Thanks

OK back up and running - do you have a multimeter or volt meter that you can use to check for power at different parts of the appliance?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not something I own
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK then without some means of checking for voltages we are just whistling in the wind, there are basically only three things to a dryer, the motor, heater and main pcb. If either of these fail you will get the same result. Without being able to confirm that power is getting to the components you will just end up changing a lot of expensive components with a hope and a prayer. If you can borrow on or get a friedn who knows how to use one I can tell you where to test. Othersise its really wasting money.

Ian I will have one tomorrow and will get back to you
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

No worries, I will be here with the exception of cutting the lawn !! If you are buying a new one, you only need one that will measure volts AC - resistance and continuity (its got a beeper)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Back again. The only multi-meter I could source measures DC & AC voltage, DC Current, Resistance & Diodes
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK if you put it on diode and put the two probe tips together does it beep?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No beep display shows 1 - will be out for 10mins
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK
