Question about Dryers
I am afraid of a fire starting. What can I do. Can this be replaced?
Make sure the blower vent passageway is clean and free of debris. It should like the vent is plugged.

You will want to make sure the lint screen and vent are free and clear.
If the dryer is blowing out the vent outside the house as it should, then you have a thermostat problem.
If the operating thermostat does not open properly then the element will cycle by the hi-limit thermostat which will cause the dryer to heat more than normal.

You are always better off using steel on these kinds of conversions and do not worry about how hot it gets,..Aluminum will get hot too. Steel is more rigid and less likely to dimple in while installing or hooking up the external vent system... Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Dryer takes a long time to dry.
This sounds like the vent is plugged up. The dryer gets rid of moisture through the dryer vent and hose. When this gets plugged up it will take a long time to dry or the hi limit will shut it off. When the dryer vent or hose is partialy blocked it will take vary tong times to dry the clothes and will eventualy cause the dryer to stop drying all together.

put hand at the outlet to see if the warm air is freely coming out. if not there could be a blockage in a pipe inside or the propler fan on the motor has failed.

Check for a faulty high limit thermostat. It is a small round black device mounted on a metal plate. It is usually mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. It can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohm meter. It should have no continuity. If it has continuity, it is stuck open and is faulty. I am attaching a pic showing a thermal fuse and high limit thermostat for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.
