Can I use a high level thermostat instead of a cycling thermostat?
Answer Ron, you would not want to use a high limit in place of a cycling thermostat. That would create a real safety issue with your dryer getting too hot. The correct thermostat needs to be ordered and used according to what model # you have. Thanks.

Please provide detailed installation information. The original part has three prongs, and this part only has two. I'm not sure which wires connect to which prong.
Based on the information it appears that you got the adjustable cycle thermostat instead of the high limit cycle thermostat that would have 3 prongs on it. The part number would be 33303391.
Hello, my moms dryer is getting very hot and cannot touch the door inside and inside the drum can this be a vent problem or the cycling thermostat?
This sounds like it may be a venting issue, especially if it is taking longer for the clothes to dry. You will want to check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the home for restrictions.
