Default MayTag Performa Down

Hello I have a similar situation as mentioned in the original post. My question is; is the themal fuse normally open or closed. I noticed in the suggested testing that it should read 0 ohms which indicates it's open, but I am unsure if this is normal or do I have a blown thermal fuse? I have also checked the element and it reads 11.7 ohms and there is no indication of a short. I first noticed there was an issue when I had a burning smell coming from the dryer. My first indication was a bad motor, cause I replaced the belt about 3 months ago. But with the safeties it sounds like the motor may be good. Please Help!

Thanks
