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
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
