Hi theres 2 things that can cause this #1 a dirty vent to the outside. #2 a dirty lint filer , Take the lint filter out & run hot water through it. If water wont flow through the screen, Its gummed up by Bounce sheet residue, Clean the filter . It should be ok

The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.
