do you have a procedure for checking the switch/ pin outs? I had one go bad years ago was the plastic connector that melted from vibration of the wires. hardwired them and was much better. are there only the tow tstats and two fuses? one stat and fuse is on heater cover and other fuse and tstat are on front cover of tube on bottom of dryer is that all? if heater and fuses and tstats are all good then either motor or timer? any pin outs for timer?

im going to reinstall the element. my question is the centrifugal switch on motor- is it built into the motor or can it be replaced (just the switch) Also, how many fuses are there in this dryer? I see one on the duct, at the bottom of dryer in the front 1 on the elelment those are both ok. in a parts diagram they show another t-stat and a thermal fuse but with the motor, are they on or near the motor? #8,10 are tstat and fuse but where are they on dryer?

I removed heater element seemed like it had good continuity. put my meter on it I dont believe it had 11 ohms. I can recheck it again tuesday its in my truck(i have my motorcycle today) where does it get the resistance from? the cycling t-stat? 2 contacts on that t-stat should have continuity and other two should have some resistance correct? is that where the 11 ohms are?according to schematic theres resistance across the white and black wire through the contacts on side of cycling t-stat.

checked hi limit and its closed so its good, the temp switch has a 10k resister ill have to check that i guess. also, what about the drive motor, is there a centrifugal switch that send s voltage to heater? guess ill have to reinstall it and check voltage?
