Dryer Repair / Re: Thermal fuse reset
« Last post by tcarmen on January 24, 2021, 07:12:27 PM »
The plastic covered thermal fuses and the metal tubular thermal fuses that have one wire coming out of each end contain a small blob of metal that melts at the temperature stamped on the fuse. These are not resettable no matter what you do, since the actual metal has melted, leaving a gap.

The high limit thermostats contain a bimetal disc. but I've never tried a reset because I'm not sure if it would trip correctly a second time and I don't want to test my liability insurance. 8-) It's not meant to be reset, so I don't.

Your comments are appreciated about not modifying a design. Until I retired about 20 years ago I worked as a service rep  on off highway  trucks of at least 250 ton capacity for almost 40 years and learned a lot over the years. As a degreed mechanical and electrical engineer I know it is not always a good idea to modify things in the field but I did it occasionally to prevent an accident or a premature failure . I have seen some really poor designs in production and some really good ones also. Most manufacturers build items that they are told will sell and make a profit. Some times safety comes in second best until they are sued. I always look at the work I do as though I was going to use it myself and try to make sure it is safe in spite of poor decisions by other people.

After reading many of your posts Mr Thorning, you should not modify manufactures designs
You need to take a course in liability training Thats a good thing
I'm not saying you are dumb or stupid you sound very intelligent by suggesting some of the improvements to designs Ive read you posted
but you are foolish for modifying anything for anybody other than yourself
Parts should only be installed by part number for the model you are working on and NO modifications should Ever be performed
If you change a design You become the manufacture
Modify something and your insurance will not cover you
Just a thought, I had many many great years at Sears and hours and hours of fantastic training
Been doing this for 35+ years
Put a whirlpool branded range ignitor in a ge Better list the ge part number on your service order and charge for it HAHA
Good Luck I would hate to be chasing all the new stuff to many changes every year Back in the day a washer was the same for 25years

Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Stovetop burners are way too wide
« Last post by KMcK on January 23, 2021, 01:10:02 AM »
My new stove has very wide burners and the flames shoot out sideways so the flames pour up the sides of my pans, heat the handle and burn my hands.

And only the outside of the pan gets hot. Frying eggs, the ones on the outside are getting brown and the ones in the middle are still transparent.

Nearly all the stoves I see nowadays, even large expensive ones, are the same. I can't be the only one that has observed this.

I'd love to find an after-market burner replacement with jets that hit the center of a pan too. I'm tempted to get some metal stock and make new burner covers with holes that shoot flames upward or inward. Will it work?
