Question about Dryers
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!
It sounds like the double switch is bad and only working on one setting! Or a 2 stage blower motor that needs to be replaced!needs to be replaced!
This is a situation that you will need service!
If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!
Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!

You will be fine now!

If the dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay.
The temperature is controlled by three parts. There is the operating thermostat which is on the blower housing and is rated at 150 degrees. This is high heat.
The operating thermostat sits in a thermostat heater which is controlled by the temperature switch. The temperature switch controls how much voltage passes it to the thermostat heater. This is how we achieve lower temperatures. There is about a 15/20 degree difference between high heat and low heat.
The restricted vent may have caused the appearance of the dryer running hot.
I would suggest you check the temperature coming out of the exhaust. It can be checked with the vent hose pulled off. Any thermostat with a range between 120 degrees and 160 can be used. With the vent removed check the temperature of the air in the exhaust. At high temperature it should cycle between 135 degrees to approximately 155 degrees. This is high heat.
If you turn the temperature switch to a lower setting such as delicate you should see a lower temperature in the exhaust. It may only be 15 degrees lower but it should show a lower temperature.
I hope this information helps to resolve this problem.

Setting a thermostat has nothing to do with outdoor temperature, but more to do with what is a comfortable setting for you and your utility bill.
A common misconception associated with thermostats is that a furnace works harder than normal to warm the space back to a comfortable temperature after the thermostat has been set back, resulting in little or no savings. This misconception has been dispelled by years of research and numerous studies. The fuel required to reheat a building to a comfortable temperature is roughly equal to the fuel saved as the building drops to the lower temperature. You save fuel between the time that the temperature stabilizes at the lower level and the next time heat is needed. So, the longer your house remains at the lower temperature, the more energy you save.
Another misconception is that the higher you raise a thermostat, the more heat the furnace will put out, or that the house will warm up faster if the thermostat is raised higher. Furnaces put out the same amount of heat no matter how high the thermostat is set; the variable is how long it must stay on to reach the set temperature.
In the winter, significant savings can be obtained by manually or automatically reducing your thermostat's temperature setting for as little as four hours per day. These savings can be attributed to a building's heat loss in the winter, which depends greatly on the difference between the inside and outside temperatures. For example, if you set the temperature back on your thermostat for an entire night, your energy savings will be substantial. By turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours, you can save about 5 to 15 percent a year on your heating bill -- a savings of as much as 1 percent for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long.
Hope this helps..........

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your
screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear
smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer
items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very
low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.
For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution,
and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a
resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support
the higher resolutions.
Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and
capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.
Text and images are sharper and smaller at high screen resolutions
Text is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen
Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
