Dryers have several Thermal couplers that open the circuits to shut down when they get too hot.
I would take it to a dealer to be repaired. or If you know what you are doing you might want to clean all the lint out of the dryer and heating coils being very careful not to break one, and try it after cleaning the lint on the inside of the heating coils of the dryer....Note: make sure you unplug the dryer first you might get electricuted working on it plugged in to the 220 volts AC.

Good luck and be careful...

Overheating


sounds like you may have a plugged up vent or a bad motor. disconect vent hose from dryer and run a load of clothes if it works ok it is the vent. If the motor is shutting off and wont start untill it cools off youneed a motor. somewhere around 175.00 total cost would be a moderate estimate depending on which dryer could go to 225.00 depending on area and company that services.

Wont start up.


Sounds like the motor is failing. The main cause of failure is overheating due to clooged venting. Is the dryer taking more than 60 mins to dry?? If so then the vent is clogged. Its likely too that the motor is covered with lint and not being able to properly dissipate its own heat, you could clean it and see if it helps but usually once they are shutting down overheated (the burning smell is the motors' internal windings being very hot) they need replacement.
