    What is a thermal limiter.
    For model number GLER331AS1
    Hi Phyllis, Thank you for the question.The thermal limiter, also known as a thermal fuse, blows to cut off power to the dryer when the dryer begins to overheat. Once the dryer reached 220 degrees Fahrenheit, the heat cuts out. If the thermal fuse is defective, damaged, or blown. Hope this helps!

    The switch you push to start the dryer won't works. I can select the cycle i want.
    Hi Mary, thank you for your question. Looking at your model information there are a few parts that you should take out and test to see which one is giving you the issue. The first parts to check in this case would be all of your thermostats and thermal fuses. You can test those parts with a multi meter and they should be reading 0 ohms to be working correctly. You may also want to check your start switch itself. If those parts are fine, you should then go on to testing your heating element as well. You can also test that with a multi meter and it should be reading between 0 - 50 ohms. Something else you should also check would be your filter and ducts. Make sure there is absolutely no blockage that would restrict air flow in your appliance. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    Our dryer overheated and shut off. Cooled down, and it starts to run when you turn the start switch but stops when you release the switch. Is this likely a bad start switch or something else?
    For model number GLER331AS2
    Hi Steve, Thank you for the question. if the appliance over heated the start switch is not the issue. I suggest cleaning out the vents and the vent tubes. Make sure they are sitting flat with no dips or bends. If the air flow is blocked it will cause the appliance to over heat. it is also a good idea to remove the front panel and clean any lint build up from the duct and inside the cabinet. Once everything is cleaned out and if you have the same issues, you will need to test the thermostats and the thermal limiter on the element housing and the blower housing to see if they are defective or where tripped when they over heated. Hope this helps!

      dryer start switch shaft was broken by using pliers after knob was lost
      I first disconnected the power by unplugging power cord.

      I then removed back cover from control panel using philips screwdriver.

      I removed the start switch by twisting it counter clockwise.

      I removed the two push on connectors from the start switch.

      I installed the two connectors on the new switch.

      I twisted the new switch into place, and installed the new knob.

      I reinstalled the back cover plate.

      I inserted the power cord back into the receptacle.

      I twisted the start knob clockwise.

      VOILA!!!!!

      Fixed broken knobs and switch
      First, I unplugged the dryer. Then, I removed the back panel from the controls section (6 screws), disconnected the old switch and reconnected the new switch. Positioning the switch in the control panel took some figuring out, but once I realized that the switch slots into place, and then gets locked in by turning 1/8 of a turn, it worked fine.

      Replacing the knobs was a cinch, just popped them in place. Now the controls are like new again.

      Frigidaire controls are really junk, though. I won't be surprised if I have to do this repair again in two years.

      Knob fell off - start switch shaft broken from pliers
      Unplug the dryer!! I warned my partner of this at first, but she didn't listen.... got quite a little shock from the wires. Removed the back panel with a phillips head screwdriver, removed the connecting wires from the starter box. One was a bit snug, so I loosened it with some flat-nosed pliers. Twisted the unit and it popped right out! Once the part came in I popped it back in, twisted it until it locked into place, put the connecting wires on and replaced the panel. The knob snapped on easily and it all took about 10 minutes total to do! I'm not much of a repairman or electrician and this was SUPER easy!

      Broken start switch and knob
      First I removed the existing knobs and then the screws holding the top panel. I then removed the broken switch and replaced it with the new one, replaced the panel and knobs. The process took me approx. 45 minutes. PartsSelect.com saved me the cost of hiring a handyman.

      Start Switch stopped working
      First I unplugged the dryer. I removed the 3 knobs on the front control panel as well as the 6 screws on the back. The start switch easily removes by turning it 45 degrees and pulls out. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to pull the two connectors loose from the old switch. (They are color coded wires, 1 brown and 1 gray. The switch is marked with the numbers 1 and 2 on the connectors so remember which one goes where) Then i hooked up the new switch in reverse order and was back in business in about 5 minutes.

      I broke the turn start switch and had to replace it
      This was a Sears Dryer, also know as Kenmore, This dryer can be stacked or side by side. In this case it was stacked. There are no directions on how to replace this part. For this model made in 2005 the lid of the dryer is held in front by two clips. You open the lid simply by prying the two front corners up with a flat head screw driver. The front of the top lid pops right up. You may have to remove the mounts in back if you cant lift the dryer lid enough to be able to get your hands in. UNPLUG THE DRYER I got a nasty shock. There are two wires on the switch, remember how they go and where they are, that's important. Turn the switch (from the front or back) so that it pops out. Remove and replace the wires put it back in (from behind/top) and twist a 1/4 turn into place. Plug, test and simply push the cover back down onto the clips. Done.

      The Start Button broke in the unit
      I unplugged the dryer from the wall and removed the back panel to replace the switch. It only had two wires on the switch I pulled then off and placed them on the new switch and put the unit back together and replaced all the knobs with new ones and it looks new again. Thanks to Parts Select.
