If you remove the back cover of the drier with the appliance un pluged, you will see the heater bracket.

un screw this from the back panel, and at the top you will see three thermostats. There is a brown one with a small hole in the middle, if you use a pin and press in, you should hear a click. This resets the thermostat and you should be able to use the drier again.

Apparently a common fault on these indicit based driers.

it worked on mine

** remove power from ANY appliance before comencing investigation **
On ours, the thermostat with the hole could only be found by removing the screws that hold the heater assembly, as the hole was not vissible without doing this (it appaered that there were only two silver thermostats, when in fact there are definately 3.
pushing a pin through the hole gently until a click was heard and then reassebling the dryer cured the F-10 and F-8 issues.

Thank you soooooo much crash. I'm a mere feeble woman and short of cash too, so calling out a repairer was out of the question. I've followed your instructions and its working perfectly. I am sooo proud of me too for biting the bullet and tackling this myself. xxx

Posted on Nov 14, 2009

Many thanks, this was very helpful.

Side note, ours only had 2 thermostats, in our case it was the brown one on the left, with an hol in the middle, this clicked when pushed with a pin.

Thanks again

I had an hotpoint ctd85 that triped the rcd, found the mica holding the heater elements in place was damp (beyond repair) replaced with new heater now ok. prior to that i also re-soldered most of the joints on the control pcb this seemed to cure the fault codes associated with the heater relay

Keep getting a f9 and f10 code . how do we fix what do they mean

1) F9 and F10 appear to be element failure/ Call for service

2) Copy following link for more GE Hybrid Geospring resources:

3) Call GE and they will tell you to call for service:

4) 2009 service manual says you can clear fault codes by pressing Filter, Lock, Vacation button sequentially within 3 seconds. Scroll to clear all fault codes using arrow keys. When that is highlighted, press Filter, Lock, Vacation again.
Others report this does not work, so it may depend on model. Or maybe buttons need to be pressed simultaneously.

5) GE does not want folks working on their own water heater.
Do not buy expensive water heaters you cannot fix yourself.
Average service call for GE heat pump is $400 which helps defeat anticipated savings from buying hybrid.

My water heater shows error code c-4 it starts for 3-4 min then stops. what does this code mean?

Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem error codes, chat, and possible solution:

Error codes are start-point for troubleshooting.
C4 11 can mean no ignition:
Simple solution for this problem can be to clean burner and combustion parts including sanding any carbon deposits off of iginiter.
Other simple things can be loose wiring on gas solenoid, or improper grounding, or low gas flow or gas pressure.
Other causes can be bad gas solenoid, bad igniter, misaligned ignition parts and sensor, bad igniter wiring.

As you know from reading your product manual, tankless require yearly service. This service can prevent many common error codes before they happen.
Typical do-it-yourself maintenance can be accomplished using following pdf

Error code e2 on Rheem tankless water heater

e2 is not shown among common error codes:
Error e2 might be: Brownout condition or too low of voltage to thermostat. Double check wiring and check for 24 vac between R and C. E2 will clear 15 sec after proper voltage is restored.

Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshoot resources including Rheem chat and typical generic manuals and common error codes:

Model number and serial number are required for Rheem contact, and then they tell you what error code means without saying how to fix it, and then tell you to call service technician.

Tankless water heater manuals each say to have qualified technician perform yearly service. Most causes for common error codes are covered by yearly service.

Yearly service is fairly standard in the HVAC and water heater industry with advancement of high-tech 'energy' saving appliances. Of course all costs are energy, and the service call probably costs more that the 'energy' saved by energy-saving appliance. But with high tech stuff like tankless, it is good to have a reliable service guy who knows your machine.

Says sytem been tampered with code 0176

0176 error meaning the system cover had been opened. To fix this error, you need to enter CMOS setting or BIOS setting. press F10 to save before exit. Then the error will be gone.

Did you ever open the system cover before this error happened?

Hotpoint ultima tumble drier condenser has F 10 error code

Error code F10 means common feed of heater or thermostat open circuit.
You need to test the thermostats and the heater element for continuity.
You need a multimeter to do this, assuming you know how to use a meter,then set it on the ohms range for continuity, remove one wire from each stat, and test with meter across terminals of stats,
You should get FSD if stats are o/k.
If you don't, then you need to replace both stats, even if only one is faulty.
It is unlikely to be the element that is faulty, as they rarely fail.
Plz rate my solution.

Dont know what the fault codes are for my Hptpoint Dryer CTD80

F10 indicates that the heater is open circuit, or the thermostat is faulty, more likely to be open circuit thermostat, you should replace both thermostats.
Also make sure that you clean the filters regularly

This should solve your problem.

Hotpoint ctd 80

The error code F10 is common of heater open circuit or one shot thermostat open circuit.
F8 is indicating static heater relay contact welded closed.
You need to call an engineer.
