I have had this dryer for about 6 years and it has been amazing, no problems. The other night I heard a scraping sound and the dryer wouldn't hear after that. I took it apart and noticed the heating coil (element) had broken into many pieces. I ordered a new coil and a new thermal fuse as I read that it is wise to switch them both. i replaced both parts, hooked all the wires up (I took photos to help me remember) and plugged it back in. I put the settings on high heat and turned the dryer on. Immediately a flash of light came from the back of the dryer and it stopped heating again. It happened right away. I took the dryer apart again and the new coil was broke in half right by the terminal. I just ordered a new coil and went ahead and ordered a high limit thermostat also. What else could it be? I don't have a multi meter to test stuff. Could the high limit thermostat cause this? Am I missing something for it to happen this quick? HELLLLP!
