Not heating at all...clothes just seem to be coming out dryer as they have been spun again.
how does the lid come off?...pretty flush and no visible screws on the front and sides ...is it just screws at the rear?
Thanks lid off. There looks like a large enclosed metal box in the middle but I can't see any switch's on it. Can you send a diagram?
The item highlighted in yellow has a reset button on it... First things first would be to test the throughput of the switch for continuity... Then if there is no continuity you will need to push the button and try again.You will need to test that part, the part next to it, and the heater element with a multimeter.
Please rate the assistance given by me before requesting any further advice.
Found the switch thanks...is it a push button?..there doesn't seem to be much push in it.
As you can tell by me struggling to get the lid off, I would struggle even knowing what a multimeter is let alone how it works.
I'll try the switch push / pull / turn when you reply which ever one I need to do and see if that works.
On test dry clothes still come out cold, so reset never worked but thanks worth a try.
I'm unlikely to go about buying and using a multimeter but would ask is it possible to buy a new heating unit or is that financially not worth it?
Ok.. If you can get a multimeter, I will talk you through testing the two switches/cut-outs at positions 3 & 3B, and the heater at position 10.You can get a cheap multimeter for around £6...Below are links to the parts that could be the problem... Testing the parts before purchase would be advisablePos 10 -(###) ###-####Heating element with sensorPos 3 -(###) ###-####Temperature regulator,manual reset,150c Pos 3B -(###) ###-####Temperature regulator,110/94 ELTH
Great stuff I will buy a metre tomorrow...thanks
I purchased an analogue mutlimetre purchased.
done that just under 8volts and the same on 3b as well
the element has 4 prongs to it, 2 high and two low ..in sequence from left to right of high, low, high low . Which combination do I apply the multimetre prongs to?
aprox 3.5v across both pairs
ok 7 ohms on both
sorry George 5.5 ohms
Have a look at the temperature probe just in case(###) ###-####
I don't know what the reading is supposed to be, but, just check that you are at least getting a reading
I connected the 2 prongs on the ohms meter together to set the meter at zero. The elements are show 5.5 . But 3, 3b and the temperature probe all get the needle to fly from left to right on the scale to bounce around at 0 ohms. Does that mean they are working?
Morning...I got a Rolson analogue metre. dial set to x10 ohms . Crossed the prongs and used dial at side to set to zero.
Readings- 1 - 0.40
2 - 0.40
3 - 2
5 - 1
4 heating element prongs showing 7 ohms top and bottom sets
Bought a better mutlimeter. At 200 ohms all read 0.3 except 3 which isn't setting any clear reading. It bounces around from .9 to over 2.00 and even reads higher. I have unscrewed 3 and am testing the flat metal surface.
Look at the chart below.. That should tell you when the switches are supposed to open and close again...
On the chart '3' is an NTC.. This should give a reading that is steady and only alters relative to how warm/cold it is.
It is called a Temperature Probe and the part number is(###) ###-####/p>
