279816 Dryer Thermal Kit

(Click to order one at wholesale pricing)

(309F Fuse, 250F Limit Thermostat)

WARNING: Disconnect all power before servicing. Replace all panels before operating. Failure to do so can result in electrical shock or death. Please see my disclaimer before you start!

NOTE: This kit is found most commonly on those dryers using the 'short' element, #279838

1.  Replace the thermal fuse, located higher on the side of the element 'can', by removing its two wires and screw(s)

2.  Remove the safety thermostat (lower device, near the element terminals).

3.  After bending the tab that holds the original safety thermostat out of the way, use two screws to install the new thermostat, 3390291.

4.  Attach one end of the jumper wire to thermostat and the other end to the element.

If the terminal connects to the thermostat by a 3/16 terminal, then one end of the jumper wire must be cut off. Crimp onto the jumper wire the male/female combination terminal. Attach this male female combination terminal to the thermostat. Remove the 3/16 terminal from the wire harness, and crimp the supplied 1/4 female terminal onto the wire. Attach that wire to the male/female combination terminal.
