Hi, - The first thing to do is UNPLUG THE DRYER!
You are probably refering to the rear Stats.

Remove the heater cover situated on the back panel. It is the curvey shaped panel.
Remove all the screws and the panel may be slightly stuck - just prise it off.

Next - there are 2 small screws holding the heater and thermostats assy onto the back panel. - Remove these to free the assy from the back panel. Be careful not to touch the elements as they break easily.

You can now access the Stats. Replace them noting the correct positions.

Re-assemble the Dryer being careful with the elements.

Now - Why has it tripped? If it has overheated it is because of one or all of the following.

1. The Condenser unit is getting blocked - Remove and clean under running water like a hosepipe or tap.
2. The door filter is not being cleaned
3. Sometimes opening the door to check if the clothes are dry and then not allowing the dryer to cool down can cause the problem. Always allow it to go through the cool down process.

Hope this helps. The Heater and the Thermostats are available as Spares - Terry

Fit felt drum seal to zanussi td4212 w tumble dryer


I take it that the belt is ok and the drum is turning.The heater comes with thermostats fitted as a complete part.There is an overload safety thermostat which is situated inside the drum and above the door,it is held in place with a self tapping screw then prise open the plastic cover and then the thermostat will pull out,if replacing remember to refit the small gasket.Have you checked the filters and exhaust hose for any blockages as this will affect the heating.

Hope this helps

My hotpoint ctd00has stopped heating up how do i


You will find the thermostats located at the rear of dryer.
Remove cover, and you will see them adjacent to the heater element, change them both, even if only 1 is faulty.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Tumble dryer not getting hot


Likely to be a thermostat or heater element problem.
These are located at the rear of the dryer, behind a removeable cover, but you will need a test meter to check them out.
Hope this helps.

If you are getting 240v on all element connections then you are missing a neutral and the element will not heat.
Please check this and post your findings.
Thankyou.
