Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

Burning smell after hitting the reset button

My Fisher & Paykel top loading dryer stopped drying the clothes as appears to be a common problem.  After cleaning all the hidden lint I hit the reset button and within a minute started to get a nasty burning smell.  Help I am afraid to use it and have it sitting unplugged.

The lint may have moved into the motor/ or other areas, clean the unit again and have another inspection, checking for burn't wire etc.

Hi.

There is no reset circuit.

Parts that must be tested are high limit thermostat and timer board.
The timer board is replaced if it is visibly faulty, or if there is no problem elsewhere.
The high limit located near to the element is tested reading impedance with a multimeter set at Rx1. If there is no continuity , the thermostat must be replaced.

Before testing parts check the lint filter, and ensure that air ducts are clean.

Regards.

Squealing Fisher Paykel Dryer DE05-US2


dryer's have a long belt that runs around the drum. a common culprit is an idler pulley on the belt tensioner. you can take off the front of the dryer and oil it for a temp fix. it will probably need to be replaced
