Can I bypass a thermal fuse?
Also asked, can you reset a thermal fuse?
You can't reset the thermal fuse; if it's blown, replace it with the manufacturer-approved replacement part.
Beside above, how do I know if my thermal fuse is blown? Touch the left multimeter lead to the left side of the thermal fuse; touch the right multimeter lead to the right side of the fuse. Keep an eye on the multimeter needle; a needle that fails to move indicates a blown thermal fuse. If this is the case, don't fret: thermal fuse replacement is a simple task.
In this way, can you bypass a thermal fuse on a dishwasher?
Remember to turn the power to the dishwasher off first. The fuse can be checked for continuity if a meter is available. There is a way to bypass the fuse if a meter is not avialble. To bypass the thermal fuse remove both wires and join them together.
Can you bypass a high limit thermostat?
The idea would be to bypass the thermostat, hi-limit or thermal cutoff one at a time and see if the dryer will heat. Then carefully plug the dryer in and run it to see if it will heat. If it heats the thermostat is the problem. If it doesn't heat then the thermal cut-off and hi-limit can be checked the same way.
