« on: December 02, 2013, 03:53:04 PM »
Replaced cycling thermostat, and dryness control board, cleaned sensor bars to death, still not working on auto dry, but works on Timed mode. Thanks. GE Dryer Model  PRSR495EH3WW.

One of your heaters is blown open, just check.

I will tear it apart next chance it is free. I see a pretty good glow in there, but I will check em anyway. Odd looking heaters, not the coils spring type. How many are in there? I am guessing two? Thanks.

There are always two, very common for one to blow and the timer motor will not get power thru the power resistor.

I understand my unit does not have the power resistor, and it is all done through the dryness board. I am anxious to check out the heater elements now though go400. Thank you very much for your reply.

Sometimes they use a 3 terminal cycling thermostat to do it.

Ya, even the parts place had an issue with the model #, but he ended up finding it. You are absolutely right though, I searched high and low on the net without one hit. I will try to upload several photos, so you can see the beast I have...Cheers!

Yeah none of my parts places does not have that model # Even G.E web site does not have it.I bet he had to call G.E to get the part #though.Made in Canada was probability the reason for no look up.

Sometimes they use a 3 terminal cycling thermostat to do it.

My cycling thermostat has 4 terminals on it, it actuates at 135 degrees. I has the bias heater in it, they both (old and new one I got) make noise when shaken, so I have two good ones now likely, haha. Thanks. I tested them in the frying pan.
