Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Is there an overheat reset switch on this model
There is typically not a reset for heat.
Some MAY have a t-stat that has a small red button in the center that can be reset, but doubtful. If so, you need to find why it over-heated.
That said, there are many causes for not heating when it still runs.
1) Power. Motor runs on 115 V, heat on 230 V. If you have partial voltage to the dryer, this will cause your problem.
2) Heating system has many components in series, any one of which will cause the problem.
