Took apart dryer and replaced limiter located on back, reassembled dryer and tested wiithout connecting to vent. Dryer working fine without vent connection. However as always something simple turns to disaster when children help. While cleaning out lint from dryer vent which I will say was the original problem causing the limiter to trip, youngest son wanted to help. Son did not know that to walk in an attic you must step on joists not drywall. No one was hurt just banged up falling into the garage. Extended repair to ceiling added dificulty factor of 2 days and a bit of insulation clean up. Good news is the dryer works fine and the vent is no longer clogged up with lint. Watch your help it always adds to the repair.
