As a service tech and I came to your home for repair first question I would ask is what parameter are you using to determine it is too hot not trying to be rude not a normal complaint dryers heat to 150-170F based on model before cycling thermostat opens if a dryer overheats it will normally open the hi limit stopping the heat cycle in some cases depending where the most concentration of heat is it will open the thermal fuse depending on how it is wired it will either not run or run but not heat dont know what type of exhaust tubing you have on unit if you have the flexible type then you can use a cheap pocket thermometer to push into it to read the highest temp then cover the small hole with silver tape if not possible then remove exhaust hose and tape the thermometer to exhaust with same silver tape heat tape used in HVAC cheap if you read over 180F investigate the cycling thermistor

Hot water not running to machine just the cold water

Try switching the hot and cold hoses. See if the hot water works. Sometimes the gate gets frozen, other times the hot is so slow it seems to not be working, similar to when it takes a long time to get hot water in the sink.

Does the main relay being bad make your car not start sometimes

Relays rarely go bad. If you have on that gets really hot. It could be the relay or the wiring. And yes, main relays and even secondary relays can keep an engine from starting/running. First check which relay is getting hot. The swap it with another relay in the panel. If it still gets hot. you will have to start checking the wires to it. If the relay you swapped to other spot gets hot, replace the relay.

Have 2155 cub cadet when it gets hot spudders then dies wouldn't start until cools acts like it not getting gas what could be the problemn?

To be quite honest it sounds more like a fire issue than fuel. More times than not when a coil starts going bad the hotter it gets the weaker it gets and sometimes stops firing at all until cooling down, occasionally a plug will do this aswell, but I think your coil is going out.

You need to first load test the battery then do a voltage drop test on the battery cables. If you have never done a voltage drop test just google the procedure

Oven gets to hot and then it trips out. how many solid state relays do I need to replace?

Usually they put only one SSR(solid state relay).however just make sure how many do your equipment have. Just look at their parts list (that it dosent say dual SSR) . If yes then only one relay to replace But also check that I/O board isn't bad Sometimes the board gets wrong and we replace other components. Just check that when oven is hot I/O board isn't sending any voltage to the SSR Also , replace the thermostat tripper since after getting trip 4-5 times it's get faulty after some time .

The dryer only gets hot sometimes. The gas line

it could be the igniter or glow coil as it is sometimes called. if it is glowing orange in color it may only be igniting once in a while as it is on it's way out. the igniter needs to glow white hot in order to light the gas every time.
