1) bad / dirty / corroded / over-heated / connectors can over-heat again
... the wire on one end of it got hot, is chared with melting on orange coating.
... should I be worried about something else that caused this to fail?.
2) Dryer Vent system
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 135F and 160F
Check / clean the Dryer Vent
Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.
Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.
