But would rather see it crushed and recycled into something else
So, did I waste my friend's money by replacing his thermostats? His dryer was overheating. I also recommended a chimney sweep (the home builders in my area vent dryers through the roofs here). I don't remember his mod. #, but it is a late model GE.
