Simpson Clothes Dryer is smoking from the back

But it still works... Are there any obvious things that might be causing this? Especially ones that I could check easily. Thanks Rodney

    took it into the back off and couldn't see anything, so I then took it to the repair man he simply applied some oil to the motor (and somewhere else - drum I think) and cleaned the flint out of the motor...

    Seems to have done the trick

You should check your vent. is your vent in the front or back as some Simpson can vent in the front or back. You may be pluged with lint. safety therostat should shut down if too hot. but the lint may catch on fire. please check it before you use it again.. let me know what you find out? krazytech

Where does the spring clip onto for a simpson ezi loader 5kg clothes dryer

Hi, I too have one of these dryers & have also found a spring, along with alot of fluff, some staples, & remains of the rear seal inside the dryer. must be a manufacturing fault by the looks of things, the spring was bent & twisted & must hold the seal in place. I would say it will need to go to the repair people for replacement. also note the fluff (remains of the seal) had an area where it had burnt from the heating element & could cause a fire.

Fan in the Simpson Sirrocco 500 clothes dryer doesn't work.

It is both easy and cheap! I do believe there is a cover on the back of this model hiding the drive belt for the fan. It has iether broken or come off. If it has come off and lint or something of the like was not the cause it is quite possible that it has stretched and will require replacing =)
