AF on your Cabrio means the Air Flow is being obstructed. Make sure the vent is secure and free of debris at the back of the appliance. Also ensure there is no obstruction where it is vented outside of your home. Lastly, make sure the lint trap is clean. Your dryer will still run normally, but it's best to go through your checklist so no further issues arise.

does your dryer have a dry sensor ? if so try changing the dial to a different setting that doesn't use the sensor, also some models have a separate button to turn off the dry sensor. it is meant to save energy if your clothes are dry before the time you set

Burrs? Where? Inside the drum? I would use a Dremel Motor Tool with a polishing or buffing wheel.

Yes, there are a couple of fuses inside your dryer, but they don't look like normal, common, household or electronic fuses. Usually one fuese will interrupt the heater circuit, while another one will kill power to the whole dryer.

Should just remove the screws and the lock and flip them over. Generally very easy and quick

it can be replaced but the new one will look just like in a few weeks anyway. Its just thin sheet steel uncoated and the heat comes right through that vent that is why it looks like that as far as rough edges just use a piece of sand paper or emory board or steel wool and rub it smooth. suff gets caught on the grate and the heat can burn it all the black is lint that melted on it but a new one look just like it in like i said a few weeks but to be safe and make sure its not getting to hot get a thermometer and check the temperature during low heat and high heat drying. low around 135f and high around 160f if it goes up over 170 there is a problem you may want a pro to check the unit.
