There's a burning smell coming from our GE electric clothes dryer. Anything a layman can do to troubleshoot and fix it?

The clothes are drying and from what I can tell the vent is not blocked. I don't know how to describe the smell except for 'burning', and the last load of clothes we pulled out of it were dry but smelled like ugly death. My girlfriend bought the machine new in 1995.
Any suggestions appreciated, as we don't really have the funds to call in a repairman - or to replace the bastard.
