Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
I'm not sure how to check the thermal fuse with a meter. What kind of reading am I looking for, or, can I temporarily by-pass the fuse to see if the dryer runs and if it does verify that I need a new thermal fuse? Thanks.
I have one more follow-up question then I'll go ahead and click the "Accept Answer" button (I guess that's how you get paid.?.). Thanks for your patience. I don't really know how this works. Will I still get an opportunity to ask you a question after I hit accept answer or no.
After I test the voltage at various points, if I still am not sure, in what order would you reccomend I replace various parts. I new dryer costs me 2 grand here and if I buy a motor, a switch, etc . . . and it cost me a fracation of that, I'm happy. The motor for example, I can order online for $130, the switch $20, etc . . .
So, one last time, what would be the most likely to go first in the situation I plugged it in to the wrong volatge, and what are some key things you'd replace to try it like that. I realize you would have to guess here. Thanks. I'll be done after this!
