Where is fuse in Frigidaire Dryer?
« on: December 08, 2008, 01:42:22 PM »
The motor works and turns the drum but I have no heat in my dryer.  From what I read I need to replace one of two fuses.  Where are the fuses?

Model GLER642AS3

If the fuse was blown the dryer woud not run.
You probably have a bad heater element, part # 131553900

Your fuse is called a thermal limit. It is part # 134120900
It is located on the upper right hand corner of the rear bulkhead. NOTE: if it is blown the dryer will NOT run.

This is what it says in my owners manual:

Dryer runs, won't heat?

There are 2 house fuses in the dryer circuit. If
1 of the 2 fuses is blown, the drum may turn
but the heater will not operate.

It has a high limit mounted on the heater housing and if that blows then you won't have any heat. Most of the time that one never is a problem.
I have never sold one or had to replace one. So your 2 safetys are the small one mounted on the rear bulkhead upper right hand corner and the heater housing itself. To access the limits you must pop the top

Next remove the screws which hold the front on. And then lift the front out of your way.
Open the rear hatch and release the idler and then lift out the drum using the belt as a handle.
Then you will be able to check the heater the and limits easily.
By the way you can get a restring kit part # 5300622032
