Why is my dryer overheating?

Hello. I have a Kenmore dryer 592-895090. I just changed the heating element for the second time. When I installed it, it ran for about 3 seconds and stopped with a blown breaker. I removed it and re-installed it. It now heats, except it overheats. I get a hE warning. I did a check of the exhaust (fine), an connectivity check on the three instruments on the heating element (thermostats, etc. all fine), and the two other thermostats that are next to the heating element (both fine). I am now wondering if its a problem with control board after whatever caused the breaker to jump. How can I check if its that, or any other thing worth checking. Thanks. Nick
