SOURCE: I'm having a problem re-fitting the drive belt to

After some mild swearing, I made sure that I had the belt around the drum aligned (in the same plane) as closely as I could with the drive pulley and tensioning wheel. I think this was partially achieved by placing the belt as close to that position as possible before lining up the front end of the drum with the cabinet opening, and then turning the drum from the front (through the open door) very slowly clockwise (the direction of its normal rotation) to give the belt "time" to align itself fully with the smaller pulleys. A short prayer and a few minutes later, the machine was humming away with all parts playing their "part" in beautiful harmony - without the dreaded sound of a thin black drive belt cluncking to the floor of the metal cabinet.
Cheers,

Is it a big job to replace the heater element on the Simpson Sirocco 350 dryer?


It won't be the element unless a wire from it is grounding against the casing. You most likely have some sort of issue with the home breaker.

Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer cuts out after 5 minutes I am told it is the heat sensor attached to the red button inside the door but not sure how to access the sensor to replace it.


Its probably NOT the sensor causing the problem. Have you checked the fan belt, that its not broken, come off the pulley or stretched? Put your hand over the airvent outlet at the back after it has been running a few minutes, if there is a lot of hot air coming out, then belt is ok. If not, replace the fanbelt with a new one, and problem will be solved. The sensor pops out because of overheating - usually because either the fan belt is broken or stretched, or the lint filter is blocked. Hope this helps!

I'm not sure where you can get one as i am in australia but an appliance spare parts outlet should have one or order it in for you,alternatively try simpson or electrolux.

Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer not heating


I repaired my broken fan belt with a drop of super glue - there is virtually no load on the belt and it now works perfectly again. A 30 sec quick fix.

Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer not heating


there is an oval cover on the back of the dryer. Remove this cover and you will probably find a broken fan belt. A replacement costs about $20 Aus.

NOTE: If you have been using the dryer for a while in this condition there will certainly be moisture inside the dryer. Replace the belt and leave the dryer for a few days to dry itself out (motor and electricals) before firing it up.
