Hiya,
How are your diy skills?
Do you have, and can you use, a multimeter?

Thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Afraid no and no...

Hiya,
OK, in that case, it's not an easy fix.

Unless the wiring is burned out to show the problem, you have no way of testing any thermostats.

Unplug the appliance.
Take the top and rear panel off.

This will expose the heater connections and the rear thermostats.

Are they burned out?

Thanks

Nothing burnt out, although unable to see reset switch

Hiya,
There is no reset switch on this machine.

Unfortunately, without being able to test anything, you've gone as far as you can.

It could be thermostats, heater, control board/timer or wiring.

I'll opt out of the question and open it to all again.
See if anyone has a method of testing that requires no test equipment.

I won't guess at the cause of the fault.

Sorry

No probs,


 


Thanks for your help

Hello,
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient with us as these are technical questions and some testing may be required.
It may take a bit of back and forth conversation to be sure we have all the information in order to make a proper diagnosis.
You will need to perform a few tests to be sure if the heating element is bad or just a thermal limit or a bad thermostat.You could do this with a cheap multimeter from Radio Shack even, please let me know how you wish to proceed?
Thank you
