ERP Replacement for Dryer Fuse & Thermostat Kit - 279769


ERP Replacement for Dryer Fuse & Thermostat Kit - 279769

Replacement Fuse & Thermostat Kit used on many Whirlpool, Roper, Estate, KitchenAid, Maytag, Sears Kenmore brands electric dryers from 1985 to 1995.

The thermal fuse shuts down the dryer when it starts to overheat. The next time you try to start the dryer, the motor won't run even though the dryer has power. The fuse is designed to prevent a fire by cutting the power to the heating element if it detects too high a temperature. The thermal fuse is not resettable, and the heating element will not function until you install a new thermal fuse. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

If the limit switch has blown, it might appear black or gray upon inspection. Also, your appliance likely has lost some of its capabilities. Even if you restore power to the appliance by resetting its main circuit breakers, tripped by the limit switch, the appliance might not heat properly. Only after you replace the switch will all of the appliance's typical competences return. Don't replace the switch until you identify the reason your appliance overheated and caused the switch to trigger; otherwise the issue might happen again.

The thermal fuse is set at 352 degrees F, and the thermostat at 250 degrees F. These two are very important to your dryer's operation because they keep it from getting too hot.
