Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Model # tells me it is a convection oven. You can't dry clothes in a convection oven. they end up smelling like last nights dinner.
Please check the model #. there may be relay that controls the power to the heating element. this relay could be not functioning correctly, or it could be in the timer. maybe the thermostat that monitors the interior temperature is gone. It could be sticking closed. tough to say with the model number.

If the vent is blocked, it will not stop the heat, it will only restrict the air flow.
Generally a couple of things can cause the heat to stop.
Either the thermostat or the element.
I would first suggest the element.
It may be fatigued therefore the internal wire within the element becomes fragile and eventually breaks down. Although it is an electrical item, it is mechanically built and can fail.
In some dryers the element is held in clips.
These clips can cut into the element.
The thermostat maintains temeperature but again, it is mechanically built and can also break down.
If you are not capable of inspecting or troubleshooting the internals of the dryer (i.e remove the cover and look for the failurer), then have it inspected by a repairman. There is not too much that can go wrong with a dryer. The most expensive part wuld be the motor that spins the drum.
