matt50025002 :

hello, are you online right now, i would like to answer your questions

Customer:

Yes I am on line now.

matt50025002 :

Great, since the dryer is 20 years old,I would consider buying a new dryer. Will you be replacing the fuse on your own, or will you be hiring a repair service?

Customer:

I would replace it myself,but I think my wife is going to win! and we will be getting a new one.But just for my own knowledge is it advisable to replace these fuses?

matt50025002 :

For that particular fuse, yes you can easily replace it. If you did hire a repair man, his cost per hour is usually around 75 dollars, plus cost for the part.

matt50025002 :

I also suggest getting a new dryer, only because, other parts may start breaking down in the future. This fuse can be the start of many repairs to come. Also new dryers are pretty affordable these days, you can even get a newer dryer used for free, if someone is moving or gets a new one.

Customer:

O.K. Thanks for your help,will buy new one.

matt50025002 :

Thanks
