I don't have a voltage tester and don't know how to use it........I have replaced the ones on the heating element tube.

ok so then you are just replacing part and not testing to see if they are bad .a voltage meter can be purchased at home improvement store or hardware store for less then $10.00Just the price of a cheap meter will pay for itself in just one part replaced that was good.You have the operating thermostat on the blower housing item #42 the temperature control switch is on the console .Make sure it is not set on air dry
