there is one located on the heater housing and another on the blower housing. you need to check to see if they have continuity. also be sure the door switch is clicking. do you have a volt meter to make these checks?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Thank you. The door switch does click. I do not have a voltmeter. Could you please describe the location more specifically - may be with a diagram? Do I order the thermal fuse directly from Bosch? or are these the normal 2 flat pin type available at hardware stores?
