Anyone know where I can buy part number 2800090200RP besides Dimplex? it is a small on/ off switch for a electric dimplex small stove model number 6901050100


Some hardware stores, electrical supply stores, radio shack, are a few places I would think of trying. Take old one with you to make sure same amperage/voltage rating.

Hi, I don't know what the reset switch on my dimplex ofc2000ti looks like, anyone any ideas? Power to unit but not heating up, all connections inside fine. Hopefully it overloaded and tripped.


Turn the Master On/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall receptacle. Leave it unplugged for 12 - 15 minutes. That should give it enough time to reset itself. Then plug it back in and give it a try. Also, make sure that the wall receptacle is working properly and hasn't tripped the circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel. If it did, something is seriously wrong electrically, with the heater.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please don't forget to rate my response to your question.
Thanks!

Light working but when the heater is turned on the breaker trips


The heating coil in a lot of this style heater is a springlike coil mounted in insulating holders. I am not sure about your particular heater but what has usually been the problem with these heaters is that the coil has broken and shorted to earth. Turn off power at the trip and remove the heating element cover and the electrical cover on the heater. If you can not see any physical damage put an ohm meter between the element and the earth screw in the electrical connection box. If the meter shows any continuity the element is faulty and needs to be replaced. Hope this is of some help.
Regards,
Andy.

When you turn on the drier it trips the electricty. there is power in to the power switch but when you turn the dial it trips the fuse box. the model is TC7103W


an electrical earth leakage will cause the trip. possibly the the heating element. but the motor or wiring fault can do it. you could try disconnecting the heater if the electric stays on. then change the element.
