The delicate temperture is too hot. The dryer works fine on the perm press setting but temperture does not reduced when dryer is set on delicate. Thanks, Dy

B. Dy for Model Number SGDS800JQ2

ANSWER B.Dy , First thing to do is check your exhaust vent system, a restricted vent could create your issue. On your style dryer there are 4(four) temperature settings, No heat lo heat/delicate cycles off at 130 dgrsF. Medium heat cycles off at 140 dgrsF. and High heat setting which cycles to 150 dgrsF. There is a 10% varience in the temperature built into the thermostat. If you have a cook or candy thermometer you can verify the exhaust temperature by holding the thermometer buld in the exhaust air flow and check the temperature, after the burner has cycled off and on 3 or 4 times. Check that temperature with the drum empty, and make sure the lint filter is clean and the exhaust is disonnected. Good Luck.
