Thank you for your previous answer to my question"The thermal cutoff thermostat keeps blowing (the rear one of the two). On replacing the heat comes on for a few minutes and the thermostat goes again. I have even taken of the vent hose so there are nothing stopping the air flow. There is no fluff in the machine, what is causing this to happen." I have changed the cycling thermostat but the same happens, but takes a bit longer. I have done a continuity test across the heater and it seams not to be grounded and visual inspection of the coils shows that none are touching. What else can it be?

Stephen for Model Number 3rleq8003sw0

ANSWER Hello Stephen. If the cycling thermostat is new, it has to be a grounded heater. Otherwise, the heater would cycle on and off. In this case, it is not.
