Well then we will just have to yank out our trusty manual and take a look see
THIN TWIN
When we look at page 107 we see that yes indeed the thermal limit is wired in the motor circuit and will kill the dang motor if it is open. If you go by the schematic on the thin twin manual then it appears the limit has nothing to do with motor operation. I still think this number 50 is the key.

If we look at page 1, we see that's not the THIN TWIN manual.

Reg is right, their ain't no fuse on this one that would kill the motor they only serve to kill the heating element. The door switch or a broken belt switch could kill the motor.
