The dryer thermal fuse, also sometimes referred to as the thermal cut off or temperature fuse, is a 2 by 1/2-inch, white, plastic safety mechanism that halts the flow of electricity to the motor circuit when a dryer overheats. If the fuse is missing or broken, your dryer will not start. A thermal fuse fails when the exhaust temperature exceeds the fuse rating, that is when the temperature rises above the temperature that the fuse is intended to manage. This can be caused by the heating element shorting, a regulating thermostat or thermistor failure, or with a partially restricted exhaust vent. The fuse attaches to the blower wheel housing. It must be replaced when there is no longer continuity between the terminals. This is a one-time fuse, meaning it cannot be re-set. The replacement part features two 3/16-inch terminals. While performing this repair, we recommend checking to make sure all vents are cleared and vacuumed. This OEM part is sold individually.

This thermal cut-off kit is for a dryer and is sourced directly from the manufacturer. The thermal cut-off is a safety mechanism that is designed to trip if your dryer is at risk of overheating, to prevent further damage. It may need to be replaced if your washer is no longer heating properly. This is a one-time fuse, meaning if it trips, it needs to be replaced immediately. A common reason for this part to fail is if the heater housing is not receiving proper airflow, normally caused by an obstruction in the exhaust vent, a clogged lint screen, or a broken blower wheel. This kit includes 1 high-limit thermostat with a limit of 250 degrees Fahrenheit, 1 thermal cut-off fuse with a limit of 309 degrees Fahrenheit, jumper wires and new female spade terminals. These components are attached to the heater housing.

If your dryer is not turning on, or not heating up, there could be an issue with your thermal fuse. This OEM fuse is designed to act as a high-limit thermostat, and will turn off the heating element in your dryer if the appliance overheats. It does this by cutting off power to the dryer. If the fuse has blown, it will need to be replaced as they cannot be reset. You can test the fuse with a multimeter, and should receive a reading of 0 ohms of resistance if the fuse is still good. A common reason for a dryer to overheat is if the air vents are blocked, as the hot air is contained in the dryer causing the fuse to blow. Be sure to keep your dryer filter and vents clean of lint and other debris to prevent this from happening.

This thermal cut-off kit includes a genuine OEM replacement high limit thermostat and a fuse. The thermostat is a safety device used to prevent the dryer from overheating, and the fuse serves as a backup. If the temperature in your dryer gets above the thermostat, the fuse will blow. Once the fuse has tripped, it will need to be replaced. If your dryer will not start, gets too hot, shuts off too soon, or there is no heat, you may need to replace these components. Please be sure to disconnect the power supply to your dryer before beginning this repair, as you will be working with electrical components.

This genuine OEM kit includes a high limit thermostat and a thermal cut-off fuse for your dryer. The thermostat has a limit of 250 degrees Fahrenheit, and the fuse has a limit of 360 degrees Fahrenheit. The purpose of these parts is to prevent your dryer from overheating. If your clothes are coming out of the dryer too hot, or there is no heat at all, it is likely that these parts will need to be replaced. To complete this repair, you will need a putty knife, quarter-inch nut driver, and a pair of pliers. Please be sure to disconnect the power supply to your dryer before beginning this repair. The thermostats are located on the element housing, and we find it easiest to remove the entire heating assembly from the dryer in order to replace these parts. Take note when removing the old thermostats, if there is any discoloration on the terminals then the wire ends may also need to be replaced.

The thermal cut-off (fuse) is meant to trip at a higher temperature than that of a high limit thermostat. This is a one time use fuse, so when it does trip, you must replace it. The hi-limit thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches a certain point, this piece will shut down power to the heating element.
