These are notorious for getting a lint ball in the filter housing, blowing the fuse and being dead in the water. OR they will take fifty forevers to dry the clothes if the blower wheel gets loose which is a very common problem. The fuse mounts on the side of the heating element on the rear bulkhead and is accessable by popping the top. The same screw that holds the heating element holds the clip that keeps the fuse to the side of the heating element . The fuse has 2 white wires going to it. The kit comes with 2 fuses. One is set for 250 and the other 300. Both have a colored dot on them and you use the onewhich is the same color as the original.

I love fan letters! LOL

See the Performa manual...it is identical in belt routing and maintenance.

You need the LA-1053 thermal kit, and the fuse with the yellow dot is for electric heat, the pink one for gas.

Let me see if I can splain it to you how I do it. My boss had a Crosley distributership. I was the tech so I have seen many of these boogers. I have an appliance lift so I raise it up to where I can sit comfortly in a chair or having it on the back of a pickup truck works well too. Trying to do it laying the floor would be quite imposible. Sitting on a chair I reach around the blower with my left hand and and under the drum with my right hand. Making sure the belt is under the motor pulley I raise up the idler and loop the belt over the top of the idler wheel so that when I let is go it tensions the belt all nice like. You cannot see what you are doing. Its a touchy feely type of thing. If you have big old fat arms like I do then it is kinda tight. Takes a bit of practice but it is easy once you get the hang of it.Once the belt is on I give the drum a slow turn making sure the belt is not twisted.

When you get really good, you can reach in there and do it with one hand.


Technique:

Loop the belt around the motor pulley, then pull the idler up and loop that too.
