I have a Kenmore gas dryer model #9757 6200 75762. It runs but does not heat up. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Make: Kenmore Series 70Model: 9757 6200 75762
please resend the model number from inside the door please .. should start with 110.
Here it is:110 97576200 75762
when you run it does it have any heat inside at all
no heat at all, thanks.
when you start it do you hear a click from the inside after a few seconds
no, no click from the inside.
remove the back panel and on the right hand side from behind beside the blower duct there is a small white thermal-fuse ,, part number(NNN) NNN-NNNNand it cost about $15 and you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you ,, replace it and you will have heat again ,,, thanks and have a great easter.Larry
Larry, can I pay you after I replace the thermal fuse?
sure .. no problem and if i can help more feel free to ask
Thanks very much Larry. I will do as you suggest, replace the thermal fuse and more than gladly pay if/when that works. I'm assuming I can log back onto the justanswer.com website at a later time and pay. Is that correct?Have a very nice Easter yourself. I appreciate your sage advice. Best,Patrick
yes you can log back in and come back to this post when you get ready
I will do that.Again, thanks and Happy Easter, Larry.Patrick
if you like you can pull the two wires off and stick them together and try the dryer and see if it works while i'm still on line and we will know
Now that was a good idea. Yes, it does generate heat now. I'm very impressed, Larry. Now I don't need to wait to see if a new thermal fuse will work, do I?Do you have any idea as to what caused the fuse to burn out in the first place?
no but most of the time its due to the vent hose or the vent duct to the outside being stopped up ,, just replace it and you will be good to go / thanks
