First, I'd check to see if the vent is clogged. The dryer has a safety feature built in so that if heat builds up too high, the unit shuts down (to prevent fire). IF it is not the vent, then it is probably a faultly thermistor - this is the switch that reads the temp. These frequently go bad and are pretty easy to fix. Check out one of the appliance repair web sites for parts and repair video.
Hello allisonarena - Try
reprogramming the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household
circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit.
If issue persists, then the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious
issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or
defective door switch. I would recommend
connecting with an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further and to
reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.
If you bypass the hi limit thermostat you will blow your thermal fuse within minutes. The hi limit thermostat is a bi-metal thermostat which warps when heated to kill power to the element. If its bypassed then the element will not turn off.....which will in turn blow your thermal fuse which is rated at a higher temp than the hi limit. So unfortunately it will not work.
This sounds like a problem with the fuser or possibly the fuser lamp. You can try turning the printer off for about ten minutes to cool the machine off and then turn back on. If that doesn't work you would need a new fuser unit. The fuser is located behind the door on right side of the machine. There are four screws used to hold the fuser in place. Good Luck, I hope this helps.
