My guess would be either the thermistor, 8577274, or a sticky relay on the control board, W10298626.

Agreed. That unit is heating too much and we should be glad those are opening or "blowing."

Thanks guys  I been suspecting the relay on the board sticking..I did remove and cleaned the thermistor.
Plus I think the thermistor being bad it would be more consistent , problem is it is random when it blows....
