1- cleared all the ducts. (They were clogged and this is what caused the fuse to open)
2- Replaced the fuse from the kit
3- The dryer stopped working again after 1/2 hour -the fuse blew-up again
4- Altough the stat (the other part included in the kit) checked OK with the multimeter, it was actually defective and did not regulate the temp.
5- changed both parts included in the kit, the dryer worked normally again.
