there are thermostats that will pop if the dryer runs to hot,a dryer needs to be pulled apart at least once a year to be cleaned out,all it does is move air,if the vent line is blocked or lint builds up in the duct that the lint filter slides into the thermal fuse or high limit thermostat will pop as a safety,if you don't clean the dryer and vent line the new part will pop again.also the door switch could be broke or the belt could have snapped,some dryers have a safety switch,if the belt snaps the switch will open and the dryer won't start.so first thing you'll need a meter,unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter,remove the metal duct that the filter slides into,on the top of the blower wheel housing you'll see a white part,this is the thermal fuse,you have to remove at least one of the wires,check it with the meter,if you send the full model number i can look up your dryer,most likely the fuse will be a 3392519 thermal fuse,like i said if the fuse is bad you have to clean out the dryer and vent line or the fuse will pop again.and check the door switch,open the door,push the switch in and out if it makes a clicking sound most likely it's good.let me know what you find and send model number.
i looked up your model dryer,your lint filter is on top so your duct or shute that the lint filter slides into is in the back.unplug the dryer,pull it a little way from the wall,look in the back to see how long the vent line is,then slide the dryer out enough so you can remove the vent line without ripping it off the dryer depending on how it's attached,some are clamped,some just slide out if connected to an elbow piece of vent tubing, taped on or some are screwed on.remove the vent line pull the dryer out and remove the back panel,on the left side you'll see the shute or metal duct, pull out the lint filter and remove the two phillips screws,remove the 4 screws that hold the duct on,remove the duct and clean it out,with a shop vac vac up any lint in the blower wheel and what's visible then set the vac to blow and blow out the blower wheel,the pipe where the vent line connects and the heater box on the right side,put the dryer back together except for the two phillips screws on top.now if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,just stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint outside,first go outside and look at the hood where the air blows out,make sure nothing is blocking it,if there's a cage or like chicken wire remove it and keep it off so no lint can get trapped in it,you want the lint to blow outside freely,before you even start to clean out the dryer and vent you can start the dryer,go outside and check how strong the air is blowing out and then check it after you clean it out,it should be stronger,another sign that something is blocked is your clothes take longer to dry.now you should pull the front apart and clean the inside cabinet.watch video,it will show you what to do.hope this helps and you should do this around every year to 18 months.it's easier than it sounds to do http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGIG8Wo5-N4
When you pull the duct off and turn the dryer on, do you feel air coming from the back of the dryer?? If you do, that means the blower is working. The most common failure on electric dryers that are no heat is a heater coil or element. These are usually pretty easy to replace. Please make sure before you do any work to the inside of your dryer you unplug it! Before you attempt to diagnose the heater coil, make sure the vent line inside the dryer and at the blower is clear of all debris. This could be the problem. There are instructions on this website to take a dryer apart. There are also instruction to diagnose and replace the heater coil.
if you use the kitchen exhaust it will ruin the kitchen ducts and forse flow hot air and lint onto the range hood into the kitchen . . stupid advise .. it needs to be ducted directly through the wall to outside using a rain gard the temp can get as high as 47 degrees hot but not too hot it forses air out at a ratio of aprox 15 psi
You will need to take the dryer apart, pull the drum out. Then at the bottom you will see the main discharge, take it off and insert a 45 degree elbow, you will need to then install hard venting to reach the knock out on the side. Be sure to use metal duct tape when sealing the venting to avaoid fire haz.
Pull the exhaust vent off and check for obstructions, if there's no flow, all the heat is going to build up and also block any lint from escaping out the vent as well. This can be a fire hazard as well. You may also need to open the dryer and clean out all the lint build up. When you pull the pull flex hose off the back (the 4"diameter one) check in the back of the machine in the pipe and also in the flex tube. You may have to explore a little in the exhaust line to find the blockage...sounds like this is your issue... k
You need to check the following things to sort out the issue you are facing with--
Improper sorting •Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally, to dry a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics •Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take (like beach towels) longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set •Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint filter is full •Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed ducting •Check installation instructions for proper ducting/venting.
•Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and unobstructed.
•Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
•Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the dryer venting is correct.
Blown fuses or tripped •Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers circuit breaker use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.
Overloading/combining loads •Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at a time.
Underloading •If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items to ensure proper tumbling.

We're buying a JES9900BAF for an island and found ducting instructions in the installation guide. Go to jennair.com and find the page for your range model. Then click on the "Specs/Literature" tab (it's about 2/3 down the page). The installation guide is a PDF document.
