Question about Dryers
All vents are clean
hotpoint aquarius ctd40p
reverse action condenser dryer
serial no; 707020236
when dryer is on no heat is being generated hence no clothes are being dryed
You need to check the heater element and thermostats which are lolcated behhind a removeable panel at the rear of the dryer..
You will need a meter to do this. Remove one wire from each thermostat and with the meter on the ohms range, test for continuity,if the stats are o/k you will get full scale deflection on the meter., if no movement then stat faulty, you must replace both stats at the same time.
take note which stat goes where as it is important you get them the right way round.
If stats o/k then the heater element is probably faulty.Plz rate my solution.
PS, make sure all filters and vents are clean
Particularly the filter at the bottom left, remove it and wash it out under running water.
