My dryer was running and heating fine. Then the next time I put in a load it would not heat. I ran a continuity check on the thermal cut off and it is open. Does that mean I need a new one. And can I run continuity checks on the thermostats and heating element?

my dryer runs but the flame only ignites for about 15 seconds. once temp cools off for a few minutes the flame re lites. There was a substantial block in the vent. I've replaced the coils tore apart the machine and cleaned all lint from the lint duct, blower and vent duct. no kinks in the vent duct. the thermal fuse is blown so I bypassed it temporarily to see if it helped. no luck. I assume the thermal fuse blew do to a blocked duct previously. Should I replace the hi limit switch, cycling switch or maybe both?

My dryer turns on but when I push to start it does not start. I replaced the Thermostat & thermal fuse and it worked for one load and stopped again. I then replaced the door switch but it did not start up again.
