Question about Frigidaire Dryers
How did the fire dept. classify it, and who did they recommend you to contact?
1. An electrical fire....electrician
2, A lint fire....Qualified service technician
3. A clothes fire...Your user's manual
You have experienced a major anomaly and this would require a thorough inspection by a qualified technician with a degree in thermal dynamics, or you could just buy a new dryer.
You need to find out if the fire started, then tripped the breaker, or did the fire start because the breaker failed to trip in time? Regardless, a dryer is usually junk after a fire. The drum would generally have soot in it and rubber or felt seals would have some permanent odor. Internal wiring and other components fail because they are not built to withstand high temperatures.
I am very concerned to know why your breaker did not trip in time to prevent a fire. Please make sure you have an answer to this question before you hookup another dryer, and maybe I will get some sleep. Here's to your safety!
