Frigidaire dryer not heating up. Found thermister in blower wheel front housing burnt out. I cleaned all the lintel from unit and lint duct line. Replaced thermister had the unit heat up and run for 2 hours on high heat. It ran great. I get a call from client 3 days later stating the dryer won't heat up and stops with in 30 to 60 seconds of turning on. I returned to find the thermister blown again. I replaced it and turned unit on with top off. I saw the ignitor come on and flame. The unit stopped after 3 minutes. Now when I turn it back on it shuts off in 30 seconds. I tested thermister and its bliwn again. What gives?

Good afternoon and thanks for posting! 

Could I have the model # of the unit to find some specific information for the appliance? 

Thanks!
