Tdc30 start switch doesnt stay

My hotpoint tdc30 tumble dryer, start button doesnt stay when it is pressed. It keeps coming off once the hand is removed from the start button. Is it a start button problem or thermostat problem?

It is the door switch that is the problem.

SOURCE: Tumble Dryer won't start

assuming what you say you checked is correct and working then the next place to look is the start relay, located behind the front timer control panel, this sis more often than not a cubed shape box made of clear plastic with about 6 spade connectors on it, look for burn marks inside it, replace if looks damaged, do not attempt to bypass or short out to test, as you will blow the timer or and control circuit board and cause extensive damage

I think you may have a bad relay on the motor, where power is re-applied after the push start is released

SOURCE: hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

NO DRUM ACTION ON MY TDC30 BUT DO GET HEAT


When you start the dryer does it sound as if it is running but it does not tumble? Or does it make a humming noise?

If it sounds like it's running I'd check the belt first,
Humming noise and burning smell Dan indicate a bad motor or something stuck in blower wheel.

My hotpoint TDC30 dryer is cutting out after 3 mins ,the drum is warm inside and wont restart till its cold inside the drum


Hi joanne balla...
Sounds like the cyclic thermostat, thermostat, fuse (differnet names for the same part)..is faulty...replace it.
You will have to remove the back from the machine, look for the air tube going to the vent of your dryer and located on it will be the thermostat/s.
To test it, remove the wires fromthe two terminals and tape them together, then try running your dryer again and if it runs and heats ok then replace the cyclic thermostat/fuse.
Go to the following webpage to see the thermostat

Hotpoint aquarius condenser dryer TDC30


I would dry it just to be on the safe side, even though it doesn't say so. It can't hurt. The front t'stat should be under the top at or near the drum.

Tumble dryer when switched on cuts power to all sockets in house


Hi.
Try it with the heater disconnected, you will find it at the rear of the m/c at the bottom left behind a removable panel.
You may have to remove the top cover and the right hand side panel looking at the m/c from the front. Try it again.
I fit does not trip. then your heater is faulty.
If it still trips then you are probably going to have to call en engineer

Tumble dryer


You may have loose wires.
Check the door switch first.
Then check the wires going to it by opening the top or front of the machine, which ever opens to examine the switch and wires.
Also, check this link.........
