You can classify all dryer overheating problems in two categories – airflow problems and faulty electronics. In fact, according to our experience, it seems that airflow problems are far more frequent than other faults. Still, you should never dismiss the possibility of a faulty electronic component in your home appliance.
It is worth pointing out that rather often an overheating itself may lead to electronic components breaking down, burning and shortening. This is the reasons why it is, in general, a good idea to repair your dryer early in case you encounter the first signs of a problem. Soldering alloys melting point temperature is around 190 degrees Fahrenheit. While normally the heat inside the dryer rarely reaches 150 degrees, the internal temperature will significantly rise in case of overheating.
