CIC60 01 tumble dryer only works if on/off button is held in

Hi, my CIC60 Candy tumble dryer will only work if the on/off button is held in. I have bought and fitted a replacement momentary switch, but exactly the same thing happens. Has anyone come across this problem before?
Hope you can help.
Regards, Catherine.

Re: CIC60 01 tumble dryer only works if on/off button is...

Is the new on/off switch new or second hand if its new get it exchange cause these switchs have a spring in them with 2 channel cutouts in them once depressed when it starts to come back up it automatically goes into another channel which keeps it on faulty switch thats all it can be if secondhand again take it back cause its faulty this is the only thing it can be they are simply made so they dont mess up try doing it when its not on the washer love peter

Hi, My candy CIC60 tumble dryer has stopped drying and the empty water light is constantly on. The timer works. I have cleaned all filter,emptied water, checked for loose wires and I can not see a problem....

Tumble dryers are really not around my neck of the woods however I have studdied them just in case they do begin to show up around here. What turns on the light and kills power to the dryer when the water tank is full? A float switch. I bet that float switch is stuck. Probably something simple like that.

Dryer not tumbling

A broken belt is very common. If you hear the motor running, that's probably it. The dryer must be taken all apart to replace the belt. Hopefully instructions will come with the new belt. Routing the belt over the motor shaft and around the tensioner is always a challenge.
