i have a problem with our tumbler. been doing a few searches on this excellent site, and have a few ideas, but would like this confirming as i'm not an expert.
machine is about 18 months old. a couple of weeks ago it became very noisy. i checked it and found both fans, the one at the back, and the one in the tunnel had become loose on the splined shafts, so i replaced them. all good - for a while.
then, the other day, the wife said it stopped and wouldn't restart. then it did. it did this the next day to me. i swore at it, emptied the water tank, swore some more, and it started. yesterday when she started it up, we noticed it wasn't heating. i noticed too that the power cable had stuck to the back cover - something's been getting a bit hot!
i checked the 2 little doo-dah's by the elements. one has clear continuity, the other is dished and has an open circuit. before i order these - am i on the right track?
i am not an electrician, but i am an engineer with a bit of 'leccy knowledge.
ta muchly in advance.
