Question about Hotpoint TDC32 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have just replaced a broken heating element on a Hotpoint TDC62, put all the covers back on, and tried to switch it on - but it won't work. I've changed the fuse in the plug, but still nothing. I have a feeling that theres a circuit breaker somewhere that may be tripped when you remove the covers, but don't know where it is if it has one...or more iomportantly how to reset it

There is no circuit breaker in this dryer as such.
Establish that you have got power to the m/c, if you have, then could be faulty door switch, or you may have inadvertantly pulled a wire off somswhere.
Try the dryer in another socket and make sure you know that the fuse is a good one.

Hotpoint tdc62 thermostats keep breaking


It cannot be that the thermostat fails unless there some fault in the circuit or wiring . You need to recheck the lines to the element and the thermostat from the controller., check if there is any leakage or cross connection. Also it is possible that the loss of heat is due to faulty harness or wiring or connectors. Remove and plug back all leads and connections.

My hotpoint oven is not heating up but hobb and grill working fine is it the heating element?


If you have a HOTPOINTelectric Cooker or Fan Ovenwhich is not heating it could be one of the following problems.
1, If the fanmotor inthe back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normallylittle red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new ovenelement, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from ourwebsite these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the HOTPOINTelement youwill have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you willsee the fan and element,if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where ithas blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuitie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.

2, If your HOTPOINTfan oven is getting warm buttakes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than theother, then you need to check if your oven fanmotor is working you will seethe blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fanmotor isnot blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fanmotor is a little more expensive and a bit moreinvolved.
3. If you have theopposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then youwill need to replace your HOTPOINToven thermostat

4, A quite commonand easily overlooked answer is if your HOTPOINToven is not working at all ie:no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer intoAUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

Hotpoint EG900X rear round heating element


If the fan is working, but there is no heat from rear element, then the element needs replacing.
Remove inner rear cover of oven, you will see the element there, remove, and replace.

Hotpoint TDC62 condenser dryer does not heat up Hotpoint TDC62 drying light does not come on. It flashes briefly when you press the start button but then goes straight off. Why? If you tap the machine the...


Most likely, the orange relay switch (Schrack RT314024) on the circuit board of the dryness module (blue colour) is faulty. RS electrics and Farnell has it. Costs £2.50. Mine had the same problem and changing it sorted it. I also replaced all the four small electrolyte capacitors on the circuit board (which you don't have to replace - I am a bit fussy with capacitors).
Your thermostats and heating elements are good (don't change these).

Hi,
I think the problem still lies with the thermal switches, they have a tendancy to corrode where the spade connector attaches to the body (see pic)
Hope this helps......Dave26db4bc.jpg
