Question about Dryers
There are several issues that can cause this most common is the vent restricted backing up heat in the dryer if its as old as you say you need to check the whole vent system it has to be 4inches dia all the way if its mashed or drooping under the house its restricted if its folded over or mashed behind the dryer its restricted the thermal limiter is a safety thermostat it opens about 300 degrees to prevent fire the dryer has three thermostats an operating thermostat a safety thermostat and the thermal limiter if the operating thermostat fails then the safety thermostat takes over and cycles on about 165 on and off if both thermostats fail then the thermal limiter opens about 220-300 depending and it doesn't reset and cuts all the power to the dryer till a tech can check everything i just told you about so if your vent is clear and the best way to vent is 4inch pvc drain pipe 90 it up behind the drier then connect with a short peice of metel vent then just replace all three thermostats

Check the vent to make sure that it is not obstructed
check the frount panel of the dryer, disasemble it to make sure that there is no lint inside the filter housing
check the foam seal arround the blower housing
check the blower wheel to see it is not striped
chek the door seal for a tear
operating thermastat kiking off right
most of the time the issue with the limit blowing is a venting problem i would go there first
