The heating element snapped in two. I replaced it and within a week, the new one broke in at least 3 places and the end piece got so hot, it sodered to the metal tube.
Am I buying a new dryer? It's 21 years old.
ANSWER Hello TB. You will need to test the thermostat and cycling thermostat to see why the unit is heating all the time and not cycling. Mkae sure the vent is clear and not kinked first. If the vent is good, test the cycling thermostat 307249 and the hi limit 303396. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
