HI, Thanks for your help in advance. My Kenmore Gas Dryer (11092822101) High-Limit Thermostat (Part # 3403140) keeps tripping after the burner on for a minute or so then it will reset itself after it cool down. I know it is doing its job by checking the temperature rear around the HI -Limit Thermostat. Could you please tell me what is the cause for the high temperature which rear around the burner? The exhaust duct and everything else is clean and I even remove the duct work from the dryer and it still trip the high limit by high temperature. Perhaps the problem is the gas valve?
Based on the information, check just to make sure that there is no lint clogged in the blower wheel but it sounds like you have a weak high limit thermostat.
