Replaced the parts that come with the kit.  Still dead  :tickedoff:

Given the age of this dryer I'm thinking of replacing, though I really don't want to.  I'd hate to keep replacing parts to the tune of a new dryery or pay someome to come out and look at it and replce wht is wroght.  Aging that would probalby come to tabout the cost cost of a new dryer anyway. 

Unless someone can think of another thing to try that isn't going to cost more than $50.

I'd like to thank you guys for the responses, you have been great.

Do the (new) Thermostats show continuity now ?

OR did they "blow" again becuse of Venting issues ?

If the blower is slipping that can cause the fuse to blow

This saga just keeps getting better.  My wife finds a GE Mod DJSR473ET6AA on the web site for the local trader.  People want $50, seems like a good deal, dryer is in good shape.  I get around to hooking it up tonight and this one won't go.  It's getting it 240V according to the multimeter.  The light in the tumbler comes on when the door is open, it goes off when the button is pushed.

What I've thought was a little odd, is that when the door is open and the dryer is set to timer setting it is making a noise and it coming from the dial with the timer.  It hasn't moved that I noticed so I'm going to let it sit with the door open for 5 or so minutes to see it it moved. 

Holy cow, the timer moved with the door open.  It didn't move one minute when I had the power on and the door shut.  So, now I'm really back ackwards confused.

You either have a broken belt or a blown fuse. The fuse is a WE4X800. It is mounted on the heater pan. To get to it you remove the screws from inside the door holding down the top. While you have the top up you can take a peek at the belt around the drum.

I can see the belt from where I'm working on the power and it looks to be all in one piece and good.  I checked the continuity of the wires just to make sure they are correct and they are.  I went and checked the breaker to make sure it is wired correctly and it is. 

Hook up the power and the light inside the tumbler still comes on, go to start it and nothing.  Am about to delve inside to check the fuse.  Just wanted to give an update.

The fuse(thermal limit) is located beside the heating element housing.
About the size of a dime. When the blower slips the fuse blows.
