Question about Candy CIV60 Electric Dryer
The on/off button does not seem to be working, it will not stay pressed in... is there an easy way to fix this myself?
I had this problem too. I removed the top panel - it slides out (three screws at the top rear). This exposes the electrical wiring at the top front of the machine. ENSURE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE MAINS PLUG BEFORE YOU START. Three screws hold the button plate to the front panel. Slide off the top side pieces and remove the the three screws holding the front panel to the top. You can the lean the front panel out (its still held at the bottom) to get at the screws (take care not to drop them into the machine).The click mechanism is sealed and cannot be dismantled.
You can then use strong (duct tape or gaffer tape) to tape the push button in the on posistion. Or you could place strong tape with some sort of stiff material over the inside of the top button aperture. Alternatively without having to remove the top panel push the on/off button in fully and slightly to the left. The button will then jam in the opening. I'v also heard of someone jamming the switch in by using a cocktail stick between the aperture and the button.
FOR ALL THE ABOVE SOLUTIONS YOU MUST HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE ON/OFF BUTTON BY REMOVING THE MAINS PLUG OR HAVE IT IN A SWITCHABLE SOCKET.
I will shortly be going to Maplin Electronics to see if I can source a replacement switch.
