Hoover TC650 Tumble Dryer will not heat up

The dryer tumbles but will not heat up my husband has checked the connectors to the heating element and there is only 12 volts being fed to it, does anyone know if this is correct. I have told him to buy a new element for it, but he says it is a waste of money if there is not enough power going to it, he thinks it should be 240

Hello,
Not all that familiar with the Hoover Dryer line but in general if you have 12 volts being fed to the heater element.. you identified why it isn't heating .. Your husband is correct in that heater power should be line voltage.. You may have a non-resettable thermal fuse that has opened or a relay that feeds power to the heater is not being commanded to turn on by the logic on the control board. If your husband is handy and technically competent, he should verify that there is 220VAC at the input termnal block of the dryer itself ( carefully) to make sure you don't have one phase missing.. Those are the chief suspects... not sure that helped you but you now have a few ideas where to look...
Regards,
Rick

My hoover tumble dryer Hnc175 wont heat up,is still working as normal, just no heat, i have cleaned out the filters and still not working


Heating elements can fail. These are relatively easy and economical to replace. The heating element is not necessarily the culprit if your tumble dryer does not get hot, however. There are thermal overload cutouts fitted to many machines. If they fail, the current will not be passed to the heating element. Replacement is again, fairly straightforward.
Tumble dryers will often have thermostats fitted. A heater control one, and an exhaust thermostat. The first keeps the temperature correct. The second, as its name suggests, monitors the temperature of the exhaust (in case the airflow in the machine is impeded) Once again, replacement is not too much of a problem.

Please look, at the link above, it will show you how to perform troubleshooting. procedures and repair.
If you feel you don't want to do it yourself, please call a Hoover Tech, and get it looked at. Ask for a "Quote" for the repair, so you get an idea of whats what.

A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to get to the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter

If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly

In your case it is better that y ou call in an engineer to test it. Also overloading and blocked filters can cause the thermostat to cut out and they can also go with simple wear and tear. Check your service manual for spare parts etc

There is no heat


Disconnect power and access your dryer fuses. Check and test your fuses for "continuity". Most likely, a white thermal fuse. Can possibly be your ignitor or heat element as well. Is your dryer gas or electric?
