I have replaced the thermal fuse 4 times. Sometimes it lasts several months, but most recently I replace it and it blew the first time I turned the dryer back on. How can I check the heat element? I have a multimeter and would like to know what I can do

either the cutoff is open circuit or closed circuit if you get any reading at all it is good. I would look at the control panel look for overheating components. Tap any relays to release them if they arced inside. Whenever a microwave blows a fuse it is time to replace the huge capacitor at the back and possibly the magnetron. I resurrected my Sharp R9H66 Microwave Convection Oven easily. Had to replace the magnetron twice in the last 5 years
If you pull it out of closet and replace fuse and it works even after turning off again etc for several times--something is happening when it gets put back---did you disconnect venting connection when you pulled it out?
from your description, it seems the little fuse is overheating sometimes, a short is a short and an immidiate fuse blower. i would use a higher amperage fuse, 30 amps. any electronic tech can replace this, doesnt have to be your Gaggenau guy, as it seems to me hes made a regular income of this
your blowing that many thermal fuses, id replace all the thermostats. (2) come in one kit both on heater box 1 top and one bottom. id also look into your venting, a clogged fo kinked vent is going to overheat the unit and blow all sorts of stuff(not to mantion the potential fire hazard of a bad vent
you probably have a short in the circuit some where. you need to replace the transistor and look at all the solder joints to make sure there not damaged or cracked. i have the same amplifier and i replaced the fuse several times and it blew every time up until the last time when the 4 of the power output transistors blew. what ever you do do not try and power it on till you do all the things i told you or you will have sparks and fire. my mistake cost me my amplifier. but might help you get yours repaired
Then recently, these additional problems:
1. The picture cannot be restored by turning off then on.
2. Sometimes, several channels will have the same picture.
3. Sometimes several channels will have the same ghost-like picture.
the above all problems are due to one that is weak signal.
1 check for antena or cable or satellite input is ok or wire might be defective due to old.
2 input socket is loose some where.
3 loose contact near tuner or some print break.
4 at last & final its tuner might be defective.
hope this will help.
