Hi, this is quite a bad problem, what is happening is when the motor tries to engage it's drawing too much current and blows the breaker. Most likely you have a bad motor?

What does overload mean?


It means you have overloaded, ie: forced too much, or, too heavy a load through the machine and rather than burn up, or seize your motor, an overload sensor/ switch has tripped. I'm not familiar with your machine but there is often more than one level of protection in a circuit. Some reset automatically, some have to be reset with a small pin and others might even have a fuse. First, unplug machine and do a visual to identify and remove any obvious sources of the jamb. Second, plug it back in and start with a lighter load.

Hi I have an Indesit is70c dryer it seems to work fine for 10-15 mins but then trips the fues box in the house as it cuts out. I've had a look for at the fuse and have cleaned out all filters / condensers....


Do not overload the dryer as the motor can struggle and try to draw to much power.which could cause the trip to go to out, only load drum half full.....this applies to washing machines as well"NEVER OVERLOAD THEM" with washing machines it can affect the quality of your wash as well as putting extra strain on the motor.

Hoover Tumble Dryer trips out


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Whenever this fuse goes bad it'll either trip the circuit breaker or the dryer wont heat. You can also check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means the fuse is bad and you need to replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

BELTLESS BRUSH WILL NOT REVOLVE


I bought my parents the exact same model. Do you have the floor select switch "ON" for the brush? Did the overload protector switch trip? There is a little red button sticking out from the right hand side of the head. Check to see if it is pertruding past the cover. If so, push button in and it should reset.

Wont heat up


I know that Karchers steam cleaners have had issues with the thermal overload. I have repaired Karcher machines that got turned on with no to little water in the tank and it would heat up really fast and trip the thermal overload. The thermal overload is to reset it self when it cools down but the problem has been the thermal overloads get stuck and dont reset. When they stick, they will give the same signs you have said. In those cases the thermal overload has needed replaced. The thermal overload did its job to trip, but it fails when reseting. I understand you don't want to throw more money into it, but that is the only thing you can do. You can get the part and do it your self, but they are tricky machines to get into and you dont want to break something trying to get in. Hope this helped.
