Where is it?
Appliance Technician: S.E.Thomas, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
there are two of them on this model. the first is on the side of the element and the other is on the blower housing just to the left of the element. in this pic they are numbers 47 and 59.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
47 and 59 seem okay, but 42 doesn't show any resistance
Appliance Technician: S.E.Thomas, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
that is a thermistor and will not show continuity. how about 48?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
48 shows resistance also
Appliance Technician: S.E.Thomas, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
when you say resistance are these all showing full continuity? also are you removeing the wires when testing?
