Question about Dryers
Hi. I have a defy tumble dryer from South Africa. Firstly I cant get parts here in Australia. secondly I cant get it repaired at a reasonable cost after sourcing the parts from SA.
My problem is, the belt that runs around the drum had cut. I managed to buy 1 from SA and bring it over. My hubi put the new belt on and it worked for abt 10 mins and then it started to blow just cold air after that. we went to a repair company here, they tested the element and said its blown, and they dont have the same size so we must get it from SA and they will fix it. We bought the new element and now we find out the element is not the problem.
What could be the problem? Why is it only blowing cold air?

Check that you have 220v first. Your dryer will work on 110V but will not dry. You need to check all thermostats with a ohm meter (be sure to unplug dryer), they should be 2 ohms or less. Set ohm meter to 1x. If they are good go to heating element (your ohm meter should be on 1X as wel. You need to check to make sure you have continuity (however, this does not mean that it is not bad). You need to take it out and visually inspect it to make sure it has no breaks in the coil. If it does you can buy a rewire kit for runder 30 bucks for most models.
