Start up procedure


Check your vent duct, it may got clog inside there. Take off your vent duck from the rear of the dryer. Turn on the dryer again, if it is hot, your vent duct is the issue. Else, you need service man to take care of it.

Dryer gets hot to the touch


If you didn't install new venting I'd start by checking the vent hose from the back of the dryer to the outside vent hood to make sure there is no blocked airflow. Could be something else but that is where I'd look first. Good Luck.

Neptune dryer


there is no transformer in the dryer, i am guessing you have a 110 v motor and when you hooked the plug wrong, you could have supplied the motor with 220 v that's why you can smell something burnt.

the heater is 220 volts. regular dryer has dual voltage supply. 110 v and 220 volts.

tnx 4 using fixya,

  •  turn your breaker off then back on.
