Our Frigidaire Affinity Dryer, Mod FAQE 7077 KWO, seems to be stuck on High Heat.
I haven't found a schematic on the unit or in my paperwork. Is there one inside the unit or one available online?
Any thoughts on what to check first? (the vent is clear)
I placed the unit on "no heat/Fluff" and still have heat.

I'd guess the heat relay is stuck on. Its internal contacts get burnt and stick together.

Just to follow up, everything ohm'ed OK except the heater coils which showed no continuity.
Found coil broken and steel board holding the coils melted (it's a wonder it didn't catch fire.
Replaced heater assembly (checked continuity OK before installing)
Now my problem is no heat, so the mystery continues
