Hi sorry to hear that.

Please provide a more detailed description about Capacitors?

How old the dryer is?

Does the display light? Anything else you can think of to tell me about this would help greatly ;-)

Thank you

Tech Michael PS I will research this for you in the meantime and will be back on here in a coupe of hours.

Thank you for your patience as this is a technical issue requiring some time.

the mains cable goes to what i assume is a smoothing capacitor. i have joined the mains cable l and n but there is no display when on/off switch is pressed. the dryer is only about 3 years old. if i had a schematic diagram i would be able to trace the mains input. ie is there an internal fuse or interlock/hi limit. i am an electrician.

Thank you for that information.

Will the dryer turn on or beep or anything?

Thank you
