Have you seen any flashing lights ?

OK, all this indicates heating element is faulty and will need replacement.

What is the FD number of the appliance and do you want to carry out the replacement yourself ?

No, I don’t want to do it myself

OK, the appliance is around 17 years old.

Try this:

Unplug it and remove the rear panel.

You will see thermostat with red reset button on it.

Press and see if it clicks, if it does then reconnect everything and plug it back.

It should reset however, if it wont work you will have to replace heater element.

The cost of repairs will be around £220 including parts.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
