I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer. When the dryer begins to overheat, it indicates that either the air flow is restricted or the heating element has shorted. The normal operating temperatures for the dryer will run between 150 to 155 degree with about a 10 degree variation. In order to test the operating temperatures will require using a thermometer. Disconnect the vent hose at the back of the dryer. Set the temperature to "Cotton/High" heat setting. Place a thermometer in the airflow blowing out the exhaust and start the dryer. Let the heating element cycle OFF and back ON 2-3 times before taking your final reading. The normal operating temperature will have an average temperature of 150-155 degrees. The exhaust temperature can rise 10-15 degrees above 155 degrees and it can fall 10-15 below 155 degrees before the heating element cycles OFF and back ON.

Make sure that the element is not broken or damaged in any way. If it is then replace the element. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
