First i remove the back protective panel, and proceeded to the Elemet housing and removed it from its location for ease of repairs, the actual parts were replaced in less than 5 minutes but while i was this far into the appliance i thought it best to also clean out the blower housing, and that is where i found the biggest part of the problem , which by the way is where the exhaust to the dryer is located and there is where i found at least 4 years of lint build up, so after a thorough cleaning i reassembled the dryer and re installed and checked for proper operation and now all is well, and PS if you can tell by this repair story the problem wasn't the Thermal Cut off relay; no it was a completely restricted blower exhaust.Which by the way is an Extreme Fire Hazard
