I purchased the High Limit Kit. There was 3 pieces with the package. I only received the two smaller fuse. I changed one of the small fuse, the one for the electric dryer and the dryer works good as new. I used a 6mm socket (it worked, but didn't fit that good)and removed the larger fuse and then removed the other 6mm screw that holds the heating element. Removed the heating element then the bracket holding the small fuse, which just slide up and out. Unplugged wires and put new small fuse in and put everything back together. I called part select and told them the larger fuse was missing and they sent it. I will keep the large fuse for backup. I also saw a build up of lint on heating element on the inside of dryer. I just used vacuum to clean out.
