Hi

How long did the dryer work for after replacing the heater?

Is the drum turning still?

Hi Daniel,

The dryer ran, with the drum turning normally for about 15 mins until all the lights started to flash. During that 15mins the heater did not work at all.

Hi

Ok did you test the old heater and thermostats with a multi meter to see if any of the thermostats on the top of the heater were faulty?

Also have you tested the thermostats on the new heater as well yet?

Hi Daniel,

I do not have a multi meter. I will get hold of one in the next couple of days to perform the tests you suggest. It is late here in the UK, so I will leave it there for the time being.

Thank you for your help.
