The dryer was bought in 2007, 7 years ago. It is an electric dryer.
The air flow from the cooling grill is weak: a gentle flow of warmish air rather than a blast. However, I have no way of knowing how strong the flow should be; if it was too strong the condenser might not cope, so maybe it should be weak.
You are not familiar with the dryer in question. It is a condenser dryer. It has no air hose; it vents through the Cooling Grill at the front.
Hi I'm sorry I was working with another dryer and your response got mis directed. Have you ever had your dryer professionally cleaned? This issue will happen when one of two things is the issue. One it needs a good cleaning internally or the thermostat is failing. Please use caution using this until it has a service. I have done many of these if you have the tools I will help you do this. Please let me know if you want o do this, you will need a special brush and it pays to replace the T-stat at the same time so you dont end up taking it apart again ;-) I will also let you know the best place to get that part and the brush. Thank you Tech Michael
It has never been professionally cleaned. The filters are not obstructing the airflow incidentally; I just ran the machine without each filter in turn and in each case it made little difference to the flow of air.
I am happy to replace the thermostat. I have a full range of tools except for the special brush.
Many thanks Michael. I have ordered a new thermostat from eSpares online.
Do you have a description of the special brush. (I do have some long handled brushes on wire handles, for delving into narrow places.)
Once the new thermostat arrives, if I cannot see where or how to fit it I will get back to you.
Best wishes in the meantime.
