This thermostat has a limit of 132 degrees Fahrenheit and a differential of 10 degrees. Meaning that with this thermostat, the heating element will cut out at 132 degrees and cycle back on once the internal temperature drops by 10 degrees.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
removed the two screws on the top at back of dryer then pryed up the front of the top, then removed the screws at the top of the front and pryed off the front of the dryer, the thermostat was at the bottom below the drum held on by two screws and had two wires on it. Fairly easy to replace but it did not solve my problem.

I decided to replace the cycling thermostat. I disconnected power, used the putty knife to push back spring type retainers underneath the top andlifted up the front edge of the top and pushed it upward to rest on the back hinges.Next, I unscrewed two sheetmetal screws on the edges of the front panel.Then I supported the front panel upward while releasing the push type spring clamps before pulling it forward off the drum. I was able to swingthe front panel open from the left side and gently open it while watching one wire that was connected to it from the right side.Then I was able to take the terminals off the thermostat noting which way they were connected.I unscrewed the two screws holding the thermostat to the fan housing and replaced it with a new one. I assembeled from the front panel bacwards. until the top was back down.Upon testing the unit I found out that the problem was not the cycling thermostat.I plan to investigate the timer circuit that the thermostat controls next.One can take out the thermostat and test it for cycling by removing it and checking terminals with ohmmeter x1 range and heating and cooling it with a hairdryer. Meter will read zero when thermostat is cold and closed. It will read infinityor high resistance when it is open and hot.
