Hello Jeff, I finally took the Kenmore dryer apart that I referred to in my earlier email and was able to remove the heater element. There were no obvious breaks in the coil and I checked it with an ohm meter and received a reading so I assumed that it was fine. I then checked the two gadgets to the left of the element with the ohm meter by pulling off one wire and testing with the other terminal and got a reading on the first gadget ? And then checked the second one the same way and did not get a reading so I removed it, it's a small white flat object with two terminals and it says microtemp on it. I checked the two terminals and then got an ohm reading. Any suggestions?
Harold

Canadian model?
Most Canadian models are not online so we cannot look up what the design/style is.

I found these close ones...
110.63942101 110.63942100 110.63942102

Those 3 styles are the heater on the bottom ( instead of the heater at the back ) style.


Dryer thermistor assembly Manufacturer Number 8577274

High-limit thermostat, 2 wire, 250 degree limit, 60 degree cool down before reset Manufacturer Number 3390291


See help videos.

Mild overload, confirm with a clamp-on ammeter.
If no excess current, then bad connection near the fuse causing local heating. Due to age, this might be more likely.
