Questions with Thermal Cutoffs (Thermal Fuses)

  • Ask: How does a thermal cutoff fuse work?

    Answer: A thermal fuse is a cutoff which uses a one-time fusible link. ... Unlike electrical fuses or circuit breakers, thermal fuses only react to excessive temperature and not to excessive current (unless the excessive current is sufficient to cause the thermal fuse itself to heat up to the trigger temperature).

  • Ask: Can I bypass a thermal fuse?

    Answer: The thermal fuse will look like a thin strip of white plastic with a wire coming out of each end. In order to bypass the thermal fuse, use electrical tape to tape the two ends together. The thermal fuse will then be bypassed. Turn the dryer on to a heat cycle for no more than 90 seconds.

  • Ask: What causes a thermal fuse to fail?

    Answer: The leading cause of thermal fuse burnout is obstructed airflow. Check the exhaust path for excessive lint or debris all the way to the exit point of the exhaust pipe. Check the blower wheel to make sure it isn't broken or clogged up. This can be done by using "cool down" or "air fluff" mode.

  • Ask: How do I know if my thermal fuse is blown?

    Answer: Touch the left multimeter lead to the left side of the thermal fuse; touch the right multimeter lead to the right side of the fuse. Keep an eye on the multimeter needle; a needle that fails to move indicates a blown thermal fuse. If this is the case, don't fret: thermal fuse replacement is a simple task.
