WHEN I DIRECT THE DRYER EXHAUST INTO THE ROOM DURING THE WINTER THERE IS AN EXTERNAL LINT FILTER IN THE DUCTING.fOR SOME REASON,ENOUGH LINT GOT BY THE DRYERS FILTER AND OVER A FEW CYCLES CLOGGED THE EXHAUST. I CORRECTLY ASSUMED THAT THE DRYER OVERHEATED AND SOME THERMAL LIMITER HAD OPENED UP. THE MANUAL HAD EXPLODED VIEWS AND I LOCATED THE LIMITER. GETTING TO IT WAS ANOTHER ISSUE. THE MANUAL GAVE NBO INSTRUCTIONS ON GETTING TO THE LIMITER, BUT I HAD INSTALLED A PROPANE CONVERSION KIT WHEN I FIRST GOT THE DRYER. iT WAS NECESSARY TO REMOVE THE TOP, CONTROL PANEL, AND FRONT PANEL/DOOR ASSEMBLY. DISCONNECTING THE GAS LINE,SOME CABLE CONNECTORS, AND A FEW SCREWS ALLOWED THE REMOVALE OF THE BURNER ASSEMBLY, THEN REMOVAL OF THE METAL TUBE THAT SURROUNDED THE BURNER ASSEMBLY AND HELD A NUMBER OF SENSORS, INCLUDING THE THERMAL LIMIT, WHICH, AS EXPECTED, SHOWED AN OPEN CIRCUIT. THE REPLACEMENT PART WAS ORDERED AND CHECKED OUT AS A CLOSED CIRCUIT, WHICH IT SHOULD. REASSEMBLY WAS THE REVERSE. A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO WORK IN THE CRAMPED LOWER CORNER OF THE DRYER. I'M 82 YEARS OLD NOW BUT MACHINES CANNOT BEAT ME!!
