Ok you siad that the thermal fuse had continuity what was the ohm reading on that?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

4 ohm

Expert:  william replied 5 years ago.

Ok that shows that is bad the thermal fuse is suppose to read 0 so this means that the thermal fuse is bad.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
if a fuse is blown than you have zero ohm because the circuit is open.
Expert:  william replied 5 years ago.
NO, sorry its the other way around, the meter should indicate a closed circuit 0 this also goes for the high limit thermastat and the thermal cutoff.
Expert:  william replied 5 years ago.

Here something for you to read.

Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermal fuse should produce a reading of zero.
