Supco Dryer Thermal Fuse and High-Limit Thermostat Kit
Equivalent to Whirlpool OEM 279816

This kit includes :

  • 1 high-limit safety thermostat at 250°F
  • 1 thermal fuse at 309°F


The thermal cut-off (fuse) is meant to trip at a higher temperature than that of a high limit thermostat

This is a one-time use fuse, so when it does trip, you must replace it

The hi-limit thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating

Once the dryer temperature reaches a certain point, this piece will shut down power to the heating element

This genuine OEM kit also includes flat heaters with jumper wires

Make sure to disconnect the power source to the dryer before beginning this repair

The Therm-O-Disc® SET Series of 3/4″ (19mm) bimetal disc temperature controls offers proven reliability in a versatile, cost-effective design

Can handle loads up to 25 amps at 240VAC
