Question update on electric dryer

Hi Gene,
Thanks for responding. I found an analog ohmeter and found a spot on the web that instructed me in adjusting it, and using it. On the thermal fuse, the high limit thermostat, and the connection to the heater element, the meter needle swung over to 0 just as it should. On the cycling thermostat, it didn't move. I took it out and matched it to a new one at a parts place in town. Just before installing it, I put the ohmeter on the new one - checked OK. Believe it or not, when I put it on the old one again, it checked out OK!!!! I re-installed it and the dryer blows nice hot air!
What in the world happened?! I'm happy for the new life in the old dryer, but apprehensive it may happen again?
