Away on a trip and just got back. Temp readings have been fine since the defrost. Will check the values on solenoid and switch.

Awesome - thanks for the quick reply. There is a defrost button on the bottom you pull out. 9 F on first temp reading with a meat thermometer (gotta get a real one I guess).

2 year delay - heh.  Just noticed I hadn't followed up with the solution.

The problem was a loose contact to the heating element.  When I had taken it apart, I think I aggravated the problem, because the wire was now fried and the contact was quite loose.  I had taken it off to test resistance per instructions elsewhere. Replaced the wire and contact and haven't looked back.

Arrgh - Now it's not heating!  Will go back to square one.

Reg - thanks for the post, by the way.

I also looked at the coils.  One of the spacers was not in right, but probably not shorting.  It was tripping when I plugged the dryer in.  In one of the combinations of putting it back together and turning it on. I plugged it in first, fipped the breaker and I noticed a sizzling sound from the breaker. 

Turns out that loose wires will kill the breaker.  They seemed tight, but the breaker it self sounded like parts were rattlin' around inside (more so than the new one). 

2 weeks and still happy.
