1 Identify the correct cord type by looking at the receptacle in the wall. You need to match the cord to the kind of receptacle. If you don't already have the correct cord, you can buy one at any well-stocked hardware store. Step2 Know the wires' functions. It is important that you understand what each wire does, so you can wire the machine correctly. The two outside wires (usually red and black) are the live, or "hot," wires. The middle wire (possible white) is neutral. A fourth wire is a bare ground wire, and is usually labeled as such at its source. Step3 Make sure you have the correct breaker box installed. You should have a high-quality 220V breaker that is in good condition. While you technically do not have to turn off the main breaker to wire the dryer, it is recommended that you do so for safety reasons. Step4 Identify the different breaker buses. You should know which are the ground, live and neutral buses. Step5 Connect each wire with its appropriate bus. The neutral wire should be connected to the neutral bus (both are in the center position) and securely tightened into place. Do the same with the live wires and with the ground wire, if one is available.

Hi,

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Checkto see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in?Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses twofuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if onlyone of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of thetwo circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer areconnected.

Heating element Oftena dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breakeror blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of specialwire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuitymeans the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heatingelements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse Onmany dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct insidethe back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usuallyembedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If thefuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring Acommon problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at thedryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can stilltumble with partial power, the connection may be only partiallydefective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer andthe terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

How to fit creda thermostats


It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to replace the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious burning out or open circuit. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down we will try and cover as many as possible in or video tutorials section. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses and thermostats which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected and have a bimetal strip inside them. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter.
The problem is that if a stat (thermostat) or t.o.c. (thermal overload cut-out) has gone open circuit, it may be for a reason. Overheating could have caused it by not being able to vent the air due to a blockage some ware. Blocked filters or even the machine not being allowed its ten minute cooling down period, Overloading can cause it as well. Sometimes they can go for no apparent reason. A blocked or severely kinked vent hosecan also cause overheating.

Not heating up


Hi

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house -- Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element -- Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse -- On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring -- A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Creda Reversair Sensa Dry Tumble Dryer produces no heat.


There is only 1 heater element, and normally one thermostat.
they are located at the rear of the m/c, behind a removable panel.
If you are not sure whether it is the element or stat, join the two
wires togeher that go to the stat, if the heater then works, replace stat. if no heat, replace heater.
plz leave feed back for this solution.
Thanks.

No heat to tumble dryer


Check the thermal disc with an OHM meter. One will be next to the heat element (high limit) and another on the air exhaust area which is the low limit.
