First, is this the right thermal switch for this model? The original switch number is 16 3700920. Second, what do I check to determine what caused the switch to blow? There are actually two thermal switches on this dryer. one is mounted outside the heat tube. This one is mounted in the duct from the motor fan to the rear of the dryer.
