Miele SOFTTRONIC T4223C Dryer

The Miele service man's repair wasn't really enduring, looks to me he didn't find the real cause. Now I'm going to repair it myself...
Thanks in advance!

The overtemp fuse has blown 2 times now. First time I called the Miele service. They charged me over 100€ and only replaced the fuse, couldn't find any real cause. After a year, it happened again. No heating. I checked the fuse and it was blown. Ordered one from Miele, cost me about 20€. Now the dryer is working again but I don't know for how long. All filters are cleaned after each use.
I want to check the service mode and see if there are any errors in the memory. As the dryer has no display, I would be completely lost using the service mode without service manual...
Maybe someone else has the manual at hand?

Vent should be rigid metal.
Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK,
if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.
Foil Duct Tape is OK.
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat,
the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 57C and 70C

The heat exchanger is also clean.
At the backside of the machine, warm (but dry) air comes out (from the heat exchanger), which is why I put the dryer about 20cm away from the wall...
The machine is not generally overheating. I don't know what happened, why the fuse was blown. I also found in the internet that I am not the only one having this exact problem with exactly this model...
