Hoover apollo 320 clothes dryer

This dryer is only blowing out cold air, and when I pulled the thermostat at the back out it appears to be burnt out on one side. I am having great difficulty in getting any sort of price to replace the part and re-install it myself, or even find the nearest spare parts supplier closest to my area (Doonside, NSW)

    I have the exact same problem - I have the thermostat sitting on my bench, but can not find a supplier for spares. I am in North Canterbury, New Zealand. How did you get on in the end?

A good Start to clear it up is "repair clinic.com" Sounds like a heating element. Repair Guru will let you know if it is a real problem to fix.

SOURCE: hotpoint tdc62p changed thermostats as blowing out cold air,

Make sure that all filters are properly cleaned, and that the air inlet and outlet vents are clear. Make sure water container is empty.
The best way to clean the filter at the bottom is to run cold water through it, this will clear out all the lint.. Make sure you have the correct stats ( there are many for the hotpoint range) and that you have them in the correct position on the heater back plate.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Check the following to address this issue.


Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.


Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Make sure that both poles of your circuit are live - An electric dryer uses 220 volts to the heating element, but taps into only one pole (110 volt) for the motor that spins the drum. Check your circuit breaker to make sure that neither pole has tripped.

SOURCE: How do I change the

Remove the top cover by removing the screws at the back of the machine and sliding the cover off forwards. Now you need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum and under the bearing retainer, which may entail removing the back cover as well. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor or the tensioner.

Most electric dryer problems not heating are due to the heater coil circuit being broken. The wiring can be replaced by the coil kit being purchased from an appliance parts store. Need make and model numbers. Follow directions in package.

I have a Roper gas dryer (RGS7646KQ2) which is not heating up to dry clothes. The drum turns and the timer works as well. It appears to be acting normally, except it is blowing cold air instead of warm...


You have a bad thermostat, flame sensor, thermal fuse, gas valve solenoids, or the high limit thermostat. Below is a video to walk you thru the diagnostic testing and repair.

Hoover Apollo Delux not drying properly and takes ages. Outlet air is hot but my wife says it's not drying as well as it used to. The front filter is clean but is there an inlet filter that I'm overlooking...


T^o much lint in duct work, causing moisture and not allowing cloths to dry. Vacuum out duct work in dryer and from dryer to outside of home.

OUR KENMORE DRYER BLOWS OUT COLD AIR


It's most likely a thermal fuse if it's a gas dryer. very easy to install. If your dryer is electric, it's either the thermal cut-off or the heating element itself. If you need help with anything, please feel free to e-mail me. good luck :)

Will not heat, it only blow cold air, how do I change the heating element inside the unit


If the drum turns, it could be as simple as a blown fuse or breaker. The dryer has doule breaker or fuses at fuse panel. If the one blows, the heater will not work but motor willturn as motor rums on 110volts. It may be cut out thermostat or could be element, but check the power to the plug of dryer out let and make sure you getting 110 volts on from neutral to both sides and 220 between two live lines.
