Hi. The heating element quit working on this unit. A local appliance man sold me new thermal cutoff kit for 279816. It worked a few weeks and went bad again! I typed in my model number and it said this part is not compatible. Could this be the reason for early failure? Vent is clean and free flowing! Thanks Art.

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?
