This thermostat controls the internal drying temperature.
Cycling themostats continually cycle the heating element off and on to maintain a constant inner temperature. This particular cycling thermostat has a limit of 140 degrees Fahrenheit and a differential of 10 degrees. Meaning that with this thermostat, the heating element will cut out at 140 degrees and cycle back on once the internal temperature drops by 10 degrees.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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
