Is there a pilot light. What do I do
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 1 year ago.

The thermal fuse shuts off power to the dryer if the dryer overheats. If the thermal fuse has blown, the dryer will not heat. To determine if the thermal fuse has blown, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the thermal fuse does not have continuity, replace it.
