Hey JW, Thanks for the reply but check this out ...
I read something about the breaker switches in regards to the 220 side of the dryer on the "net" while I was waiting for you to respond.
Had the ole lady go out in the garage and flip them off and on and guess what?! The damn thing started heating!!
I read where the 220 side of the dryer actually controls the heating of the dryer and I did have a broken coil in the element so I figured I'd try resetting the breaker first before buying a limit and thermostat, that I might not need. That sound right to you?
Seems to working fine. Will treat ya to that beer when I get home from work. Thanks for all your help and I know where to turn now when I have appliance issues.
