  • Hoover Vision Tech VTV 590NC-80

    Mrs complained that dryer drum stopped rotating and there was a buzzing noise and slight smell of electrical burning. Before these symptoms the user pressed the start button, there was a delay of about one second and an associated kind of buzzing sound before the motor kicked in. With the tumble dryer moved to the garage (and empty) I tried to replicate the fault without any consistency (sometimes it would be fine others not). With the lid removed I applied slight resistance to prevent the drum rotation and the symptoms returned. Not aware of any particular bearing noise but was wondering if a damaged bearing would offer enough resistance to prevent the motor from kicking in. Any ideas or tips greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like a failed capacitor, if you push the drum with the lid off does it then start to turn? Capacitor is not expensive but a bit of an a**e to change on these.
    Nothing really matters much, and hardly anything really matters at all.

      Spot on diagnosis. Bought a generic capacitor from White Goods. It was actually quite easy to replace. Worked a treat. Thanks.
