How do I replace a Thermal Fuse in a Dryer?

The blower fan housing has a thermal fuse on it. If the air gets too hot, it will go to the outdoors. If the vent tube is blocked or the damper is closed, it will trip. The thermal fuse shuts off the dryer when it goes off. It prevents the dryer from heating, but the dryer still runs. If the dryer trips, the thermal fuse needs to be replaced.
