Dryer would not turn on

Troubleshooting was the hardest thing to do in this repair. the first thing I found wrong was the thermal overload was bad. That was easy to replace since that is on top of the housing for the heating coils and easy to reach. Only 2 screws hold it in place. Once I replaced that the dryer would start but, the temperature was off the chart. Now I know why that part broke. The control Thermostat was a little harder. That is held in by 2 screws but it is in an awkward place. I replace the 2 slotted screws with nut driver type screw which made it easier to place the screws in such a small area. Once the control thermostat was replaced the dryer worked great
