How do you bypass thermal cutoff?

Keeping this in consideration, can you bypass a high limit thermostat?
The idea would be to bypass the thermostat, hi-limit or thermal cutoff one at a time and see if the dryer will heat. Then carefully plug the dryer in and run it to see if it will heat. If it heats the thermostat is the problem. If it doesn't heat then the thermal cut-off and hi-limit can be checked the same way.
Secondly, how does a thermal cutoff switch work? A thermal switch is an electromechanical device which opens and closes contacts to control the flow of electrical current in response to temperature change. It cuts off the current to critical machinery when a temperature limit is exceeded preventing potential burn out or failure.
Likewise, people ask, can I bypass the timer on my dryer?
If the dryer operates with the timer contacts bypassed you will need to replace the timer. DO NOT leave this bypass in place and use the dryer, this is for testing ONLY.
How do I reset my thermal fuse?
How to Reset a Thermal Fuse
- Unplug the clothes dryer's power cord from the wall outlet.
- Swing the front panel out towards you so that you can look into the compartment.
- Aim a flashlight at the flat-can-like component to locate the blown thermal fuse.
