My dryer is running to hot, it blew the thermal fuse, I changed it and clean all the ducts,and all vents, tested the dryer cycle thermostat, 2 out side wires are not open and the violet wires have low resistance. What do you think is my problem?

Bob for Model Number 110-68622700

ANSWER Hello Bob. It may have just been the venting on the unit. Test the temperature coming out of the unit and see if it cycles. If so, the unit should be fine. If not, replace the cycling thermostat. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
