My dryer (GE model # DBL333EB3WW) is getting too hot within a matter of seconds. I had to hook up a 4 prong plug to it and I connected the red and black wires bass ackwards. I have since corrected that problem, but I'm sure I fried something when I first turned it on. The element is glowing red and the case gets almost too hot to touch. Should I :pisser:   on it and get a new drier or would the parts be cheaper? HELP ME!!!

Hooking the black and red wires up backwards didn't hurt anything...turn the dryer to "air only...no heat" if the dryer still gets hot in this setting then the element is partially shorted....if it doesn't get hot then you most like have a severe vent restriction (airs not getting out)....let us know.

Thanks man. I set to air dry and it still got hot, so it must be a short somewhere. There is no blockage anywhere from the back of the dryer to the vent outside. Is there site where I can find a repair manual?

seems like the Heating Element may be partially shorted to the Case.
