Customer Question

Hi, I have a DCU7230B which has stopped heating, and now only runs for say, a minute at a time and stops for 30 seconds or so inbetween. I have checked the heater unit with a multimeter and it all seems to be fine. Could it be a control problem? With best wishes,

Hello Adrian, my name is George..

Check the manuual resetting thermostat on top of the heating element casing? Check that the circuit is Closed... If the circuit is OPEN, push the red button down and check the thermostat again to ensure it is CLOSED.

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Hi, yes it is definitely closed and passing current.

It was the dryer product code I needed... Never mind, I have found that.

When you checked the resettable thermostat, did you check the resistance of the NTC on the heater?

Have you also checked the NTC on the door?
