When replacing the dryer stats you always replace both because they come in a kit. And to check which one is blow you do a continuity test.. Thats what i alway do....

Where will I find the heat reset button on my tcm580 condenser dryer


Hello Mandy, I am not sure what you mean by a heat reset button; perhaps explaining what the problem is, I may be able to assist you. Are you referring to the dryer motor's overload reset button? As a safety feature, a dryer has a high-limit thermostat and either a thermal fuse or thermal cut-off fuse.

In the event of poor air flow where there is no proper ventilation to the heating element- the internal temperature of the dryer exceeds its high-limit, the dryer will shut-down; once it cools off, you should be able to run it again.

However, if the thermal fuse (located on the blower housing) or the thermal cut-off fuse (located on the heater housing) goes, the dryer heating element will will not heat up or the dryer will stop running altogether.

Please note, a dryer will have either a thermal fuse OR a thermal cut-off fuse, but not both.

By-the-way, there has been a recall on certain models of HotPoint Creda, and Indesit tumble dryers due to a fire hazard risk; I am sending you the link...If your dryer is manufactured by HotPoint model TCM580, then your dryer maybe affected. Read the info in the link- it'll give you instructions on how to determine if your specific dryer is affected and what to do.

My hotpoint tc71p is buzzing and not working ?


If the belt is not broken it is the capacitor on the motor that has gone it is more than likely built into the motor .Which will need changing.

Hotpoint Aquarius TCM570 - This unit is just over 12mths old!!! The heat function has ceased to work, it still spins etc but there is no heat. I've read on a previous posting relating to the same tumble...


Always disconnect power while working on unit....to easy, disconnect the two wires from the fuse, take black electrical tape and tape them together, test dryer if it works then disconnect taped wires and buy fuse install new fuse. Here is a website that should help, Tim:

Hotpoint vtd20 dryer aquarius - cuts out when overheats


You can get spare parts on line by going to,
www.hotpoint.co.uk
Re your other prob ,it is probably due to a fault with the heater, disconnect the heater and run the dryer .if it does not cut out then your heater needs replacing.

Thermostats do not have a reset
IF the dryer has failed by overheating, the device is called a thermal fuse, it is a one-shot protector, and needs to be replaced.
If the thermal fuse has blown the dryer is likely {expletive deleted} with lint and needs to be cleaned.
STILL require make and model details for replacement instructions
