For Whirlpool Dryer Thermostat Kit (Part Number: AP4242472)

The thermal fuse has blown twice on me now. Do you know what temp this fuse blows at? I'm trying to understand if the fuse is very conservatively rated because it does not blow until after the third load of clothes in a row is run, and it is very hot where the dryer is located (a garage, and this is in Florida).

ANSWER Hello Steve. According to the manufacture, the thermal fuse in the kit LA-1053 should open at 300° F. It sounds like you may have a clogged or kinked vent on the unit.
