Can I have the complete model number of the unit please?
I have the back of the dryer off and that number is XXXXX the top rear. It is a Kenmore but I see not mention of model name. I assume that the number provided can be referenced?
I removed the door switch yesterday. It was clicking when I pressed on it. I have a tested like this: http://www.amazon.com/Michigan-Industrial-Tools-110-460-Electric/dp/B000NYCBNM/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1380544448&sr=8-18&keywords=outlet+tester
I tried to test the wires coming in and it seemed like there was no power getting to them. Of course I could be doing something incorrectly, so I am open to suggestions.
I removed the thermal fuse and slipped each of the two wires off of it. I was unable to get a reading from those wires. I assume that would mean that there was no power making it to the thermal fuse?
Yes they were both blue
I am not sure. I have power at that point. My tool simply has two metal points and lights up when power is sensed. there is power at the terminal in the rear though
Ok. I will be unable to until tomorrow. Should we suspend this conversation until then?
