Default Melted Wiring on electric dryer
Model Number: 796.80272900   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

Hello, and thanks for taking the time to read this.

My electric dryer recently stopped heating. It still powers on and cycles but there is no heat. I unplugged it and started to diagnose and immediately found a melted L2 connection. It is melted on both sides of the connection plate (ie the 10/3 cord and the red cable of the wiring harness).

Question1: Do you think this is the problem or the result of a bigger problem? Maybe a short circuit in the [something] caused the melted cable? I'm surprised an internal fuse wasn't tripped, though.

Question 2: Do I need to replace the wiring harness and the 10/3 cord or is it possible to patch in with equivalent gauge? I would just cut the 10/3 cord a bit shorter and not patch.

Thank you!
