Check to see if the new parts fitted are o/k,
If they are, then your problem is probably a faulty control unit or possibly bad connection in the wiring.
If the new parts are faulty, then something else is causing them to fail.
Make sure all filters are clean and that all air vents are clear

My Hotpoint tvf770 starts but does not appear to heat and it stops after a few minutes. I have checked the filter and exhaust tube for blockages, both clear.


Suspect a broken/burned off wire to the heater element, or 'open circuit' of the heater element, or thermostat fault

My hotpoint ctd00has stopped heating up how do i


You will find the thermostats located at the rear of dryer.
Remove cover, and you will see them adjacent to the heater element, change them both, even if only 1 is faulty.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

My hotpoint aquarius dryer is not got any heat


Most likely reason is failure of thermostat/s or heater element.
As you do not specify model, Ir is difficult to tell you exactly where to locate them, but generally speaking they are at the rear of the dryer.
Hope this helps.

Not heating and no manual. Need amnual


If drum turns and no heat.
If unit is electric, look for:

1. Safety tripped or malfunctioned at heater elements.

2. Burnt out element. Wire has come loose or burnt off due to loose connection.

3. Clogged or restricted exhaust. This causes a safety to activate and stops the heating process.

4.Timer malfunction and needs replaced.

5. Improper voltage to unit. Reset breaker and verify proper voltage to unit. (Usually between 208 to 240 volts depending where you are located and the manufacturer of the unit.

Please keep in mind that in many cases, it is cheaper to buy a new unit that it is to repair the exsisting one. Do you homework on this. I've gotten real good dryers at about $200 from places like Lowes.

Hope this helps and let me know how things work out.

Heating elements will not heat


If you dryer is running but not heating then you may have one of the following problems.
Make sure you have 220-240 volts to the machine. If one leg of you breaker has kicked you will only be getting 110 volts this will cause the dryer to run and not heat. Simply kick the breaker off and back on to fix.
If you have enough voltage then you may have a bad thermostat, thermostats or heating element. I recommend you take your heating element off and look for broken lines.check continuity if possible. If the heater is good then go to the thermostats. Check continuity. Replace if you find a bad one. Good luck and I hope this helped. mca0824@aol.com

Hotpoint TDC62 condenser dryer does not heat up My hotpoint tdc62 does not heat up. I had it for approx. 5 yrs, have changed the thermostats(years) before,but have come up with a new (recent)problem. when...


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

Hotpoint TDC62 condenser dryer does not heat up


your thermostats have most likely gone they are situated at the back of the machine on top of the heater

No heat


hi there
your problem is either the t-stats have blown which is very common or your heater is blown..

im guessin your t-stats beacuse they are the most common on hotpoint dryers to blow. There always blowing

They located at the back of the dryer behind the protuding panel so there for you dont need to open it all up just that panel.

To check if their blown check for continuity,, no continuity no good merry christmas cheers

Heating element


this could be a partial faulty heater element, a 2 heat element could only be working on 1 element, this can overload the other one causing it to keep switching on and off at the thermostat, sometimes this can be normal but saying as you think its not hot enough, check you have the settings correct on the heater options, i have seen stranger things happen test element contacts for both circuits unplug machine first
