Well obviously it's either 1. Drawing too much current or 2. It's got a short inside.
How much current is your dryer rated to pull? Since you said your dryer "blows fuses", I'm assuming you must have an older home with a fuse box instead of circuit breakers? (unless they put fuses inside of dryers) How many amps are your fuses?
Yeah figured that. The 115v is for the control circuit and the 230v is for the dryer elements. Need the power or current number. It's called out in Watts or Amps.
A lot of times they will tell you in the owners manual what the minimum size wire or the minimum circuit to run to the dryer.
The dryer is new. We had an old dryer did the same thing. yes it started it all of a sudden. The old dryer quit heating ,we thought it was the dryer. Guess should have checked the fuses before buying a new one.
Looks like John's got ya' covered (sorry to but in John)
what type of fuses?
Sometimes the fuse holders are the cause for fuses to blow especially on old cartridge type fuses when they get old and don't hold the fuses tight enough.
Do the blown fuses look like they have been hot?
