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.

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.

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.

The thermal cut off fuse will disrupt the power flow to the drive motor when the dryer gets too hot. If your dryer will not heat properly, or will not heat at all the issue could be with a faulty or damaged thermal cut off fuse. Before you replace the faulty cut off fuse, make sure you disconnect the power from your dryer.
