IA84600 Inglis dryer doesn't heat

(1/2) > >>

RickT:
I have a 13 year old Inglis clothes dryer model IA84600 and it will not heat at all. Would this be a thermostat or heating unit? are there instructions available to replace these?

rickgburton:
Thats a brand I haven't heard of before. Can you tell me where it was made? Where was it purchased? I'll see what I can find.

That's a Canadian Whirlpool brand.

Is the lint filter on top or in the door? Probably a thermal fuse open due to a clogged exhaust.

RickT:
I do keep the exhaust clean.  How do i go about finding and testing the thermal fuse?  The lint filter is up top. 

thanks!

accapp:
Unplug it or kill the electric power to the unit and remove the rear panel. The thermal fuse is about 1-1/2" long by 7/16" wide, mostly white and has two 3/16" terminals coming off it. It should have around 0 ohms when tested for continuity. Does the heat come from electric or gas?
