3387134 is marked L155-25F, check the picture Part number: 3387134

Part number: 3387134


Try to use the dryer with the vent hose disconnected from the dryer and see if that makes any difference.

Simon.
