Question about Miele Dryers
Trip circuit breaker for two minutes and check the state of the lint filter.
If that does not help, the first step is testing and eventually replacing the thermal fuse.
The thermal fuse is located in the blower housing, at the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse cost is only few dollars. Before replacement it can be tested reading Ohms with a multimeter. If the multimeter set on impedance reads infinite Ohms (No continuity, same as on air), then the fuse must be replaced. A good fuse must read low or zero impedance.
If the thermal fuse is OK, the next parts to test are the thermostats. On Miele dryers there are at least two thermostats. One is a control of temperature, the other is an high limit.
The thermostats are tested reading Ohms at room temperature. If any of them returns no continuity at room, then the thermostat is faulty and must be replaced.
If the thermostats and fuse are OK, then the next step is checking the element and fan. The element is tested reading Ohms on solenoid with multimeter set at Rx1. If the tester reads no continuity, then the element is faulty. The fan can be tested jumping its contacts to energize it directly.
If all the parts listed above are OK, then wiring and electronic timer control board must be tested reading voltages at contacts.
The problem is likely the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats.
Apart replacing the part, ensure that the hoses are not blocked , and that there is no lint inside the machine. This may be the reason for the fuse blowing.
