Improperly vented dryers don't just cause frustration from not drying your laundry, but also pose a serious fire hazard. This hazard can be drastically reduced or even eliminated by installing a fire-safe venting system.
All dryers are basically a drum, a belt, a motor, and a heat source. Throw in a few switches and bells, put it in a flimsy box of sheet metal with sharp edges and now it's a dryer. For these reasons, unless you're changing between gas and electric, it almost never makes sense to buy a new dryer.
Most dryers, gas or electric, contain three different types of thermostats: the cycling thermostat which turns on and off to maintain the temperature between 125 and 165ºF, the hi-limit thermostat which temporarily cuts off the heating element in case of an overheat condition, and a non-resettable thermal fuse which, depending on the type of fuse, either permanently cuts off the heating element or shuts down the entire dryer.
