Mathai, the most likely problem is that the one shot theremal cutout has been activated on the rear of the appiance inside the heater housing.. but there is a possibility that the control board behind the buttons on the front is defective, or that power to that board is missing for another reason...Is it possible that you can obtain the tools so that I can talk you through testing the thermal cutout and controlboard of the appliance?...Or would you prefer that I find an engineer local to you that can do the job for you?
Please rate the assistance given by me today & feel free to ask for further advice if needed
We had the engineer coming in yesterday and he said the control board/panel is potentially defective and needs to be replaced and apparently it costs £80GBP.
I am not sure if its worth spending that much on the spare part when the a new dryer is around 200 GBP.
Have you got any thoughts?
ok just did that
