Question about EuroTech EDC158 Electric Dryer
There is either a problem with the thermostats that turn off the heating element, or the heating element is plugged (elements has contact to ground and stays always on).
Heating element and thermostats are tested reading Ohms with a multimeter set at Rx1. If the circuit is open (Ohms stay infinite), then the part is defective.
If the machine overheated, then the element may be gone again. Test reading Ohms.
Also replace the thermostats (there should be two or three of them), unless the element had a contact, the most common cause for overheating is a shorted thermostat.
