I'd need to see the schematic for this dryer to be sure, but if what you are talking about is a thermal FUSE, it's a safety device, and would be inline with the thermostat. Considering that you say it's close to the thermostat, if the fuse blew, the serviceman could have just removed the wire from between the thermostat and fuse (say thermostat out to fuse in) taken the wire that was on the other side of the fuse (fuse out) and put it on the thermostat out instead - completing the circuit, and removing the fuse from the circuit altogether. A quick fix, but not a safe one. The fuse should be replaced.

Check thermistor with ohm meter, make sure you unplug unit first, make sure wires are removed from thermistor or you will read ohms thru the wiring. If thermistor checks ok, the you have a relay board problem. replace power board.

not being sarcastic, but, your sure you have 240 volts present at the unit? then check door switch heat section control of switch may be bad

in this case we put the lower temp thermostat in the oven at 170 degrees till it was hot and measured with ohm meter and it was open. After it cooled down some it went back to being a short. Now with this part in the dryer and the new high temp thermostat
and it blew shortly after being turned on. A possiblity is that there is a short by passing the 150 degree thermostat and the element keeps being on and causes the 350 degree thermostate to blow.
