This part is a one-time use thermal fuse which attaches to the blower wheel housing of your clothes dryer. It cannot be re-set and must be replaced when continuity between the pins...
This element is strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to dry the clothes in your dryer.
This dryer drum belt has four ridges, three grooves and is 1/4" wide.
Cycling thermostats continually cycle the heating element off and on to maintain a constant inner temperature. This particular cycling thermostat has a limit of 155 degrees Fahrenheit and a differential of 25 degrees. Meaning that with this thermostat, the heating element will cut out at 155 degrees and cycle back on once the internal temperature drops by 25 degrees.
This clothes dryer thermal cut-off kit includes one high limit thermostat with a limit of 250 degrees Fahrenheit, and one thermal cut-off fuse (309 degrees). This kit also includes...
A door switch is a simple on/off mechanism that prohibits the dryer from operating when the door is open.
This kit comes with one multi-rib belt, two drum support rollers, one idler pulley, four tri-rings, and one clip. This part can be used with both gas and electric dryers.
This hi-limit thermostat with Terminal Extension Arm acts as as safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches 221 degrees Farenheit, this piece will shut down power to the heating element until it drops by 80 degrees Farenheit.
These two drum support rollers are no longer available for individual sale. Available in a package of two and it is recommended that you replace both rollers at once. These two rol...

So then checked the thermal fuse for continuity I removed the two wires from it with a small pair of needle nose pliers, ...

Ascertaining the problem was the most time consuming part.
The actual repair was quite simple and didn't take but 15-20 m...
