Could Have Been a Poor Connection....

In reply to dryer circuit wire in power box seems melted by BP Smith on February 21st, 2002 11:01 AM [Go to top of thread]

That has since been tightened. Check that the connection is tight by first pulling the fuse/shuting off the breaker, and tightning the connection. Is the wire of the correct size? A typical 30 amp dryer circuit should have #10 copper wire.
Try running the dryer again and CAREFULLY check the wire to see if it is getting hot.
Good Luck,
