Dryer Blowing Thermal Fuse

I worked on a dryer today in Boise.  The dryer had a bad thermal fuse and the heat that was generated from the heater element was not being circulated in the drum and ducting sufficiently enough to prevent the dryer from overheating.  Here was the culprit.  This lint buildup in the ducting was restricting the air flow about 70 percent -enough to cause overheating. 
Dryers should be cleaned out periodically.  If this is not practical then a good indication of a problem is when you clothes are taking a longer time to dry.  For an example, if you have to cycle your clothes twice to get things dry- have a professional look at your system.  We can be reached at 208-863-3702.

Dryer Safety Hazard

The pictures that I'm showing here is of a used dryer that was sold locally here in Boise.  The company that sold the dryer had removed all of the safety thermostat wiring to prevent the thermostats from "blowing" due to an overheat condition and thus avert a irate call back to the shop for them to "fix the dryer you sold us.

Folks, these safety thermostats are there for a reason and they are VERY important.  If your house vent is restricted it will cause the dryer to overheat.  These thermostats are meant to blow and thus prevent a overheat condition and avert a potential fire.  They will also prevent a over-current condition which is shown in one of the photos.  When wires burn like this the electricity should be shut down by the very components that this company had bypassed. 

This Boise company has been warned to quit what they are doing.  I have seen at least five of these dryers and I inform my customers that the dryer is junk and I will not take the responsibility of fixing a unsafe dryer.  We do not want to have a house burn down and have anything be attributed to our company, Western Appliance.  Please be aware folks!

Refrigerator Safety Thermostat

This little booger is called a bi-metal or thermostat.  It consists of two different metals fused together with different expansion characteristics when cold.  This causes the metal to bend to create a switch contact.
These are installed on most refrigerator evaporators to make sure the refrigerator does not overheat during the defrost cycle.  
As with most is very important.  Our Boise appliance repair customers need to feel safe if a malfunction in their refrigerator, washer, dryer, stove, should occur.
