Sears Kenmore Dryer runs but wouldn't heat
Asked Sep 8, 2008, 06:48 PM
I have a Sears Kenmore Dryer Model #970-C85192-00 (electric) which I bought in Dec 2006. The drum runs but would not heat. I looked in the Sears Manual (Use and Care Guide) and the Avoid Service Checklist details the following possible cause - "There are 2 house fuses in the dryer circuit. If 1 of the 2 fuses is blown , the drum may turn but the heater would not operate" with a solution "Replace fuse"
1. Where is the house fuse in the dryer?
2. Having read the previous posts I don't feel that the manual refers to my house fuses however as a matter of caution I did reset my house fuses (in the breaker box) but no luck. The Sears manual is not specific in their reference to house fuses in the dryer circuit. Are they the screw type ones on the dryer? If so where are the physically located?
3. The wiring diagram for the dryer does not show a fuse. I tested the outlet, and I am getting 220V. So what's the solution?
