Kenmore Series 90 Thermostat Problem

I ahve a Kenmore series 90 clothes dryer , replace a bad heating coil last year and it has worked fine until recently . I makes heat , but it will take at least two 90 minute cycles to dry a regular load . I check all the thermostats , two next to the heating coil and two on the exhaust . All thermostats and the coil showed resistance on my multi meter except for the thermostat on the lower portion of the exhaust . It is the only one with four prongs(all the others have two) , i get resistance on the larger silver prongs but not on the brass ones . Does any know if this would mean that this is the problem , I believe that its called the high limit thermostat.
Thanks in advance.

Clean out the vent to the outside, Most common problem with dryers. Thermostat with 4 prongs is temp control and it is working, Need model # to help better
