Default Over heats and shuts off
Model Number: DDE7900 series   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The dryer gets very hot, then shuts off. After cooling down, it will start back up until it over heats and shuts off again.
This only seems to happen when there is a load of laundry in the dryer. When I run the dryer without a load, it does not shut off.
IF I DISCONNECT THE VENT TUBE FROM THE WALL, when it has a load in it, THEN it will dry the load without shutting off. THE BUILDING DRYER VENT DUCT HAS BEEN VACUUMED OUT. But the dryer still shuts off, if vent tube is attached to the building outlet vent duct.

It seems it is a thermostat issue of some kind. However, I am not sure exactly which part to replace (part#?).
I understand a hi temp fuse will burn out, if a dryer over heats. Should I assume the dryer would not start back up or heat after that burns out?
Please help. It's a pain to pull the dryer out and run it without it being connected to the vent.
