My Proforma dryer is about 5 years old. This weekend, it stopped

This answer was rated:

My Proforma dryer is about 5 years old. This weekend, it stopped collecting lint and it takes a very long time for the clothes to dry. Over the weekend, we removed the back and vacuumed out the lint (there was very little) from around the fan.

Thank you!
