Customer Question

Hi. Our DVTC 60w drier does not seem to stop at the end of the drying timer cycle and doesn't seem to be heating up to full temperature. Seems to be stuck on low temperature setting.The pause/ cancel function doesn't work, the only way to stop it turning is to switch it off. Is there a reset or is it a timer malfunction?

If the dryer isnt stopping when you set it going then its going to be the control board. As the timer behind there is a complete control board behind there.

Also if its not heating fully then it can also be a control board fault as well. As to be honest on there there isnt much in there. You have a control board, Heater and motor.

As you say it does heat up but not enough then the heater is fine so it just leaves the control board.
Now its quite common for these to fail as ive replaced loads of them on the past for faults like this.
And as its not stopping when it should can only be the control board as well.

So to cure this you will need to replace the control board behind the panel on there and that should sort the fault from there.
