Help I tested all fuses and switches for continuity, and all passed then I found an open on the timer and replaced it. I ran dryer the heating element came on and seemed to work. Then we started to dry clothes, it ran 20min. then shut down! Unable to restart, and the top seemed to get much hotter than in the past.

ANSWER Hello Jeff. Test the fuse and make sure vent is clear and not clogged. Also, may need to replace the cycling thermostat in the unit as well. 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
