Avantixx 8 tumble dryer - It cuts out between 1 and 1 minute

Resolved Question:

Avantixx 8 tumble dryer - It cuts out between 1 and 1 minute after starting, usually after 10 seconds. You then have to wait 1 minute before trying to operate it again. When you turn the dial to a program the display lights up with drying time, you can press start and the drum rotates and heats air but straight away cuts out with no power or display after 10 seconds.

I have looked on spares and the heating element costs around £130, is this correct, would a defective heating element cause the display to go off. Replacing that element looks like a fairly straightforward job.

OK, can you also test the thermostat and element for continuity ?
