Where To Buy Thermal Fuse For Samsung Dryer

One of the most common issues reported with Samsung dryers is that the dryer is not heating. This issue with Samsung dryers is usually caused by a burnt-out heating element. However, it may also be caused by a blown thermal fuse, a defective thermistor, or a ventilation blockage.

Another common issue with Samsung dryers is that the dryer is not heating due to a blown thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a safety device designed to prevent your dryer from catching fire. With newer models, if the dryer temperature exceeds a certain level, the thermal fuse is blown, and the dryer stops working. With older models, the dryer may continue to work but without producing heat.

The external vent that takes air from the dryer and deposits it outside the hose should be cleaned at least once per year. To check that the external ventilation is working, check for a warm, consistent airflow where the ventilation exits the house. A ventilation cleaning kit or a vacuum attachment can be used to clean the ventilation.

Temporarily tape the two wires that go to the thermal fuse together to essentially "bypass" or "jump" the thermal fuse. Use electrical tape to properly insulate the connection and avoid contact of bare wire contacts with the dryer cabinet. NOTE: Do not leave the thermal fuse bypassed following this temporary diagnostic test. The thermal fuse is an essential safety component that must normally be in place to safely run the dryer.

If the dryer heats up way past 150 degrees, then you will likely need to replace the operating thermostat that is right beside the thermal fuse. You could also have a heating element that is shorted to the cabinet and heating constantly.

The thermal fuse is a safety backup which is designed to prevent a fire from occurring by disconnecting the power, if the thermostats fail. There usually are other temperature sensors as well to detect lower temperatures for different cycle options, delicates etc but there should also be a high limit one.

A thermal fuse is a small device - just an inch or two long - that plays a critical role in preventing fires. Federal law mandates the inclusion of a thermal fuse on all dryers manufactured since the 1980s. A thermal fuse operates if dryer exhaust temperatures climb too high. The fuse shuts off the dryer or its components if this happens. A thermal fuse only works one time. If it triggers during a high-exhaust temperature event, the fuse must be replaced.

Many dryers simply will not run once a thermal fuse triggers. On other models, the drum continues to turn and the dryer operates, but the heating element does not. Clothes come out of the dryer wet once the appliance completes its drying cycle. Manufacturers are not consistent from model to model, even within the same brand.

A reliable method for testing whether a thermal fuse has burned out is to temporarily bypass the device. However, it is tempting to operate the dryer this way, or forget to replace the fuse once the dryer is running. Bypassing the fuse is only a quick means of detecting whether the fuse is bad. It is not a permanent fix. Disconnect the two wires from the fuse and tie them together with a jumper wire, then turn on the dryer. If it runs and heats, the thermal fuse burned out and must be replaced.

A better, faster means of testing requires an electrical multitester set at its lowest RX setting. Remove the two wire leads from the thermal fuse and touch a multitester probe to each wire terminal on the fuse. If you get a reading of infinity, the fuse is fine. Any reading less than infinity indicates a triggered thermal fuse you will need to replace.

If your dryer will run but does not produce any heat, there is likely a problem with the dryer's heating element or thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a safety feature against overheating, and will often blow if lint buildup in the trap or the dryer hose prevents proper air flow. Checking the fuse is easy if you ow
