My manual reset thermostat is tripping.  I just got this LG DLG0332W dryer used, and again, the previous owner claimed it worked without issue.  I can reset it, but it will trip again.  I am not sure what to fix.  I am looking for a root-cause on why it is tripping.  I know the ignitor, valve, flame sensor, etc all work because if I reset the thermostat it will start up and work perfectly for 1 load before tripping the sensor again.

The dryer vents through the roof with a 4" metal duct.  Everything is recently cleaned.

Does it mean there is too much restriction in the ductwork?  Too tight of a space and the whole thing is getting choked for air and therefore too hot?  Can I adjust the gas valve for a little less heat or something?


Did you have any luck with fixing your dryer with the same issue?

Thanks in advance.

Disconnect the vent to check for good air-flow and check the temperature with an empty load, Timed Dry, high heat.
it should cycle soemwhere between 135F & 160F.
