Question about Dryers
Dryer runs for about 20 min and shuts down after a buzzing noise and what sounds like a solonoid clicking on and off. I replaced the blower wheel and cleaned the dryer and lint chute out. I think it is overheating. It will turn itself back on after about 5 mins or so but will only run for about 5mins and shut down again.

Now that there is a good one. Everything you are saying leads to a control board failure. Did you replace the board yourself, or have someone else do it? I have before gotten a new control board of the shelf, and it be as bad as the one I was replacing. Just a thought. Let me look around and see if I can find some other information, just really sounds like a bad part.

Your motor is very likely overheating and needs replacement. A simple test is the motor will be so hot you cannot even touch it. Hope this helps!

Sounds like a faulty operating thermostat. Only way is to test on a electric griddle that you can set the temperature to 150 deg and measure with a ohm meter.
