Here are your parts
Parts for Roper RES7646KQ3 Dryer - AppliancePartsPros.com

See the attachment for the wiring diagram.

Did this unit ever run OK at this location?

I would check that you have not broken the electrical code.
The size of the breaker is dependent on the size of the wire going to the appliance.

What size breaker do you have?
What gauge of wire goes to the dryer?

Try running a cycle with air only.
If the breaker holds then you know that the problem is likely in the heater circuit of the unit.
