Default Dryer too Hot

Sorry it has taken so long. The dryer is about 9 years old and has worked fine until recently. I have tested it with out exhaust pipe connected and without clothes in it with a meat thermometer taped to inside of door. It always goes up past 200 degrees on the low setting--Clothes have been shrunk. It definitely does turn off the heating coils--just not soon enough. I will retest the coils in the manner that you reccomended and inspect the seals. I did take the whole dryer apart to replace the drum seal and clean everything but it worked fine for about a month after that. I really appreciate your help. Thanks--MJK
