Hi my name isXXXXX can help you with your issue.
The resister unit that you are referring to is actually a thermal fuse.
They do blow on occasion replace the fuse and also the connectors that connect up to it make sure you also cut and splice as the directions tell you to and you should be good to go.
Good, I thought that it was a funny looking resister. Do you think this the problem?
Yes i do you have power in but nothing out so changing that will again power your unit
Where do I find the fuse?
Give me a minute and I will get the part number for you any appliance parts store will have these
Also any suggestion on where to get a new thermal unit.
You mean the fuse?
Sears parts stores will have them appliance parts pros appliance zone or type in appliance parts in your browser to bring up your local listings
Yes. sorry jumped to the conclusion you were refering to a seperate fuse rather than the thermal fuse.
PART NUMBER:(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
Substitution:(NNN) NNN-NNNNLearn why
this is the part number for that thermal fuse
Make sure that you follow the instructions and cut out the terminals and splice it with the kit or it will blow again
Is this something that radio shack would carry?
Thanks Tim, I'll give a try.
