The jumper wire attacked to the heating coil housing keeps burning up. The dryer will still run but won't heat. I keeping replacing the wire and it will heat again, maybe for a couple of weeks and the wire will burn up again. What is causing this problem?

Ellen for Model Number DE712 (Maytag)

ANSWER Hello Ellen. This is caused by a bad vent, or a weak crimp connection on the wire terminal. Make sure the wire is crimped good, and the terminal is a high temperature terminal and the vent is clear. Hope this helps.
