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..........
