How do I disassemble...

How do I disassemble my GE Model DCVH680E electric dryer to clean the blower fan? My dryer shuts off during the drying cycle. I have cleaned the vent going to the outside. it even shuts off after removing the vein completely from the back.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Purchased in 2009

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That appears to be the next thing for me to do. if you have other recommendations that would be great

Does it require a cool down period before it will restart?

Ah, that is a motor issue. The thermal protector is opening. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

okay

You will need to disassemble the dryer and clean it all out. If the motor is not packed with lint, it will probably need to be replaced.
