Question about Hoover Dryers
Please can anyone offer some advice. We have just purchased a second hand Hoover condenser dryer (Six. TC 650). I'm sure the lady was honest but when we got it home and tried it - it tripped the RCD switch and everything goes off! I've replaced the fuses in the plug and no improvement. When I press the on button and set to dry it works for one second then trips again. My suspicion is that when we drove it home we laid it down on its back to get it in the car and this may have moved water around inside - there seems to be a slight sloshing sound when I manually turn the drum. Thanks for reading this - Any suggestions???
this could be the hater or the motor but sometimes just chafed wireing
Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

SOURCE: Dryer tripping RCD
Try disconnecting the heater and thermostats.
They are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
If it still trips, then the problem is likely to be more serious.
Hope this helps.
