Dryer thermal fuse blows repeatedly.

Kenmore Electric Dryer model110.64972301

Over the last 2 years the dryer has intermittently become nonfunctional. In other words it completed the previous cycle and then could not be started whether recently used or cold.
Sears technicians have replaced the thermal fuse and verified that the exhaust was not obstructed on at least 3 occasions. I have replaced the thermal fuse on at least 4 additional occasions. The dryer runs after replacing the fuse for 2-3 months in most cases before it blows again. It never blows during a cycle but we always discover that it has blown when attempting to start the dryer.
I have recently verified that the short wide exhaust is not obstructed or impeded in any way.
I have recently replaced the thermistor, thermal cut-off, and thermostat.
I was informed by a Sears technician that this model "has problems". I am not willing to pay another $150 for a technician to replace the $15 thermal fuse.
Any suggestions?
