You will need to check the following, and normally in this order:Plug socketPlug & FuseCableMains filterOn/Off switch (if appropriate)Door SwitchPCBElementMotorMotor Drive (if appropriate)
Thanks for the above.
No smell to any of these.
New development, tumble dryer turns over fine and appears to be working (with new fuse in plug) but no heat.
Have checked the continuity of the two thermostats v small one at top and larger one with purple ? reset button to left all attached to element casing. close to the element and inspection of element visually fine looking and no smell.
PCB looks and smells fine.
Wiring of element to thermostats is within element casing so hard to get at to test.
You need to do a continuity test on the element.. via so that you are ensuring the thermostats and cutouts are working.~If you can identify the source you can do this from the PCB
via the wiring
thanks for that.
Three leads down to the element in a sheet metal casing. Both thermostats continuous and there's continuity between pins in the element plug.
Does that mean we are talking PCB failure, even tho it turns over fine and the blower works?
Have you unplugged the element and tested from end to end of the individual elements within the block?
yep all ok
Then it will be the PCB
