Question about Miele Dryers
Burning smell like gunpowder
Posted by Anonymous on
Make this test and fix it. God bless you
Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ducts and/or replace the cycling thermostat.
Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork . It will have 4 wires connected to it. 2 wires opposite each other will be closer than the other 2. The ones that are closer together should have continuity if it doesn't replace thermostat

check the power cord itself, if you see on the back side of the cord a burnt or blackened spot then the cord is the issue
