thermal cut-off or thermal fuse for samsung electrical dryer

I recently encountered a problem with a customer's dryer (model: DV42H5200EW/A3) that was not heating properly. Upon inspection, I discovered that the dryer vent was clogged on the outside of the house, which caused the thermal cut-off located on the heating element housing to fail.

To address this issue, I began by thoroughly cleaning the customer's outside exhaust vent and the entire vent hose exhaust in the back of the dryer to remove all accumulated lint. I then unplugged the dryer and disassembled it to gain better access to the heating element housing.

Using a multimeter, I conducted an ohm test on the thermal cut-off and found that there was no continuity. Additionally, I ohm tested the heating element and high-limit thermostat and found them to be in good working order.

To resolve the issue, I replaced the faulty Dryer Thermal Fuse #DC96-00887C with a new one, reassembled the dryer, and plugged it back in. The dryer started heating normally again, and the customer was able to resume using their appliance as usual.
