This model doesn't have a tech sheet. The dryer has been vacuumed,thermal fuse was replaced(blown)  cut-off kit replaced and a lint trap kit was installed. Customer stated maintenance came and cleaned out the Ducting system and reassembled the vent hose. Dryer has stop working again. Does anyone have the tech sheet? Does anyone know the reading I should get on the thermistor? Lastly the element was ohmed to ground on both leads no shorts.

"Customer stated maintenance came and cleaned out the Ducting system and reassembled the vent hose"

 

Double check the work of the maintenance guy. Also, if the ducting system has a power vent motor, check to make sure the motor is working.  There's normally a pressure switch on these, not unlike a water level pressure switch on a washing machine, that senses pressure and turns the motor on. Don't forget to check the vanes on the blower motor wheel; the vanes often stop up with lint so the motor doesn't end up moving much exhaust air. The thermistor is about 10K ohm. The Samurai has a featured article on testing vents.

I gave a refund on this one and walked away. No tech sheet was available. The board had to be the issue,
