Question throws circuit breaker
Model Number: DLB155)B   Brand: Hotpoint   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com

My dryer runs fine and I believe overheats. Then the circuit breaker throws.
I can run it without heat with no problem. There is no problem with the outlet or plug itself. Suggestions? Thermostat? I have cleaned all the ducting, pulled it away from the wall, removed all lint..there are no obstructions.

denman is a splendid one to behold

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for DLB155)B models | AppliancePartsPros.com

Unplug the unit and the wires at the elements.
Be sure to mark them or make yourself a diagram.
Then measure across the elements using a meter I am not sure what they should be but they should have continuity anywhere from 10 to 50 ohms.
Then measure from each element connector to the frame, they should all be infinite ohms.
If not an element has broken and is touching the frame, this can cause it to run hot as the thermostats cannot regulate it.
It can also pull excessive current, blowing your breaker.
